Hiring a frontend developer and designer

Animorph is looking for a frontend developer and designer

About us

Animorph creates software which enhances human potential. Collaborating at the interstices of industry training, urban consultation, and medical software, we specialise in extended reality (XR). Our work takes many forms such as an immersive virtual reality experience, a wearable augmented reality rehabilitation tool, or a handheld mobile urban planning app. As a worker co-operative, Animorph exists to make the world a better place by forging productive relationships with purpose-driven organisations. We have been building together since 2016, and are excited to continue growing our team and worker co-operative as somewhere we can all thrive.

About the role

Animorph is hiring a part-time employee to work with us on a range of ongoing projects in tandem with our design and development team. We are looking for a fellow worker dedicated to a thorough collaborative process of thinking, feeling, imagining, and executing.

With us, you will interpret an aesthetic identity and functionally deliver it in alignment with the software mechanics and affordances we are building. Your aesthetic sensitivity and flare for exploratory visual language is required. While we seek novel interface metaphors, we prioritise simplicity and accessibility. You will contribute to devising user journeys in Figma and feedback on the assets coming out of the identity factory.

You will work exclusively on the frontend, collaborating closely with a full-stack developer and designer, and with consideration for the parallel backend development work. You will operate across various languages and environments, such as C# and Unity, through Vue.js, Three.js, HTMX to Django and other frameworks or libraries. While you do not have to know these well, you need to be confident with CSS and ideally Tailwind.

We will work together in our office close to Finsbury Park station in London, restrictions permitting.

We are a worker co-operative and we cherish listening and everyone’s voice. If you are successful we will onboard you to our operations and invite you to participate beyond design and software development.

About you

There are some essential requirements for the candidate:

  • Visual literacy: a distinct sense of visual aesthetics and typography paired with the digital capabilities to execute them, preferably having experience in a design-related field.
  • Development ability: a good grasp of frontend software development, particularly CSS and Javascript, with an ability to find your way around a codebase, preferably having experience in an IT-related field.
  • Agile: You can articulate your ideas and direction clearly throughout your process, and thrive in a constantly evolving working environment; focusing on creation and taking on feedback.
  • Learning: You are curious and eager to learn new skills, techniques, both in development, design and beyond, and improve yourself as part of a collective whole.
  • Values: You want your creative efforts to serve a larger purpose, and have a positive impact on people’s lives.


You will be employed by Animorph on a 6-month part-time contract for 3 days a week (7 hours a day). Everyone in the co-op is paid the same hourly rate.

After our first two months together we will review the scope of your work, with a potential extension to full-time. At the 4-month review we may offer you to extend your contract beyond 6 months.

If you have any questions about the role, please ask us for clarity via email: we@animorph.coop
