Hello! Are you ready to Work from Home and transform your career?
We’re looking for a Designer to join the Marketing team at Modus Create. You will be charged with being a visual storyteller on behalf of the Modus brand. Want to help Modus tell its unique story through multi-channel marketing efforts? Then keep reading.
You are passionate about visual storytelling. You have experience developing marketing materials for online and offline channels. As our team is rapidly growing, you will be counted on to be assertive and self-directed; helping the function of marketing better define and communicate our brand and the value of our work.
We use modern tools, which means you should have experience using tools such as Jira, Trello, and HubSpot. Your day-to-day responsibilities will have you using Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, Sketch, and InVision regularly. Deep knowledge of digital platforms, especially social media, where your designs will be seen is a huge plus.
You have experience working within a Marketing organization, preferably in a technology or technology-adjacent role. You must think customer-first and be conscious of how the collateral you design will appear on platform and be received by potential customers, current customers, and Modus employees. We operate on many marketing channels, and experience with graphic design, web design, video, and visual branding are all components of this role.
Most importantly: you love learning. Modus is full of lifetime learners, so you’ll fit right in. Marketing, brand, and visual design are ever-evolving disciplines. You enjoy exploring new areas and sharing new ideas to help drive us forward. You are a self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.
Very qualified candidates will have experience in illustration, animation/motion graphics, photo retouching, 3D design, some or all of those skills. Standout candidates will also have worked with a Marketing team before, are familiar with owned digital channels, and understand how design assets are consumed in those channels. Because visual design is a constantly changing discipline, and you will be expected to be on the bleeding edge.
Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high speed internet is a must.
Things You Might Do
Modus is a fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you will get exposure to many different projects across the organization. Your core responsibilities are to create stunning visuals for our key customer-facing channels: sales presentations, social media, and email assets. These are our first and most important interaction with prospective customers and employees, and you will be the lead on making them as impactful as can be.
To further support the company, you will be asked to create promotional assets and visuals for blog posts, ebooks, posts on our digital channels. And, to create offline materials, like printed collateral, slicks, handouts, or swag for conferences. Video is also a growing medium at Modus, and you will be tasked with defining and designing within a creative direction for YouTube assets: interstitials, thumbnail images, end cards, even animated FX, if you have experience.
In addition, through close work with Modus Create’s Design Lead, you will assist in evolving the company’s brand. While delivering work that meets the highest visual standards and complies with existing brand guidelines, you will also have a powerful role in shaping the future of how the company communicates visually. As you will be the point person on external visual design for the company, you will also be responsible for collecting, categorizing, maintaining, and updating the hub of marketing materials, sales collateral, and company-branded visual assets.
Lastly, you are encouraged to bring us any cool ideas you have. For instance, last year we created branded skateboards for one of our HQ in Reston, VA. Have ideas about how to reinforce our maker mindset and commitment to craft? We’d love to hear them!
