Who are we?

Plato is a new type of design agency. We empower people to do what they love from anywhere in the world. Our vision is to blend the best of human creativity with the power of Machine Learning to reimagine collaboration with each other, and partnership with our clients.

We believe that if you hire talented folks, lead with trust, and give people the tools they need to succeed, then creativity will come. Our team is completely distributed, but we’re building new modes of operation together.

Our team leverages technology to collaborate because we want to, dives into deep work when we need to, and (every so often) connects in real life because we like to. With us, you get the opportunity to be curious and collaborate with passionate peers, without sacrificing autonomy or career ownership.

Plato is proud to be backed by Y Combinator and some of Silicon Valley’s best investors. Join us on our untraditional, inspiring journey.

The Role

Plato is looking for a wide range of experienced design thinkers to help us deliver interesting, useful design projects to our customers. As a freelance designer, you can be located anywhere and take on as many or as few projects as you’d like.

As a Graphic Designer in the Plato Creative Network, you’ll be responsible for communicating complex ideas through multimedia. Most projects will require designing information architecture, layouts, illustration, and make all other aesthetic decisions related to a project. Projects types include Slide Decks, One Pagers, Email Templates and Facebook Ads. You’ll be compensated based on the complexity of the project.

Ideal Graphic Designer candidates have a high quality bar, with a portfolio that displays a range of project types, aesthetics and use cases. You should have a track record of success delivering high quality work on schedule, and should enjoy collaborating as a part of a fast moving team. You must also have a “business fluent” level proficiency in written English.

If this sounds like you, fill out the application below to get started.

    About Us

    At Close, we're building the sales communication platform of the future. With our roots as the very first sales CRM to include built-in calling, we're leading the industry toward eliminating manual processes and helping companies to close more deals (faster). Since our founding in 2013, we've grown to become a fully profitable, 100% globally distributed team of 33 high-performing, happy people that are dedicated to building a product our customers love.

    We are growing the Product team (of 3) to help define the features that will have the biggest impact for our customers and their sales teams.

    About You

    You are a generalist with a wide set of design skills including user interface design, user experience design, an understanding of usability concerns, and the ability to write easily digestible copy. You enjoy the challenge of designing for sometimes deeply technical problems.

    You have worked with, or helped create, design systems and understand version control for design files (we use Abstract).

    You are comfortable working remotely as part of a small team, with a high level of autonomy. You have designed beautiful and elegant solutions for desktop SaaS products and are familiar with the space.

    You understand technical constraints, their impact, and can adjust your design approach accordingly. You enjoy the problem solving aspects of design, and you’ve had experience working on complex web or desktop apps.

    You have been wrong and can admit it. You can articulate why it happened and how you’ve learned from that experience. You’re not precious about your designs and can accept constructive feedback freely. Equally, you can argue effectively for your viewpoint when needed.

    You are able to easily demonstrate your process for taking rough concepts and briefs from lo-fi sketches through to high fidelity mockups ready to be implemented. You’re confident in communicating the rationale of your decisions.

    You are in a European or American timezone.

    About The Role

    You will be responsible for understanding and designing new features and improvements as part of a small feature team. You will ensure the solution satisfies the initial problem statement, is technically viable, and integrates well with existing design patterns (or adds new ones where necessary).

    You’ll be working with Craig (best axe thrower in the company), Ben (not the best axe thrower in the company), and Anthony on a daily basis and often with the engineering team throughout the design process.

    We use Freehand, Sketch, and Abstract as our design toolset and Slack, GitHub, and Asana extensively for communication within and between teams.

    Why work with us...?

    • 100% Remote (we believe in trust and autonomy)
    • 2 x Annual Team Retreats ✈️ (Lisbon Retreat Video)
    • Competitive salary
    • Medical, Dental with HSA option - 99% premiums paid (US residents)
    • 5 Weeks PTO + 6 Government Holidays + Dec 24 - Jan 1 Company Holiday
    • Parental Leave (10 wks primary caregiver / 4 wks secondary caregiver)
    • 401k matching at 4% (US residents)
    • Our story and team 🚀
    • Glassdoor Reviews

    At Close, everyone has a voice. We encourage transparency and practicing a mature approach to the work-place. In general, we don’t have strict policies, we have guidelines. Work/Life harmony is an important part of our organization - we believe you bring your best to work when you practice self care (whatever that looks like for you).

    We come from 12 countries and 14 states; a collection of talented humans rich in diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and cultures. Twice a year we meet up somewhere around the world to spend time with one another. We see these retreats as an opportunity to strengthen the social fiber of our community.

    This team is growing in more ways than one - we’ve recently launched 8 babies (and counting!). Unanimously, our favorite and most impactful value is “Build a house you want to live in.” We strive to make decisions that are authentic for our organization. At Close, we have a high care factor for one another, in making an awesome product and championing the success of our customers.

    45k :

    You know your way around design tools like Sketch, Photoshop, Flinto, After Effects, Zeplin and Illustrator. You can take previously finished concepts and spin off iterations for marketing campaigns. You are excited to be surrounded by UI/UX experts from whom you can learn and soak up knowledge.

    85k+ :

    You understand deep emotional aspects of UI and UX design and can lead peers to create an entire campaign from just words and end-goals given to you in a meeting.

You know After Effects and have a deep understanding of animation and the emotional impact created by subtle animations. If you are more technical you have a deep understanding of HTML/CSS and Javascript and can work directly on GitHub to bring concepts in Sketch to life in responsive web design.
