As we navigate through the transformation of financial services from traditional, outdated systems to innovative, user-centered solutions, Shakepay is looking for a Visual Designer who can encapsulate the essence of our brand in every visual output.

As a Visual Designer, you will elevate our visual storytelling, ensuring it aligns perfectly with Shakepay’s ethos and communicates our vision effectively to our audience.

You will:

  • Craft and evolve Shakepay’s visual identity, ensuring it resonates across all customer touchpoints and stands out in the financial landscape.
  • Collaborate with marketing, product, and executive teams to produce compelling designs for digital and physical mediums that tell the Shakepay story.

  • Lead the creation of brand guidelines and ensure consistency across all external communications and platforms.
  • Drive brand awareness and customer loyalty through innovative design strategies and execution.

Must have:

  • 5+ years of experience in brand design, with a portfolio showcasing a wide range of work across digital and print media.
  • Strong illustration skills, able to create unique and engaging artwork that enhances brand storytelling and visual appeal.
  • Strong understanding of branding principles and storytelling through design.
  • Proficiency in design software (Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, etc.) and an understanding of the latest design trends.
  • Exceptional communication skills to articulate design decisions and collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams.
  • A keen eye for detail and a passion for creating memorable brand experiences.

Nice to have:

  • Experience in fintech or startup environments.
  • A portfolio demonstrating successful brand transformations or launches.
  • Bilingualism in English and French.
  • Interest or background in Bitcoin and blockchain technologies.
  • Education in Graphic Design, Visual Communications, or a related field.
  • Experience with motion graphics or video editing tools.

 Why join? 

  • Be part of a groundbreaking journey: you'll live on the frontier of financial innovation. Bitcoin is rewriting the rules, and Shakepay is at the forefront.
  • Impact and scale: with only 2% of Canadians on Shakepay, the potential for growth is massive. You can help us bring Shakepay and bitcoin to all Canadians.
  • Rewarding benefits: we offer competitive compensation (every shaker owns stock options), benefits (health, dental, paramedical, disability, etc), and generous vacation time.
  • Embrace continuous learning: ambitious individuals with an insatiable thirst for knowledge will feel at home. Working at Shakepay means you'll be working in an environment that encourages constant growth and development.
  • Get paid in bitcoin: choose to take a percentage of your salary in the hardest, soundest money the world has ever known.
  • Work remote: work from anywhere in Canada. If you're in Montreal or Toronto, you can also work from our offices.

We understand that potential can be just as valuable as experience. If you're eager to learn, grow, and contribute to the mission but worry that you may not have the “right” experience, we still want you to apply. We encourage applications from everyone, regardless of background and life experience. We’re firm believers that a little bit of slope makes up for a lot of y-intercept.

Fluency in English is required due to the percentage of English-speaking customers and the nature of our platform, which is available to all Canadians.
