We are looking for someone with a creative eye who can bring abstract stuff to life. We are looking for that type of person who can tell our story through great designs.
The role is an experienced role so you would need to have some prior experience, preferably in a design studio or advertising agency. 2-4 years of experience would be sufficient for the role.
We work primarily onsite at our office in Lagos (Lekki) from 9–5 every day, so you would have to be prepared to come to the office every day. And if you say oh, what about COVID, we are all working from home right now but we are firm believers in the human race and our ability to overcome this. So in a matter of time, we would be working from the office again seeing beautiful faces.
We always and strongly encourage candidates from all backgrounds and identities to apply. With each new hire, we look to diversify, strengthen our team and be more purposeful about building our culture. On the other hand, we look to give you the opportunity to grow, do the most impactful work of your life tackling problems that matter while being happy doing it.
About the Job
You know how they say pictures speak louder than words, yeah designs do the same.
We believe that designs play a huge role in forming people’s perception of a product or service. Your mission is to create the kind of finger-licking designs that will make people want to associate with Quidax. For us it’s not just still images, part of your mission would be to create motion graphics.
You will need to dig into your creative juices every day. We want designs that people would want to engage with every time. Sometimes it’s the little things that will make the difference. An icon here or a drop shadow there. We will be relying on your attention to detail a whole lot.
There are times we may not see where a picture or an illustration could make a difference in a blog post. We would definitely need you to come through in those times without receiving a brief on it. There are also times when you’ll have to bring in something fresh when we get stuck on our ideas of how something should look.
Here’s an example of what your day to day at Quidax might look like:
- Create designs for our social media and sometimes for print
- Conceptualise designs for campaigns
- Create motion graphics videos
- Brainstorm with the team to come up with cool ideas
- As we are social distancing you would also need to design a map of the best places to order food from
It differs from day-to-day.
We are a company of learners in a lot of ways. We don’t expect you to be perfect so we would prefer if you were hungry and willing to learn. We like humble people too.
We are looking for people who are driven, patient, empathetic, and have an ear to what’s happening around the world with an eye for pop culture.
We are looking for the kind of person who a customer would say your design resembles a child’s drawing. Instead of taking offence (actually it’s okay to vex small, we are humans) but the larger response would be to check yourself and your design to see where you might have gone wrong and what you can do to make it right. Someone who focuses on doing what’s right and not just what’s easy.
We are very big on discipline as one of our core values, because we believe it is the soul of an army and it can make great things happen in the long run. So we have rules that have consequences attached to them and then we encourage everyone to govern themselves to do what is required and go over and beyond in service of our customers
We are big on openness and candor in the workplace, so if you see something that doesn’t make sense, it is your responsibility to say so. We are not afraid to disagree and argue about things so far we are doing it with the purpose of bringing out the best idea and not bringing people down.
We also like to have fun, we can look quite chilled, our interviews can be really great and funny experiences if you are not too wound up, we try to make you loosen up in the first couple of minutes and just have a conversation and not just give generic interviewy answers, we hate those. We are fans of alcohol and parties (after work hours) so if your thing is shots, beer, or both, you are in good company and we know a great catfish plug.
We are a cryptocurrency company, building to be the most influential crypto company in Africa, but it isn’t a crime to not know jack about cryptocurrency, every single person here learned on the job and we are more than happy to teach.
We are a cryptocurrency exchange and we make it easy for individuals and businesses to buy and sell cryptocurrency using their local currency. We also enable fintechs to provide cryptocurrency-related services to their customers through our API thereby making it possible for your customers to buy, sell, send, receive, or store crypto.
We are currently in Nigeria and we are building for Africa.
Our vision to create a world where sending money and value around the globe is as easy as sending a text message and we believe this future is going to be brought to you, courtesy digital currencies.
Our Core Values are
- Simplicity: as the sign of great understanding and empathy
- People: investing in our people and making the work experience a remarkable one
- Integrity: being true & honest; to ourselves and those counting on us
- Customers: the reason we exist because customers exist so we love and respect them
- Excellence: doing things in a first-class way, going above and beyond.

We pay very competitively in the Nigerian market for the matched experience and role.
Our benefits include health insurance, 4 weeks PTO, free lunch, we have a book club, and also a front-row seat to the biggest thing in finance in the last 100 years.
