UX Designer
Job posted: 29th June  2020
 
Bamboo Clothing is a fast growth (a bit like bamboo) omni channel retailer founded by ex-professional pole vaulter David Gordon, some 12 years ago. David wanted to create a brand with values of putting people and planet at its core. He wanted to demonstrate to bigger brands that you can succeed by doing things ‘the right way’ and have a little fun while you’re doing it.
 
When David discovered bamboo, he knew he was onto something special. The fabric is supremely soft, 3 times more absorbent than cotton and made from the world’s most sustainable crop.
 
After a number of years of steady and strong growth we are building our teams (currently around 45 employees) in a bid to become an even more significant brand. And we are looking for an UX designer/developer to work within our small, friendly yet busy digital marketing team.
