We have a financially healthy business, plenty of capital and big ambitions to grow our impact. We’re looking for a Growth Marketing Designer to join our growth team—someone who can translate The Information’s journalistic ethos into beautiful, simple, high-impact product and marketing designs.

Who Are You?

You are a strategic contributor to the growth team that owns a critical role in conceptualizing and executing engaging visuals across various channels and media.

You love startup environments, and relish building things from the ground up.
