Leeds

Technology Executive

We’re excited to be hiring a Technology Exec. It’s a brand-new role to help us enhance the use of technology across the agency and will involve aspects of development and programming, as well as analytics and data.

Reporting to our Technology Architect (and working closely with the Technology Director), you’ll be responsible for helping to make existing processes more efficient by implementing technology, educating yourself and your team about technology, as well as creating your own tools and designing and developing technology solutions. You’ll be expected to reach a high standard in technical skills, particularly AI solutions.

You will:
Identify: Identify feasibility including creating proof of concept work and prototypes.
Improve: Work on scale and automation to improve the efficiency across the agency designing process and architecture.
Innovate: Research and develop new tools and products for the agency.

Good communication skills are a must as you’ll be working closely with different agency teams including Development, Data, and AIO. You’ll feel comfortable working with data and computing, alongside programming in Python, JavaScript, as well as some HTML and CSS. A degree in computer science or mathematics would be advantageous, although not essential.

If you’ve got experience using Tensorflow for Machine Learning and are proficient in Google BigQuery - that’s awesome - but most importantly, we want someone who is willing to learn and grow their technical skills.

If you have a genuine passion for the future of technology, then we’d love to hear from you. Drop your CV and covering letter to tech.jobs@homeagency.co.uk.

Leeds

Digital Designer

We're currently hiring for a Digital Designer to join our fantastic creative team at our Leeds HQ.

Your primary responsibilities will be all about creating engaging digital content and display advertising. The role will include using existing brand assets and overseeing how these will be cascaded across all outputs, constantly thinking about how a brand should look and behave across various device and display experiences.

Ideally you’ll have an understanding of HTML5 banner animation or similar, alongside an excellent working knowledge of Illustrator, Photoshop, and Adobe Animate Creative Cloud Apps - and if you've got experience with After Effects and Premiere Pro, then that would be awesome (but not essential).

On top of that, a proficiency in Digital Publishing Development techniques and processes, including emerging practices and display platforms (e.g. mobile, social, email, digital outdoor) would also come in handy.
