Established in 2006, Simpleweb was one for the first companies in the UK to invest in the startups that it builds products for. In the last 15 years (it’s our 15th birthday this year ) we’ve launched over 100 products and invested in over 20 startups covering everything from global food waste, digitising education, to mental and physical health training. We’re a small elite team of people dedicated to constantly improving, embracing imperfection, regular reflection, and searching for the joy in everything that we do.
You give a shit. You care about the world, the people in it, and your impact on it. You have experience in dealing with people from all walks of life and your communication skills are exemplary.

You will be pragmatic, have a passion for digital technology and will not shy away from effectively and confidently managing a range of projects. You will be a great team player, have entrepreneurial spirit alongside a great sense of humour, a bucket load of common sense and enjoy delivering quality results.
