About Us: 

Our Housemates are innovators who see the world differently and strive to make a difference within it. Each one is chosen and cherished for the skills, talents and characteristics that make them unique. As House of Hackney evolves, we empower our team to learn and grow alongside us. And, as a compassionate brand, we care about the wellbeing of our Housemates – whether that’s through offering a flexible approach to work with a four-day week over the summer or getting flexible (quite literally) in group yoga sessions. Step into our House and you’ll be in a land of print and colour, away from the sea of grey suits. Based in Shoreditch, the creative heart of the capital, our House is a place where imagination and collaboration can flourish – where everyone is accepted, all ideas are encouraged, and magic really does happen. 

There may be no place like home… but in our House, there’s no place like work.
