Essence of the Role

Catchafire is looking for an Associate Graphic Designer to join our in-house Design team and use their skills for good by visually communicating our brand across channels.

Catchafire is a web based platform that matches skilled professionals who want to volunteer their skills with Nonprofits that need help. This is an exciting time for our company as we strive to meet our next phase of growth—helping as many non-profits as possible as well as hosting our first full-scale conference.

This role will cover a spectrum of design responsibilities ranging from print marketing and brand work to digital production and presentation design.
