Information Graphics Designer (Contract)
An integral part of the Global Design Team, the Information Graphics designer is responsible for visualizing complex concepts around technology, business, and advertising to consumers, brands, and the industry in general. This designer will be responsible for working with Sales teams to craft and polish presentation deck "templates" - core presentations that the sales teams use to explain the GLAM business as a whole as well as key components. The designer will also work to crystalize key concepts into powerful information graphics that can be used by PR as well as Sales & Marketing organizations to better present our products and concepts. Finally, the designer will also work with our Advertising Products group to support customized mock-ups building as needed for our Sales Teams presentations. Overall, a very comprehensive design position that provides exposure to communication graphics concepts, product UI, sales, marketing, and PR activities.
We are a Global technology company that develops consumer applications on the desktop and mobile/tablet devices to both help consumers discover content as well as help bloggers and brands distribute content in our "ecosystem." The distribution of blogger content through our apps help bloggers get discovered, while at the same time monetizing their content through advertising - all while providing unprecedented access and social discovery to consumers. This "flywheel" effect is at the core of why GLAM exists. Foodie.com represents our latest evolution of our social discovery application platform - helping thousands of bloggers promote their content and helping consumers discover the best recipes and restaurants from bloggers all over the world.
GLAM also raises the bar in advertising by creating innovative formats beyond simple "display" - these formats prioritize increased consumer-engagement by integrating blogger content and offering innovative ways for brands to reach consumers. Combine this with the technology to do hyper targeting - making the content from brands that much more relevant, creates a more integrated and useful experience for consumers. No other company promotes an "ecosystem" approach like this with the consumer's experience front & center - at the scale that GLAM works.
The Global Design Group plays a core role in defining and designing the apps and the product-ecosystem for GLAM as well as the user-experience throughout. A combination of useful "utilitarian" applications as well as editorial-based "editions" are core application platforms and apps that are all driven off a core desktop social discovery experience that allows consumers to sift through content coming from more than 5000 bloggers. Our designers also work to define and design our advertising products to integrate rather than interrupt the consuming experience.
If you feel passion for the opportunities to create amazingly fun and useful products in an ecosystem like this; and are excited to create apps and application interfaces - innovating constantly; if you love the world of publishing, content, and media, and you see opportunity redefine how content is created, promoted, and distributed, you should talk to us. We are designing the future of content publishing and social discovery in an age where tablets and smart phones are the new desktop. Join us to build the future.
While GLAM has been in business for 10 years, the products team (which includes Design) is run like a lean startup. We have the strength of an established company, yet, the agility and personality you can usually only find in new blood, fresh out of school. Collectively, we are an innovative and spirited bunch that is passionate about making fantastic products that people love to use. Coming out of both well-known Fortune 500 companies like Apple, Adobe, and Microsoft, as well as newcomers like Groupon. We check our egos at the door and are committed to innovating and iterating in order to make the best products. All the while, enjoying the world of lifestyle content and brands we work in, along the way.
