With strong local roots, but an international footprint, Friday Media Group is a great place to work. We’re a positive bunch, full of drive and not scared of hard work, but there’s no hint of ‘corporateness’ – we prefer the relaxed and friendly approach.

You would be joining us at an exciting time, working alongside other members of the product team to research and develop our next generation of digital products, reporting directly to the R&D director.
