At Paxos, we are creating the infrastructure for a new, open financial system - one that anyone can access and participate in. We envision a new system that allows assets to move instantaneously, anywhere in the world - to unlock the potential of assets and people everywhere. Our customers include some of the biggest enterprises in the world like PayPal, Credit-Suisse and Binance, and together we are upgrading the global financial system using modern blockchain technology and digital assets.

You will help define the future of design at Paxos and be instrumental in ensuring brand consistency and iteration across our portfolio. As the first creative hire on our marketing team, your work will be instrumental to helping us build our visual identity and market and sell our products and services. You will be charged with laying the groundwork for new workflows and processes for our burgeoning sales enablement and marketing programs, while crafting breakthrough work in a variety of mediums. We work in a very complex industry, but telling our story visually can help bring clarity to our company and products.

The right candidate will be someone who has experience in B2B orgs and with supporting product marketing and sales teams. We are in search of someone who is strategic, hands-on, and comfortable in a fast moving organization and excited to impact Paxos ’s products and business. 

What you will do:

  • Work closely with the Product Marketing team on developing dynamic marketing and sales collateral
  • Build out and implement insightful creative ideas that successfully stretch across multiple channels
  • Synthesize briefs into strategic creative concepts and execute on projects from concept to delivery
  • Develop and implement website design and template updates, maintaining and iterating site to achieve business goals 
  • Balance brand and business goals—ensuring all assets live up to Paxos’ executional standards while delivering on channel-specific best practices
  • Manage external creative vendors and freelancers including video teams to develop digital and offline assets
  • Gain a deep understanding of the financial markets and help shape our visual communications through marketing efforts such as our website, product one-pagers, social media assets, employee collateral and event signage

You should have:

  • 4-6 years of experience in either a b2b company or creative agency setting with a focus on art direction and digital design
  • A strategic creative mind, adept at unpacking and resolving a challenge and eloquently presenting the rationale for a solution
  • Strong sense of design aesthetic
  • A portfolio that showcases a wide array of integrated experience with both above-the-line and below-the-line initiatives
  • The ability to effectively partner with various key stakeholders and manage multiple projects at once
  • The ability to synthesize briefs, conceptualize, and execute quickly
  • A process that is meticulously organized, vigilant, and detail-oriented
  • An appreciation for a fast-paced and ever-changing environment with a "no task is too small" attitude
  • Experience using a website building tool like Wordpress Elementor, and working knowledge of HTML/CSS
  • Experience working with traditional graphic design tools (PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, Indesign)
  • Interest and ability to deeply understand client needs and mindsets (including fintech companies, banks, traders, crypto natives, broker-dealers, financial institutions, etc.)

Other than these qualifications, we're hoping to bring someone on board who loves what they do and can't wait to join an amazing team.

An Insider's view of Paxos

What are some social events your company does?

We have fantastic company-wide events and functional team events. My favorite of recent was the Compliance Team outing consisting of a Cycle Beats class at Equinox followed by a delicious group dinner in Flatiron. Also, you can't beat the weekly Happy Hours where you can connect with everyone at the company!

What does your typical day look like?

Everyday at Paxos is filled with collaboration between team members, departments, offices, and partners. The ops day kicks-off by call with our Singapore office and is structured around daily crypto and fiat processing windows. My favorite part of the day is meeting with engineers to improve our products for both our customers and employees.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Paxos back in 2017 as a Software Engineer. Now that I have grown into a Senior Software Engineer 2 years later, I have more confidence working with new technology and working cross functionally. This growth has also given me more opportunities to own projects from end to end and embrace new challenges.

Senior Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a member of the product team, collaborating with other teams at the company is core to my day-to-day at Paxos. We have a daily scrum with our executive team and functional leads every morning to discuss any important business items and for any project that I work on, I work very closely with our engineering, operations, BD and compliance teams.
