Job Description

onX embodies the Montana spirit. With offices in Missoula and Bozeman, we are passionate about the outdoors and inspiring others to find their own off-pavement adventures. Throughout multiple years of rapid growth, we haven’t lost the entrepreneurial ethos that first gave rise to our flagship product, onX Hunt. 
In this fast-paced, design-forward environment, ownership and accountability are essential. We refuse to let the onX brand grow stagnant, and the addition of new and innovative designers is an essential component of building the onX brand into a leader in the outdoor industry.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join our team to do meaningful and impactful work within an industry-leading outdoor brand. You will be responsible for designing clear, compelling, creative assets across a variety of channels and will be looked upon for conceptualizing creative strategy and execution of a project or campaign from beginning to end.
We are looking for a constantly-curious, well-rounded designer who embraces challenges in a fast-paced environment and knows how to lead a project from end-to-end.  You should have a desire to both collaborate and lead because you know that the best work and most successful designers not only strive for their personal best but also inspire others to produce great work.
To be successful in this role, you should have in-depth knowledge of design principles, layout and composition, current industry and design trends, knowledge of color and typography principles, and be able to produce best-in-class, creative assets and strategies while working within and pushing the boundaries of our brand style guides.
