Head of Design / Senior Designer

Your role

In today's world of limited attention spans, the only way to get someone's attention is by making your message relevant, timely, and, most importantly, visually appealing. Every business is trying to get our attention and this problem gets harder each day as we split our time between more apps.
For over 30 years, businesses have used desktop software like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects to make visually appealing creative content. Such software is extremely powerful but so complex that only professional designers with years of training can use it. And even they take hours to make a single creative.
Businesses are now using banners and videos at every customer touch point, beyond the obvious use in ads. Open your 5 favourite apps and see how many creatives they use in them to get a sense of the scale of creative content that teams have to make. Multiple products, multiple offers, multiple languages, multiple platforms, all make content creation a massive challenge for businesses that Photoshop and other pre-Internet era software were just not designed to solve.
Rocketium is building what today's fast-moving, high-growth businesses need - rapid creation, massive scale, collaboration, integrations, APIs, and more. Rather than focusing on Adobe or competitors, we focus on our customers - some of your favourite apps. We help them grow by using visual content to run more relevant campaigns faster with a 50x lower design effort. Our product combines Photoshop integration, powerful web-based creation, collaboration, integration with ad and push platforms, analytics, and multiple AI-powered features.
You will lead the design team solving hard problems of creative design, collaboration, file management, analytics, campaign management, and much more that can run on any browser by anyone with or without design experience. Your product will be used by global business and creative teams to make visual content that will be seen by hundreds of millions of users worldwide.
