Communications Designer

at Later (Latergramme) in Vancouver

At Later we believe in the power of Images. Images to communicate quickly, Images to connect disparate people, and Images as the best way to convey personal meaning. We also believe software should be so easy to use – you shouldn’t need a manual or a sales demo. We build that software. At Later we are becoming the leading platform for managing visual social-media content.

What are we like to be around? Glad you asked! We are a hard-working, competitive, fun-loving band of miscreants. We have rubber duckies on our desks, KPI’s on our walls and board games and beers tend to be broken out on Fridays.

What we value:
Our core cultural values are manifested in our practices and processes every day. We highly value transparency and fairness in everything we do. We look for people who like to move quickly, are ambitious yet humble and have a great sense of humour. If you have a mischievous spark of fun, that’s even better.

You have:

  • A natural tendency to take initiative, achieve results and generally #GSD.
  • A desire to constantly stay organized and create efficiency using technology, bringing order to chaos and uncertainty.
  • A willingness to go above & beyond (and sometimes even save the day!)
  • A humbleness to recognize that sometimes you’ll need to apologize and admit mistakes (we’re all human after all!)
  • Understand and work well in Startup culture – be able and willing to take on all sorts of tasks and responsibilities.

We list our values and beliefs first because they are non-negotiable; if you’re still reading then check out some of the responsibilities you will own.
