  • Identify opportunities in which design can enhance the project, or better communicate the project’s objectives, and work with the project team to collaboratively develop the concept

Process Innovation & Knowledge Management (20%):

  • Contribute to the development of visual design-related internal processes within Reboot to improve organizational agility, efficiency, and impact (for example, these processes could relate to how we take and organize photographs; how we coordinate on visual design projects between Abuja and NYC offices, etc)
  • Ensure quality control and uniformity across the Abuja office for Reboot-branded communications collateral, including templates and slide decks

Professional and Personal Attributes:

  • Passion for using visual communication to convey complex ideas in the service of positive social change
  • Demonstrated interest in finding creative ways to address social and economic problems, and creating opportunities for all people—especially poor and marginalized communities—to succeed in life
  • Demonstrated ability to operate flexibly and find creative solutions to achieve results in frequently changing circumstances
  • Enjoys working collaboratively in a team environment; is empathetic in approach to collaboration with others
  • Ability to work and make quality decisions under tight time constraints while adapting to changing priorities
