Senior Packaging Designer

We’re Jump. Pleased to meet you.

We continue to build the best team of talented creatives in the industry. Together, we think and collaborate to accomplish goals that others deem unattainable. We like to move fast. We love to solve problems. We can’t wait to build brands that win the hearts and minds of their audience. We are looking for people who share this dream, are relentlessly optimistic, and own the results. You must be eager to get involved and super psyched to help us change the world through better design.

  • Great company culture – work alongside great people doing great things
  • Urban loft style space with beautiful west views of the Don Valley and downtown Toronto
  • Leslieville vibe
  • Bottomless coffee (the good stuff)
  • Great benefits package including health and dental
  • Birthdays off – ’cause who wants to work on their birthday

So what kind of obsessive packaging person are we really looking for?

When “I need to pick up a few things” turns into a 3-hour trip to the grocery store because you find yourself standing in the aisles looking at packaging, you might be a packaging designer. When you find yourself checking out at the liquor store with 7 bottles, but you aren’t going to a party, you might be a packaging designer. When you buy things you don’t need and will never use, simply because the packaging is “cute”…well, you get it.

We’re looking for someone who understands the complexity of packaging hierarchy and master brands, and can art direct amazing photography (you’ve worked with some of Toronto’s best photographers). You’ve got great design instincts, a knack for drawing type, simple illustrations, and icons. You bring an affinity for fonts, and a propensity for photography. You know a nutritional table and where to put it (and no, delete isn’t an option). You know a dieline when you see one (and how it configures), you understand shelf blocking, can make mockups with ease, and know how to conduct a competitive audit and study. We’re not asking for much, just an obsession with packaging, a sense of humour, and a solid work ethic.
