Description

Ocado is a pioneering online grocery delivery service that is revolutionising the way people shop for groceries. Unlike old-fashioned supermarkets, we don't rely upon a network of large chain superstores, but a 'centralised distribution' or 'warehouse-based' business model. We depend on innovative technology driven solutions to deliver our world class service. We're still growing fast, so we're always on the lookout for people with extraordinary drive, passion and talent to help keep us moving forward at a pace. Ocado exists to change the way people shop, giving back customers the time to enjoy their lives. This is a fantastic opportunity to come and join a fast moving and growing business in a fun & dynamic team who is always ready to do the extra mile. You are the type of person who says yes to change, loves being in a team, who gets things done & is the centre of change.

We’re looking for a highly visual, highly technical web designer capable of solving complex problems with minimal guidance.

Reporting into the Digital Design Manager, you will design, code and present commercially powerful digital design solutions across media spaces on Ocado.com, plus other web design and content projects as required (landing pages, banners etc)

We are looking for:

  • An inquisitive web creative with plenty of initiative and lots of common sense.
  • Someone who can lead the work of project teams and mentor colleagues with less experience.
  • A high level of visual aesthetics, including top-notch typographical, design and layout skills.
  • Someone who can help to manage relations with external suppliers.
  • Someone who’s able to create pixel-perfect designs across multiple browsers.
  • A designer who’s passionate about writing clean code and creating beautiful online user experiences.
  • Expert, up-to-date knowledge of accessibility standards.
  • Expert, up-to-date knowledge of HTML/CSS, media queries, responsive design and adaptive design layout for web, email and mobile.
  • Someone who can apply best practice and work with the business and external suppliers to add value in this area.
  • Expert technical proficiency in Adobe digital design software, including Photoshop, Fireworks and Dreamweaver (essential); Illustrator and Flash (preferable).
  • Krypton factor-grade problem-solving skills.

This is an exciting, demanding role in an ever-changing, fast-paced creative studio built on agency lines.

If you’re an ambitious web designer with strong coding skills and fancy joining a team that will give you massive development and growth potential, then please send us your CV and a link to your online portfolio.
