The ideal candidate has strong communication skills, the ability to work in a fast-paced environment, and a meticulous attention to detail. A curious mind ready to push boundaries coupled with a proactive drive will go a long way at Strava!

This is a pivotal role on the Design Team – you should be comfortable engaging with the strategic dimension of work, strong on developing narrative and content as well as visuals. Your contributions will be just as much to the critical thinking and rationale behind creating ideas as in executing them.

What you’ll do

  • Develop compelling ideas and crafting those ideas into clear design solutions that inspire athletes to find their personal best
  • Present concepts and creative ideas to internal teams
  • Conceptualize and craft beautiful brand experiences that push Strava’s brand identity forward.
  • Work collaboratively with other designers (brand, product, production), copywriters, producers, marketers, project managers and engineers.
  • Manage and prioritize a workload of multiple projects from concept to completion
  • Evolve Strava’s visual identity across product, marketing and business channels.
  • Develop resources, guidelines and templates that empower teams to create beautiful and thoughtful brand expressions.
  • Inspire teams with your passion and drive to create the best work.
  • You will collaborate with designers, copywriters, producers, project managers, engineers, marketers, and others to push the brand forward—maintaining visual brand excellence for a wide range of design needs.
  • Present and articulate to key stakeholders, leadership and team members.

What we’re looking for

  • 6+ years of experience with an end-to-end visual design background. You are a systems-thinker who can translate athlete's needs into compelling design solutions—in and out of the product experience.
  • Excellent storyteller. You are a specialist in bringing stories to life that are visually rich and are comfortable in pushing the medium.
  • Passion for developing standards and design systems that create huge impact through simple solutions.
  • Exceptional attention to detail. You are a master of craft, typography, composition, imagery, iconography and color.
  • Strong editorial and art direction skills and experience to match. You have an eye for photography and film.
  • Enthusiasm for taking on new opportunities. You push the boundaries and are excited by a non-traditional approach to branding.
  • Talent for articulating ideas. You command the room when presenting your work to cross-functional teams and executives. You have excellent written, verbal and visual communication skills.
  • Able to make confident design decisions, and be smart and persuasive in bringing others with you
  • Experience working quickly and efficiently. You are keeping up with the pace in a lightning-fast startup environment.
  • Master of design tools. You are fluent with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Figma, After Effects – plus you can handle a camera.
