About Piktochart

Our mission is to provide a design tool that’s both intuitive and indispensable. Whether you’re a marketer, teacher, or part of an internal communications team, we’re directing Piktochart to be laser-focused on what’s best for you and your goals.

No complex design software. No heavy designer fees. Just a simple, intuitive tool that helps you tell your story with the visual impact it deserves.

Besides having technical expertise and knowledge in the frontend domain, you are someone who is keen in leading and developing a team, as well as ensuring their execution and quality towards achieving the goals collectively.

You have the confidence and experience to make key decisions when it comes to technical direction or choices, and not afraid to take calculated risks. Following that, you are then able to plan, communicate, align, lead, and coach the frontend team towards the direction.
