The Company:

Go to YouTube and search “We are Ooni”. That wee video pretty much says it all

The quick version is:

We make epic pizza ovens that cook awesome pizza in 60 seconds and start from only £249.

We’re growing really really fast and have no plans to slow down. In fact we’re the fastest growing company in Scotland according to The Sunday Times Fast Track!

We’ve built a pretty cool office inside a warehouse in Broxburn. There’s a train station nearby or a car park if you prefer. We have 2 staff kitchens and a Nintendo. And a beer kit. And a table tennis table. And cornhole. And Marv the deer. And there are loads of puppies. And possibly a new pet cat since lockdown started….

We’re now up to 200+ in the whole team. That was 100 this time last year and only 50 the year before that. And they are all AWESOME - our culture is core to our whole reason for being. 

These are our values: Passion, Rigour, Innovation, Ambition and Kindness. We really do live by them and demand them in everything we do. It ain’t just corporate mumbo jumbo to us. See how they’re capitalised to show how important they are?

Benefits:

  • Salary - based on experience
  • £500 every year to spend on your passion – whatever that may be
  • Great pizza every single day if you want it. Yep. Every single day. And we’ll teach you to become a pizza pro
  • Pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, weekly yoga classes. (NamastYAY!)
  • 35 days paid holiday per year
  • £1000 to spend on Ooni products each year, plus 50% discount on any other Ooni stuff
  • Employee Assistance Programme – our people are at the heart of everything we do, so if you’re happy, we’re happy.
  • Raising money for charity – we’re all about giving back… and having lots of fun in the process!

If you have read the above and though \'wow, that is me\' then have a look at our website, look at our \'We Are Ooni\' video on YouTube. Read a bit about our values and products and just have a wee Google. 

If you like what you see and you fit the bill, send in:

  • A short cover letter on why you’d like to join Ooni
  • PDF portfolio of your most impressive and appropriate work
  • CV

We really like nice letters – especially ones that are personalised just for us - so please don’t forget that bit.

By the way, since you’ve been reading this - we’ve just made 2 pizzas. You know you want a slice...

Having a fantastic culture is really important to all of us at Ooni. We work hard to make it diverse and inclusive, and want everyone to have access to the same opportunities.
