Job Description

The Company

Stears is an intelligence startup of 25+ people using data to answer questions about Africa. Our mission is to become the world’s most trusted provider of African data & insight to global businesses, finance and policy professionals. We make this possible by integrating all our intelligence (news & analysis, proprietary data, aggregated public data, licensed data, forecasts, and reports) into a searchable platform, complemented by a rich mobile experience.

Our customers currently pay for access to Stears’ intelligence through a web platform, that includes daily insight and data. Our experts are always ready to answer client data questions about any sector, market or African country.

We are looking for a design lead who loves to learn and be challenged, and enjoys working in a high-performing team where he/she is supported, given responsibility, and held to high standards.


The Role

Why it’s important: You will play a key role in enabling our engineering, marketing, and editorial teams to improve our user experience, grow our subscriber base, and elevate our brand. This is particularly important as we ramp up coverage of the Nigerian elections and relaunch Stears Elections. Your work will be seen by and impact millions.

What it covers:  As the Design Lead, you will continue to build Stears’ reputation as a design leader in the data and media space. We stand out from other Nigerian publications because of our focus on creative brand identity and good user experience (for more context see this article or these tweets). We’re looking for someone to bring fresh creative energy and push us to the next level.

This role involves a mix of leadership, strategy, and execution. You will be supported by other designers but are ultimately the one responsible for delivering design assets across a range of work streams.
