Pangaea builds & distributes premium, international-first consumer brands directly to customers around the world. We are a fast growing startup based in Los Angeles with a common goal of building ultra-quality products at a fraction of luxury prices.

We are growing incredibly fast and would like to hire an art director who is looking for a long term career in brand curation, web visualization and product design. If you are interested in an exciting career, not just a paycheck, then check this out : 

++++++++++++++

1. Your main objective is to translate brand concepts into visuals. You will be interacting closely with brand managers and supply chain associates to iterate on product development, web design and photography. We believe frequent iteration triumphs drawn-out production funnel.

2. Creativity is critical. We take great pride in identifying market opportunities and building unique products for customers around the globe. Such goal will require effective execution of translating concept into visual assets online regardless of the industry. If we were to launch a skincare brand this week and a winter wear brand next week, how would you differentiate the two? Would you recycle previously used UX or create a new type of online experience?

3. You will need to work closely with many product developers, juggle different visual objectives and meet fast-paced timelines. The roadmap from concept to first web visit should take no more than 1 ~ 2 weeks. The whole launch team is counting on you to be 100% every day, and if you've ever worked in this type of startup environment, you understand how important teamwork and commitment are to personal success!

4. We love a global perspective in everything we build. Testing new markets around the world requires an understanding of localized UX and necessary product differentiation. If we were to test Glossier or Brook Linen equivalents in Central Asia or Latam, how would the visuals differ - if at all?

5. You get your hands dirty. You should be able to jump in wherever necessary - photography, graphic design, mock-ups, etc - and outsource components that is slowing the process down. We love effective delegators who are not afraid to operate to keep things moving.

Why are Pangaeans working on Pangaea?

#1. We firmly believe DTC is the better way to conduct online commerce. Imagine working on a product where only price and bullet points mattered. We think it's more rewarding when we are able to present our unique and compelling products to the customers with an ultra-quality, end-to-end experience that we own.

#2. Everyone in world deserves better products at value prices. Traditionally, urban consumers in first world countries got their first dibs on new, innovative products. Now, digital access and mature logistics are changing how people purchase around the world. We find it rewarding to be the equal opportunity artisans of the world.

#3. Personal growth. To broaden our multi-cultural mindset as a team, we offer free foreign language lessons to promote open-mindedness. We encourage everyone to purchase or borrow books from our mini library. Similar to how startups are evaluated, future personal growth dictates much of the current value.

If you are interested, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out with questions or comments and looking forward to building together!
