Junior Marketing Designer

Welcome to Chicory!

The Marketing team at Chicory is seeking a Junior Marketing Designer to focus on developing the materials that help us tell our story and our clients’ stories visually. This new addition to the team will work alongside the rest of the marketing team to create pitch decks, proposals, wrap up decks, mockups, campaign creatives and other miscellaneous brand materials. Tasks will require a keen eye for great, user-friendly design, while also honing the Chicory brand and style. Currently, the position will be primarily focused on graphic design work, but could develop into more product and UX design with the right candidate.

Experience is great (we’d love to see candidates with internship or one to two years of professional experience), but more important are applicable skills, the right mindset and cultural fit. The role offers room for growth within the organization and will be tailored to the right person’s interests and strengths.
