UX Designer & Product Manager
If you’d like to come and work, play and hang out with us, here’s what we’re looking for. Though you could just send us something phenomenal, leaving us with no choice but to follow up, to:
We’re looking for an experienced Financial Controller to oversee the global reporting and compliance functions, leading a team of two finance analysts to deliver continuous improvement in the financial operating model.
Reporting into the head of finance, the successful candidate will demonstrate a high degree of commercial acumen and be comfortable working in a fast-paced and dynamic start-up setting where every week will present new opportunities and challenges to navigate.
With ample room to grow, this role is a great chance for the right candidate to work alongside the leadership team and deliver tangible improvements for the business allowing us to deliver on our 3 year strategic plan.
Compliance & Control
We’re looking for an inspiring, detail-oriented Story Producer to join our team to help us ship many more incredible new story products over the coming years. It’s an exciting time for us at Lost My Name, and it’s about to get better.
We need someone we can trust, with a proven track record of delivering high-quality complex entertainment propositions, but who is convinced their best work is ahead of them.
We can tell you more about our detailed plans as a company at an interview, but it’s no secret that they involve continuing to develop our high-concept, sky-high production value, unique personal stories for children and young people.
We expect our producers to look after up to three of these major story projects simultaneously. Each project usually consists of 2-3 creative people, taking 6-12 months to ship. These small teams and long schedules mean that we’re looking for a creative contributor as much as project manager - you’ll own the heart of the story as much as your creative team.
We’re trying to reach as many kids and families as we possibly can across the world - and sell millions of copies of our books.. This means we need someone who is excited about universal story themes and ideas, and who is comfortable running a process that incorporates feedback from many sources, including our wonderful customers.
So if you’re excited about storytelling for little people and are looking for a big canvas to work across we’d love to hear from you.
We’re looking for an experienced product or commercial analyst to help us accelerate growth of our established products all over the world using data driven strategies.
This is an important role for us that requires a unique mix of quantitative analysis skills, commercial mindset, creative thinking and love for our customers and category - you need to be excited about making things for kids and families.
Along with being a super strong contributor you’ll also be a strong voice within the business advocating for your projects and backing them up with rock solid analysis.
You’ll work in close collaboration with our VP of Product and our Head of Insights and other stakeholders to develop customer centric strategies for product, price and promotional change in our core product range - you’ll then help to drive these initiatives across the business and measure their performance.
In addition, you’ll support our new product development initiatives with smart quantitative analysis of the wider market.
Beyond your analytical skills, you’ll also have a love for the kind of products we make and you’ll get a kick out of the idea that your plans and ideas are directly leading to millions more happy kids and families all over the world!
In addition to this we offer generous compensation, options in the business, lots other benefits, a fast paced, high growth work environment with 80+ passionate colleagues working in a beautiful light filled studio in East London.
If this sounds like a challenge you could take on we’d love to hear from you.
Words are brilliant. But there are millions of them, and without good writers, words just sit there in the wrong order saying the wrong things. Rotters.
We’re looking for a remarkably creative comms writer who can make words do exactly (exactly!) what they need them to: entertain, surprise, jump through hoops, play the cello — anything they command. Someone with the ability to be playful and hilarious, who isn’t afraid of a good pun, but who is also marvellously disciplined and hard-working. And they should be brilliant at ideas too.
Feeling confident? Good, let’s switch to first-person then...
You should have a lot of experience writing comms. You have the knack to be funny and clever without being self-indulgent. You have a light touch but can also land a message with real weight. You know how to edit yourself, how to think about messaging hierarchy, how to make people open emails, click buttons and buy products. And you should be able to create funny, sharable content that your mum might see and chuckle at before boasting to friends that you came up with it. You should also be self-motivated, pro-active, collaborative and self-sufficient. You should know how to write for email, social media or on the side of a banana.
Most importantly, you can make people smile every time they read your words or ideas.
Lost My Name is one of Britain’s fastest-growing brands and this is an opportunity to help turn a successful start-up into a global name. We are a playful, kind brand. This opportunity will be ridiculously exciting to a smart, funny, eloquent, engaging, intelligent, autonomous, experienced, creative and all-round superb candidate.
The team you’ll be working in delivers creative output at a higher-frequency than any other team in the business. We literally ship handfuls of content every week and watch and learn from the public reaction. We get to directly shape and influence the brand by continuously exploring and publishing new concepts and ideas.
This role is the sole copywriter in the team, which gives you a central role in expressing the tone of the brand. You will report to a very experienced writer, who can help you sharpen your talent even more.
Lost My Name is one of the UK's fastest growing startups. Combining the power of storytelling, design and technology, we create products that give all grown ups creative superpowers to make magical, meaningful connections with the children in their lives.

We’re taking the best from the worlds of IP, technology, entertainment, publishing, product design, education and e-commerce to execute on our vision - that means we are one of the most eclectic, interdisciplinary companies around.
