Visual Designer

New York, NY
Marketing
Full-time
[We're firmly committed to building a team as diverse as our customers, and so candidates of all stripes—irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation—are encouraged to apply.]

OVERVIEW

Jetty is hiring a Junior to Mid-Level Visual Designer to join their Brand team. We’re looking for someone that gets excited about how a brand communicates from the way it looks to the way is speaks, from billboards to brochures and presentations. You save things you get in the mail, you snap pictures of your favorite ads, and you always (always) buy from the company that cares about design.

We’re a young (growing) company and when we know something works we execute to the fullest, but we’re also exploring the avenues and channels of where our brand resonates—this means learning quickly, being resourceful, and discovering the places we should double down. You’re ready to get scrappy. You don’t feel limited to a specific medium or application and you certainly don’t feel like a one-trick pony. We might shoot an ad on an iPhone one day, and work with a world-class photographer the next. We’ll take on the flashy projects like redesigning our homepage or working to define our brand guidelines, and we’ll tackle the less glamorous like production work and presentations. But you don’t flinch, because you take any task as an opportunity to explore our brand and make the mundane a moment.

At Jetty, we’re built on a foundation of design. From our founders to our investors, we know how critical it is that our brand is a differentiator. You’ll learn a lot about what moves the needle in a modern online business, you’ll be a part of (and along the ride for) the growth of a thriving company, and you’ll work with exceptional people that care as much about your personal growth as the growth of the company. We know you’re unique, and we’re determined to find you.

Think you fit the role?

ABOUT JETTY

Jetty is transforming insurance. In an industry that’s historically been riddled with jargon, high costs, and outdated technology, we believe that everyone deserves better, more affordable coverage that protects the things they love.

Jetty Renters Insurance, our core offering for consumers, can be customized for all kinds of scenarios—from nightmares like fire and theft to shattered phones, broken laptops, and even bedbugs. We also offer two additional innovative services: Jetty Deposit and Jetty Lease Guaranty. Together, they eliminate the need for renters to have a guarantor or pay a security deposit when signing a lease. This not only saves renters time and money, but it helps landlords drive occupancy, streamline operations, and manage risk.

You can find the Jetty team working in New York City, but our services are available to renters in 45 states (including D.C.). We plan on offering our services nationwide before the end of 2018. Get to know us better at www.jetty.com.
