About the right team member:

We’re looking for a talented creative project coordinator with experience across a variety of agency project types including branding and strategy, content production, digital design and development. 

About you: You are a process-minded individual with a passion for organizing, communicating and simplifying. You thrive in a creative environment even though you don’t consider yourself a “creative” person. (Even though, of course you are.) You are expertly organized and never hesitate to reach out to your teammates to say, “Hey, any roadblocks I can help remove?” You not only recognize opportunities for streamlining and simplifying workstreams—you seek them out. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and love being a primary point of contact. You are a master at never letting the pursuit of perfection stand in the way of something great. 

About this role: Your primary responsibility is to manage marketing project timelines, from kick-off to final delivery. You will be the ambassador for cross-functional communication, including working with business owners to determine project prioritization, scheduling, tracking deliverables, gathering feedback, managing expectations, and facilitating the delivery of completed materials. You will be responsible for understanding the objectives of each project, ensuring that directions and creative insight have been properly communicated and acted upon. 

Very importantly—although your primary objective will be managing work streams, as a member of our creative team you will work as a tireless ambassador for excellent creative work. You have an eye for great marketing and design and you’re excited to be a part of bringing it to life. 

This is a freelance, four month onsite role located in our HQ in NYC

At Betterment you will get to:

  • Execute against several work-streams in a fast-paced, dynamic environment to help our creative team deliver strategically sound, conceptually based projects
  • Have a direct impact on streamlining and defining our creative process 
  • Be an integral part of our internal creative team and the glue between our larger marketing organization. 
  • Be asked for your genuine opinions on process-improvement (not just dictated to)

You will be effective if you have:

  • 3+ years experience in a marketing-specific, design-related field at a design agency or in-house team
  • An ability to read minds. (Only sort of joking.) Communication will be your number-one skill, which will often require translating requests into something the creative team can use 
  • A sense of project scope and how long a creative project will take to complete 
  • The ability to own a sizeable part of a project without much oversight and ability to adapt to changes in direction

Bonus points if you have:

  • Proficiency in project management platforms (i.e. Asana)
  • An ability to speak multiple languages—design, business and marketing 
  • Experience with social media 
  • Experience with financial services and familiarity with the importance of partnering with our compliance team during the creative process (or another highly regulated industry)

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Schizophrenia
  • Muscular dystrophy

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Missing limbs or partially missing limbs
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair
  • Intellectual disability (previously called mental retardation)
Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
