Novosbed Inc. is a successful and growing Edmonton e-commerce startup looking to add a creative individual to the team.

“But mattresses sound like a snooze,” you say? If you can believe it, it’s anything but. The industry is hyper-competitive and fast evolving. We need to be agile and creative to remain competitive. Are you up to the challenge? If so, keep reading.

Success has allowed us to grow and expand our marketing efforts, so we’re looking for an expert visual communicator to help turn ideas into beautiful websites, supporting graphics, email marketing, advertisements, social media graphics, and more. There will be no shortage of opportunities to flex your creative muscles.

Being an expert with tools is important, but we’re looking for more than just a Photoshop wizard. We need an individual who can establish appropriate art styles, demonstrate strong typographic skills, and understand core design and layout principles.

In addition, the ideal candidate will also have a strong grasp on basic web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. He or she will be able to think of great front-end user interactions, and make them a reality through clean, efficient code.

This role gets you involved in the key early stages of an e-commerce startup that's just taking off. Apply now and help set the direction for some of tomorrow's best-known mattress brands. Work with us in our friendly, fast-paced downtown office with quick access to river valley trails.
