TheLadders.com is looking for a progressive Associate Creative Director with a killer portfolio to join our design team. If you’re part artist,
part techie - we’re talking about you. You’re the rare individual who
understands how an integrated interactive experience should look - and
function. Not to mention, you have the talent and dedication to execute
it. More than just a designer, you also have the ability to concept,
produce and troubleshoot. Needless to say, a knack for multi-tasking
helps.

You’ll work on online and offline projects ranging from site design and interactive marketing campaigns to DM and collateral print work. And probably a t-shirt here and there.

For
five years, we’ve found success by delivering intelligent, engaging
design solutions. You’ll join a tight-knit group of creative geniuses
who have collaborated to deliver stand-out work for our expanding
business lines. This is a great opportunity for someone with agency
experience who’s looking to move to a smaller, thriving shop.
