Description:

In-House Creative Manager

WHO WE ARE:
We’re not marketers. We’re collaborators. We’re brand activists. We do things differently than other consumer brands because it’s more fun and quite honestly, it just works better.

We are an upcoming, yet established consumer packaged goods company in Boulder, CO and are assembling a top notch in-house marketing department. We are a talented group of professionals that like to have fun and are building an entrepreneurial culture. If you’re looking for a corporate gig where you’re just another face in the crowd, this probably isn’t the right fit for you.

THE RESPONSIBILITIES:
• Lead the development of all visual creative for our portfolio of brands. This includes:
• Packaging design
• POS development and design
• Sell sheets and sales kits
• Digital, web and social media assets
• Trade Show themes and design
• Print and OOH advertising
• Coupons, flyers, leaflets
• This is important: This position is responsible for both creative and final art production
• Constantly hunt for new and improved opportunities to engage our consumers on a deeper level
• Work with print and packaging vendors to ensure final output is consistent with original concepts
• Present creative concepts to Director of Brand Marketing as well as senior management
• Solid understanding of digital and ability to work with an in-house social media team
• Create retail marketing promotions that engage shoppers to notice our brands on shelf
• Ability to connect insights to big ideas and tactics that satisfy our business objectives
• Able to manage multiple projects simultaneously without an Account Executive or Project Manager reminding you what you need to do next

THE QUALIFICATIONS:
• Education: If you have a college degree, great. If you went to art school, that’s cool too. If you’re just really smart, even better
• Years of experience: Prefer prior consumer packaged goods experience
• Written and verbal communication: Yes, you should be able to have ability to write and talk. It is also strongly preferred that you are able to use spellcheck and be a bit of a grammar geek because your copy will be viewed by our consumers
• Be resourceful: We’re not a big company or agency and have limited resources. You should be a person that embraces the small company, start-up mentality
• Be fast: Our competitive advantage over our competition is speed to market. This is even more important in social media, so we need someone that can deliver quickly
• Collaboration: We believe great ideas can come from anyone, so you should be able to pull inspiration from anyone in the company
• Technical Skills:
• Must have:
• Master of the Adobe CS, specifically InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop
• Strong design and typography skills
• Ability to direct external creative resources like photographers and illustrators
• Bonus points:
• Photography experience
• You can modify with CSS and HTML
• You can work with a developer to build a Wordpress site/blogs
• Ability to thrive in small, do-it-yourself, entrepreneurial environment
• Availability: You can adjust your schedule to handle opportunistic social marketing situations.
• Not afraid of writing some copy every once in a while
