However on almost all given days, you won’t be on a tv shoot.

A week in your role will never be predictable, which, if you’re the person we’re looking for, is exactly what you’re looking for.

Co: is looking for an alchemist. One who uses code, pixels and circuits (rather than sugar and spice or snails and puppy dog tails) to create golden experiences for people and golden growth for our clients. Someone who is happy defining how technology can affect the core business, the culture as well as the actual products and services we help bring to life.

You will be part of a pod looking at solving big problems for clients and often society from the lens of technology and the how people will experience it, always alongside strategy, content, community and threaded together by a collaborator. Along with this lovely team you get to work on a daily basis with some of the best people in the world from a wide range of co:conspirators making every day a new challenge and a new learning experience.

Who we are looking for:
You think in systems. You have as many projects that you have built for yourself as for clients. You can impress people at parties with how many ‘languages’ you know. You love to take really complex technologies and concepts and translate them into simple language for everyone to understand and build upon. You really, really, really love to work with other people. You know creating big impactful things requires time and different approaches so you are happy rolling up your sleeves in both powerpoint and an IDE.


The types of things you will be doing:
In your role you will be looking at the macro trends in technology alongside the things that are bubbling up on the periphery and finding new ways that those can be leveraged to create new experiences and businesses.

You will be strategically advising clients on how technology can be valuable and grow their business and create new opportunities to connect with customers.

You will be creating technology architectures which will form
the basis of change.

You will be defining new experiences which will make people’s lives better, and that they will truly enjoy using.

You will be working with some of the best technology firms in the world, planning and scoping the design and implementation of new platforms and services.

You will be solving intricate problems between code, hardware, user needs and business needs.

You will be constantly playing with code and bringing ideas to life in tangible forms with prototypes and experiments.

You will be inventing new technologies which will feed back into
this cycle.
