Visual Designer (fulltime, remote)

Lead Marketing Design, Contribute to Web/Mobile Product

Come make things beautiful and effective at Gaia GPS. You'll be the second member of the design team, working with a world-class design/UX lead and a talented group of software engineers. We're a data-driven company, but we don't measure every shade of blue. We use taste and research to design products, along with testing and analytics to experiment and answer questions.

In this role, you're intended to own the marketing-related design for the company, help with design/UX for the product, and contribute your design vision to disparate projects across the company. Your work will likely include redesigning the gaiagps.com home page, improving critical emails, advising on photography/videography, optimizing onboarding for different verticals like hiking versus offroading, and more. The company has gotten to the point where the marketing and development is getting ahead of design, and you'll fix that. You'll be the 16th or so member of a boot-strapped and quickly growing team, by the time you come on board.
