Brand Designer

Affirm is redefining an industry by placing your financial success first. We’re committed to helping you make smarter decisions about your finances with clear and transparent financial products and services.   

As a Senior Brand Designer, you will be the steward of Affirm’s visual identity in all public communication. You will be working closely with the CMO, marketing, and copy teams to craft and best support the consumer-facing and merchant-facing narratives of Affirm’s mission.

What You'll Do

  • Define, maintain, and evolve Affirm’s visual identity in all public communication
  • Shape the visual identity of Affirm across multiple mediums with illustration, photography, icon design, presentations, application design, web design, cinematography, and print design
  • Work closely with marketing to design product landing pages, assets for online and offline marketing (including emails, display banners, social media, print, conferences and tradeshows, out of home), business collateral, video assets, illustrations, and photography assets for content marketing
  • Work with designers, copywriters, engineers, marketers, and others at Affirm to execute first-class work
  • Work closely with outside creative agencies to evolve our brand
  • Solve end-to-end visual problems with a creative eye

What We Look For

  • 2+ year of digital and print design experience
  • Experience building big, bold, and iconic brands with a strong emphasis on design
  • Ability to recruit and manage a growing brand and communications design team
  • Strong portfolio showing a range of projects you’ve designed including branding and identity design systems, responsive websites, and marketing collateral
  • Solid understanding of website design as well as composition, color, imagery, and photography
  • Expert knowledge of relevant design software (Photoshop, Sketch, Illustrator, InDesign, Keynote)
  • Attention to detail – meticulous when it comes to typography, grids, balance, and white space
  • Can communicate design decisions clearly and effectively
  • Ability to design quickly and share progress openly and frequently
  • Strong opinions, loosely held. Willing to fight for an idea, but willing to compromise too.
  • Comfortable art directing photographers, videographers, illustrators, and other designers

About Affirm

At Affirm we are using technology to re-imagine and re-build core parts of financial infrastructure to enable friendlier and more transparent financial products and services that improve lives.

We believe the financial industry is fundamentally broken. Not only is the core infrastructure built with technology from the 1970s, but there are a dwindling number of people who say "I trust my bank to look out for me". It doesn’t have to be this way, and it’s our mission to fix this problem.

We are based in San Francisco; founded by Max Levchin (founding CTO of PayPal), Jeff Kaditz (CDO DeNA/ngmoco), and Nathan Gettings (founding CTO of Palantir); and building a team of exceptionally talented people to join us on our mission.
