Firespring, one of the largest marketing communications firms in the Midwest, is looking for our next amazing human to join our team.

Our clients and partners count on us as a force in our areas of expertise to help them do more good. 

See if this position sounds like your dream job. We can’t wait to find out if it could be you.

Job Description

If you’re a designer and your soul sings for print, we’ve got heart eyes for you. You gotta be proficient in preflighting and designing print layouts, and a pro conceptualizing an idea and following it through to the finished product. Some tangible mediums you may work your magic on include direct mail layouts, brochures, brand identity materials, catalogs and signage. You should be comfortable and confident doing two kinds of work: technical print file preparation and fast-turn design projects where you get to flex some creative muscles. There is no design project too small—you consider all design work important and you can be relied on to jump in on anything with heart and creativity.

Tasks and Responsibilities

  • Prepare client files for print production so our clients’ work is right and on time.
  • Establish a track record of producing work that is well received by our clients.
  • Collaborate with team members to brainstorm solutions for our clients.
  • Manage design details, project deadlines and follow jobs through to completion. 
  • Record time spent on projects accurately.

Qualifications

  • Advanced skills in Adobe Creative Cloud (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat) on a Mac operating system to produce layouts.
  • 2- to 4-year degree in related field, or equivalent experience.
  • A design portfolio (of client or student work) that demonstrates a solid understanding of design principles, versatility and good design sense.
  • A team-focused attitude, enthusiasm for learning and thirst for experience. 

Experience

  • 2 or more years of professional design experience is preferred. 
  • Understanding of MS Office and Enfocus PitStop is a plus
  • Variable data programming software and/or USPS Mailing Regulations are a plus-plus

Compensation and Benefits

  • Salary—We recognize that our people are our greatest asset. We reward candidates who wow us by offering competitive pay.
  • Vacation—Paid holidays are a no brainer, but how does unlimited, paid vacation sound? Salaried employees of Firespring are encouraged to take what they need when it comes to time off in order to live their best and healthiest lives.
  • 401(k)—Your parents preached about the importance of saving. Now we’re helping you get it done. Firespring provides professional financial advisors who will help you make a plan and guide your investments.
  • Fun—Millions of people go to work, punch the clock from 8 to 5 and hate every moment of it. That’s not the case here. We have an indoor slide, a game room and a group of people dedicated to creating activities and fun inside and outside the office. To put it mildly, we’re serious about having fun—and it reflects in our work too. 
  • Giving back—When your employer makes it possible for you to give back to your community on the clock? Win for everyone. Every Firespring team member gets one paid day off each month to give back to the community in any way they’d like.
  • Miscellaneous Benefits—Not all benefits are about the Benjamins, baby. Some of the things you’ll enjoy while working here include unlimited soft drinks, tea and beer. And don’t worry about your duds—business-casual is the dress code here. Still looking to make your cubicle-shackled friends jealous of your new gig? Our company-wide social and recreational activities are sure to do just that.
