Senior UX/UI Designer (3-6 month contract)


We thrive off creating amazing stuff that kids will love to watch, read, play, make and share with their friends. We don’t limit ourselves to what that is. As long as it’s epic, awesome, hilarious and SO BEANO, we’re up for it. But we can’t do it alone.




We aim to solve problems which have seen media corporates go running scared. First up is Beano.com, entertaining a massive audience of kids on their own terms without annoying parents (too much!) via a daily dose of quizzes, videos and games.




To feed all of this creativity we’ve set up a suite of data and insight tools collectively called the Beano Brain, which informs our daily output. We are now working to productise Beano Brain and give commercial partners access to the tools and techniques that have powered the massive success of Beano.com.




Finally Beano wants to be a force for good in the world of kids media and our partnerships of the past year strongly reflect this - from the Beano Schools programme championing literacy, our Young Minds partnership promoting mental health to our participation in the Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign which encourages healthy eating.
