Oh hey! We’re glad to see you here, because boy, do we need a pixel-creating ninja like you.
We are growing rapidly and are looking for a Designer who can plug in to our tight knit, fast-paced, fiercely-passionate-yet-fun-loving team and work on all sorts of awesome things like WordPress websites, branding, campaigns, and a heck of a lot more. But enough about us, let’s talk about you.
You might get easily bored working on the same types of projects all day. You also have this way of getting stuff done that made you everyone’s favorite person in the dreaded group projects you worked on in school, and has distinguished you as a high performer in every job you’ve held since then. While you’re passionate about your work, you can still separate yourself from it, and you thrive on feedback that helps you improve. You don’t have ego, but you do have confidence and you’re comfortable in front of a room that contains business owners and other high-level executives. You love St. Louis as much as we do…we’re in the heart of Benton Park and we love our Mexican food, Provel cheese, and craft beer.
Oh, and you can conceptualize original ideas that bring simplicity and user-friendly designs to life.
We’re not the agency for everyone, but if you said “heck yes” to yourself as you were reading the above two paragraphs, then we might be the perfect place for you. So what exactly are we looking for? Read on…

-Nimble and flexible. You can move easily between different clients and different types of projects, and you handle shifting priorities and timelines like a boss.
-Pride and joy in your craft

We’re goBRANDgo!, a St. Louis marketing agency that works with mid-market companies largely in the industrial sector.
Who makes a great goBRANDgo! employee?
Team-oriented mindset. The thought of letting your teammates down would keep you awake at night.
Inner drive to grow. Your manager never has to “crack the whip” at you. You love what you do and strive every day to do it better than the day before. You’d get upset if someone didn’t give you feedback on how you could improve. If someone isn’t pushing you, you push yourself.
Master communicator. You mindfully practice active listening and you can command a room with superior presentation skills. Your written communication is clear and concise. You know intuitively which style of communication will be most productive for what you’re trying to accomplish (email vs. phone vs. face to face).
Passionate problem solver. Creating marketing solutions that solve real problems, big or small, for real people gets you excited. Your friends think you’re kind of a nerd.
Your work gets your adrenaline flowing. You’re extremely organized and detail oriented. You like to have a lot to do and the thought of boredom at your job makes you cringe. You might have been told you have zero chill. You are comfortable working independently and flourish with minimal supervision.
You’re awesome, duh. You like to laugh (sometimes at yourself) and you’re outgoing, articulate, well informed, intelligent, and confident. If you can’t make it to a party, people are bummed because everyone will have less fun without you around.
The “Hard” Stuff…
A competitive salary and 401(k) with employer match
Medical, dental, vision, and long/short disability insurance
Unlimited paid time off, flex-time, and remote work after 6 months of employment

The “Soft” Stuff…
A fun, casual office that’s close to restaurants and coffee shops
An environment where each person has a voice and is encouraged to use it
A team of really cool people who truly love their work
A culture of celebration and recognition
A place to do the best work of your life and evolve yourself and your role into the best versions of themselves
