The Role

  • Interpret business requirements and oversee marketing design projects from concept to completion for on-time delivery.
  • Manage stakeholders from marketing, content, community, and product teams to convert insights into solutions that work across the company.
  • Maintain brand consistency across all marketing initiatives.
  • Maintain a holistic understanding of the end-to-end customer journey and craft compelling experiences and flows from first ad impression to customer.
  • Have a strong point of view and not be afraid to use it.


  • Minimum of 3 to 5 years experience designing for a consumer-facing company (ideally parent-focused or a subscription model).
  • Experience designing for acquisition through email campaigns, web pages, registration flows, and ads with a focus on usability and cross-browser/platform compatibility.
  • You get excited about hitting business goals through good design and love a good A/B test. 
  • Excellent writing and presentation skills (can craft fun kid/parent-friendly copy).
  • Portfolio with examples of campaigns and sites you’ve built and launched.
  • Solid visual design foundation and an eye for detail.
  • Working knowledge of Sketch, Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop, and Figma.
  • Able to own all aspects of a design process from brainstorm to pixel perfect specs.
  • Ability to clearly articulate design decisions & the problems they are solving.
  • A cool temperament under tight deadlines and the ability to adapt quickly to new processes.
  • Experience with an iterative design process: incorporating feedback, launching quickly, and testing hypotheses.
  • A collaborative team player.

Brownie Points

  • You have digital illustration skills!
  • You know enough HTML & CSS to code and deploy your own designs (emails specifically).
  • Experience building websites with a CMS (Wordpress, Instapage, Squarespace, etc).
  • Experience participating in and conducting usability studies.
  • Experience working at a startup.

Perks & Culture

  • Our warehouse office is part maker space, part video studio, part playground (we have swings!) and a fun get-down-to-business workspace in the heart of the Mission. 
  • Being part of an awesome team that keeps playful inventing at the heart of all we do!
  • Team lunch every Friday and an assortment of office snacks.
  • Monthly learning workshops (subjects are chosen and taught by us!)
  • Medical, dental, & vision insurance, and HSA/FSA and 401(K) with an abbreviated waiting period.
  • Stock options that go along with a high-growth, well-funded startup.
  • Flexible working hours and a generous vacation and sick day policy.
