Visual Designer

FreshBooks has a big vision. We launched in 2003 but we’re just getting started and there’s a lot left to do. We're a high performing team working towards a common goal: building a kick-ass online accounting application to help small businesses better manage their finances. Known for extraordinary customer service and based in Toronto, Canada, FreshBooks serves paying customers in over 120 countries. 

The Opportunity – Visual Designer

FreshBooks has a very distinct brand. We’re looking for someone with a bold sense of design and a passion for creating exceptional visual experiences that can effectively persuade customers to try new products.

Specifically this position includes:

  • Being a highly collaborative team member focused on delivering design projects including landing pages, e-mail campaigns, banner ads, direct mail or hand-out materials and PowerPoint presentations
  • Deeply understanding our customers and what motivates their behaviours and reflecting that back in your deliverables
  • Communicating the status of all of your deliverables
  • Conducting design reviews with peers; providing them with suggestions to improve as well as developing your work based on their feedback 

We think you'll be an amazing fit for this position if your application can demonstrate:

  • You love Art & Graphic Design so much you studied them in College or University
  • You’ve done this before – you have at least two years experience in a similar role
  • Experience with, or knowledge of, direct marketing design principles
  • You have a track record of delivering projects on time and on budget
  • Advanced skills in industry standard design applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign etc.
  • Bonus points if you can write HTML and CSS or have experience laying out eBooks
