Float, the world’s leading resource planner, is looking for a Front End Designer to manage the development of our marketing design initiatives. We’re a team of people living our best remote work lives. From New York to Melbourne, Canada to South Africa – our team of Engineers, Product Managers, Marketing and Customer Success folks work asynchronously to help teams plan and manage their time better. Float is self-funded, profitable, and growing. If you’re a self-starter, aligned with our values, and are looking to join a team that’s passionate about helping others work and live more productively, we want to hear from you. Here are a few tips from our CEO to make sure your resume stands out from the crowd.
Who We’re Looking For
We’re looking for a Front End Engineer with proven production experience in developing marketing campaigns at scale. Ideally, you’ll have experience with B2B or SaaS services. Perhaps you’ve cut your teeth in the agency world, and are looking for an opportunity to carve your own path and have a greater impact on a growing team and an industry-leading product.
You live in the details, where every millisecond and pixel matters. You’re an Engineer at heart, but have a strong design sense and feel comfortable working with an established Brand Guide to develop assets when required. You’re capable of developing short SVG animations, GIFs and video content, where the context makes sense.
You know your way around Sketch, and are comfortable working with headless CMSs (We use both Ghost and Prismic + Gatsby).
As a fully remote team, we’re looking for hands-on, experienced candidates who are able to focus on the work and projects without direct oversight. Asynchronous is the default form of communication at Float, and we have very few meetings, so you’ll have long stretches of time to focus on deep work. Everyone at Float leads by example and sets the bar for quality.
What You’ll Do
This role is responsible for delivering the type of detailed and deliberate interaction design that others reference for inspiration, matching our industry-leading app credentials and elevating our overall brand. You’ll be working with our Marketing Director and Designers to deliver this work. You’ll be starting with a solid foundation including an established Brand Guide, colors, fonts and styles.
Here’s an example of the type of projects you’ll be working on:
- Our marketing site: With the basic structure in place, you’ll elevate how we communicate what we do, experimenting with animation and video, to improve engagement and the rate of visitors to trials
- New site sections: You’ll pair with our copywriters to develop entirely new sections, including the Float Guide, a destination that helps new teams get setup for success
- Landing pages: You’ll work with our Growth Marketer to devise new landing pages that communicate our value for various industries and use cases
- In-app interactions: Over time you’ll start to influence how our application feels, from desktop to mobile apps, working with our Product team and Engineers to identify opportunities to improve the user experience.
Performance and SEO are top of mind in your decision-making process. You’ll weigh up the tradeoffs in design vs performance, and have an eye on PageSpeed Insights when developing solutions. Throughout you’ll be developing interaction systems and processes that help us scale, and increase consistency and continuity across our brand.
