As we continue to build our dynamic award-winning in-house creative team, we’re looking for a designer to help us market our audio franchises. You will play an important role in concepting, developing and leading digital campaigns and marketing The Times’s world-class audio journalism, which includes “The Daily,” “Still Processing,” “Modern Love,” “The Argument,” “Sway” and “Serial,” as well as Audm, a narrated article subscription product. This designer will sit on the marketing team and report to the senior art director of audio marketing.
You’ll work with other marketing creative team members (writers and designers), but also with our colleagues in audio marketing, product and the newsroom. We are looking for candidates who have talent and depth in designing across multiple channels or multifaceted consumer-facing brand campaigns. We want a designer who loves ideas and making them come to life. It’s our hope that you will help us create concepts that inspire and excite others, and then present them effectively and enthusiastically.
We will look to you to bring unexpected, yet deeply resonant, thinking about how to market our audio journalism — how to help our readers and listeners keep up with our shows and storytelling and deepen their connection to the New York Times brand.
