Creative Director

Job Title: Creative Director

Department: Creative Services

Reports to: Chief Operating Officer

It’s an exciting time at StudentBridge! As the entire world moves into a virtual world, StudentBridge has long set the standard for colleges and universities looking to engage and recruit prospective students through our personalized, digital experiences. 

To support our rapid growth, we are looking to hire an outstanding Creative Director who will be responsible for all aspects of StudentBridge’s outward facing identity, impacting both our own market positioning as well as the award-winning creative solutions we develop for our customers. Together, we will create meaningful interactions that leave a lasting impression, each and every time.

The right candidate will be willing to take direction, understand needs, but then think beyond the conventional to produce visually striking, high-impact creatives and campaigns that deliver the desired results. The importance of advertising and marketing will come naturally to you. The power of video and interactive digital delivery will excite you. 

A multi-faceted role, you will work closely with leadership to understand the vision and identity of the company and the solutions we develop. You will then lead a team of specialists to turn the creative inspiration into a stunning reality. 

We’re looking for an experienced manager of people, someone that can inspire others and take our creative solutions to a new level as we continue to grow - while also willing to get your hands dirty to get the work done. The ideal candidate will have a natural eye for design, incredible attention to detail, and a drive to inspire innovative ideas.

This will be a full-time position, and once our offices are open we look to welcome you to our Atlanta HQ. In the meantime, it will be predominantly remote with regular video conferences and occasional, socially distanced, in-person check-ins.
