The Penny Hoarder is Hiring a Pinterest-Addicted Graphic Designer

Our growing team is seeking a new addition: a talented graphic designer who knows the ins and outs of social media to help us create fun, helpful visual content and bring it to our readers.

Our ideal candidate has two to three years of graphic design experience with at least some focus on social media, and is excited to bring their skills to a dynamic team working in a fast-paced newsroom environment.

Basically, you should be a total design geek whose love of creating beautiful things is matched only by your love of sharing them online — and watching them knock it out of the park, performance-wise.

And another thing? You don’t necessarily need a degree. If you’re self-taught but you provide an impressive and relevant sample, we’d love to consider you.

So if you’ve got the chops, trust me: This is your dream gig.

You’ll get to hang out on Pinterest all day, 100% guilt-free.

Even better? You’ll make a real difference in our site’s performance and reach.

Pinterest is one of our biggest traffic drivers, followed closely by Snapchat and Instagram, which you’ll also work on.

And as far as compensation goes, you won’t be disappointed.

Pay is competitive and experience-based, and the benefits are first-rate. We get three weeks’ paid vacation, a corporate-matched 401(k), and full health care coverage with surprisingly awesome customer service.

You’ll be based in a St. Petersburg, Florida, office so gorgeous and well-stocked with snacks, coffee and beer that most of us can’t wait to come in on Monday. But many of our employees work from home, or somewhere more exciting, one day a week.

And the list goes on.

You’ll be eligible for a company laptop, a quarterly company-wide performance-based bonus (we’ve made the threshold every quarter so far), and a $500 referral bonus if you suggest a successful job candidate.

(Psst — put my name as your referee when you apply!)

You’ll also get a $200 annual learning stipend, so you can get even better at your already-rockstar-status skills.

Furthermore, I can (obviously) vouch for our company culture.

We’re an eclectic and enthusiastic group of smart, motivated people working in a beautiful office whose executives honestly care about our happiness — and go to great lengths to secure it.

Can’t wait to start? Here’s how to apply.

And don’t forget to check out our snazzy careers page to learn even more about why it’s amazing to work at The Penny Hoarder. Plus, you’ll get a sneak peek of our so-swank-I-can’t-believe-I-work-here office.

You’ll be asked to furnish your resume, and to create a Pinterest-optimized graphic to accompany this post.

It won’t be published — we just want to see what you can do. Think big and get creative! “Ask for forgiveness, not permission” is literally in our company handbook, so feel free to be brave.

What are you waiting for? This is one project totally worth clicking out of your permanently open Pinterest tab for.

Besides, those boards will be even more addicting when you’re paid to work on them.

Your Turn: Will you apply for our Pinterest-obsessed graphic designer position?
