TLDR: our company is the clear leader in AI video generation, established in 2017, with our own AI R&D department (separate from our product department).

- This is not a usual job description, but there is a good reason for that.
- It's going to take you 5 minutes to read it, but it is 100% worth it.
- Let us explain.
- Over the past 100 years, media production went through cycles of innovation that impacted the production, distribution, and consumption of media in ways that we couldn't predict.
- Things are changing quickly, technologies grow and evolve in multiple waves.
- One of the ways to think about how technologies emerge is that stuff tends to begin small and slow. There is an early period where the technology isn't quite working and it doesn't look like it's going to be very useful or important.
- But then, it reaches a point where the growth accelerates upwards. It moves from the period when it was kind of a crazy idea to a period of excitement and growth.
- Everything starts working.
At Synthesia, we believe the future of media is synthetic. Not sure what's that about? Check this article written by our CEO Victor Riparbelli: https://www.synthesia.io/post/the-future-of-synthetic-media
It's kind of a crazy idea.
But after 5 years of research and a roller coaster ride of successes and failures, here is a graph showing the number of AI videos created by our customers in 2021 (in 2022 it's growing exponentially).
Not that crazy of an idea anymore, huh? 😉
It's for you to decide, but in 2021 we've raised two funding rounds with a total of $62M from legendary investors such as Kleiner Perkins and Google Ventures.
And yet, we're just getting started building the foundations of a whole new type of media.
We're crazy early, and you have the chance to be a pioneer and shape the future of video production!
To continue our growth trajectory, we're looking for a passionate lead marketing designer.
We have a product/market fit, we've identified our personas/jobs do be done and we're ready to push the throttle down. Come aboard! 🚀
About the job
In this position, you will join our Marketing team as a lead marketing designer. To be honest, we believe we have a decent marketing design currently, but... now it's the time to make it really awesome.
How do we perceive design?
At Synthesia, form follows function. If something looks better but it’s less usable than an alternative, it won’t be implemented. It’s quite simple to design something that looks good on the surface, but isn’t useable. It’s hard to combine both. We are all here because of our customers and the solution that is the easiest to understand and use, wins. Now, it’s our job to also make it as beautiful as possible.
How will your day to day look like?
Defining brand guidelines, designing new website sections and making new design templates for other team members. And, of course, having fun along the way.
