Position Description

Are you able to convey complicated concepts so that everyone can understand them?

Awesome, Peerio's design team is looking for a graphic designer just like you!

Peerio is a Montreal-based company specialising in usable end-to-end encryption tools for team collaboration across desktop and mobile platforms.
