Okta is hiring a

Visual Designer (Marketing & Product)

San Francisco, United States

Position Description:

Okta is looking for a talented and versatile Visual Designer / Web Designer to elevate the visual design for every aspect of the company: Marketing, Product, user conferences, you name it – if people can experience it, then we want you involved to make it well designed. Okta’s Creative team helps with the concept and development of stories, content, campaigns and experiences that connect Okta with the world. We’re looking for a strong web designer capable of producing work that would stand out on Dribbble and Behance (or wherever you like to strut your stuff).

You’ll report to the Head of Creative as a member of the Creative team. You will work closely with the Sr. Visual Designer, who will act as a mentor. With Web Marketing as your primary focus, you’ll work closely with that team. On occasion, you’ll be asked to support the UX team – you’ll be expected to contribute beautiful assets and visual design concepts for Okta’s market-leading product.  

Everyone values design at Okta. The Product, Engineering, and Marketing teams are a highly collaborative bunch that are passionate about user experience. Through collaboration with these skilled teams, the Design team guides the visual direction and user experience across the product and website.

The Creative and UX teams support and push each other to keep raising the bar.  You’ll join a team that enjoys working together: they take their work seriously, but diva behavior is nowhere to be found. Frequent design critiques are held to gather valuable feedback and keep each other up to date on what’s happening.

 

Responsibilities:

Major areas of responsibility include:

  • Produce high-quality creative assets, including icons, illustrations, and infographics for web, mobile and print – your time will be split between web marketing and product design.
  • Design pixel-perfect web design comps for marketing and customer facing web sites.
  • Communicate effectively with designers, product managers, engineers and marketing pros to present your ideas.
  • Create visuals that are inspired by our brand guidelines, but also push to extend and evolve Okta’s visual language over time.
  • Understand our users and target audience to inform your visual design direction.
  • Manage multiple projects – we value focus but we are an agile team in a constantly changing environment.

 

Minimum Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • A stunning portfolio that demonstrates your visual design skills in a variety of mediums (web, mobile, print) – work that has been seen by real users, not just experiments or school projects.
  • 3-7 years of work experience as a Visual Designer.
  • Possess an expert understanding of graphic design, typography, color theory and composition.
  • Prior experience developing design systems.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the latest Adobe CC, with emphasis on Photoshop and Illustrator.
  • Familiarity with Figma, Sketch and Asana.
  • Experience or interest in animation or motion design; basic After Effects skills a plus.
  • Ability to take complex technical solutions and present them to people in simple and engaging ways.
  • Be a team player, no job is too big or too small.

 

Education and Training:

BA/BS degree in Design (e.g. interaction, graphic, visual communications, product, industrial), HCI, or related field or equivalent practical experience. 

Okta is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
