San Francisco, CA, US

Contentful provides content infrastructure for digital teams to power websites, apps, and devices. Unlike a CMS, Contentful was built to integrate with the modern software stack. It offers a central hub for structured content, powerful management and delivery APIs, and a customizable web app that enables developers and content creators to ship their products faster. Companies including Spotify, Red Bull, WeWork, Lyft, and Urban Outfitters rely on Contentful to manage content as part of their modern web stack.

Contentful is growing rapidly, backed by $80 million in funding from VC firms including Benchmark and General Catalyst, and strategic investors including Sapphire Ventures (SAP) and Salesforce Ventures.

We’re a fun team of more than 200 people from 44 nations, with offices in Berlin and San Francisco. Join us!

    

ABOUT THE ROLE

We’re on the hunt for a Visual Designer to join our marketing communications team, focused on global marketing campaigns. You’ll be able to work on a variety of projects and make a big impact in our fast-growing company as part of our efforts to refresh our brand reach prospective customers. 

We’re looking for great work with a great attitude, a sharp eye for communication design and a collaborative approach to improving and delivering. We take pride in creating quality work that’s authentic, fresh and different.

You’ll play an important role in supporting our marketing efforts, primarily with marketing communications and demand generation. We’re a small but mighty team — you won’t be just another cog in the wheel. You’ll work on projects that are highly visible both across the company and a little place called the internet.

 You’ll report to the Global Brand Designer based in San Francisco, and work with our marketing team, a diverse in both Berlin and San Francisco. And yes, that means you’ll also have the chance to travel to our office in Berlin and participate in our annual company offsite (complete with a giant rainbow unicorn float). Join us today — we can’t wait to meet you!

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Design demand gen assets to drive our online marketing efforts, such as banner ads and email campaign visuals
  • Design print-oriented text-heavy assets such as white papers, case studies and briefs

ABOUT YOU

  • You’re a high performing self-starter who brings a fresh approach to projects
  • Layouts are your jam and typography is your groove — you understand the way that copy and design play together and emphasize clean, focused readability
  • You’re a team player who is willing to lend a hand where needed — the phrase “that’s not my job” is not in your vocabulary
  • Clear, thoughtful communication is important to you. You’d never reply to an email with just “OK.”
  • You would enjoy working in a fast-paced startup — we move quickly but we have fun doing it!

REQUIREMENTS

  • Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and Sketch
  • Digital design, especially layout (illustration is a plus)
  • Print design, especially layout and packaging for print
