Junior Graphic Designer


About the Role

We’re looking for a Junior Graphic Designer to join our Marketing Team in London and help develop our brand across a wide variety of channels including social, website, digital and product.

Why work at Stakester? You’ll be encouraged to be as creative as possible, working with a young and experienced team that are passionate about doing things differently. Oh, and we also have an in-house creative studio with a permanent actor to create content with every - single - day.

A Bit About Us

We're a brand new disrupter in the mobile app space allowing online gamers worldwide to back themselves and challenge anyone to play one-on-one games for real life cash and prizes (including FIFA, Call Of Duty, League of Legends, Tekken and more).
