CREATIVE OPERATIONS

We're a creative family, building copy, data and visual assets for each corner of the FARFETCH Ecommerce Platform. We are dedicated to providing gold standard imagery, content and production services for our partners and creating an engaging on-site experience for our customers.

GUIMARÃES

Our Guimarães office is located in this beautiful and historic city, often described as the 'birthplace of Portugal'. This is where our European Production team is based, in a custom-built office and studio facility which has a games room, music area and unbeatable chill out zone with a hammock that fits up to 20 people!

THE ROLE

Did you know that the quality of the images we send to the website will be decisive for the client to buy our products? If you do know and want to be a part of the amazing team that decides between the wrong or right, be aware, because we are looking for an amazing junior quality technician. Reporting to the Quality Lead you will analyse the quality of the images produced on Farfetch.

Quality Technicians are divided basically in: QC IN and QC OUT. They guarantee the quality of each production but also assure that all the processes and art directions are being followed. We ask that you have collaboration with the Styling, Photography, Photo Editing and Logistics departments in the local and global teams.

QC IN is the team responsible for the process after the photography, the studio's image validation. And QC OUT oversees the post production image validation. Both teams work with specific guidelines, to guarantee that the imagery will be available to the customers with a maximum expected quality.
