We will be looking for an excellent track record as a team, business, finance and operational manager.
Applicants must be open to collaborative direction and design efforts and be comfortable building upon the work of others and allowing others to build upon their own work (JESS3 is a collaborative environment; team members often build upon each other’s creative work).

Solution-oriented, proactive and team spirited.
Send your cover letter, resume and a link to your online portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “YOUR NAME Applying for Art Director” (example: Jane Doe Applying for Art Director).
Your cover letter should address a summary of the requirements above with examples, as well as answer these three questions with supporting examples: (1) Why do you want to work at JESS3?; (2) What sites do you go to for inspiration?; (3) What is your spirit animal and why?
