JOB DESCRIPTION
We’re looking for someone who combines technical knowhow with a passion for branding and design. We need a pro communicator with a tough skin — you will need to adopt and build upon an established brand’s visual language, communicate your ideas without ego. From mock-up to launched page, you will create and implement on-brand webpages that serve our marketing objectives including providing client value, reinforcing our place as the industry leader, and increased SE visibility. On top of direct programming in our proprietary backend, you may be asked to work within several additional platforms, including Squarespace, Unbounce, and Magento. If you have experience in these or similar, please go into detail. We’d love for you to speak to times when you had to work within a backend system designed by someone else. What is your process in navigating problems and making changes within new systems?
