What Webflow is looking for in applicants

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

We’re looking for a Sr Manager, Brand Design (Creative) to help us develop and grow the designers on the Brand Studio team. The Brand Studio team currently spans two distinct areas: Web & Creative. This role will be for our Creative pod that collaborates closely with Marketing, along with the Web function of the Brand Studio team. You believe in people management through leading by serving others, and view the success and fulfillment of your reports as your primary goal. You are excited by having the opportunity to expand upon the brand and visual acumen of Webflow’s creative presence. You will be part of the Brand Studio leadership team, reporting into the Director of Brand Design.

In this role, you will manage and lead a small team of creatives, while also having the opportunity to expand the team in 2022.

 

About the role 

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
  • Full-time

 

As a Sr Manager, Brand Design (Creative), you’ll … 

  • Guide team in the creation of brand deliverables—ie editorial & social creative, product launch creative, video art direction, brand campaigns, and so much more
  • Mentor, manage, and help recruit a world-class creative team
  • Clearly convey ideas, concepts, and the value of design to internal teams
  • Work collaboratively and independently to solve complex problems and find creative solutions to strategic objectives and requirements
  • Closely integrate with the Product and Marketing teams to ensure the spirit and vision of Webflow are accurately captured across all communication channels.
  • Provide constructive feedback and direction to both internal & external partners (agencies, studios, vendors), ensuring Webflow’s brand standards are upheld
  • Give and solicit feedback from others in order to continually raise our bar for quality

 

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as a Sr Manager, Brand Design (Creative) if you:

  • Have 8+ years as a designer or art director
  • 2+ years as a manager to designers or art directors
  • Are excited to manage a small, but growing team of designers, and Love working with those designers to help them learn and grow—and have them help you learn and grow.
  • Excel at harnessing creativity to challenge the status quo of how B2B companies go to market
  • Partnered closely with marketers, writers, designers, producers, product managers, and agencies to bring campaigns and brand experiences to our customers
  • Have a deep understanding of a designer’s career levels (from entry-level through senior roles) and how each person has different strengths. You know how to work closely with designers to help them grow and achieve success throughout their career journeys.
  • Are an excellent communicator. You know how to build strong working relationships with people throughout the company, at various levels of seniority
  • Ensure team members are creating high-quality work that delights our customers, meets company objectives, and reinforces our brand across all our channels


If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
