Digital Designer

Job description

In the time it takes you to read this job ad, around 200 new accounts will have signed up to Linktree.

If you read through the requirements as a checklist and haven't ticked every box, please don't rule yourself out just yet. We've seen the research that women and other people in minority groups tend to only apply when the checklist is all ticks and no crosses. So if you think you have what it takes, hit that apply button!

The role:

Designing content for Linktree isn't like other design roles. The content you currently see from us isn't what we want you to design either. We want you to level that up. Make it pop, make it sing.

We’re making huge and exciting changes to our brand and we need a designer to step in and take ownership of the look and feel. You’ll be responsible for creating the style for all design content on our blog; ensuring an editorial artistic feel, whilst maintaining consistency with the Linktree Brand. You’ll also know how to repurpose design assets for social and other digital pieces.

This role will ideally be based on the West Coast of USA, our team in the US is currently small but will grow to around 30-40 by the end of the year and once Covid allows it, we’ll have a LA office.

Our culture & benefits:

Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:

  • We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.

  • 20 days paid leave per year

  • We have a paid 18-week parental leave program that is inclusive of birth and non-birthing parents and supports the whole parenting lifecycle

  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all team members on neurodiversity, unconscious bias, and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.

  • Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.

  • All Linktree team members work either fully remote or a hybrid remote and in-office sometimes and that will continue even when COVID is behind us and our team is spread across Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, USA, Canada, Ireland and Nigeria.

  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to Headspace and Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.

  • We are proud to offer all regular full-time and part-time employees 20 hours' paid volunteering leave per calendar year.

  • All Linktree team members receive $1000 AUD towards setting up their work from home space


In this role you will:

  • Lead image production and design for Linktree blog and social accounts

  • Work with editorial, marketing, and social to present photo and design options for blog posts, social media, and other projects

  • Optimize images technically and visually

  • Complete photo research for timely stories and in-depth photo research for longer term projects like thought leadership editorial

  • Lead and execute design projects from conception to delivery, making sure they are delivered on time and stay true to the brand

What we are looking for:

  • Experience in digital design role at a brand, media company, or agency

  • Diverse art production skills across art direction, typography, layout, infographic design, user experience design

  • Deep understanding of the use of photography in design

  • Photo editing skills
