We Need an Awesome Designer (Or Two!)

Our firm is growing like gangbusters and we need another graphic designer or two to add to our team.

Specifically, we need:

  • Strong designer for web - you NEED to be able to design for the web.  We’re talking wireframes, full-on designs for websites, etc.  You need to understand how to present files in a layered PSD format for our development team.
  • Strong designer for print / flat online work - this person needs to be able to mock up things like brochures, flyers, headers for websites, simple website buttons, etc.  No need to be able to prep your files for development, just simple, straightforward export for web style stuff.  The print work does need to be laid out properly for printing however.

Here’s how we work (and this doesn’t change so please only apply if you’re cool with all of the below items):

  • We bill hourly and to the minute.  Not per project.  No 1/2 hour minimums.
  • We pay designers $25-30/hour depending on ability and experience.
  • The amount of work is not guaranteed but trust me, if you want to be busy, we’ll keep you busy.
  • We pay our sub-contractors twice per month via PayPal or Interac Money Transfer (if in Canada).
  • All sub-contractors MUST sign a non-compete that applies to EXISTING clients only.  You can still market your own business outside of mine - you just can’t solicit your services directly to my clients.
  • You will be a sub-contractor so there are no taxes withheld, no health benefits, etc.
  • We work 100% virtually with our clients and our other team members so you need to be available via Skype and use Basecamp (if you don’t know it, it’s easy to learn).
  • You don’t need to be around all the time but we do need quick turnaround and great communication.
  • Client calls will sometimes be required so only apply if you’re comfortable speaking to clients as a member of our team.

So, if you’re a fantastic designer looking for a stream of really awesome projects that are diverse, creative, engaging and interesting, come and work with us!  We’re a driven and fast-moving team but we also have a lot of fun, most projects aren’t micro-managed and we promise you, you’ll never be bored.

If you fit the bill above, please send an e-mail to [email protected] with your hourly rate expectation and a link to your portfolio.  We will only contact those of you that appear to be a good fit.

Oh, and we need people to start immediately.  So bring your game face.
