Visual & Graphic Production Artist
Nathan James is looking for a Visual & Graphic Production Artist to join our team to support the Brand Marketing team’s website merchandising, social, graphic and e-interior design initiatives.
People-first company, design-first home.
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 and ensuring people can have a designer home at an honest price.
Because we are a people-first company, we understood the importance of being fully distributed from the beginning. We strive to reduce friction at work while preserving the human experience. Taking this approach helps our teammates avoid compromising who they are or their values in pursuit of a career.
ABOUT THE ROLE:
This role will join an existing team of four Brand Marketing team members in creating beautiful visual elements to showcase our products and collections.
The area's of responsibility are:
- Curating virtual room designs for our 3D team to execute upon using Google Slides, including collaborating with and giving feedback to our 3D team.

Our current stack includes: Asana, Google Slides, Later Social Media Management, Airtable, and Adobe Creative Suite
We appreciate that time is our most valuable resource. That’s why we try to solve for happiness. Although our happiness is mostly defined by our relationship with ourselves, as an organization our goal is to ensure we don’t negatively affect that baseline. Some of the ways we do that are, removing processes and ideologies that get in the way of doing our best work, designing benefits that support a healthy relationship with our work, and engaging with our operating values to guide us in our work. We use these frameworks and more to build a thoughtful and resilient organization.
We also understand working for Nathan James isn’t the main function of your life, and we don’t expect that! We’ve found that a team member who will be happy and fulfilled as a remote team member at Nathan James is someone who generates their social energy and identity outside of work. That’s why we don’t create mandatory team hangouts or events. We focus on how to improve collaboration, not forcing engagement.
We focus on what we’re solving for, so we don’t create barriers or expectations that distract us from our mission. We also don’t set unreasonable working hours, deadlines, or goals. We create with calm, “slow is smooth and smooth is fast”.
When you join the Nathan James team, you can expect a thorough, but mindful onboarding process with ramp-up time to learn. You can expect to give and provide direct feedback. You can expect minimal meetings. You can expect to work with smart and good people. You can expect to be counted on. Most importantly, you can expect to do the best work of your career here.
