Job Description

Dapper Labs, the creator of NBA Top Shot, is looking to hire a full-time Art Director to join the NFL, in-house creative team.

The Creative team at Dapper Labs is a multi-disciplinary group with specialisms spanning marketing, illustration, graphic design, and motion. We pride ourselves on fostering a dynamic, knowledge-sharing culture, with regular design reviews and design presentations in which to participate. Our workplace is diverse, collaborative, and fast-paced. As a member of the team, you’ll have ownership over your designs, get regular feedback to help you improve, and enjoy the freedom to champion new and fresh ideas.

At Dapper, you’ll work on highly visible portfolio pieces, collaborate with team members across a multitude of disciplines, and defy the limits of what audiences can expect from our products each day.

About the role:

  • Engage the next generation of NFL fans with compelling visuals, working from concept through execution to create NFL caliber assets
  • Partner with Marketing to run experimental campaigns that deliver data-driven results to support the growth of our user base
  • Leverage fandom to produce social media content that is appropriate for each channel and connects with fans
  • Join an experienced Creative team and work directly with Top Shot’s Head of Creative, Denise Schwenck, on campaigns/creative, while reporting to Dapper Labs’ Design Director, Courtney McNeil
Our people are what makes our team special - because of that, we work hard to provide our full-time team members with perks that make their lives better by offering:

○ Flexible vacation & remote work policy - as we accomplish our goals, time off is more than a must. Most team members take between 15-20 days off per year, but we have no hard limit for our high impact individuals.
○ Diverse opportunities for learning and development - we provide resources for conferences, classes, books, and other opportunities to maintain and expand your skill set and professional growth.
○ Fitness reimbursements - stay fit with our reimbursements for health-related benefits like gym memberships, fitness apps, and personal training.
○ Top-Line equipment - in addition to receiving a company smartphone of your choice with a paid voice/data plan, every team member receives a generous equipment budget to try new gadgets, tools, and platforms.
○ Flexible parental leave policies - We understand the importance and demands of a growing family. In addition to state, provincial, and federal leave allowances, parents on the team have the flexibility to work from home or take days off when family needs to come first.
○ When we can safely return to our office, fuel up with healthy snacks and coffee, get fit with an onsite gym, recover with onsite RMT/acupuncturist, and meet the many furry friends of our dog-friendly office!

At Dapper Labs we recruit the best and foster an environment that empowers our team. That means a workplace that is diverse, inclusive, and open-minded. We welcome applicants of all backgrounds, regardless of race, colour, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability. Don’t sweat it if you don’t have everything listed in the above requirements. Our values include continuous improvement and curiosity. If you have some of these qualities and believe that this is the position that will make you excited to work every day, then we want to hear from you!
