(1) 40 dayside hours/week,
(2) on-site at the employer workplace five days/week;
(3) in the K Street corridor of NW, Washington, DC;
(4) starting no later than mid-May;
(5) for the foreseeable future.

PAY RATE & SALARY:

Based on conversations we have had with our client, Brainstorm Creative Resources has determined a temporary engagement pay rate range of $50/hour to $75/hour for an expected 40 hours of work per week, and a full-time salary range of $75K to $95K plus benefits.

It is not uncommon in temporary-to-permanent transition scenarios, for the temporary, hourly pay rate to be different than the salaried, hourly pay rate. We understand that experienced designers who accept transitional engagements, do so without the express guarantee of a potential near-term hire. Therefore temporary, hourly pay rates are often (but not always) higher than salaried, hourly pay rates for the same position. We will be glad to discuss in more detail with the most well qualified applicants.

The actual rate and/or salary offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. It will also be based on some or all of the following

factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your portfolio, interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.

Brainstorm Creative Resources pays competitively and actively encourages our employer clients to do the same. However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay less experienced applicants at the top of the stated salary range. More experienced applicants can expect that we will make a strong, evidentiary case to our client, to pay you at the top of the range.

Qualifications: A High level of proficiency in the use of Adobe CC tools that are relevant to the work outlined above.
