Mid-weight Graphic Designer

A full-time hybrid role in Cambridge, United Kingdom

It’s an exciting time to join Gearset! In the last few years we’ve rocketed from a 7 person start-up to nearly 240 people, and we’re only just getting started. We’re working on building the best Salesforce release management solution on the market, and we’re looking for a graphic designer to join our team and help Gearset to stand out in the market.

We believe great design can profoundly change the experience a company creates for its users, through considered aesthetics, and carefully-crafted information architectures and workflows. At Gearset, we strive to solve complex problems in ingeniously simple ways, and design and usability are core considerations in this. It shows, too - the simplicity of our design is regularly cited by our users as an important factor in their decision to use Gearset. But, we know we’ve still got a long way to go.

Our designers work within the marketing team to make sure the perception of the Gearset brand aligns with the strength of our product. We enable Gearsetters to easily make use of impactful creative assets, with the aim of setting all teams up for the best chance of success.

Our culture of trust, transparency, and collaboration, means everyone at Gearset is given the autonomy to succeed and are trusted to do good work. We only add process when it helps us get things done, and we’re allergic to pointless meetings! We live by our core company values which aren’t just nice words—they guide us through day-to-day challenges and are the foundation of how we work together.
