We are seeking out a versatile and experienced designer excited about playing an oversized role in defining an early stage company’s visual brand and design principles.

You’re looking for the opportunity to be the first designer at a company, among the first few employees, with a ton of responsibility and a ton of freedom to do your job the way you’ve always wanted. You enjoy ideation and brainstorming and you’re interested in creating products in the marketing, PR, and e-commerce space.

You will
  • Create a brand style guide, logo, and wordmark
  • Develop a comprehensive design strategy for the organization
  • Work closely with the founders and Head of Eng on product look and feel
  • Produce marketing assets such as banners, illustrations, and site designs
  • Storyboard, wireframe, and mock up application interfaces
  • Conduct research and usability testing to optimize the end user experience
You have
  • 3-7 years design experience, ideally with a direct-to-consumer product
  • Bachelor’s degree (preferred)
  • A strong portfolio of work covering mobile, web, and marketing design
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, and/or Sketch
  • A working knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • Familiarity with version control, design reviews, and continuous iteration
  • Comfort in a variety of roles, from visual and graphic design to UI/UX
We are building a next-generation launch platform for small to mid-range companies looking to promote and sell new products to early adopters, by integrating aspects of traditional e-commerce with influencer networking and social gamification.

We expect passion and dedication to the project; a willingness to go above and beyond when it’s called for and to be adaptive to change. Barring pandemic restrictions, we expect new employees to commute to our office in Flatiron due to the very small size of our team.

We offer competitive equity packages and salaries as appropriate for a young company. We guarantee a flexible and fast-moving work environment.
