Want to be part of an exciting startup that is having a positive impact on the world?

Lumos is the world's first smart bicycle helmet with integrated lights, brake, and turn signals. Launched to the world on Kickstarter in 2015, Lumos raised over $800,000 in its campaign. It has been featured on Forbes, Fast Company, The BBC, and CNN.
Lumos has been named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things, TIME Magazine’s “Best Inventions of 2018”, and “The Helmet That Every Bike Commuter Needs” by Slate Magazine.
In 2018 Lumos became the first helmet to be sold at the Apple Store, and is currently on sale in over 300 Apple Stores in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
Lumos is a mission-driven company. Started out of our dorm rooms at Harvard, we seek to make a positive impact on the world by helping make cycling safer, preventing avoidable traffic deaths, and helping more people everywhere make cycling a bigger part of their everyday lives.
Join us in our mission to improve cycling safety and have safer streets for all.
You are perfect for us if you are:

A creative type with a wide range of skills and interests. You understand that design is more than just making things look pretty and you're driven to constantly improve your work and always do better today than what you managed to do yesterday. You are also highly organised, able to work independently with a lot of responsibility, and work well with a team. You are looking for an opportunity to be an influential part of a small team and build an exciting new consumer brand from the ground up.

Position Overview:

Lumos is seeking a Digital Designer. This person will work closely with the Head of Design at Lumos and work on all aspects of our digital design.
Key responsibilities will include:
Website development
Photography & video editing
Product packaging
App UI & UX
Trade show booth design
Other graphic design work that will come up
Lumos is still very much a young early stage company. As such, a high degree of adaptability, independence, and initiative is expected and required to do well here.

We are constantly learning new things and adapting our strategy and activities accordingly. As such, JDs are looked at more as a guideline at Lumos. We eschew roles and seek people willing and able to go beyond the JD when necessary to fix the problem and get the job done regardless of our “jobs”.

Where you will be in a year:
A highly skilled designer that isn't afraid to take on new types of projects - Working closely with the Head of Design who will provide constant mentoring to ensure you can achieve your highest potential.
Be responsible for overseeing our visual assets and ensuring a strong consistency throughout - You will be helping to define the look and feel of the company, whilst also providing creative input on things from social media adverts, to app UI & UX, to graphics on the products themselves.
Have developed a skill you don't already know - As this is a multi-disciplinary role, you will be tackling a diverse range of projects and will in turn develop new skills along the way. This is a high-growth opportunity.

1 – 3 years of professional experience as a digital designer at a consumer brand, agency, or startup, or business analyst/associate at a consulting firm.
Evidence that shows that you have a good eye for clean, minimalist design.
Highly detail oriented, organized, and able to work independently. You’ll be given a series of projects and regular mentoring, but will be expected to push beyond what you’ve been taught and challenge the status-quo.

Balanced between being a “thinker-planner” and “doer”. You are a creative strategic thinker able to develop ideas for marketing strategies and campaigns, and can also get your hands dirty to get things done yourself.
Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
Interest in photography is also a plus.
Experienced being a bike commuter at some point in their life. Passion for bikes a huge plus
Detail oriented and organized. You’re a pro at managing and prioritizing the workload for yourself and your team.
