AbCellera is a young, energetic, and rapidly growing tech company with an amazing team that searches, decodes, and analyzes natural immune systems to find antibodies that its partners can develop into drugs to prevent and treat disease. We are seeking an experienced Bioinformatician who can build and grow with us - an expert multitasker who loves finding order in large datasets from complex experimental pipelines. If you’re self-motivated, creative, and thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment, we would love to hear from you. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of Canada’s most innovative biotech companies and to contribute to our cutting-edge research on antibody engineering, advanced mammalian cell systems, and molecular research supporting the discovery of novel monoclonal antibodies for therapeutic use.
How you might spend your days:
- Extending the visual landscape of AbCellera’s brand by scaling its foundation into a full-bodied graphical language and architecture with a repertoire of signature motifs, bespoke iconography, and differentiated artistic and photographic treatments. Be the custodian of visual brand coherence and consistency across all communication pieces throughout the company.
- Designing branded web and print layout templates and apply them to presentations, digital campaign emails and landing pages, social media posts and ads, and internal materials related to employee training and engagement.
- Supporting and collaborating closely with the Information Designer to ensure aesthetic cohesion and cognitive effectiveness across all communication pieces involving visual design.
- Supporting and collaborating closely with external stakeholders such as interior designers, architects, printers, and fine artists in the design of environmental elements (signage, way-finders, and murals for our expanding facilities) and physical objects (promotional ads and swag).
- Collaborating with executives and scientists across multiple disciplines: business development, research & development, people & culture, under the guidance of the marketing communications team.
We'd love to hear from you if:
- You have a university degree or college diploma in graphic or media design with 8-10 years of full-time agency and/or in-house design experience

- Your portfolio showcases full-suite brand designs encompassing original logo design, brand book / graphical usage guidelines for internal and external consumption, branded templates for print and digital applications (ads, stationery, promotional swag).
- Your portfolio demonstrates extensive commercially applied digital content such as responsive webpages, email newsletters, and branded assets for social media campaigns spanning multiple marketing channels under a unified brand.
- Your portfolio includes hand-sketched mock-ups that demonstrates your process in ideation and concepting.
- You have an advanced knowledge in designing for PowerPoint and Keynote. You have a working knowledge of Acrobat, Excel, Word, and Google Suite. A basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is strongly desired but not required.
- You understand how to manage color profiles and file formats and how they implicate downstream workflows in printing, web publishing, and video rendering.
- You are detail-oriented and meticulous: you often identify gaps that most may miss.
