What we’re looking for is someone who cares about our mission and wants to make a real impact on the world of education and has an appetite to learn about all things Brand Design.

You will be familiar with our company mission, and our brand department’s vision. You’ll be comfortable with our company-wide processes, your role and contribution to the brand team.
  • In 6 months, you will feel comfortable handling multiple design requests and delivering high-quality creative assets in a timely manner, with a decreasing level of direct support from our Brand Designer. You will also have a clear understanding of the role you play in advancing our mission and the brand’s vision.

What we do

At Perlego, there are over 100 of us working hard to make education accessible to all. In this digital age, we believe that anyone should be able to learn anything at any time. Knowledge should be more accessible, not locked behind sky-high price tags.

Over the past 5 years, our goal has been to support students across the UK & Europe to access quality books. The next stage of Perlego is twofold: 1) expand our support to students globally, and 2) build a product that goes beyond the book, a platform that helps students study smarter and more effectively.

Beyond that, you’ll play a role in the growth and development of our newest brand team. By joining IRL and remote ideation sessions, creative events, and inspiration cadences, you’ll experience what it’s like to make creativity part of your day-to-day job, from executing a small task to participating in the shaping of our brand going forward.
