Junior Graphic Designer - Email Marketing

Remuneration: cost-to-company 
Location: Cape Town, Tokai
Job level: Junior
Type: Permanent
Company: Yuppiechef

Yuppiechef is looking for an efficient and methodical Junior Email Designer to be responsible for creating our impactful and sales-driving daily marketing newsletters. If you’re someone who’s obsessive about accuracy, hates a typo, and loves the reward of seeing your design work drive results every day, then we want to hear from you.
Our team started as two good friends and only 32 products in a lounge in Cape Town, and now there are nearly 200 of us who help make Yuppiechef South Africa's premier kitchen and homeware store. We're selling 8,000 curated products from 700 leading international and local brands, and we're growing faster than ever.
We see ourselves as helping people find more moments of joy in their homes, through products that make daily life more delicious, more comfortable, more innovative and more beautiful. Our omni-channel shopping experience provides world-class service to our customers both in our stores and online — wherever it suits them best. And we need you to help us reach even more of them.
What your role looks like
Yuppiechef’s newsletters are an integral part of our marketing output - they’re an important revenue driver for the company, and are loved by the loyal customers who read them. We design and send out five mailers a week, each with a different theme and product selection, and its own creative and communication challenges. They’re built in conjunction with the marketing manager and Buying and Planning teams, to ensure we put forward campaigns with broad business support.

  • Setting out a schedule for building and designing mailers to allow time for approvals from other teams
  • Designing homepage marketing banners using an internally developed system
  • Remaining on top of trends within the industry and medium
  • Supporting the rest of our Design team, learning from them and collaborating with them on other projects as needed

Environment:
  • When you work from home, you’ll need your own stable, high-speed internet connection for this role
  • When you’re in the office, you’ll find a fully-equipped, communal kitchen where you can use the tools we sell, plus fully-stocked coffee stations where you can hone your barista skills
  • You’ll join an enthusiastic, creative and performance-driven marketing team
  • You’ll be a part of daily marketing team calls and monthly company-wide calls, where we celebrate achievements across all teams and chat about the future
