Who we’re looking for:

  • A keen bean – you’ll love planning, plotting, & having ideas that you make a reality.
  • A curious type – you’ll be inquisitive and want to learn new things as you go, particularly all things digital.
  • You’re up for some fun – we’re here to enjoy what we do & want you to add to the fun too.
  • You enjoy getting the little details right – from taking on UX & UI design and functional spec documents, you’ll be the one to help us make sure it’s right first time!

So, enough about you…here’s a little about us.

Working at Pretty Pragmatic:

We help our clients realise the full potential of their marketing activity & understand how to capitalise on it by being proactive, clear, & agile to their needs.

We have 6 internal principles for how we work:

  1. Give & Take – we’re not a rigid 9-5 place. ​We work in real life – if you need to start a bit later or finish early, we can make it work. Just don’t take the mick.​
  2. Make It Happen – we’re small, so if you have a good idea, don’t be afraid to be the one to make it real.​
  3. Basics, Then Brilliance – do the basics well.​ Then find ways to go beyond.​
  4. Strive To Stand Out – we like competition. There’s no shame in wanting to be the best.
  5. Win Together, Lose Apart – we help each other whenever we can. It makes a big difference.
  6. Pride Over Profit – stand up for what you believe in, don’t just bow to a big budget.

Along with this, we offer 25 days holiday – we all need to enjoy some R&R!

We’re working from home for the foreseeable whilst everything is as it is, but we’re based in Bristol, so we’d ideally be looking for someone who would be able to work from the office once all this passes. We’ve got a lovely space right by Bristol city centre and a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station.
