About DuckDuckGo

We're raising the standard of trust online, making privacy simple and accessible for everyone. (We're hiring, too!)

Actively Hiring

Hi, we’re DuckDuckGo, the Internet privacy company for everyone who wants to take back their privacy now. For over a decade, we’ve been building our all-in-one product, developing new privacy technology, and working with policymakers to make online privacy simple and accessible for all.

Our app is now downloaded more than 75M times a year, and our private search engine packaged with it has become the #2 search engine on mobile in over 21 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, and the Netherlands. Oh, and we’ve been profitable since 2014 with revenue currently exceeding $100 million a year! Now, we’re rolling out a suite of new privacy solutions, including Email ProtectionApp Tracking Protection and our first-ever Desktop Apps for Mac and Windows.

We’re looking for a Senior Brand Designer to help shape our all-in-one privacy solution and join our mission to show the world that protecting your privacy online can be simple.

The Opportunity

In this role, you will collaborate with team members at all levels to shape how we communicate our brand throughout the entire DuckDuckGo experience — from marketing to product and beyond.

Using your hands-on skills, you will create impactful work informed by data and user feedback, lead projects that showcase and define our brand, and retain consistent execution across multiple platforms: product, print, partner communication, events, advertising, and soft goods. You will also have a voice and opportunity to leverage our design approach in all brand-related decisions.

You’ll be responsible for carrying ideas forward with little direction, exercising discretion and independent judgment while actively maintaining a strong design culture and openness to educate others, sharing your work, engaging in honest critique, and being transparent throughout your process.

We are fully remote and seek to empower our team to be self-directed and self-motivated in their projects. We provide both project and career advisory to support your career growth. If that seems awesome, and you like the idea of our core values — build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction — you’ll fit right in!

What You Will Bring to DuckDuckGo

  • 6+ years of brand design experience with a minimum of 2+ years in relevant senior design-level positions at significant global consumer brands.
  • Ability to lead and collaborate on high-impact and complex projects, from proposal through post-mortem.
  • Skills to wrangle vague problems, propose innovative solutions, and execute them with a strong focus on metrics.
  • Ability to carry ideas forward with confidence and discretion while working proactively, independently, and transparently.
  • Demonstrable strengths and hands-on experience in brand design, typography, color, and composition, having contributed significantly to branding efforts for at least one large software or digital product.
  • Exceptional creativity with a strong aesthetic sensibility and intuition.
  • Proficiency with current industry design tools needed to carry out brand work.
  • Ability to provide creative direction and lead difficult brand conversations with empathy and discretion.
  • Experience in applying design systems and contributing to their evolution to optimize impact across product, brand, and marketing.
  • Ability to write creative briefs that define and communicate project goals with stakeholders.
  • Experience working with qualitative user research.

How We Will Support You

Our core values — build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction — underpin how we work day-to-day and the support we give our team members. We strive to empower our team members to be self-directed and self-motivated in their work.

  • Remote First, Always: We’ve always been a fully distributed company with team members all over the world. We trust you to get your work done wherever, whenever.
  • Commitment to Personal Growth: Every team member has an annual budget of $1,250 USD to invest in their professional development. Every team member also has a dedicated Career Advisor, who serves as a guide to help you develop your strengths, identify your motivations, and understand your opportunities for growth.
  • Leadership: We have many different types of leaders and possible combinations of leadership roles, so you can grow your career in a way that aligns best with your personal goals. You can seek additional leadership roles by being directly responsible for projects, taking ownership of areas of the company, developing and maintaining internal processes, or pursuing advisory roles.
  • Work/Life Balance: Team members have the freedom and flexibility to organize their own work schedules. We want you to thrive both in and out of the office. We trust you to use good judgment and take the time off that you need to bring your best self to work.

We also offer paid parental leave, a co-working stipend, office setup reimbursement, and a wellness stipend. More support resources can be found in our, Team Member Support Guide, which explains how we make your well-being a priority.
