Digital Designer

Ratio is a multi screen agency that designs and develops native applications for all the major platforms. These days we predominantly create OTT apps for major content providers, but we also work with startups and other partners to craft unique experiences. What we love to do is partner with good people and work together to create compelling and valuable applications. If that seems like something you’d enjoy, Ratio would be a good fit for you.

Our design team shares a love for design that goes beyond the day to day work that we do. Design is the language we speak, it’s the lens through which we see the world, it’s what unites us. We have a shared methodology that we collectively defined and work to perpetuate and improve constantly. It keeps our heads in the same space and not distracted by the trends of the industry, rather rooted in a foundational system that we’ve proven to work. We learn together, we grow together, we build our team together.

What we are always looking for are good people that share a love for design and a passion to grow their skills in a collaborative environment.
