And, as a result, clients really seem to enjoy Selma (Swiss Google rating 4,8 ⭐️ (280+), 05/22). Our team likes to use Miro, Figma, Adobe CC, Canva and other exciting tools that make designing more accessible for all.
This job is best suited for a confident, experienced creative who wants to focus on one product, take ownership, see the impact of design decisions immediately and eventually lead a team of their own.

Your strong visual design skills and ability to find the optimal solutions for the job will make Selma grow further. Building towards a fresh and consistent brand and design system makes our work faster. And your ability to prioritise, involve people and work with calm endeavour will get ideas moving from vision to production smoothly.
Your daily work is a mix of creative thinking and hands-on graphic design. This means e.g. building towards consistent brand, asset libraries and reusable templates, making top-of-the-class designs and managing outsourced productions from the design angle.
Our marketing team of 5 is a creative bunch of acquisition, engagement, copy and community talents. The team is led by Carina (CMO), who enjoys ideation sessions and is an expert in magically making Swiss German phrases short and punchy.
Your “home base” is Selma’s design team. Valeria (Head of Design) and Henrik (Senior UX/UI designer) are here to provide you with guidance and peer support. The design team’s shared responsibility is to mature and shepherd the brand – making Selma look lovely and appealing across all touch points. We value smooth DesignOps and provide our team with access to well-maintained libraries and easy “DIY”-templates.
Lovely! This is how the hiring process works:

The Selma team includes folks from Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Ukraine, Vietnam and Nepal.
