Creative Director Full-Time

Location: Vancouver
Company Name: Thinkific ()
Category: Advertising / Branding, Communications, Marketing / Strategy

Are you a passionate creative with an eye for design and a knack for finding the right words? Do you understand the power of a strong brand and even stronger messaging? Can you take that vision, empower your team, and turn it into something incredible? For you, it’s not just about making things pretty, but also about making them useful and meaningful. You’re looking for a big challenge that holds big opportunities—and you’ll find that at Thinkific!

As the Creative Director, you’ll dig deep into Thinkific, extract who we really are, pull it all together, and share that unique story with the world. As a member of the marketing team, you'll work closely with a friendly, collaborative, fast-paced bunch of go-getters without egos. We strive to find the right solution above all else, and we appreciate attention to detail and a passion for beautiful experiences. Everyone here does work—you’ll not only be responsible for coming up with the high-level strategy—you'll also help execute.

Some of your typical responsibilities might look like:

  • Leading the marketing team in re-developing the Thinkific brand
  • Using your amazing storytelling skills to help the marketing team reach new clients, engage current ones, and delight everyone who experiences Thinkific
  • Working with marketing leadership to define goals, objectives, and initiatives
  • Working hands-on to create beautifully executed marketing and brand materials
  • Assisting in scoping out the timeline and requirements of design engagements
  • Establishing style guides, best practices, and values to align the entire marketing creative team
  • Acting as a mentor to other designers and ensure they have everything they need to do their best work
  • Fostering an open, collaborative, and inclusive environment for the marketing creative team

Here are a few hints that you might be the person we’re looking for (you match up with a number of these):

  • 5+ years in a creative leadership role
  • Expert level experience with branding process and brand design
  • Experience in digital design with a focus on data and conversion
  • A strong portfolio of design work that you either created yourself or directed
  • A passion for solving problems while wearing multiple hats and owning all facets of the process (research, branding exercises, messaging strategy, art direction, and hands-on design)
  • The desire to drive creative by developing an end-to-end process
  • An understanding that great experiences come from collaborative decision-making with team members from all sides of the company
  • The drive to work hands-on with the creative team, not just give direction

Why we think you’ll like working with us:

  • Be part of a collaborative, driven team focused on building best-in-class software for one of the fastest-growing companies in Vancouver
  • We offer competitive salaries, health/dental/vision benefits, and an open vacation policy
  • Our office is stocked with snacks, coffee, and the occasional Friday beer to keep you fueled
  • We're dog-friendly and have many furry friends sitting nearby, ready to be cuddled
  • Bond with your teammates at fun company events (we've done nights in Escape Rooms and a weekend in Whistler in the past)
  • We have an amazing existing team of really talented engineers, marketers, designers, customer success coaches, and other tech industry pros that want to work with you
  • Everyone has an equal opportunity to impact our product and company—we strongly value all of our people (the ones we work alongside and the ones we serve)

Are you the perfect fit? We move fast and can't wait to see what you've got.
