General Description

At Underline, we are driven by a singular mission: to ensure the vibrancy of our nation through building intelligent community infrastructure. We work with communities across the United States to design, finance, and construct open access fiber-optic networks. We believe these networks are the essential foundation for ultra-fast access to information, a competitive market for content and services, job formation and re-skilling for workers, distributed healthcare services, new wireless solutions, and resilient modern infrastructure including responsible energy creation.

We’re looking for a collaborative designer to continue evolving our brand - delivering social media experiences, illustration, print design, and other visual collateral. The work will focus largely on developing and managing community sub-brands in addition to our corporate brand. You will report directly to the Head of Product and Design and collaborate closely with the Communications & Marketing team on specific needs and projects.

You can view some of our current brand aesthetic at Dribbble.

Come help us design the future of connectivity.
