Graphic Designer

San Diego, California or Full-time Remote


 

CovalentCreative is an independently owned, eyecare-only, digital marketing agency that provides content, creative, and technology services for forward-thinking healthcare organizations.

Headquartered in San Diego, California, CovalentCreative is the parent company behind industry-leading brands like CovalentCareers.com and CovalentEvents.com and boasts an agile team of 20 individuals with content, marketing, design, technical, and talent acquisition expertise.

We value a consistent commitment to excellence, supporting other team members, and crushing goals every day. When everyone is stoked about what they do and where they work, we are able to build a team of A-players who are ready for anything. That's where you come in!


What is the job?

The graphic designer will be responsible for creating and organizing digital marketing and other assets for client marketing campaigns. While our organization serves the healthcare industry, we prioritize creative, fun design and our clients come to us to help them break out of the blue-on-blue palettes and stock graphics that are prevalent in most of the industry.

This position isn't about blindly churning out assets, it's about being creative, collaborating with teammates, and trying something new. It's about pitching wild ideas because the only way to be the best is to aim high! We expect the graphic designer to have a fast turn-around time for all graphics while remaining focused on larger projects and always, always innovating.

To succeed in this position, you must be:

  1. Driven. We’re a small team and every team member has an enormous impact on their co-workers. You must be hungry for excellence, eager to push the envelope, and obsessed about producing the highest-quality work possible.
  2. Meticulous and organized. You're the type of person whose filing system is neat and organized. You strive to always be organized, efficient, and you understand that brand assets should be maintained and scalable in any medium and that marketing departments have lots of stakeholders that need visibility into your progress.
  3. A lifelong learner. We are a fast growing company, and with growth comes new challenges. You will be expected to keep up with a dynamic environment and learn on the go. From animated ads to Instagram filters, we are constantly developing new techniques to keep up with the ever-changing world of digital marketing. You must be the type of person who thrives in environments where learning is an everyday thing.
