Senior Brand Designer
Redwood City, California / Area 1 Security
Posted: Aug 22, 2017
Our team builds new technologies that protect millions of people from cyber-attacks. We aspire and succeed to reach far beyond today's security market.
Cybersecurity is a complex and serious topic; yet the industry is crowded with companies that strike a message of fear instead of optimism and further exacerbate the situation for organizations by instilling confusion instead of clarity. You'll find that Area 1 approaches the security space in a unique way to show that we have solutions and tools to protect companies from targeted phishing campaigns.
We're looking for an experienced designer to join the Area 1 Design Team and report to the Senior Creative Director. Someone who can play a key role in continuing to push our brand into new territory. The ideal candidate will come in with fresh ideas and have a track record of thinking big picture with the intent to execute.
We are walking down a road never traveled. No textbook will prepare you for this.
We only hire the best. Please inquire.
