THE ROLE: Graphic Design Manager

We’re looking for…

A talented hands-on Graphic Design leader with a fantastic portfolio of digital consumer-focused work and the experience (and desire) to lead an amazing team of designers. You have an impeccable taste level (possibly coming from your background in fashion or luxury brands), mastery of typography, layout, color, and image-use. You understand what motivates Creative teams and you’re excited to apply your ideas towards building a great consumer-facing brand.

Responsibilities:

  • Serve as a positive, solution-focused model of creative and collaborative excellence; Provide design feedback, professional mentorship, and overall guidance to your talented team of designers.
  • Create design systems, produce assets, provide feedback and direction, plan creative tests, and evolve each of those areas quickly as you gain more knowledge of performance-driving factors and customer expectations
  • Think big. We do a lot but we can always do more. You should be ready to propose big ideas: the great project we haven’t started, the new twist on an already strong idea, and the biggest version of the things we’re already doing well.
  • Know digital, know ecommerce: not just how, but why. We’re a digital-first team, so come armed with the technical skills to do the work well—but more importantly, bring the ideas and passion for producing work that will attract the next-generation of shoppers to our brands.
  • Keep learning and teaching. You’ll be working on a quickly-moving team that’s focused on leading and innovating in a fast-paced industry. It’s critical to keep yourself up to date on what’s happening out in the market, on social, in fashion, and within the design world—especially where they all overlap! Always learn more and share what you know.
  • Brainstorm, develop, maintain and innovate the design direction, standards, templates and visual content of our brands.
  • Be organized: Develop and maintain requirements, documentation and processes for all Digital projects.
  • Ignore barriers: Work collaboratively and constructively to succeed on each project with all of our partners and associates including Art Directors, Merchants and Buyers, UX Designers, Project Managers, Copywriters, etc.
  • Work smart, fast: Develop designs in a very fast-paced environment without compromising quality
  • Improve yourself, improve others: Receive and give constructive feedback on each project

 This position requires:

  • Design chops and a strong portfolio - we're looking for someone with a passion for, and mastery of, design in the digital and social space, a love of typography, color, an eye for fashion and product photography
  • Great understanding of current design tools (especially the Adobe CC suite), trends, and digital marketing best practices
  • Strong self-motivation and drive to succeed
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Ability to manage and meet deadlines
  • Ability to build a team by leading and mentoring other Designers
  • Excellent collaboration, communication and interpersonal skills
  • Strong skills with the entire Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects), and at least a basic understanding of CSS/HTML. Experience with motion design, prototyping and wireframing, and even coding is valuable.
  • 3+ years of relevant work experience as a designer in an agency or in-house creative group. Ecom, luxury, and fashion category experience is great, print experience is a bonus.
  • Desire to learn new things and keep abreast of the world of fashion, style, design, retailing, social media and ecommerce
  • BFA in Graphic Design with educational training in typography

We can’t wait to hear from you, so please submit your resume and portfolio for consideration.

Submissions without portfolios will not be considered.

An Insider's view of Rue Gilt Groupe

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I really appreciate Rue Gilt Groupe’s work-life balance. Our marketing team norms include limiting lunchtime meetings and after-hours emails, so there’s a distinction between work and personal time. Additionally, RGG’s flexible time-off policy and Summer Fridays mean Associates can take vacation, sick, and personal days as they want or need to.

Cade

Senior Analyst, Digital Marketing

What projects are you most excited about?

As a new Rue Gilt Groupe team member, I am really excited to partner with associates and business leaders to take Rue Gilt Groupe's DEI initiatives to the next level!

Dante

Director, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Three promotions & six years later, I went from a UX Product Designer to a Group Product Manager building personalization products as part of the Data Science team. Going from Design to Data Science is not a typical path, it took hard work, but the genuine & consistent support from cross-functional leaders opened the doors to new opportunities.

Joelle

Group Product Manager, Data Science

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Customer Service team is in the best position to hear what Members want from us, what we can do better and how we can continue to delight them. We listen to their feedback and share that with the rest of the company to continuously improve user experience. By putting the Member first, these insights help all of us collaborate effectively.

Maria

VP, Customer Service

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

With our business model of limited-time pop-up shops, we experience bursts of high-volume traffic multiple times a day on our websites and mobile apps. We’re making ambitious changes to our tech stack to further scale and modernize while maintaining a fun (and stable!) shopping experience for our Members. It’s a unique and exciting challenge!
