We believe business should be used as a force for good and companies who do this are building better relationships with customers, suppliers and employees and therefore a more ethical, long term and profitable brand. Imagine what can be achieved by putting all of these types of business under one roof.

We are a B Corporation pending business and have already signed up some amazing members in our first space in Whitechapel Road which is 23,000 sq ft. The plan is to build x+why into a global kitemark for responsible business and build the number of these coworking spaces across the world.

This is a words and pictures based role and requires someone who is meticulous in detail and design and, most importantly, has an ambition to see change in the way the world works.


We are totally flexible as to where you work, although feel the occasional trip to London (Whitechapel) to meet the members and see the space would be beneficial. You would be welcome to work in our offices whenever you wish and enjoy the amazing benefits we offer each employee.


We feel this is a 3-4 day a month role initially, but we are happy to review based on scope, skill and requirement of the right candidate.
