Job Description

We are HasGeek and we host five big conferences a year in Bangalore, plus many workshops, hacknights and open house gatherings for geeks - people so obsessed with their pursuits that they know more about it than so called "experts" do. We are an open company. We are fairly transparent about how our business works. Our customers are incredibly smart people who love what they do, and we love helping them learn and share. We are programmers and wordsmiths, architects and videographers, but are not particularly good on a static canvas. That is where we need you. Every edition of our conference takes on a theme which is the guiding beacon of how that event plays out. We are looking for someone to translate these themes into pictures on a variety of canvases - everything from 8ft high billboard to badges handed out to participants at the conference. Our conferences are fairly technical and we love poking at geek/nerd stereotypes, so it helps if you get that sort of humour. Did you know that the Python language we're particularly fond of was named after the Monty Python comedy troupe? That the word "spam" for junk email also comes from Monty Python? Most things in tech have some roots like these in movie/TV/comic fandom. Your job is to tease! When "big data" became trending, we named our conference "The Fifth Elephant", after a Terry Pratchett book, to tease the industry's obsession with the "elephant" metaphor for remembering things. Making artwork for that event was so much fun! That event is now four editions old and over a thousand people attend it each year. WHAT WILL YOU DO FOR US? ---------------------------------------------- ► You will be designing event themes, motifs and illustrations that go along with the conference brand. You've really got to catch people's attention with this stuff! ► You will be creating designs that go on conference merchandise. ► You will be creating templates for advertisements to complement our social media efforts. ►You will be creating graphics for the event websites. REQUIREMENTS: --------------------------- ► You have an eye for interesting, iconic imagery and visualizations and a skilled hand for creating your own work using popular tools of the trade such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and/or free software favorites such as GIMP, Kirta or Inkscape. ► We'd love to see samples of your work or hobby projects online. Please upload your portfolio onto Cupick and add your Behance and/or other links to your Cupick profile when applying. COMPENSATIONS, PERKS and "Will I Get a Mac?" ------------------------------------------------------------------------- With great success comes greater responsibility. And compensation. Almost everyone who's worked with us and moved on earns 200%-500% of what they were making before they joined us. Being HasGeek Alumni is good for your career. We pay market-rate salaries. This is one of the perks of being a company that makes real money from actual customers. Who are our customers? The thousands of individuals who find jobs on this job board every month, well over 5000 individuals who've attended our events (and paid for it), and a marquee list of pretty much every major technology company that engages with developers. We provide travel grants so you can work out of inspiring places - half our team spent most of June this year, hacking in the Himalayas. We regularly take off to the mountains or the beach to get a break from Bangalore's chaotic traffic or to find some inspiration. Specifically, ► We'll cover your personal phone and internet bills for upto INR 2000 per month. ► Your choice of work-related equipment, paid for by the company (the rumors about Mac and us are true). ► Flexible timing and work culture with unlimited vacations. ► You'll get to hang out with the smartest geeks from around the world, and we don't mean us, we mean the people who come to our events ► Learn from your peers at the finest conferences (and not just HasGeek) around the world. Yep we will cover for you. We are looking for someone as good as we are or better. Interested? Apply now and send us your portfolio on Cupick.
