Creative Technologist
Full-time remote / Based in European or Eastern time zone

This is a remarkable opportunity for a radical thinker to lead the range of technical outputs across infogr8’s purpose-driven projects. 

Our mission is to unlock the value of data for genuine social impact. You’ll be collaborating remotely with some of the world’s brightest data visualisation experts, and working on exciting visual experiences for the likes of Mastercard Foundation, Harvard University and Urban Ocean Lab

As the first Creative Technologist in the company, you’ll be a hands-on individual with a track record of thinking up, prototyping and building cutting-edge digital experiences. 

You appreciate the value of a close-knit, cross-functional team around you.  You enjoy communicating your passion for creative technology. And you have a meticulous approach for each intended audience. You’re confident in directing clients and teams alike, yet equally keen to get your hands dirty with code. You’re excited at the prospect of fostering the tech culture at infogr8, evolving our product offering, and driving FutureFridays – our weekly sandbox for creative data visualisation experiments without the traditional anchors of a brief. 

As someone who is naturally immersed at the intersection of technology, behaviour and data, you’ll have natural confidence and charm in researching, facilitating, sketching, prototyping and presenting solutions to technical and non-technical audiences alike.

infogr8 are now at an exciting growth stage. You’ll be hungry to continue this momentum across our creative design capabilities. In return, you’ll benefit from our sustainable work-life approach – choose where you want to work, and have client-free Fridays to focus 20% of your energy on experimenting with new themes, tools and devices, or applying new design thinking to bring even more purpose to what we do everyday.
