About Radar

Radar is location infrastructure for every product and service. The most innovative companies, from Panera to T-Mobile to Zillow, use Radar's location hyper-accurate geofencing SDKs and cost-effective geocoding APIs to power location-based experiences across hundreds of millions of devices worldwide.

Founded in 2016, Radar is headquartered in New York, NY. Radar has raised $85.5M from leading venture capital firms including Accel and Insight Partners. Our team is growing and has backgrounds from companies like Google Maps, Uber, Foursquare, and Facebook. 

About the role

Radar is looking for a multi-disciplinary Senior Brand Designer with strong motion design skills to execute our recently unveiled brand refresh across all customer touch points and internal teams. You'll design, develop and implement our refreshed brand design system, and bring location-based experiences to life for our enterprise customers.

As a Senior Brand Designer, you’ll play a pivotal role in shaping our design culture, evolving the Radar brand, and helping our customers realize the next generation of location-based experiences. 

You will report to our Senior Director of Design. This is a NYC-based position located at our headquarters in Union Square. You'll be working from our New York office Monday-Thursday with the opportunity to WFH on Fridays.

For candidates based in the United States, the base salary range for this full-time position is between $120,000 - $150,000/year.

In addition to cash compensation, Radar offers full-time employees a competitive equity plan with stock option grants. This is a meaningful ownership stake in the company that we provide to our employees as we build a category-defining company together.

Our salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location. The range displayed on this job posting reflects the minimum and maximum target for new hire salaries for the position across all US locations. Your exact offer may vary based on market location, job-related skills, experience, and relevant education or training.

How we work

Designers at Radar are equal parts big-picture strategic thinker and hands-on skilled craftsperson. We learn, gain insights, and communicate our ideas quickly and efficiently through sketches, design mocks, and motion tests. We sweat the design details, whether it’s preparing a production file for print or QAing the marketing site in development with engineers. We actively invite collaboration and feedback from our colleagues and leadership because we know that this will lead to a better brand experience. While we primarily communicate in Slack, working together in-person in our NYC HQ allows us to quickly ideate and get things done. 

One of our most important company values is "Walk a mile," as in walking a mile in the customer's shoes. This also means literally walking a mile, getting up from your desk and developing a deep understanding of how location services behave in the real world. To us, a week is a long time, and we expect to ship big things every week.

What you’ll do:

  • Design, develop and implement our refreshed brand design system across all customer touch points for digital and physical experiences (e.g., guidelines, templates, digital ad campaigns, events, website, case studies, etc.)
  • Motion design for our social media, paid media, mock UIs and the product experience through use-case scenarios that help customers envision the future of location-based experiences with Radar
  • Expand on the brand design system with ongoing exploration and development of the design toolkit (e.g., illustration, motion, iconography, graphic elements, etc.)
  • Advocate for a consistent and cohesive brand experience with thoughtful, results-driven design solutions
  • Collaborate with product design, setting a standard for consistency and excellence across all channels

You should have:

  • 6+ years of visual design experience creating brands and/or visual design systems that extend across digital and traditional mediums
  • 3+ years of hands-on motion design skills working in AfterEffects (Cinema 4D, a plus)
  • Strong typographic skills and demonstrated experience in print and digital environments
  • A strong portfolio showcasing your brand design work across digital, motion and print 
  • Expert proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite and Figma, and mid-level proficiency in After Effects
  • High attention to detail with a drive for pixel-perfect perfection
  • Exceptional organizational skills with the ability to prioritize and balance multiple projects
  • Interest in technology and consumer behaviors in retail, restaurants and travel industries, in both the digital and physical environments, and how they intersect to improve customer experiences 
  • Experience at agencies, on growth/startup teams, or designing for developers
  • Experience with product animations and illustrations, a plus

You’ll be working with:

  • Audrey Na, Senior Director of Design
  • Nick Patrick, CEO and Co-Founder
  • Phil Sidoti, VP of Growth
  • Our Marketing, Product and Sales teams!

Benefits & Perks:

  • Competitive compensation package and equity plan
  • 401(k) plan with a generous employer match

An Insider's view of Radar

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We offer and value unlimited PTO so employees don’t feel limited when it comes to vacations and personal days. We also offer flexible work hours so our team feels empowered to craft their schedule in a way that works for them, whether that means taking a break for an afternoon workout, or traveling and working from a different time zone at times


Recruiting Lead

What does your typical day look like?

A typical day involves prepping for and supporting prospective customer or partner calls, which we do in close collaboration with our all-star sales and BD teams. The goal is to ensure that prospects walk away with a clear understanding of how Radar can help build location-based experiences that delight end users, and help customers' business goals


Director of Sales Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Radar and the people here have been instrumental in my career development. Spanning multiple teams and promotions, my managers have encouraged full ownership over each new role and helped me take actionable steps toward my next. As we grow rapidly, I'm constantly learning & taking on new projects that give me access to stakeholders at every level.


Technology Partner Manager

What is your vision for the company?

Radar's vision is location infrastructure for every product and service. We want to power the next generation of location-based experiences, from curbside pickup to delivery to contactless payments, across industries including restaurants, retail, travel, logistics, gaming, and more.



What projects are you most excited about?

Location is inherently messy and nondeterministic, so the technical challenges I enjoy working on involve creating intuitive user experiences around providing visibility into how our SDK behaves in the wild. These efforts improve our developer experience and help to make the onramp for creating location-based experiences frictionless.
