Culture is ephemeral. It changes constantly. But one thing stays consistently the same: culture and economies are driven by creators.
Art. Literature. Food. Film. Music. Fashion. Sports. Social movements. These empower synergies between culture and economies. Each of these categories are fueled by individual creators and collectives. Each with a unique vision for the future. Their art — whatever form it takes — is an attempt to bring that vision to life.
ConvertKit is on a mission to help these creators earn a living online using our SaaS email marketing and commerce platform. We give creators the right tools to own the relationship with their audience and monetize their fans. We’ve built a product creators love and we’re looking for a designer to join our team with enthusiasm for our mission, vision and values.
We are 100% independent, 100% remote (always, not just in 2020) and we serve a rapidly growing userbase of more than 170,000 creators. We firmly believe the creator economy is and will continue to be a driving force for positive change and independence.
