When was the last time you were pleasantly surprised by an insurance company? Feather bets the answer is never — and they’ve built Feather to change that. They’re changing the industry and need a Brand / Marketing Designer to help us build a product that their users love, and which best serves their needs.
This is a remote position within the European Union or in Berlin – where most of the team is. They can help you relocate if needed.

Why apply to Feather?
  • They’re at a sweet spot of growth. They’re growing fast and we have the talent and resources needed to support this growth, yet they’re also still a small team (~20 people), meaning that your work will have a direct impact on their users, product, and company.
  • You'll have the freedom to experiment. They’re solving a real problem in the industry, but there are thousands of delightful ways to do it, which is why we do hack days / hack weeks where you can experiment with new ideas and ways of working.
  • They’re lean. They only create processes when they're helpful and use the tools that allow them enjoy the work. It's highly collaborative (Figma, Notion, Linear, Slack) and there's no JIRA 😉
What will you be doing?
  • Refine and grow Feather's brand identity.
  • Design engaging landing pages and collaborate with their copywriter and marketing team to achieve concise and clear messaging.
  • Produce marketing material to support users across their entire journey – social media posts, emails, advertising banners, etc.
  • Understand their users, brand, and competitive landscape and use that knowledge to hone their message and inform design decisions.
  • Grow their brand guidelines to achieve a high-quality, compelling, and strategic output across the whole team.
  • Conduct user research (brand perception studies and usability tests).
What you bring
  • 3+ years experience designing landing pages and other brand material, ideally for a digital product.
  • A portfolio that reflects a deep understanding of composition, color, typography and visual hierarchy.
  • Intuitive understanding of the design landscape of modern SAAS products like Spotify, Slack, Figma, Airtable, etc.
  • Clear communication. You have the ability to explain your reasoning and show the considerations behind your decisions.
  • Experience with graphic design is a bonus.
What will the interview process look like?
  • Initial phone call - They’ll have a chat over Google Meet and ask you a few questions about your design experience.
  • Take-home task - They’ll give you a task to work on, which will give you an idea of the type of projects you'd take on at Feather.
  • Reviewing the task - They ask you questions about your design decisions.
  • Chat with the founders - You'll be speaking to one of their founders (either Rob or Vincent).
  • Offer 🎉
Does this sound like a good fit for you?

At Feather, they are huge advocates for diversity and inclusion. From LGBTQ+ events to open discussions about eliminating bias, they highly encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.
They also encourage people without degrees to apply: they believe that what you’ve worked on and achieved is way more important than on-paper qualifications.
