Customer Support / Junior Digital Marketeer

Boomf lets you create personalised Instagram marshmallows. Since launching last November, we've surprised even ourselves with how popular they've been.

We’re looking for someone who can provide awesome customer service and wants to start a career in digital marketing.

Day-to-day your primary responsibility will be answering general enquiries and solving customer’s problems - all with a sparkle.You’ll also deal with partnership requests as they come in.You have the power to bring joy to people’s lives through marshmallows: don’t be afraid to use it!

You’ll work alongside the product lead and community manager, so there are loads of opportunities to learn and grow.We anticipate that once you get the hang of customer support, you’ll start to help spread the happy message of Boomf’s existence.

Our customers are hugely important to us.We want someone who can look after them brilliantly. You’ll be a friendly, creative and hard-working individual. Great written English is essential. Evidence of a flair for online communications (for instance running a popular blog,Twitter or Instagram account) would be a massive plus. Basic Photoshop wouldn’t hurt.

While customer service experience is preferred, this is a junior role. Most important is someone with the right attitude.

If this sounds like you, email your CV and tell us why you’d be great.

Developer

Mint is a product development studio. We make products people want and collaborate with great companies. We're looking for a developer to join the team and help in doing so. Currently we are 38 people total, with a tech team of 13. We're split across two offices in New York and London, but work as one team. (Yes, we do meet up at least once a year!)

We love building great software and are constantly reevaluating and improving our process. All voices in the company can contribute to this conversation. We've been working with Rails for years and it is still our go-to tool for many projects, but we are also strong believers in using the best tool for the job. Recent projects have used the following: Rails, Sinatra, AngularJS, redis, django, PostgreSQL, MySQL, mongoDB, JS, CoffeeScript, d3, Chef, Sidekiq, nginx, Ubuntu, git and more. We're looking for great developers, either front-end or back-end (or both), who have a burning desire to play with the latest technologies and get to use them in production. You might expect to see a long list of 'required' skills here, but we believe that a desire to keep learning is more important than the specific skills you have right now. Hopefully you have experience with some toolset, we're just not fussy which one. We're more interested in what you've produced than the tools you used to produce it.

Our working principle is to learn through making. Working with us, you could be creating a major TV-show driven site one week, rapidly shipping one of our own startup ideas the next and then working on a 4 Days 2 Launch hack the next. The software game moves fast and a great developer also never stops learning. We encourage this through internal tech talks, a great conference policy as well as our own events. We prefer all work to be collaborative and use pull requests liberally.

If this sounds like something that would get you out of bed in the morning, drop us a line to introduce yourself and explain why. We look forward to hearing from you.

Junior Designer

Mint is a product development studio. Working as an agency over the last eight years, we’re also now just as much about making our own stuff. Half the team working on solving the challenges of our clients, whilst the other half are creating new products and businesses of our own. The challenges are diverse: on the client side we work with TV companies, national retailers and international financial institutions; whilst our own products vary from printing Instagrams on marshmallows, delivering craft beer to offices and attempting to revolutionise the way we plan our holidays.

This provides an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to learn in all areas of Mint, and in turn, all disciplines of design. Having said that, your focus will be in visual design for screens (although there is often a print element to a lot of our proprietary work), but you will have the desire to learn more about what drives users and how we can enhance their experience whilst using digital products. You will have the opportunity to work with experienced designers as well as within other teams in the company, including marketing, product design and operations.

You will be a recent graduate with up to 6-12 months experience at a startup or digital agency, with a portfolio that has several examples of designing for screens and ideally one or two personal projects.

Sound good? Head over to our application form to tell us why you're as excited as we are. We can’t wait to hear from you.
