Technology advances at a blindingly fast pace, and what seemed like the best from a few months ago may well be obsolete today. Piktochart is always looking for ways to empower our users to be more creative and efficient in telling their stories visually. In order to do so, we need someone who is user-centric and always thinking from the user’s perspective, and execute projects together with a cross-functional team from diverse culture and background.
Piktochart is currently serving over 11 million users worldwide, and have inspired people across diverse industries to communicate their ideas more effectively through creative use of visuals. As such, your responsibility will be to inspire and lead the team to work towards bringing business impact in the relevant areas you're in charge of. You'll also need to make smart tradeoff between perfectionism and timely delivery in order to seize opportunities to iterate as we go. When all is said and done, we always celebrate our wins or even losses and arm ourselves with the learning to be leaner and smarter for the next project!
