Visual Communications Designer

  • San Mateo
  • Full-time

Help define, evolve, and maintain our company’s brand and marketing creatives. You’ll work closely with marketing, sales, product and other areas of the business to help ensure our brand is appealing and trustworthy. We're looking for someone with attention to detail who strives for pixel perfection.

You’ll join our small Design Team. We’re a nimble group that spans user research, user experience, prototyping, visual design, brand design, design systems, web design and UI development. We sketch a lot. We prototype a lot. We talk to users to validate our work. We run cross functional workshops to influence design thinking across the company. 

OneSignal’s vision is to power the world’s messages. Our customer engagement platform enables our users to compose and send messages via mobile push, web push, in-app and email.

The company is growing quickly both in terms of revenue and employees. It’s a great time to join because we’re still early - we’ve raised a total of $35M from investors including SignalFire and Rakuten Ventures and despite our early stage, we have massive market penetration.

900K+ mobile app developers and marketing teams use OneSignal to send push notifications. We started as a Y Combinator-backed game developer. Our founders were frustrated with existing push notification tools, so we built our own system. It took off like wildfire. Now we help businesses send 5.5 Billion push notifications every single day.
