About the Role
Rocket Travel is looking for a Visual Designer to join our growing Design team. In this role, you’ll work closely with our Marketing team, helping develop the Rocket Travel brand, evolve existing brands, and develop creative for web, email, social media, presentations, and ads.
As a Visual Designer at Rocketmiles, you will:
Define and develop our brands. This individual will create, evolve and set quality standards for new and existing brands.
Partner with Marketing to develop creative for email series, social media, landing pages, ads, and presentations.
Collaborate with the larger Design team through weekly critique, 1-1 feedback, and cross-functional collaboration on projects.
Manage your own deadlines across projects. There will be short turnarounds for some projects, and longer engagements for others. You know how to manage your time and balance both.
Be scrappy. We’re a small team and often wear many hats. Some projects may not be completely defined. This individual will take a resourceful approach to what’s needed and drive results.
You have a portfolio of work showcasing a variety of creative (websites, iconography, email, print, brand, etc).
You put the customer front and center. Customers can be a traveler, a partner, or even a colleague. You ensure that work centers around solving their pain points.
You’ve worked on developing brands in the past. We’re looking for someone with 3-5 years of experience bringing brands to life and evolving them.
You seek feedback. You have a growth mindset, are comfortable soliciting thoughts from others, and are curious to learn from a spectrum of perspectives.
You balance exploration with execution. Exploration and execution are both key to building innovative experiences. You understand when it’s time to explore and when it’s time to deliver.
You’re familiar with current design tools. We use Adobe Creative Suite and Figma.
Rocket Travel is a place where you:
Work with a group of intrinsically motivated people with a track record for building successful new businesses from scratch.
Embody curiosity, community, and accountability. We live and build products by these values every day.
Own decisions and take action that can be implemented in a matter of days (or hours).
Get inspired and encouraged to vacation faster, with an annual vacation stipend.
Receive a competitive compensation package, including bonus, 401k with match, flexible vacation time, maternity and paternity benefits, health, and dental insurance.
Can work remotely. Though we have great offices in Chicago’s West Loop and in NYC’s Empire State building, we're all working remotely for the time being, and we welcome full-time remote applicants, too.
Share your passion for travel with equally adventurous teammates.
