This well-funded and heavily backed startup is forging a unique and smart way of making a difference in this big old crazy world: simplifying tasks that are just a first-class pain in the keister. Now they need the help of a talented digital designer (who also has some print chops) to work on its website and other collateral. It’s a freelance gig, but we all know what kind of magic happens when you assemble a team of smart and talented folks abuzz with a great idea and a plan in place; the long-term upside here could be considerable indeed.
Nothing particularly esoteric to unveil here — we’re talking about rolling up your sleeves and doing what you do: developing graphics and visuals, helping this outfit communicate its mission by creating an engaging design experience right across the media spectrum. The only slightly unusual aspect of the job is that it’s B2B2C work – that is, business to business to consumer — meaning that you’ll have two key audiences in mind, a business that will offer the company’s suite of products to its customers, and those end-customers themselves. So you’ll work on sales presentations, email templates, web pages, leave-behinds, brochures, and way more than it’s possible to list here (web, mobile, video, social, print). On the web side, you’ll create mockups, so your work should include a respectable UX component. As you work, of course, you’ll be in constant touch with marketing, engineering and product people to ensure brand consistency, and you’ll think of yourself as a steward of that brand, with an eye toward guiding its future look and feel.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
You’re an experienced designer with both digital and print experience under your belt, and some lovely products to show for it. At this point in your career, you’re extremely adept at understanding a brand and adjusting your aesthetic accordingly — and you’re smart about enhancing and elevating a brand without being heavy-handed. People who know your work would describe you as a pragmatist who is able to streamline processes and produce more with less. Your sharp visual and illustration skills are backed up by a solid grounding in the requisite technical knowhow.
Finally, you’re easy to get along with, you love working on small, high-energy teams, and you’re just as excited about receiving good ideas from teammates as you are about sharing your own.
Show us that you’ve done some serious ideation-to-institution, non-template, brand-intensive marketing work, because that’s the lion’s share of what this gig will call for.
This company is just getting ready to make its mark on the world; we think it’s a huge opportunity for you to make a big difference while the elevator is still on the ground floor. Oh, and did we mention that the firm is the recipient of a highly legit best-places-to-work award?
