Firespring, one of Nebraska’s fastest-growing companies, is looking for someone special to join our Lincoln team. In corporate speak, we provide an unmatched range of integrated print, creative, website and IT solutions in addition to subscription-based software and turnkey marketing tools. But nobody gets excited about corporate speak, so here’s the real scoop.

  • Located in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, we bask in the Silicon Prairie.
  • Firespring only hires passionate, ambitious people—the type that will “bring it” every day.
  • We work hard, we play harder.
  • Once a year, we shave our heads together. (An optional activity, of course.)
  • Inc. Magazine named Firespring one of the “50 Best Workplaces” in America. We like them too.  
  • We love to give back to the community. In fact, every full-time Firespringer receives a paid day off every month to volunteer for a nonprofit organization of their choice.
  • We serve nearly 8,000 brands, businesses and nonprofits in all 50 states and 11 countries across six continents. I guess you can say we get around.

That’s the skinny on who we are. Now we want to tell you about who we’re looking for.

Job Description

Ready for some new friends? Splendid! What are we looking for in an Web Designer? We could start with the laundry list of desired traits—eye for detail, creative vision and so on—but that much should be obvious to a talented designer like you. So let’s cut to the chase.

Our ideal candidate will be proficient in designing web layouts, being comfortable with conceptualizing an idea and following it through to the finished product. Web-based knowledge is the heart of this position, knowing the ins and outs of online ads, email blasts, web pages and more.

In short, prove you’re a design renaissance man (or woman), and we’ll reward you with a nice little package of salary, benefits and award-winning perks.

Plus, as mentioned in the job title, you will be working with our SBF team. Not abbreviated, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at raising funds to help find cures for childhood cancer. That’s right, we have whole team dedicated to this organization. And you will be a part of it. Pretty cool, right?
