We’re looking to hire a highly driven and talented part-time design intern to join our team. 

OUR NEW TEAMMATE

WHY YOU’LL LOVE WORKING WITH US

    • You’ll join a diverse (gender, ethnicity), fun, senior team of experienced professionals who have worked in technology, healthcare, consumer products, and enterprise software across multiple functions (including a little design) 
    • Work closely with our Founder and CEO, a thought leader in women’s menstrual health

  • DRIVE YOUR CREATIVE VISION
    • We’re looking for you to make a real contribution to the creative vision of our company and not simply execute on our ideas (if we wanted that we would just go to 99designs!)

  • Design stunning graphic communications for print and web, including web-ready graphic design, logos, email materials, promotional items, social media graphics, infographics, other marketing materials as needed.
  • Collaborate with CEO, Head of Growth, and other team members on all aspects of your design work (you will be given incredible access to a senior team and network)
  • Learn and grow design skills in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for web and print projects
  • Contribute your own ideas; not just execute ours
  • Help tell the story of The Flex Company through beautiful visuals

REQUIREMENTS

  • 1-2 years general work experience preferably in Design or pursuing a BA or other design-related degree
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop)
  • Outstanding verbal communication skills (can clearly present ideas, respectfully voice dissenting opinions)

THE DETAILS

This will be a part-time paid internship with an opportunity for growth in the future for high-performers.
