POSITION: 6475 Power Point Designer - Lenexa, KS



JOB TYPE: Contract

DURATION: 1 year renewable

COMPENSATION: Depending on history and experience.


SmartSource has a 6 month contract opportunity for a design-conscious, story-sensitive and detail-obsessed PowerPoint Designer to join the creative wing of its client’s global marketing team.

Requirements -A minimum of two years working with PowerPoint in a professional setting. -Demonstrated experience editing content for live presentations, creating sequenced demos and using relevant, custom graphics (not clipart) as an integral part of the story. -A passion for creating demos and telling stories through PowerPoint. -Experience creating, editing, and implementing templates. -Knowledge of graphic formats, how they work with PowerPoint, and working with graphic designers on producing the best possible imagery for slide decks. -Be able to clearly demonstrate your ability to concept original ideas from scratch. -Be a self-motivated individual capable of collaborating in a team-oriented environment. -Strong multi-tasking skills – priorities and tasks can change quickly as the marketing team moves to accommodate current product technology and needs of the sales team. -Effective communication skills. Without these, you can’t do this job. -An eye for design basics: whitespace, color, typography and an understanding of how poor clipart choices can be detrimental to presentations. -A sense of humor (especially when it comes to PowerPoint), the ability to work within a very productive team environment and a dedication to the deadline. Optional Requirements: -Experience integrating video, audio, Flash or other multimedia content into PowerPoint slides. -Working with PowerPoint slide management tools. -History with Captivate or other screen capture technologies. Responsibilities: The in-house creative team is wholly responsible for the design, copywriting and demo output of the company. As a PowerPoint Designer, you will distill the needs of the sales team, the product information from the development team, and the creative brilliance of the design and copywriting teams into flawless presentation material that representatives from the company (including executive-level team members) can use in the field as sales tools. Sound like a tall order? That’s because it is. You will craft PowerPoint slide decks that convey our complex but compelling story. You will be working with cutting-edge software in a fast-moving industry. You will work with other members of the creative team in producing top-shelf content that can be integrated into existing sales tools. You will meet with representatives of other departments, learn their pain points, and execute to solve them. We are looking for someone to whom “detail-oriented,” “goal-focused” and “communication skills” are not clichés. If you only pay lip service to these mantras, do not apply. If you hold them close to your heart and have a passion for using PowerPoint as a next-level storytelling tool, we’ll work well together. Qualifications: You must be able to demonstrate past PowerPoint work through a portfolio of previous work.
