Job Description

We have a brilliant opportunity for a creative and visually-driven person to become part of our core team as a digital designer.

As an independent, successful app publisher, we are passionate about creating products that enhance people’s lives.

Our first app SnoreLab is a top-ranked health app that has helped countless people with their sleep and snoring problems. Since its launch in 2012, SnoreLab has achieved over 12million downloads, with a 4.5-star rating and Editor’s Choice.

Over the past few years, the creators of SnoreLab have been developing a brand new sleep tracking and smart alarm app called Sleepwave. Launched in February 2022 on iOS, this exciting new app features patent-pending technology that transforms any phone into a contactless motion-sensor. With revolutionary motion-sensing technology and beautiful design, Sleepwave has the potential to become a leading lifestyle and wellness app.

We are a small London-based team with an office in the heart of Shoreditch. We are looking for a talented individual who is a good communicator and has experience working closely in teams.

In the role, you will be producing vector illustrations, marketing materials, icons and brand materials for our popular apps. You will also be involved with UI and UX design and be a key member of the product team. As a company, our working style is very collaborative and everybody has input in the creative direction of our apps.

The role is varied and covers a lot of bases and is suited to someone who enjoys a challenge and likes variety. This position would be perfect for an individual who has a strong graphic design background, fluency in Adobe Illustrator teamed with a growing interest in UI design and willingness to learn new things.

What we offer

Deciding which company to work for is a big decision, so here’s a little more about us, how we work, and our apps.

A collaborative, developer-led company. Our founder and CEO Jules Goldberg is a passionate self-taught developer and inventor whose work has helped millions of people. Over the past few years, we have grown our small company of developers, creators and product-focused innovators into a team of over 10. We work collaboratively across all areas.

The office. The company is based in London, UK. Our Rivington Street office is located in the heart of Shoreditch and is a 5-minute walk from Old Street Station. We have team lunches and socials.

Hybrid working. We offer flexible working options and favour a hybrid model with ideally three days in the office.

Groundbreaking technology (really). Our in-house R&D team has produced some amazing, patent-pending motion sensing technology. This technology has the potential to be used in other applications beyond sleep tracking, so this is an opportunity to be a part of something special. We also provide all the technology and equipment you need.

Personal Development. Where relevant, we will support you on training courses to help your professional development.

Holidays. 24 days annual leave.

Growth opportunities. The company is looking to grow and with it exciting opportunities to work on new projects and expand your role. There are also annual bonuses.
