We’re looking for a talented Visual Designer to join our advertising design team. You’ll help keep advertising fun, persuasive, and effective (did we mention fun?) as you work alongside account managers to create eye-catching digital campaigns for tech clients. If you’re ready for a role that challenges you to go beyond pixel pushing and create new messaging platforms, we’re ready for you. Think you’re the right fit to join our team? Apply now!

    With our helpful tools, technical content, a global community of experts, and entertaining ways to blow off steam, we’ve got IT covered. And because we understand IT buyers and the businesses they represent, established brands like Microsoft, Dell, and CDW, to name a few, and the latest industry innovators including KnowBe4 and Scale Computing use our insights and technology platform to run smarter, more personalized campaigns.

    In short, we’re making IT easy – and dare we say FUN – for everyone. Best part: we’re just getting started!
