Working Details
This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week). We typically work from 09:00 - 17:30 from Monday to Friday, though we can be flexible around this, just let us know.
Our ideal candidate would be based in/near Edinburgh, but the marketing team is international and hybrid, so this can be a remote role in the UK. We make the most of hybrid working in our Edinburgh office, with most of the marketing team working from home 3 days a week, and coming into our office to connect, make use of space, and for meetings.
Join the team!
Equality of opportunity is more than just a responsibility: we believe it’s a huge advantage to welcome a variety of experiences and perspectives into the team. Diversity is a great asset and, as such, we strongly encourage applications from any background.
This is your opportunity to influence how we get things done, how our product is taken to market, and how we tell the Dayshape story and vision.
Everyone here is growing personally as the company grows, so if that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, we’d love to see your application.
