Who we are

At Help Scout, we’re on a mission to help businesses delight more customers. We’ve been on this journey since 2011, and today more than 12,000 companies use our platform to provide outstanding customer support. We’ve been fully remote from the beginning, and have a team of 140+ people all over the world.

We love crafting beautiful products and growing a business together, but we're also trying to do something bigger. We're building a company that brings out your best and leaves the world a better place — a company that seeks balance between profit and purpose. That's why we've been a Certified B Corporation since 2019 and have pledged 1% of our equity back to the community.

Help Scout’s success hinges on hiring talented, high-accountability people who want to be part of creating a culture where we all feel challenged and supported to do our best work. We hope that excites you to join us! 

Company values

Happy to Help

Help is our first name. We show up for others, not because we have to, but because we want to. We share knowledge and give freely by default, and operate with generosity and empathy for each other, our customers, and our community. After all, there is no I in team (or software).

Craft over Convention

Although it’s tempting to follow a well-worn path, we push ourselves to run beyond it — even when that sets us apart from our peers. We’re building a culture where it’s safe to be ambitious and hold each other to high standards. That’s why we obsess over the last 10%, because it shows up for our customers and the business in powerful ways.

Progress not Perfection

The work of building a product, culture, and brand is never done – we ship our best effort, listen, iterate, then repeat. Seeking progress requires the vulnerability to be curious, humble, and hungry to learn. Great ideas can come from anywhere, so we share our work openly, welcome the perspective of others, and continuously search for what can be improved.

Own the Outcome 

Ownership is key to our collective success. We consider the impact on our team and our community before we act, and believe that trust and integrity are non-negotiable. To create a better future, our decisions are made with stakeholders today and ten years from now in mind.

Our impact

Brand Creative is a small but mighty in-house team of designers and developers. While our primary focus is to bring our product to market on our website, our team is well-rounded and supports many creative outputs — from event signage all the way up to retreats & swag.

We are arbiters of the brand. Everything customer-facing passes through the design team in some way. You’ll be making things that are seen and used by several hundred thousand people every month, and it’s your job to ensure that every moment — no matter how big or small — looks, feels, and sounds like Help Scout.

About the role

  • The Lead Brand Designer is accountable for executing high-caliber work across multiple workstreams with little oversight, bringing quality and efficiency to Brand Creative.

  • You will own and implement design systems, frameworks, and direction documents that serve as reference and starting points for the rest of the team.

  • This team member is a multiplier that inspires and mentors teammates, fosters consistency across channels, and elevates our brand and the way we work.

About you

  • You’re a stellar visual designer with a keen attention to detail.

  • You’re curious and consultative with teammates and cross-functional partners, seeing their feedback as a gift that’s critical to your work’s success.

  • You leverage soft skills and asynchronous techniques to move work forward, often handling multiple complex projects in tandem.

  • You keep a pulse on company goals to ensure you’re pursuing the most impactful tactics. If you see other opportunities, you speak up and propose them.

  • You know when to use time-saving approaches and when to build new systems. You also are comfortable delegating and breaking work down into manageable chunks.

  • You embrace ambiguity and find ways to create clarity, for yourself, and your fellow teammates.

For other roles, we are only able to hire in the following countries: United States, Canada, Australia, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, and Norway.

We’re working on expanding this list. Our Talent Acquisition team can help answer any questions about location after starting the recruiting process.

We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We have read the studies and understand that diverse teams build better products, bring more perspective to the table, contribute to a company’s financial success, and help foster a more inclusive environment for all employees, but the bottom line is that it's the right thing to do.

To provide you with the best experience, we can support you with accommodations or adjustments at any stage of the recruitment process. Simply inform our recruitment team during your conversation with them.
