Your Challenge

  • Be a partner in the next stage of development of the Ataccama brand identity and strategic positioning. Live and breathe this brand positioning and ensure it is expressed effectively and consistently in our visual identity.
  • Lead a team of talented in-house designers (visual design, motion and animation, UI, and video), and coordinate and manage support from a network of talented freelancers and agencies as needed. Plan, coordinate, and oversee the work of your team.
  • Take the Ataccama brand to the next level. Our brand is fresh and bold, and it works well for us in the market. Take ownership of visual brand consistency, and at the same time infuse design assets with ongoing freshness and energy.
  • Get close to our product – both the Product team and the software itself. Understand the value we deliver to our customers, and ensure your team members know how their work contributes to building value for our customers
  • Be a hands-on leader who also regularly produces assets and improves existing ones. Be a specialist in at least one of the following: Visual design, motion and animation, video and photography, or UI but also be able to lead direction across specialists in these areas
  • Take each visual asset, whether print or digital, as an opportunity to differentiate ourselves from the competition and deliver a highly-targeted, compelling message
  • Ensure maximum support for the field teams – sales assets, sales plays, enablement, awareness, event booths and swag, internal and external comms, etc.
  • As a global company with offices in North America, Europe, and Australia, be prepared to manage occasional tasks outside of standard working hours. Plan and allocate design work effectively to meet the needs of geographically remote offices
  • Work with executive stakeholders who may not speak the language of designers. Capture their vision and anticipate their needs in visual design
  • Insist on data-driven decision making for yourself and your team
