Description

SIDE Labs is a small team with a big mission: we use design and technology to alleviate suffering, guide the vulnerable and reduce inequalities.

At SIDE, you’ll get the chance to grow and do your best work. We believe that Webflow, and no-code more generally, is going to be revolutionary for social impact.

In past lives, SIDE’s founders created Mint Digital. More recently, we created Design Club - a non-profit running design clubs for kids. We also run SIDE Academy, a ‘no qualifications, no experience’ training scheme that aims to bring diverse talent into the sector.

Requirements

SIDE is more than the sum of its parts. We are looking for a team player who will nurture others and enjoy the process of collaborative endeavour.

We know we are unlikely to find someone with all of the skills below, so we’d still love to hear from you even if you don’t match them all. Please note, we are looking for candidates who can work in London two days per week.

In rough order of priority, we are looking for:

1. Design skills

You can translate fuzzy requirements into something elegant and fitting the purpose. You'll care deeply about the visual design as well as the functionality, and have a keen eye for UI and good understanding of UX. You’ll be able to communicate visually with originality and excellence.

2. Webflow skills

You’re always learning, excited about growing your Webflow skills. You’ll help the team create stunning, accessible websites. We use the Client-first Style System and sometimes Relume (bonus points if you’ve got experience).

3. Other No-Code skills

We’d love it if your interest in No-Code extends to other tools too. Top of our list is Integromat (Make), Airtable and Typeform. We’d love it if you’ve got experience of connecting Airtable to Webflow via Make or Zapier, but we are happy to hear of other explorations and integrations.

4. Project management experience

You’ll guide a site build from start to finish. You’ll work closely with colleagues, clients and partners to shepherd projects from concept to completion.

5. User research experience

You’ll be able to see things from the user’s perspective. You’ll plan and carry out user research that maximises learning. You’ll synthesise this research into actionable insights, communicating them with impact and honesty.

6. Writing ability

You don’t need to be a poet, but tight writing is important to us. Whether it is emails or Slack messages, interface copy or research synthesis - we like it all to shine.

Benefits

  • Salary: £34k to £40k
  • Holiday: 25 days + Bank Holidays
  • Equipment: Computer, chair and desk (if needed)
  • Hybrid working: 3 days remote, 2 IRL
  • Professional development: £500 per year
  • Other benefits: Birthday off, quarterly team hike and more

Location

We are looking for candidates who can work in London two days per week.

We find it more fun and more creative to work together IRL. We work two days per week face-to-face in London (location is Victoria for now, but this may change soon). The rest of the time we work remotely.
