About Raise

Raise is an online marketplace where consumers can buy discounted gift cards and sell their the gift cards they don’t want for cash. We are a fast-paced company taking over the secondary gift card industry, and this a rare ground-floor opportunity to show what you’ve got.

Problem solvers and multi-talented designers thrive at Raise. Every member of the product team comes from a different background and each has a specialty. But we’re also asked to rise to a variety of creative challenges both within and outside of our product. Our design team is close-knit—we have fun together and push each other to be better. We share our knowledge while we learn from others.

What You Could Be Working On

The Web Experience

Our website is the perfect marriage between form and function. As an interactive designer, you will work on our fully responsive, resolution independent, global website of its caliber. It represents where web design is headed and where our customers are headed as well. We are presented with the challenge of maintaining consistency across multiple browsers, devices and resolutions. Our team is mindful of these evolutions, and we continue to think progressively as the web changes.

Raise Multi Device

Our product team continually expands and improves how people buy, sell, and manage their gift cards on their phones and tablets to deliver a big experience on even the smallest screen.

Expanding Our Reach

We think Raise is pretty easy to love. Who doesn’t love discounted money? Our designers channel this enthusiasm into marketing and branding pieces (for web, mobile, and email) that tell the Raise story in ways that are just as clean, compelling, and dynamic as the product itself.
