Dear new Junior UX Designer,

It’s funny to think you’re reading this, even though we haven’t actually met yet. But, given that you’re the Junior UX Designer, who’s going to help take our amazing product to the next level, we just wanted to say hi. Ian, our Product Director, is especially excited to meet you - first because he’s great and a pleasure to work with but, secondly, because he knows just how fascinating a time this is to be joining Buyapowa, as we enter our biggest ever period of worldwide growth.

So, welcome to Buyapowa, new Junior UX Designer. We can’t wait for you to start.

This is what makes Buyapowa Buyapowa:

Traditional marketing is dead. That's why we're building what comes next - a whole new channel to attract and acquire customers that reflects the way that people discover, fall in love and shop with today's leading brands.

We're thrilled that more and more clients including BT, Vodafone, Formula 1, HSBC, Centrica, and Ralph Lauren are joining Buyapowa on this adventure, each and every day. But, cards on the table, when we started out over 10 years ago, we had no idea we'd become the global leader in what we do. And, while we've got huge plans for the years ahead, we're just as excited by the unknown future as we are by the storied past.

We love new people, new ideas, new skills, new angles, new problems and new solutions. That's why we're not going to say something dumb like: 'The ideal candidate went to this school, worked at that business and has this personality, that skillset and these boxes checked on their resume'. If we knew exactly what we wanted, we wouldn't need you. So come show us what we're missing.

We think these things are pretty obvious, but we're a bit grossed-out that no one else is really saying them:

  1. No one wants to be compelled to commute into an office anymore. That's why, while Buyapowa has offices around the world (and we love getting together face-to-face), we're fully committed to the virtual workspace, and we're delighted that our team gets to work wherever in the world they call home.
  2. No one's worked at Buyapowa until they work at Buyapowa. So, while we value experience, we know that the greatest experience you can have is the experience you'll gain once you start working with us.
  3. No one stops being talented just because they're in their 50s or 60s. We love fresh ideas, but we don't have a weird youth fetish like some other employers.
  4. That said, Mozart was composing classics when he was only five years old. So, if you're just starting out on your journey, that's amazing too.
  5. Apparently, the average person changes their career 5-7 times over the course of their working life. Between you and us, we think that might be BS, but either way: we don't care if this is your first and only career or you're embarking on change number 5, 6 or 7. If you've got the talent, we want you.
  6. We actively celebrate all forms of diversity, and we'll love the way you look, the things you believe in, the life you live and the people you love.

So, that's us. We love building the future and we love the people we're building the future with. If you're the future-building kind, and you've got the smarts to back it up, the job's already yours.
