Freedom Financial Network is a family of companies that takes a people-first approach to financial services, using technology to empower consumers to overcome debt and create a brighter financial future. The company was founded in 2002 by Brad Stroh and Andrew Housser on the belief that by staying committed to helping people, you can ensure better financial outcomes for both the customer and the business.

This is a high-impact design position that is critical for our continued business growth. You are a talented, experienced designer who doesn’t just want to make engaging creative — you want to make effective creative. You’re driven by strategy and hungry to understand how your creative choices achieve specific business goals. 

You already know how to make a display banner, Facebook  ad, and other digital advertising in your sleep. You have video editing experience, and have even pitched in with copy from time to time. You’re comfortable iterating quickly and experimenting  with many different design aesthetics, yet you understand and appreciate the value of brand consistency. 

You crave a deeper insight on who we’re trying to reach, how we can reach them, and what will engage and convert them. “What will get the user to engage with us?” is your mantra, and you’d love a job where you can spend your energy trying to answer that question.
