Vaadin is a growing, commercial open source company. We are on a mission to help developers build web applications that end users love. We started in 2000 with an idea for making web development easier. Today, 150 000 developers around the world are using our Java-based open source UI framework and commercial tools for creating web applications. We are passionate about user experience and technology. We believe every user is entitled to enjoy the simplicity, beauty and performance of great UX, and it should be easy for any developer to deliver these with our tools.
Vaadin’s Design Team is looking for a new senior-level (3–5 years of exp.) team member. Our team has a holistic responsibility to ensure the quality and consistency of the Vaadin experience – including our brand, communication, product and customer journeys.
We operate with a centralized partnership model: Designers are dedicated to specific teams across the organization but report directly to the Head of Design. This greatly improves clarity and collaboration between Designers, and increases our team's awareness and flexibility.
As a Marketing Designer, you will be dedicating most of your time to work with Vaadin’s Marketing teams. Marketing’s mission is to win over the minds and souls of software developers, teach and inspire our users and customers about the value we provide, and drive the expansion of our community.
