Position

Graphic Designer

Start: June 29, 2020 (tentative)
Term: 12 weeks
Employment or Contract: Contract
Compensation: Commensurate with experience

At Outsource Marketing, we hire really talented people who don’t take themselves too seriously — having fun and doing kick-ass work for our clients is part of our corporate DNA.

You’ll be the jelly to our peanut butter if you are creative, have a wicked sense of humor, can take a joke (oh, there will be jokes), think the “Chicken Attack” video is brilliant, and are passionate about design.

Normally, you’d join us out in the ‘Quah in a boutique office where the snack cupboard is full and the cowbell rings when something awesome goes down. If WFH is still in effect, you’ll need a fast broadband connection, for obvious reasons.

We’re looking for that special someone…

Outsource Marketing is seeking a graphic designer to provide coverage for 12-15 weeks while one of our team members is out on parental leave. This is a contractor role, paid monthly, tentatively beginning June 29th. There may be an opportunity for additional work after the initial contract is completed.
