Job Description

Minimalism, Bauhaus, Clean lines, Mid-century furniture, Pixel perfect, Helvetica – If these terms get you excited, then you may be the designer we’re looking for. We are passionately obsessed about great design and are looking for a stellar design all-rounder to help us in a range of projects including printed materials, branding, websites, signage, industrial design, interior design, and more. Big ups if you can code as well!

**Who are we?**

Factory is the new model for office space, designed for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. We provide fast-growing startups and technology companies with flexible, well-designed office spaces with communal areas for networking, sharing and collaboration. We aren’t a coworking concept, business club, accelerator or office broker - but rather a team of passionate entrepreneurs shaping how technology companies interact with space and one another. Our Playbook is our bible and it helps define how we operate. We have collaborated and hosted events with some of the biggest brands in the startup and technology sectors, and are now - with a new set of tech and real estate investors - expanding to more cities within Europe.

**The Role & Responsibilities:**

As we expand our startup campuses across Europe we need a designer who can keep our branding and aesthetic vision consistent, both online and within our physical spaces. You’ll be leading a diverse variety of design projects, and working closely with the founders and senior management. Eventually you will grow to hire and lead an internal design and development team.

Core duties:

• For our campuses and other properties (coliving, food & beverage, etc.):
• Design logos and branding packages
• Design websites and mobile applications
• Design signage
• Interior design concepts
• Design compelling and clear pitch presentations
• Work closely with developers to make sure designs are translated into pixel perfect code
• Create online and offline graphics for events
• Edit photographs

**Our Ideal Candidate:**

We’re seeking a motivated and passionate individual who understands the startup hustle and is ready to dive in head first. You should be eager and excited to take an active role creating a lasting aesthetic identity, working in a fast-paced environment and not afraid to assert yourself and defend your design decisions.

Must have:

• Prior experience in graphic design, web design, identity design or industrial design
• A badass portfolio
• Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite
• Fluent in English
• Independently-minded
• Detailed-oriented
• Ability to multitask
• Willingness to travel
• Visa or allowance to work in Germany or Portugal (ideally EU)

• Experience with interior design
• Experience in 3d Printing
• Experience in Architecture
• Experience in Video Editing / Production
