Pear Deck

Do you get excited about a really gorgeous brand standards manual? Are you interested in making a difference while making great puns? Do you want to be part of a fun, growing, passionate team, working to make life better for teachers and students?

Pear Deck is looking for a graphic designer to join our marketing team. If you have an eye for detail, endless curiosity, and a strong sense of urgency, you might be just who we’re looking for.

You bring top-notch design and communication skills, enthusiasm, and tenacity; we’ll bring a work environment full of empathy, excitement, and the best coworkers ever.

  • Produce print (flyers, postcards, merch) and digital (social media, email) graphics under the Pear Deck brand. You’ll also help produce interactive templates using Google Slides and PowerPoint.
  • Make edits to the Pear Deck website using Squarespace, and build emails using Hubspot.
  • Attend brainstorms and strategy meetings, contributing ideas to help Pear Deck grow and thrive.
  • Help our team prepare for events and initiatives with a strong sense of creativity and urgency.
  • Be self-motivated, attentive to detail, and enthusiastic!

  • Knowledge of Google Suite
  • A strong portfolio of previous work
  • Excellent written communication skills and attention to detail
  • Strategic thinking skills, curiosity, and eagerness to share ideas
