Head of Product- Production

Role- Head of Product- Production
Company – Photobox
Location – London

We don’t sell ‘off the shelf’ products … we’re personal. Every single thing you buy from us is unique to you. The purpose of our great family of brands is to magic our customers’ photos, words and feelings into precious objects that make them smile, laugh and, sometimes, cry. We’re in the business of ‘one-of-a-kind’ and so delighting each and every customer is central to everything we do.

We are always moving forward, adjusting constantly with the market and to be even closer to our customers. We had humble beginnings, but always rich ambitions and we haven’t lost sight of that ‘start-up’ way of thinking. As such, we’re not afraid to make bold decisions and quickly change things if it’s the right thing to do – as employees, our roles are constantly evolving, and our priorities shifting to what will really make the difference. There are always new and challenging projects being launched, which at times can be overwhelming … but so much fun!
