Hi, we’re Canary… a New York City startup transforming the way people connect to the physical places they care about. Our first product—a video-based all-in-one home security solution—launched in 2015 after setting records as one of the most successful crowdfunded products on Indiegogo. We've continued to build and launch award-winning hardware products and user-friendly software in the connected home and IoT space. Our products are available throughout the U.S., UK, and Europe and we have a global (and growing) base of active and engaged users. We're currently building a platform that will scale to process more real time video, audio, and sensor data than any consumer product on the market.

We are seeking a talented and versatile graphic designer with strong typographical sensibility and exceptional design aesthetic to support a broad range of marketing, advertising, and brand initiatives for our team. In this role, you’ll be responsible for conceptualizing and executing online advertising campaigns, managing asset production - brand style guides to photography shoots, designing merchandising solutions (in-store and online) for Canary partners, and much more.

We’re looking for someone who thrives in a fast-paced startup environment, has a history of successful execution, and has a bias toward action.

This role will be an integral to Canary’s marketing, sales, and brand-building efforts, and we’re looking for someone who has the maturity to do work that builds brand but the passion and creativity to develop work that stands apart from others.

● Contribute strategically to the development of brand identity and visual look and feel
● Promote continual creative improvements through self-education and refinement of processes
● Collaborate with production, marketing, and engineering teams as necessary to ensure design deliverables are in line with the overall Canary experience

Who you are:

● 3 - 5 years of design experience (design portfolio required)
● Extensive digital experience (advertising, email and web assets) complemented by print and packaging skills
● Ability to demonstrate your creative versatility– showing a wide range of skills across mediums
