Summary

Are you smart? Passionate about learning? Unsure where your degree would be best used?

Storm Ideas work with globally-recognised clients in the US TV industry on extraordinary digital and marketing projects. Every day we produce work that is innovative, challenging and enjoyed by millions of people!

We are looking for a junior content developer with smarts, attention to detail, and a love of US TV to assist in achieving our marketing objectives for 2021 and beyond.

About us

Founded in 2008, we are an Edinburgh and Warsaw-based team that works with incredible clients all over the world, particularly in the US TV industry.

Whether it’s developing our own products, producing engaging social content en masse, or designing and delivering services to help our clients work more efficiently, our work is varied, exciting and at the very forefront of the latest technology and trends.

Currently, we are a growing team of 80+ people but still looking for new colleagues who make an impact and believe in the same ideas and values as we do.

What do we believe in?

We believe that the smart and hard-working can achieve great things. We have hired many people who initially had minimal technical knowledge but are now thriving and playing crucial roles in the success of the company.    We believe that happy people are productive people. We believe in a lightweight process with no time-tracking. We believe in autonomy, mastery and purpose. We believe in small teams of talented people that take ownership and responsibility for their projects. We believe we are a perfect place for talented people to grow, make their mark and work on things that mean something.

How we work?

You’ll be starting work between 9am and 10am, and finishing between 5pm and 6pm. You’ll have a daily standup with the team of the project you are working on. To best serve our US clients, we are looking for people who can work at least two late shifts (1:30pm-10pm, in office) per week and at least one weekend day (from home) every three weeks. So, some days you’ll need to be flexible to work later if there’s a key delivery to a US client, but any time can be taken back.

While we have an office in Edinburgh, we support 100% remote working for this role, with the opportunity to work in our office when suits.
