About Deck Rooster
What is the native language of the business world?
Power Point Presentations!
Yet, most business presentations are downright boring and extremely confusing - complete antithesis of “effective communication” that presentations supposedly help achieve. Deck Rooster is changing that, one presentation at a time.
We are a tiny team of Consultants, Storytellers and Communication Designers. We work with fast growing startups and transform their presentations from boring to captivating. Since starting in October 2014, we have worked with over 150 startups and helped them raise over $50M from leading investors. Over the years, we have emerged as founders’ #1 choice for solving their visual communication problems.
About the role
Work on something that is extremely important to a business
Work-culture where everyone is pursuing excellence and doing their best work
Complete creative freedom
No leave tracking for as long as you are being responsible and reasonable
Freedom to try out roles and tasks that you have never undertaken
As a Communication Designer, you will play the key role of converting the presentation narrative into crisp visuals that captivate the audience. For each project, you will be working as part of a 3-people project team and will be required to understand the core message, brainstorm the narrative, drive the visualizations and execute the final design for each slide.
Each project lasts around a month. So you will be working on something completely new every month. Every startup we work with, is doing something innovative and is run by some of the smartest founders around. What this also means is that there is never a dull moment - at work we are discussing the future of Bitcoins, impact of Plastics-to-Fuel technology, challenges faced by large retail chains or why India needs another startup accelerator. Cross-breeding of ideas is inevitable!
