About this opportunity
We’re building tools for Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) and DevOps teams that run software at scale. Companies like Disney+ Hotstar use Last9 to make sure their subscribers are able to use their products without issues. Last9 provides the managed observability infrastructure to help such companies learn what is about to break before it breaks.
Starting in 2020, we’re backed by Sequoia Capital and Better Capital, along with a few angels.
You will own everything designed outside the product and work in the Go-To-Market (GTM) team. You’ll work closely with the Head of Brand, Senior Product Designer, Frontend Engineer (GTM), and Developer Evangelist to work on primary touch points like the overall branding, website, micro-pages, social media, and other marketing materials. You will also support the Sales and Customer Success teams by designing relevant communication materials and building a repository that’s consistent with the company branding.
The work that you do will trickle into the product and documentation as well.
If you’re not based in Bengaluru, we’ll provide assistance to relocate at a timeline that’s convenient for both of us.

Extend it to a design system applicable across formats and can be used by external contractors that we may work with from time to time

Own design for all communication touchpoints: website, e-books, documentation, marketing collateral, sales decks, merchandise, etc.
Comfort with understanding the tech side of things is helpful but not necessary; we’ve got a team of marketing and sales folks who haven’t worked in this domain earlier but have picked up things along the way, with relevant support provided by the team.
2+ years of relevant experience working as a Brand/Visual Designer
And, or a body of work showcasing illustrations, infographics, iconography, graphic and web designs
Experience working with tools such as Figma, Photoshop, Illustrator
A body of work showcasing comfort with motion design, animations, and video design is a bonus
Experience with tools such as AfterEffects, Spline, and Rive is a bonus
A frontend engineer who has experience working with data visualizations and animations has recently joined the GTM team, so any relevant experience in the same domain will have extra weight.

We’re a team of 35 high-agency folks working across functions. We believe in keeping things simple. For example, a team of 6 engineers built the Events compatibility for Levitate, which supported up to 400m events per minute at peak during the 2023 IPL.
