Job Description

Who we are

At MADE.COM we believe that everyone should have access to great design. So, we’ve taken a unique approach to making and selling furniture - no middlemen, no agents or importers and no high street stores. Instead we work directly with designers and manufacturers so we can offer high-end furniture at attractive prices.

It’s not an easy task – it takes a creative and dedicated team to make it happen where everyone has an important part to play. We combine our individual passions and skills to create innovative work that’s as exciting and unconventional as the business itself. It’s a place where all ideas are listened to, where brainstorming means job titles get left at the door and where a self-starter can really make their mark.

What you’ll be doing

Create fun and engaging motion-based content for MADE.COM’s key Paid and Organic social platforms—Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest—using Adobe Creative Suite, in particular After Effects and Premiere Pro.
Work in a growing, nimble team and be as autonomous as possible whilst adhering to brand guidelines - lots of scope for creativity
Repurpose assets from our archive of editorial and e-commerce shoots for use in organic social posts and paid social campaigns
Drive creative concepting with senior members of the Social and Design teams to help plan our social content calendar, while always thinking about shareability, and best-in-class creative
Elevate the coverage of MADE.COM events by capturing video on the ground or getting the most out of assets captured by 3rd party photographers and directors

Understanding of the process of asset creation within a commercial environment.
A confident self-shooter on a variety of cameras (be that smartphone or professional equipment)
