About Saberr

Saberr creates powerful, practical technology that helps teams thrive. We believe that great teams can achieve far more than were capable of individually, and that it’s teams that will bring about humankind’s greatest leaps. They also make for better businesses, healthier margins, greater progress, and happier individuals – so we make products that take the guesswork out of building and developing them.

Founded in 2013, we were driven by a deep curiosity about how people interact. We realised that the right algorithm could help predict how compatible teams of people would be, based on their shared characteristics and values. From this, we created our first product, Base, lending scientific support to the process of interviewing and hiring

What began with meticulous data analysis quickly evolved into a deeper appreciation of the subtleties of optimal teamwork. Diverse personalities in a team are good – but when does diversity just become friction? How can you strife-proof an existing team? And how can we improve processes like making decisions and setting goals? Humans are complex, but with the right data, we can vastly improve our understanding of a team’s interrelationships – and the quality of the team itself.

So, in 2017, we launched CoachBot, the worlds first digital team coach, putting practical, powerful strategies and exercises for optimising teams – quite literally – in the hands of the team members themselves. Whereas Base is aimed primarily at people responsible for putting teams together, CoachBot provides useful, friendly and effective learning directly to individuals, giving them the tools to strengthen their team from the inside.

Drawing on thousands of hours of research, working with many dozens of team coaches, psychologists and academics, and partnering with more than 100 managers and teams, we distilled this knowledge into a completely new functional toolkit for teams, prototyping and testing along the way – and it’s already revolutionising the way businesses approach team coaching.

Thats kept us pretty busy. Our team has grown from two people to 12, and we currently work with businesses including Unilever, Sony, NHS, Deloitte, Virgin and Lloyds Bank. Big things are on the horizon – which is why were checking our bearings, shoring up our brand and charting our course ahead.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for an exceptional Visual Designer to bring consistency across our brand. The role will be offered as a full-time, minimum 6 week contract, with a view to extend if things go well.

  • The designer will help solidify our brand with a consistent style and visual language to apply to our product and marketing.
  • They are intellectually curious and able to communicate reasoning with users in mind.
  • They enjoy the challenges of working in a fast-paced startup and are able to shift gears at a moments notice.
  • They have a good understanding of UI design from previous work with product and UX designers.
  • They have experience creating strong and long-lasting visual identities for organisations.
If you’re a collaborative and creative visual designer with a track record for creating beautiful brand experiences, we’d love to chat!

The Brief

Over the last year we have been iterating fast to get our product to a solid baseline that teams want to use. We spent more time working out what it does rather than how it looks. Marketing materials, UI components, the website, they all look different. Using our existing (non-visual) brand identity document, you will help us to resolve visual inconsistencies across all touch-points, re-working and creating new assets where required to strengthen the Saberr brand.
