Graphic Designer

Apptegy is an EdTech company based in Little Rock, Arkansas. At Apptegy, we help K12 schools communicate more while working less. We build technology — mobile apps, websites, and a publishing platform called Thrillshare — that makes it easy for schools to share positive stories with their communities and the world.

We have big plans for our Client Work team. We’re growing quickly, yet remain focused on crafting an incredible experience for our teams and clients. We value and expect thoughtfulness and high performance from everyone at Apptegy.

More about this role and about you:

For each school district we work with, we build custom Android and iPhone apps and a new website that integrates with our publishing platform, Thrillshare. In this position, you will be creating designs for the apps and websites.

Essential functions of the position:

  • You will collaborate on all aspects of application design and development
  • You will make suggestions, ask questions, and always push the limits of the rest of the team
  • You always keep the user in mind
  • You create designs in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator

Requirements:

  • You have a four-year college degree in Graphic Design, Computer Science, or related field
  • You are enthusiastic about creating beautiful, high quality designs for mobile devices
  • You have significant experience with Adobe Creative Suite (especially Photoshop and Illustrator)
  • Experience with HTML, CSS, and/or Javascript is a plus

About you

You want to master the skill of self-improvement and understand that we all have weak spots.

You are driven to do amazing work and complete every task at an exceptional level. 

You constantly push yourself to get more done in less time by attacking your work with intensity.

You ask for help when you need it, own up to your mistakes, and thrive on feedback so you can improve.

More about Apptegy

Apptegy’s mission is to help school leaders share the story of every student. Amazing moments are happening in school districts, but those moments rarely become stories that reach the community. Our products empower school leaders and educators to share those stories and run better schools.

Our unique value is with our publishing platform, Thrillshare, that allows schools to update all of their online communication from one place. Schools can write a message once, and Thrillshare automatically updates their iPhone app, Android app, website, Twitter, Facebook, text messages, and voice calls.

What it’s like to work at Apptegy

Working at Apptegy is… different. For most of our team members working here is unlike anything they’ve ever experienced. We have an entire floor to ourselves in the Simmons Building (the tallest in Arkansas), which other tenants call “the Fun Floor.” True to its name, we have a great time.

The office has all the usual perks of a thriving startup: standing desks, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, beer in the fridge, the best technology, etc. Yet, being part of our team is much more than a list of fun perks.

Our most important asset is our culture. If we get the right people working together in productive ways, we can do anything.

Thoughtfulness

Internally, we look for chances to make each others’ days. Noticing someone needs a pick-me-up, remembering birthdays, and celebrating others’ success all help strengthen our internal bonds. Externally, we want to amaze people with how much we care in both the products we build and services we provide — that happens by noticing and acting on opportunities to value others.

High Performance

What we are trying to accomplish is hard. While thoughtfulness is central to how we engage others, a personal ethic of high performance is needed across the company for us to succeed. High performance is a major focus in every role across the company.

Crafting the Experience

We love to craft experiences and that’s what you’ll see from your first day. We are purposeful and take the time to make sure that every team member understands the business from A to Z, knows who our clients are, and the broader changes happening in the education market.

    Salary, benefits, and why you’ll love working at Apptegy:

    • Competitive salary
    • Medical, vision, and dental insurance
    • Retirement investment matching
    • Flexible paid time off policy
    • Work with great people in a fun environment (instagram.com/apptegy/)
    • Be a part of a team that is transforming the way schools engage their communities!

    Apptegy is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
