Designer FactualLos Angeles, California, US
Factual is a data company comprised of many different teams that help utilize and deliver our extensive data set to the world. We are seeking a full-time designer to join our team. In this role, you will design materials to support our products; whether it is internal training collateral or external client-facing materials. You will create designs that tell the Factual story, advocate our brand, and build brand awareness in our competitive field. You will be an internal brand ambassador for our organization and help design for our internal events coordinator and recruiting teams.
In this position, you will pull from your wealth of knowledge of traditional graphic design to craft print collateral, environmental graphics, swag items and more interactive projects: UI elements, web campaign ads, product design mock-ups for testing (MVPs).
We are looking for a super collaborative individual with the ability to work with teams across Factual, from the revenue teams to product and engineering. You are a strong multi-tasker that can switch between projects quickly and iterate efficiently. You feel confident presenting your work and receiving feedback from external and internal clients. You thrive in a rapidly changing environment and are happy to wear many ‘hats’ at once.
You are enthusiastic about the technology industry. Previous experience in this field and software product experience is a big advantage. You can adhere to strict brand guidelines and receive mentorship while at the same time confidently present new ideas and have concept design experience. Experience in wire frame and A/B testing is an asset. We value organized, self-starters that are excited to pitch in help wherever you can.
