Why this role?

  • Have a massive impact on the company. Even though we're growing fast, we're still a small team, and your contribution to design will be noticed right away. Your own unique style will inform how we design our products and packaging for years to come.
  • Develop industry knowledge about product creation. This role doesn't only stretch your design skills to the limit, it also challenges you to think about how others view your design in order to bring it to life through a physical product. Learn how plush toys, figures, apparel, and other products are made.
  • Join us at an epic time. We're a profitable company and we've created over 500 unique product designs. We are planning to create over 2000 this year. This is the time to experience exponential personal and career growth.

About This Role:

  • Interpret how real people should look like as physical products available in our catalog while staying on brand.
  • Constantly learn from our creator feedback and out in house designer feedback in order to cultivate better design practices.

  • You're a bit of a perfectionist. You want designs to come out just right. Even when the whole team tells you something looks great, you're figuring out ways to improve.
  • Bonus: you're funny and can get it on with internet lingo. That always helps in the creator industry.
