Rawnet is a multi-award winning full service agency developing incredible products and services that redevelop markets and redefine industries. Our purposeful disruption reshapes businesses, making them more commercially successful and future proofing them for years to come. Our tight knit team are some of the best developers in the industry, developing cutting edge, experimental technology solutions in our bright and spacious office in Ascot High Street.

 

THE PRODUCT

ONE is a TV Screening System used by most of the UK’s TV Distribution Companies. It’s used by buyers to audition prime time TV content and nearly 70% of UK TV is first seen through the ONE system. More details can be seen at one.rawnet.com

It’s a little over 2 years old, but due to its success, we’re looking to expand the team and bring development skills in-house to continue with the roadmap.

The Rawnet approach is all about dedication to using the latest tools, techniques and best practices to produce appropriate custom solutions to solve the exciting problems our clients come to us with. If you’re looking to work in a buzzing, successful environment, amongst peers with huge experience and a real passion for digital, this could be the opportunity for you.

LIFE AT RAWNET

This is the part of the page where we talk about pool tables, Playstations, free food. We should show photos of awkward beer swigging and cake sales, along with a bunch of other perks and gimmicks that are usually just props for a lack of real culture.

So while we have all that (we’re still an agency after all!), nobody works here because of superficial benefits. Yes we have working from home, flexible working, amazing staff parties and training budgets, but again, that’s not why people love being a part of Rawnet.

The 4.9 score on Glassdoor helps.

But if we were to really think about it, ask around the studio, then it’s mainly down to being part of what we believe is the best digital team in the UK. Learning every day and playing a part in the continuous strive for personal and client success. No deadwood, no bumblers, no arrogant freelancers who don’t give a shit; just a solid bunch of passionate and positive people looking to make a difference. We all push each other to hold ourselves to a higher standard - and the rate of improvement among all levels is staggering. We all learn to think more strategically, more critically, more commercially. We all get involved.

Everyone is in full control of their own success, and there’s no better training-ground to be the best possible version of yourself than within a team who all think and want the same.

Attitude above aptitude


But we’re not for everyone. You’ve got to be a self starter, have a positive mindset, have resilience, put the team before yourself, and leave politics at the door.

We never panic hire. It’s better to have a hole than an arsehole, it doesn’t matter about talent if you don’t get on with the team and don’t love what you do.

So if you’re looking for a genuine change, not afraid to get stuck in and make some great friends, then go for it, we’d love to hear from you.

 


Please email your CV and examples of your work, with a brief description of your involvement in each project. All candidates will need to be able to demonstrate their technical and creative ability.

Please note you may be asked to complete a proficiency test before being invited to attend a formal interview.

STRICTLY NO RECRUITMENT AGENCIES.
