WHO WE ARE

We’re JTB Studios.

At JTB, each project is a careful cultivation of innovation, talent and technology. We are a passionate team of creative thinkers and problem solvers, with a flare for all things digital. A highly-skilled bunch of subject matter experts who take the specialist route, as opposed to the generalist one, when it comes to building our agency’s capabilities, products and services. We have a team of award-winning designers, experienced project managers, innovative digital marketers, and agnostic technical developers. 

We also pride ourselves on supporting people and fostering a fun and engaging working environment that makes you love to come to work. We focus on developing the individual skills and capabilities of each team member, understanding that no one person is the same, and offer competitive working conditions and experiences [did we mention there’s plenty of office doggos?). 

 

WHAT WE DO

 

With a cast of amazing clients from a range of diverse industries, including eCommerce, Finance, Property, Fashion and Education, no one day is the same at JTB. 

We not only do things like build new websites, scope integrations, develop data warehouses, design new customer portals, strategise new product & market launches, analyse campaigns, write content, and launch ads [let’s take a breath shall we], we also attend innovation conferences, collaborate with our agency partners, write research papers, conduct user experience tests & conversion experiments, speak with our client’s customers, and offer really great restaurant recommendations. 

We’re an agency that’s always looking for ways to learn, develop and grow together, both internally as a team of digital thought-leaders and externally alongside our client tribe.

We are looking for a new Senior UI/UX Designer who shares a passion for quality and collaboration to join our expanding team of Experience Designers.
