Nathan James is looking for a Visual & Graphic Production Artist to join our team to support the Brand Marketing team’s website merchandising, social, graphic and e-interior design initiatives.
People-first company, design-first home.
We are a design-first, home furnishing company focusing on the habits of urban dwellers and first time home buyers. We pride ourselves on the best-in-class customer happiness and ensuring people can have a designer home at an honest price.
Because we are a people-first company, we understood the importance of being fully distributed from the beginning. We strive to reduce friction at work while preserving the human experience. Taking this approach helps our teammates avoid compromising who they are or their values in pursuit of a career.
ABOUT THE ROLE:
This role will join an existing team of four Brand Marketing team members in creating beautiful visual elements to showcase and communicate our products and collections. You will get clear direction and training by our senior visual artist who will help you become successful in the role.
This role is responsible for:
- Curating virtual room designs for our 3D team to execute upon using Google Slides, including collaborating with and giving feedback to our 3D team.
- Working with our product development team to utilize dielines and create templated packaging in InDesign (ability to read and understand simple dielines required).
- Utilizing Adobe Illustrator vector art to create templated instruction sheets in InDesign in collaboration with our product development team.
- Actively posting, repurposing, and creating visual assets for our social media channels (FB/IG, Youtube, Tiktok and Pinterest)
- Supporting any brand service requests (web assets, video editing, UGC curation, holiday-specific product imagery and/or retailer-specific assets)
Our current stack includes: Asana, Google Slides, Later Social Media Management, Airtable, and Adobe Creative Suite.
We appreciate that time is our most valuable resource. That’s why with everything we work toward, we try to solve for happiness. However, happiness means a lot of different things to different people. For this reason, we don't define happiness for our team. Instead, we provide the tools and support so anyone can unlock it for themselves. Some of the ways we do that is removing processes and ideologies that get in the way of doing our best work, we design benefits that support a healthy relationship with our work, and we engage with our operating values
to guide us in our work. We use these frameworks and more to build a happy and resilient organization.
We also understand working for Nathan James isn’t the only function of our lives, and we don’t expect that! We’ve found that a team member who will be happy and fulfilled as a remote team member at Nathan James is someone who values their personal life and identity outside of work. That’s why we don’t create mandatory team hangouts or events. Instead of forcing engagement, we solve for improving collaboration.
We collaborate best when we listen and learn from each other. We become stronger when we advocate new perspectives and viewpoints. We focus on what we’re solving for and what’s true, so we don’t create barriers or false expectations that distract us from our mission
. We also don’t set unreasonable working hours, deadlines, or goals. We create with calm, “slow is smooth and smooth is fast”.
We’re looking for someone that has a full range understanding and passion for design with a background in graphic design (web/digital) and e-commerce photography. Expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator) is required.
Having an interior design ‘eye’ is required for this role as you will be designing virtual rooms.
Being part of a remote team, outstanding communication and organization abilities, both verbal and written are required.
You should have experience or feel very comfortable with the Instagram and TikTok platforms either from a business or personal account, and have a knack for short-form copywriting.
Although experience with Later or any other social media posting tools and basic video editing (cropping, trimming, and adding audio) experience is not required, it’s a bonus if you have experience.
We create a lot of our graphics in Adobe XD, so experience in that program is a bonus, but not required.
We utilize Asana for project management, so experience using Asana is a bonus, but not required.
For this role we do require that your normal workday has at least 4 hours overlap with both PST & EST workday without impinging on your personal/family life.
This is a remote role, since we are a remote company! You’re free to work where you work best. Effective writing, self-discipline, and comfort with open communication is especially critical in a remote environment.
BENEFITS & PERKS:
are all aimed at supporting a life well lived both at work and away from work.
With these benefits, we want and expect you to take vacations, spend time with your family, be conscious of your wellness and strengthen your personal happiness.
HOW TO APPLY:
Please submit an application here that speaks directly to this position.
There are no right answers or cookie-cutter expectations. A cover letter is not required, but those that clearly demonstrate how Nathan James would be a great fit for you and how you would be a great fit for us, will be given full attention and are highly appreciated.
You’ll hear from us about advancement to a short introduction call and then on to a work sample, where you’ll get a chance to see the types of challenges you would be solving in this role.
We appreciate your consideration in having Nathan James be part of your career.
