We're Brigit, a financial health app for the everyday American. By using cash flow data to automate finances, not only do we help people today, but also empower them to start saving for tomorrow and permanently transform their financial future. Brigit analyzes data from billions of individual bank transactions and formulates a deep understanding of each member’s cash-flow mismatches and spending habits. Using that data, we're able to send no-fee predictive advances and help millions of Americans avoid late payment fees, predatory overdraft fees, and interest rates. Our initial product is focused on disrupting the predatory $44 Billion payday loan and overdraft market and our future products will continue to empower and improve the lives of over 100M underserved Americans!
Brigit is hiring an experienced Creative Director to join us as a leader on our growing Marketing team. As Creative Director, you will build and oversee the creative strategy, lead execution for the brand and provide creative vision that will help build our brand into the type that leaves a lasting impression with its members across every aspect of the customer journey.

  •  Bring Brigit’s brand to life by leading and overseeing all creative development including photography, videography, design and copy across all channels
  • Push the creative envelope for Brigit by developing creative strategies that integrate research, audience insights, cultural insights, and creative insights into an actionable plan for the development of industry-leading, highly effective consumer campaigns
  • Work with both external partners and internal stakeholders on brand creative asset ideation and execution to ensure Brigit maintains a consistent visual identity, tone and voice across all platforms, products and consumer touch points

  • Strong analytical ability, conflict resolution and negotiation skills
  • Appetite for problem solving and a love for fast-paced, constantly-changing environments

An Insider's view of Brigit

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is unique. However, it is not simply the walls of the office that make it so. Every Brigiteer helps construct a fantastic workplace. Whether it be a co-founder taking time to teach us how to make an espresso, or collaborating across teams to add that special touch to our app. We see each other not just as coworkers, but as a family.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

You can write anywhere in the office. Walls, desks, windows…..really wherever you come up with an idea, there's always a marker close by to jot your best ideas down. It’s a very collaborative group and we work best when we can express ourselves visually.

Shruti

Growth Strategist
