A little flex time
Our mission to make our digital world simpler, smarter and more human.
Established in 2003, Sennep is an award-winning, independent agency specialising in user experience and interface design. In addition to creating intuitive and smart products, we go one step further and inject joy, creativity and brand personality into the user experience. We call it the human touch.
Our nimble and diverse team works closely together with our clients to identify customer needs, understand business objectives, design, prototype, test and iterate – driven by the desire to create products that people need and love.
Flexible working approach
Sennep has always been committed to building and sustaining a flexible workplace.
Whilst fully embracing remote working, we also enjoy meeting up in our office in the Design District, Greenwich Peninsula, for an IRL cuppa and face to face problem-solving. We don't have any set days of the week where we work in the office. It's on an ad hoc basis for when we think being together in the same room is beneficial, or when it improves our general well-being.
Our extended network of freelancers work from anywhere in the world where the time difference allows us to collaborate.
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"The flexibility of working and the management's understanding is great!"

Hi! 👋 I’m Hege. Since co-founding Sennep with my partner Matt in 2003, we’ve fostered a culture of friendship – a place where we celebrate each other’s quirks and personal achievements.
We are experimental and inquisitive by nature and see every project as an opportunity to sharpen our skills and stretch our abilities further. We want Sennep to be the place you do your best work, where you feel supported, inspired and – most of all – feel that you belong.
