About the position

You're passionate about technology, design and people. You love making things happen. Connection with people is your jam.

Who we are

We're a team of driven product designers, engineers and writers who are great at rapid prototyping, multi-device design and teaching people how to design. We've been around since 1998, creating world-class products that hundreds of millions of people actually use. We believe Design, with a capital "D", can change the world, and we ensure it does. We need your help to foster great relationships with fans, bloggers and press. Our efforts don't go unnoticed, we get a lot of attention.

We're looking for someone with a diverse knowledge of marketing, who would be focused on our services, Foundation and University.

You'll work closely with Bryan, our Chief Instigator, who'll coach you through the next big thing.

At the end of the day, you'll connect with designers doing amazing things and share their story on Forrst. You'll go home knowing that you made a lot of things happen, helping millions of people learn something new about design. And you'll learn something new in the process, from Bryan and your fellow ZURBians, which is just one of the many perks of the job.
