Position: Graphic Designer
What: BuzzBee is seeking a Graphic Designer for print and digital projects on a long term, on-going basis. The best candidates are visual storytellers who can provide both art direction and high quality design work.
Doing and Directing- Most often the designer will be designing the actual pieces. From time to time we’ll ask the him/her to switch gears and Art Direct another designer. This would happen if the volume of work is high or if the deliverable needs a specialist (high end animation, high end UI/UX, etc.)
Versatile Skill Set- The designer needs to be able to design collateral and digital pieces. Must be able to create visual elements/graphics and diagrams to illustrate a key point to a story. The majority of the work is sales guides, lightly animated PPT, datasheets, email templates, and case studies. However, with most projects we are delivering higher level animated PPT, demos, and microsites. The designer needs to have a solid background in these and be comfortable and willing to grow their skill set in these areas if necessary.
Highly Collaborative- The ability and willingness to work collaboratively with the account team members is essential. The designer needs to be available to work onsite from time to time, to understand and help articulate the story visually.
Technology Industry Savvy- The designer needs to find the inner workings of technology interesting. Chips, storage, servers and the cloud can be challenging to understand and convey. Must follow the industry and be curious about how things work together.
Maturity- Designer must present a high level of maturity, bringing experiences from a broad range of projects and companies. We are looking for someone with around 10 years of designing and/or art directing experience. We will consider candidates with less overall experience if they have experience working with technology vendors.
Portfolio- Designer needs to have a portfolio full of designing for technology vendors. We are looking for 4-5 years minimum experience in this area.
