Work From Home / Remote, AP

Creative Director (Remote - Canada)

Join our small, fiery team on our mission to usher in the Bitcoin Golden Age.

Shakepay is one of the fastest growing startups in Canada. We've grown 10x in the last year. 2% of Canadians use Shakepay. We're building something really special. We need true believers to join our team. We're looking for ambitious professionals with a thirst for knowledge that are interested in working with the most exciting financial innovation ever created: Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is important because it enables wealth to be stored with a person without need for a third party. Its fundamental use-case as a store of value with a predictable monetary policy is having profound implications on freeing people into financial sovereignty.


Creative Director

We are entering a new age for financial services. Legacy banking products are built on lackluster and lazy workmanship while new experiences are crafted with heart and care. 

You will head and redefine the brand at Shakepay, creating campaigns and production material that will inspire generations of Canadians to build wealth through Bitcoin.



You must have some knowledge about Bitcoin for this position. If you don't right now, a few hours on YouTube will give you the basics for a conversation with the team.


You will:

  • Get your hands dirty, create stunning UI and product visuals: working in a startup on a solo visual design team means you’ll be creative directing your own design from A-to-Z and managing out-sourcing
  • Head the creative direction of important public campaigns: work on advertising campaigns that go beyond aesthetics, create visuals to impress and deliver quantifiable value
  • Understand Shakepay’s identity and constraints: work iteratively, no vanity, only challenges and rewards
  • Work on cross-functional teams: work collaboratively with a team of multi-disciplinary talents
  • Be cross-functional yourself: work autonomously and request for help when needed but also pull your own weight
  • Have fun: you own the brand, have fun with it!

Must have:

  • A polished portfolio
  • Mastery of design tools
  • Mastery of design languages for screen/web editorial/app and potentially press/print/production
  • Knowledge of current design trends
  • Mastery of timeless design
  • Leadership skills and vision
  • Excellent communication and organization skills
  • Willingness to learn more with the ability to learn fast
  • Be a critical thinker and open to feedback
  • Acute sensibility of business needs and Marketing/Communication practices


Nice to have:

  • Understanding of online marketing and advertising
  • Experience in motion graphics, video editing, photography, the peripherals
  • Entrepreneurial or Intrapreneurial minded
  • Knowledgeable in cryptocurrencies and trading/investment
  • University or higher education degree in related fields


What you get:

  • Potentially life-changing stock options. We believe everyone at Shakepay should have the financial upside for building a generational company
  • Remote-friendly work environment: work from anywhere in Canada. If you're in Montreal, you can work from the office
  • Generous vacation time: we think time off is essential, and highly encourage it
  • Personal development: we're here to help you define and hit your personal career goals so that you can get where you want to be
  • Continued learning: every Shaker gets a yearly budget to spend on learning
  • Employer-covered group insurance: health, dental, paramedical, disability and travel coverage to ensure you're at your best
  • Get paid in Bitcoin: choose to take a percentage of your salary in the hardest, soundest money the world has ever known
  • A collaborative and friendly team: we succeed together and we have fun doing it
  • MacBook: company-issued laptop to make sure you're doing your best work
  • Equipment stipend: every Shaker receives a stipend to use toward setting up their home office

This role is the perfect opportunity if you’re interested in growing with a fantastic company, advancing your career, and helping us build a world-class culture.  Come join our team!

If you don't meet all the requirements but believe you would be a great fit for this role then give us your pitch and tell us why.
