Junior Marketing Designer
Portland, Oregon or Remote
Designers at Treehouse have a passion for the company’s mission. Marketing Designers work on projects that position Treehouse and its brand in a way that effectively communicates the value of the product to our audience.
Treehouse designers are expected to be strong communicators and open with their process/thinking. They frequently work and collaborate alongside their immediate team and across departments. Additionally, they are open to both sharing and receiving feedback/critique with grace and use that input to continually improve their work and Treehouse.
Marketing Designers collaborate and work alongside a dedicated team of designers, developers, product marketing managers, and project managers to help vet hunches, test ideas, track data, and ship work across all parts of the company. They use a broad design skill-set to deliver the best experience possible for existing and future Treehouse students across all aspects of marketing and brand. Additionally, they work to build an understanding of who are Treehouse students are and how their ongoing needs can be met through design.
Designers work hand-in-hand with developers and should be able to design static comps and build them out in the front-end. The team is distributed so maintaining a proactive and self-motivated working style is essential. Everyone plays a role in helping leadership advance the culture of the team in a healthy and positive fashion.
