Remote Job Description

We’re hiring a Brand Designer to help us tell the world about SimpleTexting through thoughtfully crafted content and engaging experiences. You’ll help us build awareness of the SimpleTexting brand and product benefits.

We’re looking for a designer that is comfortable leading projects, navigating uncharted creative territory, and designing the look and feel of multiple customer-facing touchpoints.

Not a Typical Stuffy In-House Design Job

Many software companies are afraid to take risks in how they communicate. This leads to a lot of copycat design, where brands incorporate the same cliched stock photography or–if we’re being honest–weird blobby illustrated figures.

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones: we’ve been guilty of this over the years. The good news? We want to change and we’re hoping that our new Brand Designer can help us. We want you to level-up our visual identity and chart a new course that helps us stand out in the sea of software sameness.

As a solo designer, you’ll have a high degree of autonomy and creative freedom, but you’ll also be able to bounce design decisions off a supportive team of creatives (copywriters, former designers, and demand specialists).

If you think you could thrive in an environment like this, then let’s get to the details 👇

What you’ll do

  • Design for a wide range of projects including web, email, social, and performance marketing to create a consistent narrative across all marketing touchpoints.
  • Use data and user research to generate new creative solutions for landing pages, paid digital, and brand campaigns.
  • Bring new creative and innovative concepts to the way SimpleTexting communicates visually.
  • Partner with our demand and lifecycle marketers to deliver designs that are creative, useful, and align with our broader marketing goals.
  • Build on existing brand guidelines and design systems.
  • Bonus: Bring motion to our web design system to delight, orient, and elevate the user's experience across Simpletexting.com.
What we’re looking for

  • 4+ years relevant work experience, either on an in-house design team or as part of an agency.
  • A demonstrable foundation of design principles and an eye for details through alignment, hierarchy, typography, grid, and user experience.
  • Ability to be a great teammate from large projects down to the last detail.
  • Experience with prototyping and creating user flows as a means to explore and communicate design solutions.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Experience using Figma and Adobe CC.
  • Video editing skills are a bonus.
