Communication Designer

San Francisco
Full time

As the first communication design hire, you will have freedom to shape the way we reach our users. This includes everything from responsive web pages to animated ads to branding. Our goal is to elevate the way we connect with people visually. If you nerd out over new design programs, animation tools, illustration techniques, or holistic strategies for communication, we want you. 

Your Role
You will report to the Head of Design, who will be your advisor—but not your product manager. You will learn how to fuse visual art with science to achieve a goal and measure it. You will learn a wealth of product design skills, user research techniques, and methods to validate your design decisions using data. You will be responsible for:

* Concepting and executing ad campaigns
* Rethinking brand expression
* Identifying areas to improve communication and education
* Creating internal communications templates
* Getting to know our user base and creating custom content for them
* Delighting our users with innovative designs, experiences, and animations

Design at Crew
Designers are the glue that connects form to function, that take a spark of passion to an effective work of beauty. It’s so much more than aesthetics—at Crew, we expect our designers to have a vision that transcends pixel pushing. This vision should inform our direction, from decisions on what we should build next to what sort of company we will become.

We are dreamers and big picture thinkers. We do things because they are the right thing to do. We are proud of our work. We are easily excitable, and feed off each others’ excitement to come up with great solutions. We push for projects we are passionate about. We collaborate across product design, marketing, engineering, and sales to create work that we can all be proud of.

How To Apply
Please attach your resume and link to your portfolio. Be sure to include your weapon of choice—is it AfterEffects, Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop, or something else? 

Crew is a messaging app that already helps thousands of businesses, schools, fire departments, and even sports leagues communicate with their teams all in one place. Managers and co-workers can easily perform fundamental day-to-day parts of their work on the app by sending messages, making announcements, swapping shifts, and assigning tasks. Today, these organizations are often using a combination of chaotic text message chains and paper to perform these actions. Crew instead presents a unified, powerful, and simple app-based solution. You can read more about what customers say they love about Crew in Apple App Store with 4+ stars and Google Play.
