Senior Web Designer for Leading Online Branding Agency
Looking For Fulfilling Freelance Work With An Incredible Team Of Creatives?
Why work with FPM:
Straight from our team members…
Fingerprint Marketing is comprised of true professionals, and there’s nothing like feeling at home with a team run as effectively and efficiently as they are. – Milena Hrebacka, Graphic Designer
Working with Fingerprint Marketing is fantastic, and the whole team is incredibly friendly and personable. Not only that, but they have it together! They are incredibly organized with systems and processes that they continually tweak and improve to keep things running smoothly. As a contractor, I juggle lots of projects and clients. Because they are so great at project management, I’m able to give my own project productivity a boost. – Erica Bishop, Copywriter
Fingerprint Marketing’s commitment to the client’s business is amazing! The opportunity as a team member to constantly improve and grow is extremely fulfilling. – Amy Ferree, Project Manager
We’re looking for two types of people:
- You’re wildly successful in your current career but tired of the commute, politics, and lack of ownership over your work. You want to transition into freelance work (or perhaps you already have) so you can control your time and income, but you don’t want the headache and hassle of building and filling a new business. You want to continue contributing your expertise while experiencing a richer and more balanced lifestyle.
- You used to enjoy a successful career, but you chose to leave that path at some point. You were initially attracted to the entrepreneurial lifestyle because of its freedom, flexibility, and pay raise, but you’ve been struggling to fill your business and make a steady income stream. You’re tired of the inconsistency but don’t want to give up the amazing lifestyle you sacrificed so much to create. You want to make money while making a difference in the world.
You’re looking for work with people like us:
- Conscious team who know their work matters but keep it real when it comes to balancing life and work
- Low drama, high results, and talented in our areas of expertise
- We embrace growth and excellence, and support each other on our journeys
You want a “big break” that will jumpstart your career, and you’re eager to make great money while maintaining an independent lifestyle.
