Associate Visual Designer

| Chicago

 

Are you looking for a way to challenge yourself and build your design skills? Do you love taking ownership of your own objectives? This might be the role for you.

 

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

 

The design team is a large group of in-house creatives and creative ops professionals who support all the branded creative marketing and merchandising needs for Groupon globally. We work to create a brand people get excited about, for both customers and our clients across the company, through visual design, content marketing, and photos and videos from our in-house studio.

 

As an Associate Visual Designer, you will focus on supporting other designers and Art Directors on concepting and executing visually engaging and functional digital assets for Groupon’s marketing and merchandising businesses. As an Associate Visual Designers, you are expected to be strong at synthesizing information, troubleshooting and problem solving, and ultimately providing a high-level of execution. In this role, you will gain an understanding of designing for the brand’s purpose, business goals, and customer needs. The Associate Visual Designer will report to the Art Director.

 

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a significant impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Apply established look, feel, and size for various brand, marketing, and merchandising asset campaigns across web, touch, and mobile

  • Work within brand guidelines to build layouts that reinforce the Groupon brand style and voice through its visual touchpoints

  • In addition to standard asset types, design logos, icons, illustrations, infographics, and data visualizations

  • Work with a global asset library and workflow system to source images and follow a production schedule

  • Juggle multiple projects while effectively managing timelines and expectations

  • Brainstorm and develop clear ideas, concepts, and designs from inception through production

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including other designers and copywriters, product managers, marketing managers, and merchandising business lines to create a simple, branded UX

  • Translate client business requirements, user needs, and technical requirements into designs that are visually enticing, easy to use, and emotionally engaging

  • Stay in the loop and on top of the latest standards, changes, trends in visual design field

 

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in graphic design or related field required

  • A solid foundation in typography, layout, and design

  • Good eye for photography and be able to select photography for campaigns

  • Excellent visual, written, and verbal communication skills, along with presentation and negotiation skills

  • A penchant for details and organization, including the ability to prioritize tasks, communicate progress, and meet deadlines

  • ​The ability to effectively take direction and work both collaboratively and autonomously

  • Extensive knowledge of and experience using Adobe Creative Cloud, especially Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator; additional experience with Sketch and HTML preferred

  • Relevant design experience for websites and ecommerce digital advertising preferred

 

For your application:

 

When applying, please include your resume, cover letter, and portfolio. If we set up an interview, you’ll present a minimum of 3 relevant projects. You’ll provide insight into your design process and include any materials you have a deep passion for. We want to meet the whole person, not just your professional work!

Groupon provides a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events. At the same time, we are providing advertising options and tools that merchants can use to grow and manage their businesses. Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. Community matters to us on an internal, local and global scale—it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.

An Insider's view of Groupon

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

Alicia

Program Manager, Employee & Community Engagement

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
