Graphic Designer


We're hiring our first dedicated Designer in Marketing, to bring Qwilr to more of the world. You'll design for campaigns, product launches, and our brand at large, making Qwilr feel clear and compelling to our customers, and exciting to the world.

About the role

We're hiring our first dedicated Designer for Brand & Marketing work. You'll create compelling visual assets for feature launches, design holistic and high quality assets for content campaigns, and help visualise tricky concepts for customers in simple and elegant graphics. 

While you'll be our first dedicated Designer in Marketing, you won't be alone. You'll also be joining Qwilr's Design team, and a company that has valued and invested in design since it was founded in 2015. Being a startup has meant that our time spent designing for marketing has been sporadic, and as a result our brand today isn't the best reflection of the $10m we raised last year. This role will change that, and help create a brand we're really proud of, and supports our ambitious year ahead.

Finally, you'll have smart people to work with, challenging problems to solve, and the space to solve them well. You'll have opportunities to try new things, with the support to improve your core skills and really hone your craft. It's these reasons I've been at Qwilr for over 4 years, and can honestly say it's a very, very exciting time to come onboard — with your help, our best work is ahead of us.

Projects you'll work on

Marketing Campaigns

You'll design for a wide variety of marketing campaigns, that engage customers to discover Qwilr. Campaigns usually involve multiple touchpoints (an ad, to a landing page, to our site etc), and they need to feel like a consistent experience. This role will directly help improve the speed, quality, and impact we can make with these campaigns.

What this requires

  • Custom graphics & visual assets to support key messages
  • Editorial design for long form content (like this)
  • Designing landing pages to tell a feature narrative (like this)
  • Ads to launch campaign online to the world

  • Product Launches

    You'll create rich marketing assets that help communicate features, ideas and benefits to our customers. Some of these are one-offs, like announcing a new feature, and some are a collection of assets and ads to promote large scale campaigns. Your work will directly help improve the quality, speed and impact our product launches can have.

    What this requires

  • Distilling a feature into something visually simple but engaging
  • Animated gifs to highlight key features (big bonus!)
  • Ads for promoting the launch on social media

  • ✨ New Brand

    We're working on updating our brand, and you'll be a key part of us doing this well. We want this to be a meaningful leap forward, and not just be a new lick of paint. After the new design direction is set, we'll then need to roll it out holistically across all our touch points, so everything feels clear and compelling to our customers.

    What this requires

  • Being able to iterate quickly through creative concepts
  • Collaborating with content to create the best outcome
  • A great eye and passion for the details

  • Perks you'll get

    We believe you do your best work when you feel your best. We provide a setup bonus when you join, and an annual budget for further education, conferences and books. You'll have retreats away from the office to chat about our future and our principles twice a year (resuming soon). Along with a competitive salary, everyone joining the Qwilr journey also gets stock options from day one.

    Hiring stages


    Portfolio review

    You'll submit your portfolio (in any form that comes in) so we can see what your strengths are, and if you are a good fit on paper


    Initial call with our People Team

    You'll have an initial call with someone from our People team to chat through some of your experience to date, salary expectations, and for you to hear what it's like working at Qwilr.


    Design take-home task

    You'll do a take-home task so we can see how you approach a real world design problem. We’re evaluating visual execution first and foremost, but we also want to see how you leverage the content to make a clear and compelling experience for viewers.


    Interview & Whiteboard

    This stage is an interview with Dom, our Head of Design, followed by a whiteboard session with Tania, our Product Marketing Manager. This is to see how you collaborate around a design problem, and get a general feel for what it would be like working together in a real world context.


    Meet the Founders

    After this, you’ll have a quick chat with one of our founders, Dylan (our CEO) or Mark (our COO). This will be an informal chat, and an opportunity for you to get to know the Founders personally, and for them to get to know you.


    Offer 🎉

    If all lights are green, you'll have a final conversation with Dom and he'll be (very) excitedly making you an offer to join Qwilr!
