Nathan James is looking for a Visual & Graphic Production Artist to join our team to support the Brand Division’s e-commerce and e-interior design initiatives.
We are a design-first, home furnishing company focusing on the habits of urban dwellers and first time home buyers. We pride ourselves on the best in class customer happiness, providing the highest possible quality products that are affordable for the majority and assembly that isn’t dreadful.
ABOUT THE ROLE
The role will report to the Chief Design Officer and you will work collaboratively with the Product Team to curate beautiful virtual room designs for our products to be displayed in. Photography is required when we launch a new wave of products. These images will be published on our retailer partner websites such as Amazon, Wayfair, Home Depot, Walmart etc. Once the room designs are completed, you will hand off the design spec to our 3D team who use 3D technology to create lifelike imagery.
During the period when photography is not required, our Brand team acts as a service provider for our Digital Marketing and Product teams. The Visual & Graphic Production Artist will work on requests which can range from website landing page assets, tear sheets, additional product photography for holiday’s, vendor instruction sheet improvements and short ‘brand-voice’ copywriting. As well as actively posting on our social media channels (currently focused on Instagram + Pinterest).
We have a rhythm to our work and a very low turnover rate — we have yet to have a single team member opt out. Your voice matters to us. We make change from fresh perspectives and appreciate new viewpoints, so you should feel comfortable speaking up about your values and goals.
We’re ready for the ongoing work that goes into building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best work of your career. Our values, workplace and our benefits are designed to support a sustainable, healthy relationship with your work. Our operating values provide the framework we use in building a healthy, resilient organization.
You can expect a mindful onboarding process with ramp-up and time to learn. You can expect a team that listens, and to be heard. You can expect to give and provide direct feedback. You can expect to work with good people. You can expect to be counted on. You can expect to do your best work and build a career here.
We’re looking for someone that has a full range understanding and passion for design with a background in graphic design (web) and e-commerce photography. Expert knowledge of Adobe Suite (Photoshop and Indesign) is required.
Having an interior design ‘eye’ is required for this role as you will be designing virtual rooms.
You will be joining a team of 3 remote designers, which will require outstanding communication and organization abilities, both verbal and written.
For this role we do require that your normal workday has at least 4 hours overlap with both PST & EST workday without impinging on your personal/family life.
This is a remote role, since we are a remote company! You’re free to work where you work best, anywhere in the world: home office, coworking space, or coffee shops. That hinges on effective writing, self-discipline, and comfort with open communication.
BENEFITS & PERKS
Our benefits are all aimed at supporting a life well lived both at work and away from work.
We’re all about reasonable working hours, sharing, ample vacation time, wellness, education, comfort, and giving back. We offer competitive salaries, for a similar role in the country you will be working from.
HOW TO APPLY
Please submit an application here that speaks directly to this position. There are no right answers or cookie-cutter expectations. A cover letter is not required, but those that clearly demonstrate how Nathan James would be a great fit for you and how you would be a great fit for us will be given full attention and are highly appreciated.
We expect to take two weeks to review all applications. You’ll hear from us about advancement to a work sample review. You’ll get a chance to see the types of challenges you would be solving in this role. Then on to an interview. Our interviews are all remote by Whereby video chat (no software needed), with your future colleagues, on your schedule.
We aim to make an offer by February with a start date in beginning of March
We appreciate your consideration of having Nathan James be part of your career.
Our open conversation starts with this post. We look forward to hearing from you.
