Brainstorm Creative Resources

Senior Interactive Designer
Position Location: 
Washington, DC
Position Type: 
Full-time, ideally following a temp-to-perm trial period
Position Reports To: 
Creative Director
Position Description: 

The hiring organization is also open to the possibility of making a direct hire. If you are available to potentially transition into this role through an initial consulting relationship please read below and apply for the opportunity via this job posting. If you are only interested in being considered for a direct hire, please see our website for the direct hire job announcement and then apply via the link provided in that announcement. We will review applications to both positions on a rolling basis, but we will be prioritizing applications for the temporary-to-permanent transition opportunity.

We are posting this announcement in early April 2019 with the hope of identifying someone terrific who can start as soon as possible. We are ideally hoping to fill the position no later than mid-May. The temporary/consulting assignment might continue for just a month or two, or could possibly continue for three or four months. The employer's goal is to make a full-time hire as soon as they and the incumbent candidate have determined that it's a great fit.

Qualifications: 

We are ideally seeking candidates who have demonstrable interactive design and production skills and are interested in continuing to progress as interactive designers. That said, in this creative agency environment, the range of projects you'll encounter will span the typical online AND offline marketing mix. There's a good chance you might work on any/all of the following: website designs, mobile interface designs, landing pages, social media graphics, graphic e-mails, brochures, print-oriented collateral and/or presentations. The agency's clients also reflect a typical DC mix, including everything from international, consumer-facing corporations to B2B service provides with household names; to non-profits of all sizes and even some political campaigns.

Brainstorm has supported the client organization on dozens of projects and hires since 2010. We can provide plenty of additional information regarding our experience with the client, to the most well qualified applicants.

We have qualified this role as good fit for a senior-level professional, but we would be glad to hear from talented early career or more highly experienced individuals who clearly communicate in cover letters, why they are interested in the assignment.

Other: 

HOURS / LOCATION / WORK ENVIRONMENT:
We are only interested in receiving applications and inquiries from individuals who can work:

(1) 40 dayside hours/week,
(2) on-site at the employer workplace five days/week;
(3) in the K Street corridor of NW, Washington, DC;
(4) starting no later than mid-May;
(5) for the foreseeable future.

PAY RATE & SALARY:
Based on conversations we have had with our client, Brainstorm Creative Resources has determined a temporary engagement pay rate range of $50/hour to $75/hour for an expected 40 hours of work per week, and a full-time salary range of $75K to $95K plus benefits.

It is not uncommon in temporary-to-permanent transition scenarios, for the temporary, hourly pay rate to be different than the salaried, hourly pay rate. We understand that experienced designers who accept transitional engagements, do so without the express guarantee of a potential near-term hire. Therefore temporary, hourly pay rates are often (but not always) higher than salaried, hourly pay rates for the same position. We will be glad to discuss in more detail with the most well qualified applicants.

The actual rate and/or salary offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. It will also be based on some or all of the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your portfolio, interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.

Brainstorm Creative Resources pays competitively and actively encourages our employer clients to do the same. However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay less experienced applicants at the top of the stated salary range. More experienced applicants can expect that we will make a strong, evidentiary case to our client, to pay you at the top of the range. Qualifications (Skills, experience, education): A High level of proficiency in the use of Adobe CC tools that are relevant to the work outlined above.
