About Us

YuLife is creating a new kind of insurance company. Our mission is to inspire people to live longer, happier and healthier lives. We provide life insurance to companies and drive employee wellbeing through meaningful, engaging and rewarding experiences inspired by our favourite games, apps and products.

We live by a simple principle and we strive to translate this to our designs: always seek the win-win in everything we do. This means we should always be giving more than we take with every interaction. Sounds good, right?

The Role 

🦒We're seeking a pixel-perfect self starter with top tier design, animation and video skills to create conversion-oriented, beautiful and inspiring digital assets that challenge the status quo 🦒 

Our ideal candidate is self-reliant and flexible - somebody who wants to do their best work and make an impact in an exciting high-growth company and help to foster a culture of brand and design thinking. Somebody practical and proactive, who actively seeks feedback and wants to grow and give back. 

What makes us smile: 

Creative ideas. 💡 We take insights about our prospects and customers and come up with fresh ideas that will feel relevant and engaging to them.  

The art of visual communication. ❤️ We make things that are beautiful, inspiring and desirable with a high-level of craft. 

Storytelling. 📚 We know how to tell compelling, on-brand stories that help open up conversations about wellbeing and life insurance.  

Results and sales mindset. 🚀 We understand how to bring new ideas to market, and that sometimes our customers might need to be inspired to try something different.  

A collaborative approach. 🤝 We work with teams across the business to solve problems and embed brand and design thinking in everything we do, helping to create a consistently inspiring experience for our prospects and customers.
