VAWAA (Vacation With An Artist) is a first of its kind curated marketplace to book one-on-one, 4-7 day immersive apprenticeships with master artists and craftspeople around the world - from calligraphy in Japan to bespoke shoemaking in Czech Republic to street art in Buenos Aires, and everything in between.
Our mission is to create the best platform for immersive experiences that help people disconnect from their hyper digital lives, immerse in new cultures and learn new skills.
We've been featured in WSJ, Forbes, Travel & Leisure, Artsy, VICE and recently won the prestigious Webby Award for Best in Travel Websites. It is an exciting time and we are growing the team to realize the big vision.
We are looking to hire our first full time designer who will work in direct collaboration with our founder/ CEO (ex-creative director, R/GA) to lead all design related work at VAWAA. The person who will strive in this role is highly strategic, detail-oriented, and multi-skilled, bringing a deep understanding across visual design, user experience, user interface design and branding. Start date ASAP. Candidate must be in the US. This is a high impact/ high growth role in an early stage growing startup.
YOU CAN EXPECT TO
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are on a mission to preserve rich craft traditions and processes by helping artists sustainably pass down their knowledge to future generations. And in the process, inspire everyone to make more, consume less.
If that sounds up your alley, then definitely apply.
