Graphic Designer, Web

Moosejaw is the most fun outdoor retailer ever. We sell the finest gear and outerwear through moosejaw.com, our catalog, and our 10 retail shops in Michigan, Colorado, Illinois, and Missouri. At Moosejaw our goal is to make shopping as much fun as climbing in the Himalayas. Not that climbing in the freezing cold weather is fun but you know what we mean.

We're seeking a full-time Graphic Designer to add to our marketing department headquartered in Madison Heights, Michigan. Essentially the job entails graphics and design. That's how we got the job title. We were trying to think of something more creative. Like Tony Danza's Performance in Who's The Boss was Robbed of an Emmy. But my mean boss preferred Graphic Designer. Our graphic designers are responsible for producing amazing graphic designs for our online and print marketing pieces. We look for consistency with the Moosejaw Madness culture, and brand positioning with the overarching goal of connecting with customers in a holistic way, fostering loyalty and expanding our customer base. That's just a fancy way of saying that our graphic designers totally rock at being creative visionaries. If you haven't picked up on it already it's a must to have a strong affinity for the Moosejaw brand, Love the Madness and embrace the Moosejaw culture. Also this is an in-house position and working remotely isn't an option. Sorry for being so mean about it.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Conceptualizing and designing print media including catalogs, direct mail and retail signage
  • Creating graphical images for use in emails and on web pages
  • Working with key stakeholders to discuss a shared vision and creating a compelling digital experience and cohesive graphic message

Things we'd like you to bring to the table:

  • 1+ years of web and/or user experience design is required
  • Experience creating wireframes and visual design components is required

  • HTML experience is a plus, but not required
  • Understanding of current technologies and a strong commitment to keeping up with design techniques and technology is required
  • Strong typographic skills are a must. Language visibility is huge. Invisibility is only important for superheroes. Sorry for wasting your time on the last three sentences of this bullet point.

  • Experience with Basecamp project management software is a plus
  • Knowledge of outdoor apparel and equipment is a plus
  • Must be highly creative and possess an artistic and design sensibility

  • Ability to work well with a wide range of disciplines and personalities. Especially the super amazing personalities like mine.
  • Must be extremely self-motivated, entrepreneurial, and innovative. Must be able to maintain a high degree of flexibility, adapt quickly to changing business requirements and be able to thrive amidst chaos.
  • Must enjoy a team based, collaborative culture where open communication, prudent risk taking and idea generation from all levels are encouraged and rewarded as part of the pursuit of corporate results.
  • Must Love the Madness and embrace the Moosejaw culture

  • Casual dress code. Very casual. Think jeans, t-shirts and flip flops. Except in the summer.
  • Coworkers who will laugh at your jokes. Even if they're just being polite.
  • Cubicle-free work environment. However, you are encouraged to build a fort around you using couch cushions, pillows and blankets from your mom's house.
  • Ping pong, a hammock lounge, dart shooting, a beer fridge and decent music. The list could go on, but I like to be all mysterious and stuff.
  • Amazing discounts on outdoor apparel, gear and Moosejaw products

Sales Associates, All Shop Locations

We're seeking sales associates for all shop locations. This job involves sales, customer service and humans. Or Homo Sapiens and stuff if you prefer to be technical. The technical part of that sentence was the word "stuff."

Moosejaw sales associates have an enthusiastic, fun and positive attitude while assisting customers with sales and product information. A good sense of humor, creative mindset and passion for customer service are needed. Like an I-love-you-so-much-I-want-to-have-a-million-babies-with-you passion for customer service. Plus outdoor gear knowledge is preferred.

How to Apply:
Apply in person at the shop of your choice or email your application to jobs@moosejaw.com. Don't forget to include which shop you wanna work at and your best self-portrait sketch using only old-school pencil. This description has a lot more hyphens than normal. JK. About the sketch thing. Not the hyphen thing.

 

Moosejaw Models Wanted

We're looking for a few female models, age 18-25, to pose gracefully in the coolest products we carry. Models will be used for in-house photo shoots at our headquarters located in Madison Heights, Michigan. This will be great exposure (and I don't mean indecent by any means) for up-and-coming models as they'll appear in our print, catalog and online material.

  • Modeling experience is preferred.
  • Must be 18 years of age or older. No ifs, ands or buts.
  • Michigan applicants only. Although we love the rest of the country, we're quite partial to Michigan. Oh yeah, and Moosejaw will not be paying for expenses to travel to our headquarters. So it'd probably save you a lot of money in gas if you live in state.

How to Apply:
Email your resume or work history, along with no more than 3 pictures, to models@moosejaw.com. We're very serious about the 3-picture limit, so if you send 4 we'll think you're not great about following directions. Sorry to be so mean.
