Entry Level Position

Design Associate for Public Interest GRFX

Do you believe the power of story, image and design can help organize a better world?

Global warming. Fracking. Politics corrupted by billionaires and Super PACs.

It's no secret: As a society, we've got some major challenges in front of us.

So how we do handle them? How do we set about addressing the biggest problems of our time and organizing a better world?

By mobilizing hundreds of thousands of people at the grassroots to take action.

That's where the Public Interest Network comes in.

We're a nationwide network of nonprofit groups dedicated to bringing people together in the fight for a greener America, a more democratic America, and a government that works for all of us, not just powerful corporations.

If this sounds slightly ambitious, that's because it is. But you're ambitious too. You've got big ideas, big dreams, and an even bigger drive to achieve them. And that's why we need you.

The job

Public Interest GRFX is the in-house communications team for the Public Interest Network. To build the people power it takes to overcome powerful special interests and fix the urgent problems we're facing as a society, we need to reach the public. And to do that, we need to tell our story in a way that connects with people—visually, emotionally, intellectually—and motivates them to join the fight for a better world.

That'll be your job. As a designer, you'll be in charge of design, artwork, layout and more for a number of organizations within the Public Interest Network.

 The requirements

You're smart.

You're great at design work.

You want to make the world a better place.

You're creative.

You're a leader.

You're accountable.
