Graphic Designer

Location: Washington DC      Department: Marketing

GetUpside is growing quickly, including a national expansion in 2019! We’re hiring a creative visual designer who’s eager to iterate based on testing and user feedback.

You’ll be the first in-house designer, which means you’ll have an opportunity to shape and lead a design team as we grow -- but not without getting your hands dirty as an individual contributor to start. You will also be a part of an upcoming rebranding effort in conjunction with an branding agency and will bring the new look and message to life in all communications.

Basically, you’re going to help us level up. Our current design suite is fine, but we need it to be great. You’ll join the GetUpside’s marketing team -- so most of your time will be spent on brand, acquisition, and engagement marketing -- but you’ll serve as a central design resource for all of GetUpside (so the occasional slide deck, t-shirt, or corporate branding request will come your way).

What will you do?

  • Work closely with consumer growth marketing and engagement marketing on digital projects including emails, in-app notifications, web assets, and more.

  • Support our merchant marketing team as they create B2B assets including presentations, one-pagers, and tradeshow booth elements.

  • Serve as a guide and art director for our agency partners, making sure the ads and other assets they produce best reflect our brand and product.

  • Ensure that visual and brand guidelines are implemented and adhered to across all design (great news: we’re working with an agency to fully refresh our brand right now!)

  • Be comfortable with a test and learn environment: develop hypotheses for how creative could be better, come up with big ideas that test those hypotheses and build off test results to best connect with our users and merchants

What do you need?

  • 5+ years graphic design experience

  • A specialty in digital design assets (email graphics, online ads, etc)

  • Experience designing and managing production for print projects from one-pagers to booth pull-ups

Bonus points:

  • Experience growing and leading a design team

  • Experience working with consumer apps

  • Experience working with tech startups
