Company Description:
Interact is a Boulder-based strategic branding and packaging design agency focused on the food and beverage industry. We partner with spirited food and beverage brands to sell passion, not just product, by crafting insights from consumer behavior, industry innovation and company culture. We hang out with a diverse client roster from bright-eyed startups to courageous industry vets.

We’re a tightknit, rowdy group who laugh all day in an open workspace with loud music. As a small, fast-paced agency that thrives on hustle and passion, we’ll be frank: If you can’t handle the heat, we won’t be the right kitchen for you.

What you will do:
As the Senior Designer at Interact you will drive the entire design process from concepting to production and everything in between. You can get your hands dirty and work on package design projects but you also have the ability to be a strategic leader in the department and with our clients. You must have a passion for collaboration and mentorship. You will be a catalyst to challenge the thinking of our team and our clients, as a true partner in creating provocative work.

Proficiencies: Adobe Suite, Mac OS, Microsoft Office, Print Production/Mechanical Artwork Preparation
