Help us make a better digital future
We believe digital has the power to change the world. That’s why we’ve assembled an awesomely talented team to help brands transform the way they do business – and make day-to-day life easier and more joyful for consumers all over the world.
We’re all about celebrating unique skills and personalities. Join us and add yours to the mix. In return, we’ll do everything we can to make this the best job you’ll ever have.
"This place is full of talent. Transformative ideas come from everyone at every level, it’s a real team approach."
"I like that no day is the same, I've been able to work across a number of different projects and clients and I feel like there is a lot of variety."
“At Great State I have access to the latest technologies that empower me to best solve our customers challenges.”
"I’ve grown so much since starting here 3 years ago and it’s completely down to the instructive but supportive manner of my managers."
“Great State is an enjoyable place to work with loads of room to grow and learn new things. I like the people I work with, the autonomy and office vibe in London. Plus free beer!”
What’s great about it?
We’re one of the UK’s most awarded independent agencies, so we know what it means to make great work. We’ve been doing it for more than 20 years for a vast range of clients, from the impressively global to the passionately regional.
Our experts across every digital discipline are dedicated to working with today’s most cutting-edge tech, refining their craft and creating work that makes a difference.
We celebrate collaboration. Our multidisciplinary teams are diverse groups of specialists across all disciplines, from development to creative, strategy to UX. Together, they deliver projects as an agency within an agency working with a small handful of clients to understand their needs and solve their challenges.
That means, while we’re big enough to do work that’s internationally recognised, you’ve also got the opportunity to stand out for your individual contribution.
We don’t have a type. Great Staters are free to be themselves. From the headphones-on get-it-done introverts, to the bang-up-the-tunes chatterers and noise makers who keep the place buzzing.
You won’t find any big egos here, either. We’re passionate about doing brilliant work that we can all look back on with pride. That means learning, failing and succeeding as a team.
Creating great work requires freedom and fun. We believe in encouraging both.
Work your way, whether you want to have a space of your own, hot desk, stand, sit, wander, ponder, stick things on the wall – whatever helps you do your thing. You can also get involved in our social calendar, which is packed with events, from annual boat parties and love-in away days to ad hoc office shin digs, barbeques and bake-offs.
Yes, there’s free fruit. Yes, there’s a cycle to work scheme. And the ubiquitous Friday beers. We offer all the nice touches you’d expect in an agency, which is cool. But we’re also on top of the really important stuff.
For a start, we regularly review your performance and salary, making sure you’re progressing in your discipline, developing your knowledge and skills and feel supported doing so. You’ll also get a generous training budget that’s dedicated to your own personal development.
"We’re an ambitious bunch at Great State. There’s no fear of failure, just a real drive to do brilliant work.”

If it makes your life easier, work from home a couple of times a month.
If you like having your hound around, that’s fine by us.
Make a difference
If you have a cause you care about, we're all ears. We’ve already switched to recycled toilet paper and fair-trade coffee.
