About sweetgreen:

sweetgreen is on a mission to build healthier communities by connecting people to real food. We passionately believe that real food should be convenient and accessible to everyone. Every day in each sweetgreen, our 3,500 team members make food from scratch, using fresh ingredients and produce delivered that morning. And in our local communities, we’re committed to leaving people better than we found them. We’re in the business of feeding people, and we’re out to change what that means.

If you’re already a first-rate email coder, yet are still hungry to put new languages and executions into market (hello AMP!), this role is for you. It requires an individual with excellent HTML5/CSS3 skills, extensive email development experience, teamwork, organization/project management, enviable attention to detail, and most importantly a passion for crafting beautiful and creative experiences in the inbox. Not only will you design cutting-edge interactive emails, but you will also be responsible for assembling them in our ESP and scheduling their deployment.

    • Troubleshoot existing HTML to recommend improvements + develop methodology to organize code pieces and train the team
  • Engage in a fruitful two-way dialogue with creative/content team: translate design comps/ideas into bulletproof code to power engaging email experiences, but also let your thirst for innovative executions provide the creative team new parameters to design within
  • Showcase your development ideas via simple mock up or wireframe to explain to the team
  • Slice & convert PSD files
  • Assemble email components in ESP
  • Use Email on Acid and/or Litmus to preview & test designs among devices, browsers and mail clients; QA email proofs
  • Ensure utilization of deliverability best practices and compliance of content submitted is correct and follows brand standards, privacy, spam regulation (CAN-SPAM), web accessibility/ADA compliance, etc.
  • Create audiences within ESP segmentation tools or import targeted lists; versioning/creating control groups as necessary
  • Schedule and deploy then pull Google Analytics performance figures post campaign deployment
