The Hired Guns are seeking a curious, agile, and passionate Senior Digital Designer to drive business impact for a D2C startup that is completely disrupting the haircare industry.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This environmentally-conscious haircare startup is rethinking everything about their space, from how people wash and care for their hair to how hairdressers retail products to their clients. Their revenue is growing over 50% a year, and they’re redefining what it means to be an environmentally-conscious startup in 2022. That said, from an e-commerce perspective, this startup needs some serious digital design love! And that’s where you come in:
As the Senior Digital Designer, you will facilitate connection and collaboration across all aspects of the company. You’ll develop innovative concepts using sophisticated art direction, branding, and design abilities. You will be tasked with crafting roughs, mockups, and prototypes using suitable layouts, colors, fonts, and graphics, while simultaneously optimizing assets for the web. This is a collaborative role in which you’ll interface with copywriters to develop comprehensive creative solutions and assist cross-functional teams from conceptualization to implementation. You’ll interact with all levels of business partners too. If you’re looking to craft digital emails, landing pages, social media posts, and other marketing materials for a rising, breakout brand, then this is the gig for you!
Perks include a great compensation package, a meaningful equity stake, medical, dental, and vision insurance, a Citibike membership, a flexible work environment, unlimited paid time off … oh, and an 80% employee discount code that can be applied on all orders for your household so you’ll never have to buy shampoo again!
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
Are you a driven self-starter ready to work in a fast-paced startup environment? Do you live and breathe digital design? Can you easily communicate brand voice through a decentralized organization? Great, read on.
You have 5+ years of digital design experience, ideally with a consumer brand. You have proven knowledge of the fundamentals, i.e. interaction design, brand development, digital marketing, and the creative process. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is required. Expert proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) is a must. Experience working with Klaviyo is a big plus; knowledge of Sketch and Figma is welcome! You can provide clear creative direction as well as timely and helpful feedback to improve creative processes that keep work on budget and on schedule. You thrive in a team environment, but function supremely well on your own, too. You’re quick and to the point when you communicate, you’re an active listener, and you welcome radical candor from above and below. Reading this job description gives you chills because you really want to drive digital design at a rising, breakout brand with an innovative business model.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!
If you do this job right, you’ll get to drive design for a major startup’s website that will quite literally catapult your design career to the next level. Plus, you get to join an eco-friendly, sustainable startup that is shaking up a very traditional market (it’s exciting stuff). Ready to join a band of people who have a rebellious spirit and cherish anyone who is anti-authority? Yes, you are.
