Graphic Designer (All Levels)
We’re seeking Associate Designers and Designers to join our growing Creative team at Wayfair. The right candidates are skilled, meticulous, and motivated, with unique ideas about how to deliver a meaningful brand experience. They’re experts at thinking on their feet and enjoy tackling a broad range of projects, from on-site design to email campaigns, social assets, print collateral, and more. They’re also excited about playing a role in the evolution of a brand (and the fact that their work will be viewed by millions). Sound like you? Keep reading.
We have a number of positions open within the following teams:
- The Wayfair Marketing Creative team is an energetic group of designers, copywriters, illustrators, and animators who work collaboratively to bring our brand to life across all marketing channels – from email to print to display (and more!)
- The Lifestyle Creative team serves our four Lifestyle Brands, Joss & Main, AllModern, Birch Lane, and Perigold. Each site is an exciting offshoot of the main Wayfair brand – equally awesome, with its own distinct POV and product assortment.
- The Wayfair Brand Creative team brings our flagship brand to life by telling its stories and curating experiences through every facet of the customer journey and internal employee experience.
We’re on the lookout for skilled team members to join one of the exciting, diverse teams above. You’ll help us navigate consumer insights, multitask projects like a champ, and take on high-profile projects. The best part? You’ll get to hang out with some pretty cool Bostonians.
Now… What else?
What You’ll Do
- Start your morning with Starbucks, quickly reviewing emails, and prioritizing your day.
- Incorporate stakeholder feedback from the style-based email you sent for review yesterday, with one final review with your Art Director. Then, ping a Copyeditor to proofread it, slice it up, and hand-off to Email Ops.
- Head to a collab space with your Copywriter to brainstorm ideas for next month’s major shopping holiday sale, pull inspiration, develop a few concepts to present to the broader team for feedback.
- Export a few of your WIPs and meetup with the Promotions team to review upcoming creative and last week’s performance results. Then, you’ll head back to your desk and revamp some of those WIPs to incorporate the new data you’ve just received.
- Grab one of your coworkers and head to lunch at Eataly, Dig Inn, Sweet Green, Anna’s Taqueria, Stoked wood-fired pizza truck, The Bacon Truck – so many options!
- Chat about the upcoming cross-brand Creative Review meeting and decide which projects you’re most excited to present, along with what recent customer engagement highs and lows you’ve learned that another team would also benefit from knowing.
- Follow-up with the Traffic Coordinator to review recent process improvements and how they’re benefitting you and your cross-functional partnerships
- Spend a few uninterrupted hours doing what you do best – designing!
- Join a daily stand-up to review your own brand’s projects with fellow designers, copywriters, and managers.
- After wrapping up projects for the day, get a head start on organizing your priorities for the next morning before heading out for drinks with your fave coworkers!
