Job Description

Creative Director

Remote, United States

About Us:

Airbase is the first all-in-one spend management platform that provides companies unparalleled control and visibility into every dollar spent. Finance teams deserve a solution that eliminates the tedious work involved in managing spend and allows them to focus on being strategic partners to the rest of the business. We do that by replacing the multiple systems typically used to manage spend with a single platform that handles every workflow including expense approvals and payments (physical cards, virtual cards, ACH, check), while also automating away the bulk of spend-related accounting.

  • Create and champion a practical brand style guide to drive brand consistency across all touchpoints.
  • Develop an iterative approach to cultivate a testing culture for creative assets that drives performance.
  • Creatively explore, set trends, and push boundaries.
  • Onboard and guide the work of creative agencies and freelancers according to specialized skills required, budgets, timelines, and scope.
  • Partner with marketing stakeholders to ensure great user experiences through all marketing channels, optimized for response.
  • Partner with our product organization to ensure that we deliver a consistent brand experience from prospect to customer.
  • Plan for hiring and resourcing needs to grow our in-house team as required.

About You:
