Jobs - Graphic Designer and Photographer

Who We Are

Ski The East is a fast growing outdoor apparel brand based in Burlington, VT. We have been building the finest ski lifestyle clothing since 2005 all while shredding Volkswagen-sized moguls, neck deep powder, and rock hard ice with a smile on our faces. Our company has a casual office atmosphere and plenty of excellent microbreweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and America’s “6th Great Lake” (Lake Champlain) right out our front door. This year we’re looking to grow the Ski The East team and expand on exciting new opportunities.

We recently moved into the best office space in the state: Hula Lakeside - which houses a cafe, gym, bar, indoor gardens as well as a beach surf club and bike path mere steps away. Did we mention the beautiful Green Mountains nearby that have the deepest snow and best ski resorts in the region? 

 

Who We're Looking For

Are you an artist through both pen and pixel? Do you know the Ski The East brand and outdoor industries well? Are you able to create inspiring artwork through drawing, scanning, and digital wizardry? Can you help craft everything from eye popping emails to Instagram story slides? Can you combine creative, memorable copywriting with just the right image? Do you have an eye for shooting and editing awesome, jaw dropping photographs? Are you a master of Photoshop, Lightroom, and Illustrator? Are you able to fold clothes and creatively layout apparel that is catalog worthy? Do you drool over the beautiful simplicity of a well placed sans serif font and wince at the horrendous overuse of Papyrus? Are you a creative powerhouse itching at the chance to unleash your skills?

If you answered yes to these, live within daily commuting distance of Burlington, VT, and have a reasonably well developed sense of humor, then you just might be the right candidate for noble entry into our Wolf Pack. This job will be approximately 50% graphic design (everything from t-shirts to facebook ads) & 50% photography (fieldwork with models or skiing and studio work with apparel). The person in this position will work closely with our Video Production Manager as well as the rest of our marketing team. We are seeking a candidate that can thrive in a fast paced, multi-tasking, small company environment with our team of 8 people.
