We are currently seeking a Senior Art Director to join our Marketing Team in New York City. The Senior Art Director is second-in-command to the Creative Director and will assist in leading and mentoring a small but growing team of creatives while also being a strong and multi-disciplined individual contributor.

A portfolio link is required with all applications, and please be sure to verify that you meet all requirements before applying.

Who You Are

First and foremost you are a problem-solver, both as a designer and as a manager. You’re a passionate aesthete whose skills don’t fit neatly into a box. Your right brain loves creativity and design in all of its forms, while your left brain loves finding simple solutions to complex challenges in both the digital and real-world end-user experience. You are a rising star in your field, a true multidisciplinary creative who thrives on achieving tangible results both as an individual contributor and as a senior team member.

You create art for work. You create art for pleasure. You have crafted pixel-perfect user interfaces for websites and digital communications that have produced measurable results, you have used stunning typography to create small and large-format visual experiences in the real world, and you have harnessed your creative vision to direct photographers and videographers to produce world-class content.

You can navigate the Adobe Creative Suite with your eyes closed, you understand the capabilities HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and Javascript, you appreciate the difference between digital, offset, and letterpress, and you know the difference between 1080P and 4K. You aren’t above getting your hands dirty in PowerPoint when necessary.

You are a rock-solid Art Director and people manager, but you don’t stop there. You have a passion for digging deeper into new technologies and industry trends, and can offer ideas for new and creative applications of Yext’s content and thought leadership.

Who We Are

We’re a small and passionate Creative Studio within the Marketing team of a fast-paced, innovative technology company. Our challenge is the ultimate marketing challenge — marketing to marketers. We work tirelessly to improve the manner in which our content, websites, thought leadership, blogs, print materials, direct mail, social media, and video content introduce customers, prospects, partners, and talent to Yext’s products, services, and culture.

If you relish the opportunity to join that kind of team, we need to talk.
