At Simba, we do things differently, and we're here to turn the mattress world around.

We're on a mission to create the best night's sleep for everyone. We want to deliver on a promise to offer unparalleled simplicity and customer experience. Do you think you can help us on this mission?

Our story started with a single piece of thread and has grown exponentially since then. As our fierce growth plans show no sign of slowing, we are looking for a Midweight Artworker to join the Design Team in our swanky new office in London Victoria.

We are looking for someone who is in love with design and has a can-do attitude and great attention to detail.

No shrinking violets here! We’re very much a start-up culture, so you’ll be diving straight into projects when you join. We are looking for someone with at least 2 years experience and experience within an in house creative team would be beneficial.

You’ll be working in a fast paced environment and joining a talented design team alongside a Senior Integrated Designer, UI Designer, Print Designer, Motion Designer and Video Creator, reporting into the Head of Design.

The job in a nutshell:

  • Your friends probably describe you as a perfectionist, but it’s only because you know that if a job’s worth doing, you might as well do it well. Layout, colour separation, retouching and an exacting eye for detail are all essential skills for someone interested in this role.
  • Image retouching - you’ll be an expert in photoshop, working on product shots, cut outs, lifestyle imagery, image comping and visualisations.
  • Design implementation - a big part of your role will be to roll out existing design work for different retailers, different languages etc.
  • You’ll have expert knowledge in the print process. Ensuring print material and packaging is all to the correct print spec. Same for digital assets.

Skills that we’re looking for:

  • Strong eye in typography, colour, and layout balance, paired with an understanding of digital channels and what drives customers to take action.
  • Thinking outside of the box - but within the toolbox. We’ve got a great brand that we’ll be evolving over the course of the next few months, and we want someone who’s excited by the chance to be the first artworker to use these tools and bring them to life.
  • Someone with a can-do attitude, great attention to detail and who’s unafraid to voice their ideas and brings them actively to the table.
  • We’re designing for people - so the user must be at the forefront of your thinking.
  • You think design helps solve problems and makes users take action - you’re fiercely practical.
  • Comfortable working in a start-up culture with a high growth/agile environment. A fearless problem-solver with a can-do approach who embraces constant change.
  • An artworker who is confident in the Adobe suite.
