    • Developing a comprehensive thumbnail design strategy across multiple of our client channels
    • How to leverage potential viewers through effective thumbnail design (What are the biggest deciding factors viewers think about when they click a video?)
    • Creating images that will focus on eye-catching design and design data provided through analytics research and understanding of new media trends
Who you'll work with:
  • We're a small team that prioritizes fun, autonomy, and memes (since we make content, we try to keep up with the youngun's lingo, "no cap").
  • We love to balance team meetings with OKR reviews and screaming bloody murder at each other in Among Us. So don't be sus.

Where you'll do it:
  • Anywhere in the world! Sit on the beaches of Maui or the mountains of Tibet.
  • If you ARE in SF or LA, we might be able to co-work!

What we do:
  • Dragonfruit media aims to not only create the best content in the world. but content that makes the world a better place.

  • 💵 We think that businesses owning organic distribution channels (vs constantly buying media) is the future of marketing
  • 🌎 We think stories transform lives, and if we can teach thousands of people through our client's videos we are making the world a better place

Who you are:
  • You have a knack for visual aesthetics, you may have even edited some videos yourself in the past!
  • Pride yourself on your people and communication skills; you could probably wipe your family on family poker night
  • OBSESSIVE about using data and feedback to improve your craft
  • Tech-savvy and are a quick learner with software (we need more slack GIFS!!!)
