castlelab is an independent Design Studio based out of Vancouver, now expanding to Toronto, Canada.
We are a team of multidisciplinary digital designers focused on branding, user experience, product design and development. We extend departments of growing startups and international organizations. Our team is intentionally small, working with a few clients at a time to guarantee quality at every feature.
We create long-term brand strategies that are well-designed and executed across all business functions, with the capacity to improve consumer experience, competitive advantage and financial performance.

We hire the most passionate and talented university students, and train them to have an impact using digital design. Here's our co-founder speaking at Adobe MAX 2019 about castlelab's philosophy, summarised partly in this post.
castlelab is growing quick, and we need passionate people on the team.
You are a people person, and you provide most value by managing designers. You would be responsible for coordinating design work and communicating to the client updates until delivery, while keeping every stakeholder involved in the process. You identity roadblocks and are able to suggest solutions ahead of time.
You are interested in building and growing an organization while keeping the product at the heart of the value-chain. You would be responsible for finding new business opportunities, including clients, partners and talent.
You are very comfortable using Webflow, and you have a good understanding of front-end development languages. You are comfortable building an entire website / product and collaborating with a team of designers to produce good UX.
Passionate about web design, you master Figma, Sketch App and prototyping softwares to create visual designs for clients. As part of the design team, you are comfortable communicating in English over regular video calls and Slack, as well as taking initiative on projects.
