Blaze creates technology for urban cyclists. Our flagship product is the Laserlight; a front light with a laser that projects the symbol of a bike onto the road ahead of the rider, designed to help them to be seen in more situations and thus have a positive effect on rider safety. It began as a consumer product and ships to over 60 countries, but more recently was integrated into the Citi Bike in New York and all of the Santander Cycles in London, with more to be announced.
Blaze is a team of 12 based in Shoreditch, London. We care about each other, have our own office with our own workshop, and thrive on collaboration. We are all passionate about cities and urban cycling. Over the next year, we are looking to expand the team, so it is an exciting time to be joining the company.
So where would you fit into all this?
We are looking for a Graphic Designer. As a team, we appreciate the value of design as an essential contributor to our brand, and to the world.
