Come work at Mint. We're always on the look out for great people to join us.
Mint is a product development company. We’re inventors, strategists, designers, engineers and marketeers.
What is Mint looking for?
We’re looking for Product Strategists.
You’ll work on a range of projects across Mint. You’ll work closely with the team to bring ideas to life. You’ll be the glue between ideas, designers, developers and customers.
You’ll unearth market opportunities.You’ll shape ideas. You’ll figure out ways to validate products: surveys, interviews, focus groups, product pages, Kickstarter, analytics, whatever works. This stuff is crucial at Mint. It requires lateral thinking.
In the Studio, you’ll help educate clients on our iterative and lean approach to product development. You’ll work closely with clients to understand their business objectives and figure out ways to deliver processes and products that meet those objectives.
What might you have done before?
You might have been a Product Strategist. You might have worked at a startup or an agency as a Product Manager or Junior-Mid Creative Strategist. You might have a design or engineering background and fancy a bit of a side step into a more strategic role.
One thing you’ve always done is ask tough questions that get to the heart of a problem.
Ideally you’ll have some experience at the sharp end of shipping a product: designing UI, writing code, crafting copy. The tangible stuff that people see and interact with. The details that make a product truly remarkable.

Just fill out this short application form. We’ll be in touch soon.

Digital Product Designer
Mint is a product development studio. Working as an agency over the last eight years, we’ve always made time to work on our own products. Recently one of our products, Stickygram, was acquired. This gives us even more room to make our own stuff along side our client work.
We are looking for a designer with strong product thinking to come and join us in our London office. Lots of new ideas are going to be conceived and tested at Mint going forward and we need people who ‘get’ products to join cross disciplinary teams to bring these to life.
The design team at Mint is responsible for all aspects of design including product thinking, user research, prototyping, testing, interaction design and visual design. We need people who are comfortable communicating design ideas at the fidelity required, from a sketch on a napkin to live prototypes. We tend to look for people who combine a deep proficiency in either interaction or visual design with an ability to contribute across the board. The new team member we are looking for would ideally be stronger in interaction design.
The role also involves agency work, so the ideal candidate will enjoy the rigour of working on client projects. Mint has gained a lot from client projects over the years and we will continue to work closely with select partners to build great products together.
If this sounds like a good fit, head over to our application form. We can’t wait to hear from you.
Summary of our requirements:
- Experience of shipping digital products
- A strong product thinker
- Confidence in planning and executing user research
- Advanced executional skills in interaction design
- Experience in and a desire to lead client-facing design projects
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.
