Banner Cover

Metric Marketing is looking for a detail-oriented individual with strong design and communication skills to join our team as a Contract Graphic Designer. The successful candidate will have a thorough understanding of branding, digital marketing, and web usability, with the ability to design websites, digital and print marketing materials, advertisements, conference and event materials, and more.

A Little About Metric Marketing

We’re a growing agency. The environment is fast-paced, and every day is different. We’re constantly brainstorming new ways to grow our business and drive results for our clients. As part of a growing agency, you’ll be given the opportunity to learn about topics outside your job role and deepen your knowledge of digital marketing as a whole.

This isn’t a corporate environment. Fueled by coffee and camaraderie—our culture is one of joy, and we are driven by making an impact in the lives of everyone we encounter. As such, we have high standards for our team and clients. Every relationship we have is built upon mutual respect, trust, and transparency. Being a good teammate means knowing when to ask for help and listening for the little details. Placing yourself on a pedestal is not rewarded here. We only progress if we’re all heading in the same direction, and we can only rise by lifting others.

We trust our team. From your first day with the Metric team, we trust you. Micromanagement does not exist here. You will be expected to take initiative, follow through on your commitments, exceed expectations, and be an all-around amazing team member. Your success or failure is up to you; your future is yours to shape.
