What we’re looking for

Seeking potential

We truly believe there is no wrong path into a career in tech. You may be at university and want some experience, taking part in a bootcamp, or maybe you’ve been learning in your spare time.

We’re primarily focused on people with basic knowledge of marketing, a good attitude, and who are passionate about multimedia content creation. If you fit into these three things, we encourage you to apply!

Working flexibly

With offices in central Edinburgh and Leeds, we’re looking for candidates who are available for hybrid working in either of these locations (in the office three days a week).

This way, our interns will be able to get the full experience of life at xDesign, with a mixture of home and office working.

Embracing our values

With every application process, we look for people who embrace our values: we challenge, we care, we collaborate. Our people act with integrity and challenge our clients, and each other, in pursuit of better solutions.

We care about our craft, colleagues, clients and their customers. And we are all equal. Individually we are brilliant, together we are unstoppable.
