Creative Director

About Us

Carv is creating a new paradigm of sports technology with the world's first digital ski coach. Learn with real-time audio instruction, AI-driven data analytics and content developed with the best instructors in the world.

We've been growing fast, selling out 3 years in a row and doubling the business every year. We're looking for ambitious and passionate people to join us in our mission to build the world's best sports coach.

Video and creative have always been at the core of our brand. Over 3 seasons, we have created one of the fastest growing content companies in skiing - amassing over 14 million Youtube views and 90k subs (beating all the major brands). We have achieved this with a passion for our customers and respect for the sport we work in.

We have a rapidly growing membership of skiers who love learning about skiing, following our fitness and technique content, and they’re waiting to see what you will make next...

The Role

Are you a person who can think strategically whilst producing high-quality creative concepts? Would you like to lead a talented in-house Creative Studio?

Our content is already reaching millions, and our instructors now tell us they get noticed on slopes all around the world. But we want you to take it to the next level. We want you to experiment with new themes, explore with live member content, improve how we communicate technique, develop the aesthetic and maybe even launch our first movie.

You can expect to work on snow with Carv ambassadors, source athlete talent and execute production with your own team (and contractors where required).

You will also become the internal brand champion. You'll safeguard our look and feel so wherever you see Carv, on social, Youtube, or in-app - you know it's Carv.
