Say hello

Vert is looking for a storyteller who loves to breathe life into “flat” ideas through video and/or animation to join our Creative team as a Digital Marketing Designer. We’re looking for someone who can both capture and edit imagery-based content, has an eye for layouts, and dreams in scripts, snippets and storyboards.

In this role you will create content to suit a wide variety of clients, channels, formats, and goals. A spirit of collaboration will be necessary as you’ll be working closely with other members of our Creative team to create deliverables that are on-brand as well as creatively exciting for both the client and target audience.

Our ideal candidate is a self-starter, a killer collaborator, and an innovator at heart. We need someone who loves to come up with goal-driven creative solutions and has a growing portfolio of projects to back it up.

You must be proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and After Effects. Some knowledge of Sketch and/or Invision is a plus. Ideally, you also have 2+ years of experience (and yes, internships count) doing video production, graphic design, and/or photography work for digital marketing and advertising channels (ads, social, email, web).

This person will:

  • Expertly and efficiently edit engaging, effective, story-driven video content for a variety of audiences, channels, and clients
  • Turn creative briefs and raw footage into storyboards, rough cuts, and ultimately pixel-perfect content
  • Ideate and conceptualize creative solutions that are on-goal, on-brand, and strategically sound
  • Collaborate with other team members on a wide range of brand and performance marketing deliverables including social feed and story posts; banner, native, out-of-home, and CTV ads; web & landing page designs and content; as well as the occasional print project
  • Proactively and persuasively provide rationale for creative decisions to agency and client teams
  • Create and review/refine deck presentations
  • Demonstrate and build upon an ongoing knowledge of and interest in industry trends, pop culture, and “what’s next” on digital channels
  • Understand and uphold Vert’s core values

This person must have:

  • 2+ years of demonstrated work experience (internships count, school projects do not) in a marketing, advertising, or agency setting
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Cloud Suite with an emphasis in Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop
  • Familiarity with video editing concepts and motion graphics for social media, digital ads (banners, native, YouTube, CTV), and landing pages
  • Understanding of paid media/social media ad networks and creative best practices for them, especially vertical video-first platforms and placements like TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram Reels
  • Demonstrated skills using/creating keyframes, easing, motion graphics, animating text, writing expressions, track mattes, and other visual effects
  • Color correction/grading proficiency
  • Audio mixing experience
  • A portfolio of work showcasing a basic knowledge of design principles including color theory, typography, hierarchy, and digital proficiency
  • Ability to handle multiple projects at one time
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills
  • An unquenchable thirst for knowledge, willingness to learn, and the ability to apply new concepts in a fast-paced environment
  • Proactivity and a willingness to ask questions and seek out feedback
  • Ability to take direction and speak to the decisions behind your work
  • Bonus qualifications that are not required but would be helpful include:
    • Experience in Sketch and/or Invision
    • Illustration, copywriting, or other complementary marketing/advertising skills and experience

The salary range for this role is $46,000-60,000 per year.

If you are excited about this role but don’t have all of the qualifications, we encourage you to apply! We hire people, not resumes, and don’t want one line in a job description to prevent us from finding an awesome addition to our team.
