About Shoelace

We've all had that horrible experience where we buy a product online, and for months we keep seeing the same retargeting ad over and over again everywhere we go. Let's face it, retargeting has become incredibly annoying. As marketers prepare for the wave of digitally native consumers entering the market, we need a better approach.

At Shoelace, we believe it doesn't have to be this way. We believe that when done right, retargeting can be a memorable and engaging experience for consumers. *And* wildly profitable for brands. We call this Customer Journey Retargeting (CJR): a personalized approach to retargeting that shows the right ad to the right customer at the right time, based on where they are in the buying journey.

The Role

As the Brand Designer for Shoelace, you will become a primary driver of the visual identity of the brand by applying your unique interpretation of design to the personality of our brand. The work that you create alongside our marketing team will find its way into every end of our business, ranging from marketing resources to website to product design, as well as slidedeck pitches to our largest clients.

With your ability to both collaborate alongside key stakeholders on the team and work autonomously when needed, there will always be new opportunities for you to challenge yourself and develop your abilities as an illustrator and designer. Additionally, this is a unique opportunity to make a big splash! As a part of a startup with a growing sphere of influence, your work will be seen by thousands of merchants, thought-leaders, and investors in the direct-to-consumer space.
