Community Manager / Career Advisor

Hybrid
Full-time
New York

We are seeking a Community Manager / Career Advisor who is passionate about fostering the professional development of our creative community. This role is pivotal at Designity, as we deeply value the experience and growth of each Designity Creative Community member.

In this position, you will be instrumental in expanding the Designity Creative Community by vetting and onboarding new talent, developing training programs, career growth plans, and enhancing overall community engagement. You will collaborate with our team to ensure that our rigorously selected community of high-caliber creatives has access to and opportunities for exceptional work with our clients, all while advancing their careers and personal portfolios.

Designity is a subscription-based collaborative creative platform that enables creatives and businesses to collaborate more effectively through unique and innovative model. This collaborative approach has convinced both small and large companies, including Calendly, Kung Fu Tea, and Marriott Hotels, to use Designity for their design and marketing efforts instead of traditional, costly, and inefficient alternatives.

We are transforming the creative industry, moving away from outdated and ineffective marketing and design methods. Companies typically hire in-house designers, which is costly, time-consuming, skill-limiting, and requires substantial supervision. Working with traditional design and marketing agencies offers an alternative but at a high cost. Marketplaces  like Upwork and Fiverr claim to offer  a more affordable solution, but their model lacks reliability and optimization for creative services, causing frustration for businesses.

While we still operate like a startup, we are in full scale- up mode. If you are looking for a clear career growth plan, hybrid model (3 days in office required), and the opportunity to join a growing team that is disrupting the creative industry - then Designity is the place for you.‍

  • Serve as the first point of contact and subject matter expert for the Designity Creative Community, company’s offerings, and company culture.
