We are looking for a Senior Designer to join our team at Forward Partners. If what we’re doing here is any good (and I think it is…) then it’s an exciting job on at least two levels. This is how I put it in an email to a friend:
Here at Forward Partners we are working with entrepreneurs from the earliest stages to build amazing companies. We offer a combination of investment and hands on support from our in-house team of experts. I would like to talk to you about being the design lead on that team.
It’s a great chance to play a leading role in designing the next generation of ecommerce winners out of London, and whilst we’re doing that I want to re-define early stage venture capital. It’s an exciting project and high quality design will be key to winning. It’s our belief that those next generation winners will succeed because they inspire trust and form emotional connections with their customers, and they will do that with a combination of great product and great design.
I’m reaching out to you because of your design skills, but also because you love startups and have given a lot back to the community. Our vision is to contribute to every startup success story in this country, some through investment, and many more by supporting the ecosystem through content and events.
If that sounds interesting to you or someone you know take a look at the job description on our website and get in touch via the methods listed there or let me know in the comments.
