Senior Graphic Designer

MARKETING - San Diego, California

About Smashtech

We’re on a mission to disrupt the health and wellness industry by creating and maintaining full control over our own eCommerce brands and products.

We make living a healthy lifestyle simple, but how we do it is a far better story. When we say we create brands, we mean we actually dream them up and turn them into ecommerce sensations by managing everything in house.

We do it all from research & development, manufacturing, design, branding, marketing, media, sales, and customer service, for every brand we create. It may seem like a mouthful, but we don’t want anything to slow us down, hinder our agility, or tarnish our customer experience, and the best way to do that is to do it yourself. We’re not an agency, we don’t have clients, we simply create, manage, and own everything we touch.

The world is evolving fast, and we’re in the driver’s seat. We’re one of the fastest growing companies in San Diego, and because of our amazing culture, we’re featured by Inc. Magazine as one of top 50 Best Workplaces in the country. And this is just the beginning.

We’re looking for a skilled Senior Graphic Designer like you!

Can you design something that provokes action? Are you a design chameleon who can switch mindsets, styles, and formats in the blink of an eye? Do you know your design tools like the back of your hand? If so, read on.

As a Senior Graphic Designer, you will work with a kickass content and marketing team in creating leading edge design and layouts for a variety of digital marketing projects. You’re a versatile creative who thrives in fast-paced environments and can do graphic design, packaging design, web design, photography, videography, and anything else that requires creativity. But, you also believe that great design goes beyond beauty and you constantly desire to drive a response– everything from getting someone to add something to cart, to designing packaging so arresting, people would want to display it on their shelves.

If you’re a performance oriented designer who can influence every customer interaction we have and are obsessed with every data point we collect, this might be the role for you.
