Lead designer

Oslo, Norway

You became a designer so you can explore and create something meaningful. You challenge established rules and you like the tricky questions. AmmaCreative is looking for a person just like this to be part of our creative team as a design lead.

The problem we’re solving is how to show employers when professional creative freelancers are available. Sounds simple? Well, this is a tricky task that nobody has solved in a good way. At the same time, the solution we’ve built so far has already become a life saver for numerous hiring managers within the creative industry.

"Good design is: innovative, useful, aesthetic, understandable, unobtrusive, honest, long-lasting, thorough, environmentally friendly and as little design as possible". We agree with Dieter Rams.

Up until now, our team consisted of a creative developer and a creative CEO – now we need a design specialist who not only agrees with Dieter Rams but knows how to bring in all of those principles to the product and understands how to design with as little design as possible.

Background for the problem we’re solving

When an employer in the creative industry wants to hire a freelancer (Director of Photography, Editor, Sound Mixer etc...) it’s really difficult to know who’s available. They spend hours calling all of their favourite Creatives, in hope that someone isn’t already booked. This makes hiring a time consuming and difficult task.

Our solution

AmmaCreative provides employers with a real time overview of their favorite Creatives’ availability. Top Creatives connect their regular work calendar to our unique booking platform, thereby automating the process of showing availability and adding calendar events. This lets employers find and book their favorite Creatives in seconds, rather than hours.

We are not another marketplace. We are creating the tools that are streamlining the production process for both Creatives and employers.

Since our inception two years ago, large production houses such as Fremantle, Monster, ITV and Warner Bros have incorporated AmmaCreative into their booking process and we are now launching AmmaCreative internationally.

Why are we doing this? We believe all Creatives deserve to create great stories, and we want to provide them with time to do so.

This is you

Take the role as our lead designer/CDO and create a unity of idea, planning, function, user experience, graphic design and final execution. This unity is a living product, continuously changing and improving. Design starts with strategic planning, looking at our big vision. We will work together as a team breaking down our vision into small iterations – releasing improvements and adding value to our users step for step.

You will be our third key employee to be part of our strategic planning and the future development of the platform.
