Creative Director

Job description

Graphite is a boutique digital marketing firm that builds scalable growth engines for consumer technology companies such as Ticketmaster, MasterClass, BetterUp, and Honey. We specialize in search engine optimization (SEO), content strategy, mobile app growth, and conversion optimization. We are a fully distributed team that is dedicated to creating an environment where you do the best work of your career.

  • Passion for exploring new trends in typography, layout, illustration, photography, and motion graphics

  • Well versed in the digital product development space by having a good understanding about best practices in UX and UI

  • Confidence in working independently at the same time as being an excellent collaborator

How we’ll help

  • Compensation - We want to work with the best people in the World and compensate accordingly
  • Vacation & Time Off - In order to be the best version of yourself, you need time to recharge. We offer flexible PTO. Take time when you need it
