TOTEM is and always has been a tech company. The 3 founders are engineers from Ecole Polytechnique & Centrale Paris, with strong customer experience & process automation at heart since the very beginning of the company. Technology is at the core of TOTEM’s DNA, and we strongly believe it's a crucial competitive advantage.
TOTEM has different products:
TOTAPP is our native mobile app for end users aka our client’s employees. It has an innovative primitive called « scan & go » : you scan a product, you slide a button, and tada, you’ve purchased a product from your office store.
TOTEND and TOTOPS are our admin applications (web, and native mobile app). They leverage hardware & software to fully automate the logistic supply chain processes of warehouses, from end to end : products which need to be bought, received, checked, added in racks, bundled to be delivered to our customers or our other warehouses. We use connected carts and our own app to have 0% errors on orders’ preparation and lots of technical solutions to improve traceability and have full control over the operations. We aim at making this product a reference for warehouse management for the next decades to come.
What’s your role as a Graphic Designer at TOTEM ?
One mission: design UX and UI for our consumers facing products and communications, while respecting brand guidelines
We like to describe our job openings with TOTEM’s 6 CORE VALUES :
MAKE IT & OWN IT: you are the design shaman of the company : you are the go to person and the main contributor for every matter that revolves around design. It goes from product, to brand development, from marketing to communications. You are literally the guardian of our visual identity.
UNLEASH THE ARTIST: at TOTEM we cherish creativity : beautiful designs make you vibrate and you are insatiably on the lookout for inspirations. You are a perfectionist, and you put a lot of effort in your work. You are a great communicator and keep every contributor up to date with clear roadmaps and reports. Pixel perfect is your mantra.
MAKE IMPACT POSITIVELY EVERYDAY: you’ll always look forward to pouring positive energy into the team. It doesn’t matter if you break things sometimes, but as long as you care and you dare to move things forward.
TOGETHER NO LIMITS: you are part of a bigger team. Your team can move mountains, but don’t forget… the more help you can get the farther we go ! Each and everyone of your colleagues will be able to help you deliver our vision to the world : create the best shopping experience at the office and free some precious time to do the things that really matter.
ROOT YOURSELF: you are very talented. You've been designing top-notched UX & UI for a long time, but also found joy in learning new creative skills like motion pictures or video editing. You master a lot of hard skills as well as soft skills such as communication, autonomy, kindness, empathy and well… the more the merrier. While being such a rock star, remember to stay humble, and find the balance that will keep you (and the rest of the team) out of hot messes.
BE A SOLUTION: you will sometimes need to step up and tell the team there is a better way, and lead them. At Totem we love when our team members tackle the problems they see instead of reporting them.
