Do you have a great eye? Interested in design, photography and videography? Are you looking for an exciting design job at a fun media company?

We're in need of someone with a great eye looking for their big break in travel media. The Junior Designer/Video Editor will lead website and mobile-app design, assist with basic video editing using Adobe Premiere (and After Effects is a bonus) and complete everyday design requests.

In short, we create stunningly beautiful web pages, mobile applications, videos, logo treatments and much more. Here at Matador, design is critical to our success and we take our visual composition very seriously. We believe strongly that design is what sets us apart from our many competitors -- we expect you to understand that and bring that understanding to our first conversation.
