We’re currently looking to hire a Creative Director to continuously enhance our brand and marketing design capabilities. In this role, you will work closely with other designers, marketing, and product to evolve the Yieldstreet brand and marketing strategy. You should bring a solid knowledge of brand positioning and creative direction with a portfolio that shows a proven track record. We need someone that keeps a pulse on the latest trends and can execute on their ideas across channels.

What you’ll do:

  • Work cross-functionally with design and marketing to elevate creative and ensure cohesive execution across all touch points
  • Own and manage the brand strategy and voice
  • Lead marketing creative by developing campaigns that improve ROI and deliver against KPIs
  • Identify key trends and unlock new ways to engage our investors
  • Effectively manage multiple campaigns by adapting creative strategy to each channel and allocating resources for optimal ROI
  • Work hands-on to deliver various marketing and sales materials, including ads, social, etc. 
  • Be a key player on a small but effective team making a big impact 

What you’ll need:

  • 7+ years of of relevant experience leading brand and marketing creative, ideally with aspirational brands that have distinct audiences
  • Experience concepting, creating, and executing designs across various channels 
  • Keen ability to weave brand principles across touchpoints
  • The ability to craft a compelling story to communicate a meaningful and clear brand message
  • Experience leading multiple projects simultaneously while collaborating with designers, marketing, and business leadership
  • Proven ability to gain alignment from stakeholders by articulating and explaining your recommendations and plans 
  • Ability to illustrate how you incorporate various forms of research into your process and translate findings into meaningful deliverables 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills required. The ability to draft some creative copy is preferred.

How Yieldstreet is Making a Difference: "These Types of Opportunities Didn't Exist Before"
Watch

An Insider's view of Yieldstreet

What are some social events your company does?

My favorite part of Yieldstreet is our camaraderie. It’s refreshing to be part of a team that likes spending time together vs bolting for the door as soon as the clock strikes 5. We do group workouts, host guest speakers, do team outings, and go for dinners at popular spots like Vandal, Lavo and Nobu.

Meg

Chief of Staff

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate across functional differences (your normal departmental divisions) and geographic distances. We not only share documentation about features and strategy, but also about the best spots to grab a bite, a drink, or to catch a show! Yieldstreet folks look out for each other, so our teams in Brazil, Argentina, Malta have followed suit.

Charlie

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown tremendously in the year and a half at Yieldstreet. I started as the only Product Manager on the team, and as we've scaled, I have had the opportunity to grow the product team to six people. I was recently promoted to Director and now have a wide-ranging set of responsibilities and the capability to impact company strategy.

Glenna

Director of Product Management

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I sit amongst the team, grab lunch with the team, go to happy hours with the team and that is why I feel like I'm always in the know with the challenges and successes of the team. Being accessible doesn't have to just be scheduled and I expect that my team will / can come to me at any time or any place to address whatever needs to be addressed.

Matt

Head of Credit Underwriting

How does your team reward individual success?

I knew code wasn’t the only place I could contribute. Within a year I was involved on projects across 4 teams, was promoted to senior engineer, and now lead the mobile dev team. Last quarter I received our coveted Impala award, exemplifying that quarter’s mission: focus and blitz. My worst day at YS has been better than my best at any other job.

David

Senior Software Engineer
