Who we are

We are an experience design company that works to improve the lives of millions of people all over the world. With studios in the UK, Singapore, India and South Africa, we operate globally.

We help businesses to develop and ship products and services rooted in user needs. We also partner with our parent company Zensar, a leading digital and technology solutions provider. Together, we execute digital transformation programmes for major brands.

We're welcoming new talent into the Foolproof fold, and want to ensure it’s just as diverse as the world around us. That's why we want to hear from everyone regardless of background, identity or ability. Different perspectives make us who we are and our work a success.

Onto the role
You’ll work closely with our clients, creating content strategies that support our experience design work. This means you’ll get close to what people want to know, and how businesses need to communicate in a way that’s meaningful and engaging. You’ll devise plans that are practical, user-centric, and sustainable over the long term.
During a project, you might advise on improvements to copy or marketing materials, or how a company should organise a content team for success. You’ll be happy talking about success measures or workflows in a CMS. You’ll get straight to the heart of any issue by looking at analytics, talking with users and stakeholders, and having a look under the content delivery bonnet.
