This role is with EF Education First. WayUp is partnering with EF Education First to hire top talent.

The EF Educational Tours and Explore America Creative and Marketing Team is seeking a passionate, energetic, entrepreneurial Junior Designer to join them in our Boston office.

Please note: Applications without online portfolios will not be considered.

What you'll do:

EF Education First was founded over 55 years ago on the idea that the best way to learn is to go out into the world and experience it. So everything we create for EF Tours is designed to enable educators to broaden their students’ perspectives through travel.

That manifests in the widest range of projects you’ll ever find at one job. And since we have no external agencies, we get to do it all-from 200-page catalogs to billboards, web toolkits to videos, digital campaigns to backpacks (literally down to the copy on the tags).

Who you are:

  • The heart and soul of a creative, who thrives on coming up with killer ideas and compelling designs.
  • 2+ years of multi-channel design experience on everything from print to digital to merch and beyond.
  • The brain of a strategic thinker and creative problem-solver.
  • A truly collaborative nature and an eagerness to learn
  • The ability to challenge the norm but know how, where, and when to give.
  • A finely-honed attention to detail on everything from proper file prep to press checks.
  • Expertise in the Adobe Creative Suite and a working knowledge of Adobe XD, Sketch, and InVision. Familiarity with HTML/CSS is a plus, but not required.
  • The ability to juggle multiple projects for multiple teams with overlapping deadlines.
  • An amazing online portfolio of your work. (This one’s non-negotiable.)

Why you’ll love working here:

Work in our North American headquarters where you’ll enjoy comprehensive professional development, frequent social programming and employee-runEFfinitygroups, community groups, and clubs. You can expect:

  • Paid international travel
  • Eligibility for our Workplace Flexibility Program: our pilot hybrid work model with up to two days of work-from-home flexibility work per week, after your initial onboarding
  • Robust professional growth opportunities including monthly trainings, workshops, and inspiring talks with global leaders and experts
  • Four weeks paid vacation your first year and ten paid holidays
  • 25% company match on your 401(k)
  • Excellent medical, dental, and vision coverage, along with life and disability insurance
  • Wellness benefits and a yearly fitness reimbursement
  • EF program discounts including travel, language schools, childcare, and more
  • Dependent care, healthcare, and commuter flexible spending accounts (FSAs)
  • Discounts at local venues and businesses
