3Q Digital is leading the disruption of the growth marketing industry by turning our clients into market leaders and household names across the B2C, B2B, ecommerce, and FinTech verticals. We're independent and values-driven, and the way we work reflects our Silicon Valley roots: we're relentless, curious, and accept no limits in driving growth for our clients and each other.
We offer full marketing services including SEM, SEO, social advertising, display, mobile, analytics, CRO, creative, and business strategy. We build and execute strategies to enable clients and our own internal teams to capitalize on opportunities, break through barriers to growth, and lead our respective fields.
We are committed to building and sustaining an environment where everyone feels psychologically safe and valued. We seek frequent, open feedback from our team and we offer company-wide training and regular, open discussions on diversity, equity, inclusion and other social issues.
As Associate Art Director, you will be responsible for helping translate the client's strategy, goals, and vision into marketing assets. You will be hands-on in the execution of creative projects-and thrive on both thinking conceptually and tackling production work, delivering files to our production artists that will make them proud. Be ready to work on everything from banners and social ads to web design, even help out on videos and rebranding projects. Your first love is design, but you are hoping to one day become a mentor to junior team members, getting a kick out of passing on new design trends, tips & tricks to your team members. You are able to work on multiple projects and competing initiatives without letting anything slip. You pride yourself in your work always being top-notch, but you're also very eager to learn more. You have good communication skills and love team collaboration. You geek out on the details. "Eagle Eyes" is your middle name, "Diligence" your last. You are highly accountable, responsive, and able to effectively and efficiently work on your own and within the team.
