OXO is hiring a Packaging Designer for our New York City office.
At OXO, we're on a quest to make the everyday better. For over 25 years, we've made household tools that delight our customers and exceed their expectations. When we have an idea, we're going to make it happen, even if it hasn't been done before-especially if it hasn't been done before. If you've ever thought, "There's got to be a better way to do this," you belong here, too.
We balance hard work with a thriving office culture; community isn't just a buzzword at OXO, it's a way of life. With a guest speaker series covering topics like service robots and crafting hard-to-write letters, group limoncello making, book and bike clubs, volunteering opportunities, luau-themed happy hours, summer outings to theme parks, and an annual ski trip-we like coming to work every day and think you should, too.
What you'll be doing:
As a member of OXO's Brand Design team, the Packaging Designer is responsible for the concepting and design of graphics for all OXO packaging as well as point of purchase, signage and sales collateral.
