Based in Central London. A newly created business has been created. An exciting connection of leading figures within their industry have partnered with some of the the most talented people in tech and media to create a next-generation digital media platform dedicated to motoring and adventure and lifestyle.
The business aims to unlock the huge untapped potential in the digital sphere:  who until now
have not had a global digital platform of this type to engage with. They aim to launch as the digital publishing home for motoring – structured into different communities, along with bloggers, writers and videographers, that are immersed in the scene - who will all generate and curate their own content for fans. The platform  integrates some of the worlds best technology including machine learning and will support video, articles, social and interactive content – with users signing up to the certain communities that reflect their personal interests.

The platform relies on a highly advanced technology stack, enabling content generators to understand and segment audiences, optimise content for engagement, and publish it seamlessly into social timelines, directly growing audiences. It’s an ambitious play to create the next generation of media business, redefining how content is created, and how it is connected with audiences.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen in their London HQ. The company brings together a leadership team of successful entrepreneurs from the tech and media sectors, alongside world-class software engineers and product designers. 

This role would head up the product design team. They need someone with a deep experience of designing social/publishing platforms (Facebook/Instagram/similar) etc., as well as managing a design team and being the primary interface between design and the development team. Ideally looking for someone who is aiming to lead the evolution of the platform, so with half a mind on design excellence and half a mind on product strategy, focused on best practice and proven experience on an optimised approach.
