Want work that makes you happy? Take Boost for a test-drive

Choosing where you work is one of your most important decisions. The more you know, the better your decision. So why not try us out first?

Our Test-drive Boost collaborative hiring event lets you meet our team before you sign on the dotted line. On top of that, you get to see how we work by taking part in a series of collaborative activities with other candidates.

We hold Test-drive Boost events regularly throughout the year. Keep an eye out for the next date. This round we’ll be on the lookout for Team Coaches and Software Developers. If you are keen to get more details, sign up to stay in touch!

We’re looking for team members who:

  • have excellent communication skills
  • enjoy collaborating
  • are great at building relationships and working closely with clients
  • are eager to learn and grow
  • can take responsibility in all areas.

Here’s how previous test-drivers have found the event:

The most enjoyable interview type experience I’ve been to. I felt much more relaxed and natural solving problems with someone.

If the Test Drive evening is any indication of Boost’s company philosophy … I very much want to be a Booster.

A fantastic way to get a gauge on how employees feel about working for the company.

Exceptional … I felt very welcome, included and I thoroughly enjoyed the event.

Are you a digital UX/UI designer and keen to work in an Agile way? Joining us at Boost, you’ll collaborate closely with clients, developers and other designers, creating well-crafted web and mobile apps.

We’re looking for people with the enthusiasm and insight to create happy, high-performing Agile teams. You don’t need experience in the role. You do need to be empathetic and supportive, an outstanding communicator, a great collaborator and a creative life-long learner.
