  • Communicate with senior team members to receive feedback
  • Liaise effectively other team members

Skills Required:

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Adeptness with leading design software packages (Illustrator, Photoshop, Sketch)
  • A determination to achieve and succeed
  • Creative industry experience
  • The ability to meet deadlines in a high pressure environment and iterate quickly if needs be
  • A background of working as part of a design team
  • The ability to see projects through from inception to production

  • Good organisational skills that support the rest of the team
  • The motivation to maintain and improve design standards

Knowledge of InDesign, After Effects for illustration animation and Videography are a bonus.

​Our Culture

Modestly speaking, the best job you’ll ever have is here at KOMPAS. We’re all about pushing you to be the best that you can be, and doing everything that we can to support you along the way. We’re an inclusive, well-rounded and culturally diverse team, with many nationalities and languages being included in the mix.

Our office is rarely boring, and you’ll never leave the office feeling low, that’s our guarantee to you. Let’s just say that we’re fairly confident that everyone who’s a part of KOMPAS could almost certainly find employment in stand-up comedy if this travel stuff doesn’t quite pan out.

​​Where you could be working

Have we mentioned that we’ve got copious amounts of coffee and tea in the office, and that we make sure you’re always stacked up on free fruit. After all, those vitamins are important. Plus, each week there’s breakfast served on a Monday, and on a Thursday you can tuck into a locally sourced slice of pizza and a can of beer.

We’re based in Work.Life London Fields, and we love it here because of the community, so even if you don’t like anyone in the office (that’s genuinely not possible), you’ll get to meet lots of other people (and the odd dog) around.



  • 23 days of annual leave
  • Competitive salary
  • Opportunity for a slice of the pie
  • Free fruit, tea, coffee, water and other great drinks
  • The best environment you could ask for
  • Yearly team retreat
  • Opportunity for mentorship
  • Ownership of your work
  • Office in the heart of Hackney

Your Team

You’ll be working with the rest of the design team as well as liaising with the marketing team to assist with marketing campaigns. You’ll have the opportunity to put your full set of skills to use working in an innovative environment. You’ll be based in our London offices.
