Creative Director – USA
We’re seeking an awesomely talented Creative Director to join our Republic Wireless Marketing Team. Do you want your work to make a major dent in the world? Are you passionate about brands that take a stand and have a point of view? Have you ever wanted to be a part of a team on a mission to change an industry? If you answered yes to the above, then our Creative Director position may just give you the career opportunity of a lifetime.
Here at Republic, we think that staying in touch with the people who matter to you shouldn’t have to cost a lot. That’s why we give our members the ability to make calls and texts over cheap and plentiful WiFi networks in addition to a nationwide cellular network. In doing so, we offer the most affordable rates in wireless (as low as $5/month) and save consumers hundreds per year. Entrepreneur Magazine named us the “Disrupter of the Year” and CNET has called our technology “a game changer”. Yeah, we’ve got some mojo but it’s time to go next level with our brand design.
That’s where you will come into play. As our Creative Director you’ll have the chance to help us develop and maintain a consistent brand identity that is true to our vision and compelling to consumers. You will be responsible for crafting our visual language, maintaining the design of our web-site, developing BIG IDEA creative executions across web, social, email, & retail that propel us forward, and leading a team of in-house and freelance designers. You will report directly to our VP of Branding & Advertising and will work alongside a passionate group of marketers to help solve complex business problems in simple, consumer-friendly ways.
