• Marketing/Design/Generalist (Entry Level or Retainer, Home Improvement Sector)

Hello

On behalf of Domain Industries (Kitchen and Bath sector), Im looking for an entry level designer/generalist for a marketing role.
This will not be an easy gig...you're going to do everything...just like a startup...except the toilets work, people are nice, and the office has never been surrounded by a SWAT team. So basically, a startup without the baggage.


NOTES
I will (only) respond to folks who provide a working portfolio link. I also want a recommendation from one of your design/marketing professors.

If you're a seasoned pro, I'm open to a ~10 hour/week retainer.


REQUIREMENTS
You must understand the basics of Indesign/Web/Print/Invision/Trello/Sketch/Slack/and etc.
Basically, its the same skillset that most folks are required to knowwith an entry-level ad agency role.

***
Crucial, If you've never worked with Indesign, this gig is not for you.
From day one, you'll be working with Indesign.
***

The below three traits trump initial experience.
- Learns quickly, independently, and proactively
- A strong design aesthetic
- Positive mental attitude (and work ethic) under stress
- Humble. If you already know everything, wait a couple months before the reveal.

EXPECTATIONS (for entry level)

I would expect this person to stay a yearÂ…and move on (with relevant professional experience) to an ad agencysuch as GSD&M.
If straight out of college, you'll be overworked and (probably) overwhelmed.
Wherever frontiers you cross, you're the cosmonaut.
You'll be expected to solve problemsas they happen.
On a positive note, you'll be able to try, fail, and (eventually) succeed in a helpful/collaborative environment.

*** This gig is 95% design ***
You'll learn a pile of other stuff--as much as you can absorb. Sketch, Slack, Jupyter, Ecommerce, Email Marketing, Javascript, Fabrication basics, Statistics, Copywriting, Python, Responsive Design, and many more.
100%, a strong design aesthetic is crucial.


COMPENSATION
The pay is commensurate with an entry level agency design role. Will be a living/learning/dues-paying wage. At $40k, you must be frugal.

FLEXIBLE
Depending on the person, you might have some leeway on being remote. You must be local to the Austin areacapable of getting to Domain with a reliable vehicle.

BACKGROUND
At present, Domain is going through quite a few upgrades and growing pains. The marketing (and sales department) is being rebuiltsimultaneously.

Myself, I will be bringing this entry-level up to speed with a pre-existing (print and web) project.
As background, my past clientele has included Microsoft, Sony, X-Games, Toyota, Adidas, Pepsi, and etc. I will not be (at Domain) on a daily basis.

The other consultant is a ex-head of Fergusona billion+ dollar plumbing wholesale company.
Together, we're getting Domain up to speed.


Perhaps, you're interested in a challenge? If so, you've hit paydirt. Reach out (with a portfolio link) and good hunting.
