GoingVC Graphic Design Associate

GoingVC is a professional development program aimed at helping its members take the next steps in their venture capital careers.

The 16-week core program, followed by a lifetime alumni membership, offers participants a multitude of opportunities to build and fortify their understanding of venture capital, as well as chances to grow their venture capital networks, and gain legitimate work experience in the field. 

We started the program because – having come from venture capital backgrounds ourselves – we experienced first-hand how challenging and competitive of an industry it is to break into, and we wanted to be a resource for others as they attempted to navigate their own paths into the business.

The Role

GoingVC is hiring a part-time, remote Graphic Design Associate to join its rapidly expanding team. The individual hired for the role will be primarily tasked with driving the branding and UX design for GoingVC’s website, educational platform, and content/marketing materials. This is a part-strategic, part-execution role as you will not only be required to communicate your ideas to the GoingVC leadership and generate consensus but also implement the agreed changes.

Specific Responsibilities May  Include: 

  • Own and develop the GoingVC brand including logos, member-facing materials, and marketing materials
  • Work with GVC leadership and relevant stakeholders to design and style GoingVC website and associated media 
  • Develop UX and UI concepts and communicate to GoingVC Leadership; generate consensus around proposed changes
  • Develop a data-driven approach to the design process, including talking with users about design, user experience, and synthesizing feedback into actionable takeaways
  • Formulate and articulate GoingVC’s value propositions in order to create a consistent message across GoingVC’s website and social media accounts and internal documents
  • Designing, creating, and maintaining web content
  • Assist in determining the optimal platforms for website, marketing materials, social media, etc.

** Note **

GoingVC is in the midst of a period of rapid growth, and thus, as with any startup, this role and its responsibilities are likely to shift and/or expand over time.
