What's the typical workday like?
In a typical morning, you might:
Get to the office, get settled, join a morning stand-up to update everyone on progress. You grab a bagel, cream cheese, and some coffee from the snack bar. You sync up with the content editor to get a better idea of the conversion goals of the next post.
Coffee in hand, you head to your desk, open up an unpublished WordPress draft with images. The post has placeholders for images...this is where you come in. The article is about "location scouting." It takes you back to your old film school days. You read the post to understand its substance, and you take note of the images that should be added to break it up and reinforce clarity. You head to Pinterest and rapidly collect various images to source for colors, and various aesthetic inspiration. You open Sketch and drop all the images into various artboards and label them as moodboards. You review the moodboards and settle on an approach and start creating all the assets the post needs based on the top moodboard samples. You create a featured and social image for sharing, charts, diagrams, and spin-off images for Instagram Stories.
You export the images, compress them and drop them into dropbox. This post is done...and right in time for lunch! You and the team stroll to Tender Greens on the Promenade, sharing some friendly banter about why Season 2 of Westworld was just okay.
What does StudioBinder have to offer?
Similar to companies like Google, we have a 3-month contract-to-hire approach here. Full-time. 5 days a week. In-office. After the introductory period, you'll be automatically upped to a full-time, W2 position and unlock additional benefits.
