Visual Designer (Contract)

United States

Company Description:

At NewsCred, our mission is to help brands tell exceptional stories that drive business results. We believe this is the future of marketing, and it can make peoples' lives better - and improve the internet, too.

The truth is, when we started NewsCred, we didn't know much about marketing. But we did know, as individuals, that we weren't satisfied with the way brands marketed to us. Fast-forward to today: We're now the world's leading content marketing company. We build software that supports marketers in content planning, creation, publishing, and analysis. We help brands speak to their audiences by providing both bespoke original content and content licensed from the world's leading publishers. Finally, as pioneers in our industry, we provide unique professional services to ensure that our customers find measurable success through content marketing.

NewsCred exists because of the simply stated but enormously difficult challenge that marketers have in publishing wonderful content that actually helps us, the individuals that they are ultimately trying to reach.
