Developers around the world use Nylas to quickly and securely build email, scheduling, and work automation features into their applications.

People First

Nylas is a BIG advocate for the well-being of its employees, which is why we have embraced a People First philosophy. It’s about giving more autonomy and flexibility to our employees. It’s not about when, where or how the work is accomplished; it’s about adopting a mindset of velocity and trust when tackling the work. It’s about respecting individual working styles, disabilities, and personal schedules, but also ensuring everyone has a better work-life balance. The outcomes will always be more important than the physical location.

Nylanauts have the ability to decide the best workspace or environment that will result in more ideas, engagement, creativity, focus, collaboration, and productivity. Why? Because we want our employees to be great; because we are focussed on being a high-performing team. To achieve this mission, we remove barriers and offer more autonomy. So, Nylanauts are encouraged to find those environments that inspire them to be great. This means Nylanauts can work from the slopes of Montana or from the beaches of Italy.

And if Nylanauts want to work from an office in one of our hubs (San Francisco, Denver, New York City, Toronto, and London), they can! The workspace is there to be utilized.

So, if you’re looking to join a fast-growing company with a beloved, daily-use product, and an authentic mission that puts people first, we want to meet you. Want to know more? Check us out on Comparably and Great Place to Work!

The Role 
Nylas is looking to add a thoughtful and versatile Snr. Graphic Designer to the Marketing Team. The designer will support the Creative Director by creating compelling marketing materials that align with Nylas brand guidelines. The designer should have great attention to detail, be organized and able to juggle multiple projects, and thrive in a fast-paced startup environment. 
The designer must have enthusiasm for learning. Nylas is a highly technical company with a developer audience. You will constantly be learning about our product suite and the nuance/lexicon of backend software development in order to design Nylas marketing materials.
While this is not a product design role, you’ll need to create user interfaces and faux products that demonstrate Nylas capabilities, so experience in UI design and/or product design is a major asset to this role.

What You'll Do

  • Manage your projects from start to finish: interpret highly technical briefs into literal designs, ensure design best practices are upheld, proof your own work, & do all of your own production work.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to gather project requirements, manage timelines, interpret feedback, & meet team goals.
  • Design thoughtful campaigns with the user in mind: infographics, display ads, white papers, webpages, blog & social media assets, videos, presentations, etc.
  • Draw custom illustrations & icons that align with brand guidelines.
  • Partner with our Wordpress developer to ensure proper file handoff for web assets: clean up Sketch files, export assets, & QA new pages.
  • Continuously review the performance of your work to make improvements and strive for optimal user experiences.

What You'll Bring

  • 3-5 years of design experience.
  • Highly proficient with Adobe Creative Cloud: Illustrator, Photoshop, & InDesign. After Effects experience is a bonus.
  • Must have solid working knowledge of Sketch and/or Figma. Ideally, you should be familiar with using style libraries & dynamic symbols to execute a design system and streamline your workflow (or be willing & able to learn quickly).
  • Able to work in a very fast-paced environment, on a small team: managing your own workload & meeting tight deadlines.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. You’ll need to be able to evangelize design at Nylas and explain your design decisions to non-designer stakeholders.


  • Unlimited Paid Time Off (PTO): we take this very seriously as we care about the well-being of our employees
  • Healthcare: 90% premium coverage for medical, dental and vision for you and your family
  • One Medical onsite and tele-health membership for you and dependents
