Careers at Maker&Son

So, why come and work for Maker&Son? We're a friendly, hard-working team who are busy building one of the world's fastest growing luxury furniture brands; we're creating 100% natural furniture that our customers love; we work from a beautiful house surrounded by Sussex countryside; our business model is genuinely innovative and disruptive; and we make lunch for the team every day...

Our team in BALCOMBE

Maker&Son was founded by a father and son team (Alex and Felix) in February 2018. We are now a small team (growing fast!) working out of a beautiful house in Balcombe. While we're surrounded by stunning countryside, we're also very close to the station and therefore only 40 mins from London Victoria or 25 mins to Brighton. From our base here we run our global marketing and operations and UK sales teams. We also have teams in Australia and the US. We are always interested to meet enthusiastic individuals with a passion for furniture, design and doing things differently.
