Are you the one on your team always up at the (now virtual) whiteboard, taking charge to guide brainstorming sessions and finding effective ways to capture and synthesize the outcomes into something actionable? Do you try to codify things with pictures and diagrams, and constantly get asked to help with presentations because you’re “the creative one”?

If you have an insatiable curiosity to understand how and why things work, a drive to visually organize ideas so that others can make sense of them, and the confidence to step up even when you aren’t the ‘subject matter expert’, then let’s talk!

Tremendousness is a visual storytelling firm and we need tremendous strategists like you. We create high-end infographics, animations, presentations, and experiences that make complex things understandable and engaging. Send your resume and cover letter to jobs@tremendo.us.
