The Company

Sideways 6 exists to build better businesses through employee ideas. We believe that great ideas can come from anywhere and that giving employees a voice is the secret to business success.

Our company was founded in 2014 and has employees in London and Minsk, and its product is used by iconic global companies such as British Airways, Centrica, Kingfisher, Sainsbury’s, and AstraZeneca. These companies and others like them use our product to become more agile and innovative, find new revenue streams, reduce costs, make people happier and implement better ways of working.

We’re proud of our 5-star reviews on Glassdoor and it’s testament to the way we’re having fun and achieving goals at the same time. Everyone’s given responsibility, room to grow and develop, and the chance to be part of something special. The Idea Beer probably helps too…

  • Create user flows, wireframes, and UI mockups
  • Test proposed solutions with users
  • Establish and promote design guidelines, UX best practices and standards

  • Proficiency in Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, Axure, or similar tools
  • Excellent visual design skills with sensitivity to user-system interaction
  • Up-to-date with the latest UI trends, techniques, and technologies
  • Experience with SaaS/B2B a plus

What do I get?

  • An open and vibrant startup environment
