Who we are
Voist is a creative agency with a social focus. With our tool Mapify we are on a mission to make big changes to communities. Looking at the connections between people and places, we have been examining how successful networks of collaboration are constructed, enriched and nurtured. We collect data to tell stories of the flow and exchange of social capital and innovation.
Our aim is to harness information that influences the successful development of a community. To achieve this we have trialled and tested a number digital tools that we now want to take further. We are currently looking for a skilled data visualisation specialist to help bring our tool to the next level. The way data is visualised really helps to tell the story of a community and has the impact needed to make significant change. We want to collaborate with someone who has the skills and interest in telling stories with data to help us bring complex and crucial information to life.
Who you are – key skills and experience
We are a startup so in order to get by you will ideally need to be flexible, open minded, willing to learn and get stuck in, driven and able to act on your initiative. In addition to that, we ideally would like for you to start as soon as possible.
What we need help with
The job will involve the following tasks:
• Helping to design and refine data visualisations used across our tools and apps.
• Creating static visualisation to be used in workshops
A bit more about us
Voist is a startup consisting of a team of creatives who use their skills and experience to create innovative and lasting, positive impact. Collaboration and mutual creative support lie at the centre of everything we do. We believe that everyone has something extremely valuable to bring to the table and we try to maintain the ethos that there is always time to listen and share ideas. We want people to be driven to do great work because it makes them proud of themselves first and for the job second. Ultimately, as a company that promotes collaboration, we want to walk the walk – not just talk the talk. We will treat any working relationship as a collaborative process, one that can never be micromanaged, and should strike a healthy balance between organic and focused. Most importantly we want you to create work you are proud of and have fun whilst you are doing it.
We are based in East London and we love to have breakfast meetings, visit exhibitions together for regular inspiration recharges and occasionally release the beast (stress) with gong baths.
