Bit About Us

Starting out as 3 passionate persons 7 years ago. KandianPRO has come a long way to become an international firm with an all-star team of designers, software developers. engineers and business professionals operating from London and Colombo. It is that journey through thick and thin that molded us into the digital marketing powerhouse that we are today.

Over the years we have assisted many businesses and startups across numerous industries. with unlocking their true potential.

We’re looking for a multi-talented, many-hat-wearing digital designer to help us build incredible websites (and lots of other things) for our clients. to make a positive impact on the world.

Your Role

You’ll be working mostly in WordPress, and mostly creating websites and web apps. Sometimes you’ll design, sometimes you’ll develop {front-end), sometimes you’ll do both. You should be comfortable with everything that falls under that umbrella: Wireframes. design mockups, writing code, creating custom post types. configuring page builders, capturing dark wizards, launching sites. and all the odds and ends that come in between.

You’ll interact every day with our project managers, strategists. other designers. developers. and anyone else involved in bringing an idea to life. You’ll almost always be working on at least a few projects at once. sometimes in different capacities and deadlines.

We promise to itch both sides of your brain. 🙂

Things We Consider

  • While this list isn’t entirely comprehensive, these things are pretty important to us.
  • You should know WordPress like the back of your hand. And the front of your hand. And the gap between your fingers.
  • An excellent eye for visual design, and a great instinct for UI and UX best practices
  • Experience designing responsive websites using industry-standard design tools {Figma. Sketch, XO, etc.)

  • Bonus!: Experience with other content management systems. Javascript frameworks. app design

This isn’t a junior position. We need someone who knows what they’re doing, is able to work independently, take responsibility, and solve problems (even super weird ones). In terms of years of experience. we’re looking for more than 3, but less than 120. Even better if at least some of those years were at an agency, or running your own freelance business.
