Web / UX Designer

All Brainjolt Properties

Brainjolt is a fast-growing, completely revenue-funded new media company based out of Los Angeles that blends “engagement agency” with “viral network” to bring smile-inducing content to huge, happy audiences across the internet.

We are a small team of scrappy yet professional, hard-working learners. And we’re looking for more like-minded, entrepreneurial talent. Also, our benefits aren't half bad.

Who We’re Looking For

We are looking for a highly organized, energetic graphic designer to work with a project manager and developer to take ideas and make them happen across Brainjolt’s sites and on new initiatives.

The ideal candidate will be extremely self-motivated and eager to work as a part of multiple teams. They will find joy in doing exciting creative work and then testing that work by the results. They will be scrappy, clever, curious, hard-working and excited to improve and adapt with a small, fast-growing company.
