Sweeten is a fast-growing, award-winning tech company founded by three trained architects. We're a team of super-ambitious, fun-loving people who are working to bring together the worlds of construction, design, and tech. We're creating trust and transparency in the $400B renovation industry by building the go-to marketplace for major renovations. 

We are seeking a temporary, freelance designer to work on a full-time basis for a period of 15-18 weeks, with some possibility to extend. We are looking for someone with great communication and organizational skills, attention to detail, and technical know-how that can work collaboratively with our remote startup team. 


What you’ll do:

  • Work closely with Sweeten’s creative director and other members of our growth team to support the company’s marketing initiatives.
  • Utilize brand standards, creative briefs, reference/research materials, and strategic best practices to design impactful visual solutions.
  • Support weekly content production cycles by prepping photos and graphics for blog articles and owning digital newsletter layouts. 
  • Organize and maintain digital photo and marketing asset archives.  
  • Design digital ad creative for both general contractor and renovator audiences. 
  • Aid in the development and refining of Sweeten’s new brand style guides, and help us transition our digital platform and assets from old branding to new and unified.
  • Work proactively, anticipating and solving creative problems and identifying opportunities to improve workflows as well as creative output.
  • Use Slack, JIRA, video conferencing, and email daily to communicate and collaborate with members of the team. 
  • Provide direction to photographers for project photo shoots, and assist in coordinating shoots between photographers and Sweeten renovation clients. (COVID-dependent)
  • Take care of any other, sometimes urgent, one-off design requests as-needed. 


Key Qualifications:

  • Must have a strong understanding of design principles, branding, print collateral, digital ads, web collateral, and online/e-mail marketing, with a heavy emphasis on digital design.
  • Working knowledge of production requirements and limitations when designing for responsive web experiences and digital marketing campaigns including websites, apps, emails, display ads, landing pages, and social media creative. 
  • Excellent digital file structure and asset management skills. Lots of attention to detail.
  • Ability to deliver quality design at high volume in a tight timeframe.
  • Ability to articulate ideas, and to give and receive critical feedback while working in an iterative design process. 
  • Ability to thrive in a challenging, fast-paced, remote startup environment.
  • Experience working with motion/video. 
  • Proficiency in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, and Sketch
  • Must have 3+ years of professional experience and submit a portfolio of sample work demonstrating skill in graphic and visual design.
  • This position is remote, and while it is not location-specific, eligible candidates must be available and fully dedicated to working at Sweeten on a full-time basis, M-F between 9:00AM-5:00PM ET. (Flexibility on certain days may be available for the right candidate.)
