Benefits and Important Details

We're looking for someone who holds a solid design education, covering the fundamentals of graphic design. You'll have 3+ years experience as a graphic designer, ideally in design agencies or product companies. Salary will be between £25,000 - £35,000, dependent on experience.
Our mission, culture and the work itself all make for a great working environment. However, it's crucial to us that our employees feel valued and supported, so we have put a lot of thought into ensuring your job is that bit sweeter. Some of our benefits include:
  • Fantastic training and development opportunities. We love helping our employees up-skill and develop themselves, so we're committed to funding training and development opportunities. We've helped employees complete CIPD, Shillington and SANS courses, to name a few.
  • Generous holiday. We offer 28 days plus Bank Holidays per year, with a Christmas shut down.
  • Great equipment and software. All team members use high spec equipment, and the latest software to make working enjoyable and easy. Plus, we can kit you out with any peripherals you may need.
  • Flexible & remote working options. We were operating as a remote business long before covid, so we're well accustomed to working this way. We also have an amazing office in the Cotswolds with an on-site gym, fully stocked drinks fridge, and all the snacks. A few of our roles are based here, but either are an option.
  • Private healthcare. We offer Vitality health insurance, which offers perks such as free cinema tickets, discounted fitness trackers and discounted gym memberships.
  • Referral programme. If you introduce us to an amazing person who joins us then we'll pay you £500 to say thank you.

  • A bigger team. We're part of a collection of companies (including Spinning Fox, Magnetic Rock and Secure Impact) which are run by the same leadership team. There are lots of opportunities for shared learning, and some epic summer parties.

About Helical Levity

We're the team that built CyberStart, a gamified education product for young adults.
Teaching cyber security to 13-18 year olds is hard. Really hard. It's a challenging subject that requires an unusual delivery mechanism to be effective for this age group. That's why our team built CyberStart, an innovative platform that gamifies cyber security education, and has now been used by over 200k students. In this, students take on the role of an agent in the cyber protection agency and get to hack, forensicate and code break their way through levels filled with a rich narrative, immersive design and realistic security labs. You can have a go here: CyberStart Go!

Our team combines a team of passionate and talented designers, developers and security researchers. Most of the team work remotely, but we do have an amazing office in Ascott- under-Wychwood, if an office environment is preferable for you!
