About NorthOne

NorthOne is a mobile-first API-based bank account and mobile app that helps startups and small businesses bank, manage their finances, and integrate all of their financial tools in a simple and intuitive way.

Job Description



We make small businesses more successful through better banking.

Our company is looking for a Brand Designer to join our growing team as we enter a new phase of expansion 🚀 We are a Toronto-based, venture-backed startup at the heart of the FinTech movement that is shaping the way financial services are delivered.

Our story

Our company’s purpose is to eliminate the pain that small business owners face through their financial management and banking. To achieve this, we’re rebuilding business banking from the ground up. Imagine you could start with a clean slate and think of a different way to deliver banking to small businesses. What would you change? What would you keep? These are the decisions that we make every day.

Our product

NorthOne is a mobile, tech-powered bank account built for startups, freelancers, and small/medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Poor financial literacy has an outsized impact on the costs and failure rates amongst SMBs, and we are on a mission to eliminate these problems. We are more than a banking platform, we are the world-class Finance Department that SMBs could never afford.

Our team

We ❤️ Brand Marketing. As our Brand Designer, you’ll work with our world-class Marketing, Growth, and Design teams to share the NorthOne story. You’ll also benefit from our experienced leadership and incredible advisors. Our COO has helped build brands like Frank and Oak and has lectured about marketing at SXSW. Oh, and our CEO? 6 years at McKinsey working on digital customer experience in financial services. We’re building a product that solves real pain, vs the imagined kind. Feeling it?

REQUIREMENTS

Today you might be a Graphic Designer, Designer, Production Designer, Art Director, or the equivalent in your company...or something that we haven’t heard of yet - we keep an open mind.

The most important characteristic for our Brand Designer is your attitude. We want you to join because you don't see roadblocks, you see opportunities to be at your best. You know that somehow, you can figure anything out.

The skills required for this role:

    You’ve mastered at least one modern design software (Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Sketch, Figma)
    You love creating art and illustrations that help tell brand stories across social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and editorial content
    You get giddy when you design beautiful and intuitive brand websites

Bonus points:

    You've helped create brand direction for a fast scaling company, or taken an awesome brand to the next level (consumer brands strongly preferred)
    You’ve worked at a fast-growing startup or top tier creative agency
    You’ve written blogs for a major publication, created viral digital content, or created/hosted/were featured on a podcast that we'd know
    You’ve worked on a major ad or PR campaigns for an objectively cool consumer product brand

Few people have been trained for this sort of role. If you are this close to what we’ve described but aren’t sure, apply. Let’s figure out together if this is where you could shine.

BENEFITS

Our mission is big and audacious, but we're assembling a team to take the challenge head on.

As our Brand Designer, you'll be joining a team that prioritizes:

    People: Our company is more than just a business. We’re a band of brothers and sisters supporting each other on our mission to rebuild business banking. We’re really serious about mission, fit, and the people we work with. You’ll be part of a rapidly scaling team that reflects these values and keeps this place special.
    Diversity: You'll find yourself in an environment that values diversity and inclusivity. Excellence doesn't come in one flavor and neither should we.
    Leadership: You’re right in the thick of it, making critical decisions that will clear our path forward.

We offer full health/dental benefits, competitive compensation, and one hell of an adventure.

If you recognize yourself in this job description, let's talk.

NorthOne is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and celebrates diversity. We welcome all applicants regardless of race, colour, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability status or national origin.
