RedEye, Chicago's go-to news source for 20- and 30-somethings, is hiring a designer for its weekly tablet edition, daily print edition and website. As a Designer for RedEye, you will conceptualize, coordinate, package, design, and when necessary, produce premium/bonus content (such as stories, photo galleries and video).
The ideal candidate has a portfolio that demonstrates great potential to grasp RedEye's dedication to creative, multimedia design that contributes to our unique storytelling. We are also looking for someone who is enthusiastic about joining a dynamic, innovative environment where deadlines are constant and the news cycle can be a few hours, a day, or several weeks. Duties will include designing for all three platforms.
RedEye is a dynamic newsroom quickly evolving into a leader in digital storytelling for the millennial generation. We are small but scrappy, a proven competitor that still remembers our roots as a media start-up. Yet we were created by, and follow the same journalistic standards as, the Chicago Tribune.
All staffers are expected to participate in social media, to generate story ideas and work collaboratively across newsroom departments. You must keep abreast of trends, current events and newsmakers in news, sports and pop culture. This position will require working nights and weekends.
Perks of this full time role:
Full health benefits, 401K, paid vacation, and discounts to area retailers, entertainment. Plus, enjoy working with a group of people who really love what they do. For a more detailed overview of benefits visit our career page at www.ctmgjobs.com.
