Who Is AppSumo
AppSumo was started in 2011 by serial online entrepreneur Noah Kagan. The idea was simple: the tools you need to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. Today, the AppSumo team has grown and includes some of the best talent from Facebook, Microsoft, and Bloomberg (to name a few).
Our mission, however, remains the same. To date, we’ve partnered with over 1,000 startups to bring our community the absolute best deals on software. We’ve partnered with companies like MailChimp, Evernote, and Dropbox — startups that have gone on to become household names in software.
With hundreds of successful product launches and over a million entrepreneurs served, we’re looking to elevate our creatives to the next level. That’s where you, the Digital Designer, come in.
Unlike other design roles, you’ll get to create assets that fuel both our growth, as well as the growth of the companies we partner with. You’ll tag team with our marketing team, our incredible partners, and key stakeholders to create designs that are clear, engaging, and forward-thinking.
About This Role
This job is primarily about conceptualizing, designing, and implementing creative digital design projects for AppSumo.
If you’re highly creative, detail-oriented, and hyper-organized, then this role is for you. It’s designed for someone that is excited by a fast-paced, startup environment with continuous opportunities for innovation.
You’ll be working alongside our content, marketing, and product teams. On the day to day, you’ll be using Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator) as well as Figma.
In the first three months of this role, success means creating new design assets and visual elements for our content team, delivering project deliverables on time, and establishing best practices and upgrading branding guidelines.
A day in the life of an AppSumo Digital Designer includes producing new marketing materials for our partner products, designing layouts and advertisements for multiple mediums, and enhancing existing creative files for all different web channels.
This is a unique role that requires creativity, tech savvy, time management, and strong communication. Our ideal candidate has 3-5 years in digital design, specifically geared towards ecommerce or SaaS products and has a firm grasp on marketing platforms (including social, digital, and email marketing), channels, and best practices. In-house experience with a tech company is preferred.
Why You’ll Love it
If you’re a team player that can work with a variety of different stakeholders, and a self-starter who loves to translate ideas into creative graphics, you’re going to crush this.
Why You May Not Like It
You’ll be creating digital design assets. So if you’re not comfortable with digital design, this role may not be for you. Because you’ll be responsible for maintaining visual and branding consistency across all design elements produced, organization, self-discipline, and multi-tasking is a must.
Pay & Benefits
We provide a competitive compensation package.
In addition, we offer paid lunches every day, a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and two all-expenses paid company trips with the team. (You can check them out here.) You’ll be equipped with a brand-new computer, monitor, standing desk and any other gear you need to feel productive. Not to mention, we also have in-office massages weekly. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We love your dog :)
At AppSumo, we don’t believe in benchwarmers or clockwatchers: we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that when you have something to do, you’ll get it done. If you need to run an errand, hit the gym, or meet a friend for lunch you’re encouraged to do so. You can work from home as often as you need to, and you’ll have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures. (Everyone says it, but we mean it: Take as much time as you want.)
We’re committed to creating a diverse, supportive, and collaborative working environment - every person we bring onto the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
