About The Position
At Venn, we believe it shouldn’t be easier to connect with strangers across the world than neighbors around the corner. That’s why we’re the world’s only platform and experience company focused entirely on neighborhoods. Merging best-in-class digital products, trained community experts, inviting physical spaces and exclusive events, Venn promotes real-world connections between neighbors and participation in neighborhoods. Our goal is to create Belonging for Neighbors and stronger business for our Partners.

About the Job
Venn is significantly growing its Design practice and is looking to hire creatives to join a new team responsible for all Neighbor (consumer) and Partner (customer) marketing and communications. Your work will span physical, digital and human-to-human interactions, and will be a key driver of the company’s growth and success. It’ll be interesting, challenging and, most importantly, rewarding. You’re coming in at an exciting time to help define our design language and deepen Venn’s experience and identity.
In this role, you will work on content properties that champion our view of the world. Illustration, art direction, cover design, photography, social media and branding are all in-play with this role. This is a great opportunity to work with people who have shaped some of the biggest media brands in the world.
Your work will vary widely, from big, ambitious, never-been-tried-before projects to small, operational design tasks. But all of it will be consumer-facing, celebrating the human stories and local details that shape our product and brand. Your thinking and work will come to life immediately and you’ll have the satisfaction of seeing your work in markets around the world. No matter the task, no matter the audience, you must approach them all with the same level of excitement, focus and commitment to getting it right. Above all, we’re looking for people who can think broadly, make precisely and are hungry to learn.
