About Your Team Leader
Your team leader, Chloe Devine, is the graphic design manager at Mercy For Animals. Having recently taken on this role, Chloe is excited to grow the design team as the need to support the organization's efforts through design continues to grow exponentially. Chloe has a background in creative strategy and design and spent years working at a New York-based branding agency where she focused on impact-driven clientele. She also has lengthy experience in marketing and social media from her years working with e-commerce clients.

Chloe prides herself on being a friendly and approachable communicator. Her goals as a manager are to inspire learning. She believes in empowerment, offering a sounding board and support where useful but encouraging others to own their work and be experts in their domain.

Chloe is a real fan of the arts and enjoys visiting galleries and museums, crafting, painting, and learning new design skills in her spare time. When she's not at work, you can find her exploring the outdoors, riding her bike, or baking. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, she now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Compensation And Benefits
Earn an annual salary of $70,000–$75,000 (paid hourly), depending on qualifications. In addition to a collaborative and innovative work environment, you will be able to take part in our benefits package, including no- or low-cost health, vision, and dental insurance; generous paid time off and sick leave; and 401(k) retirement plan, with a dollar-to-dollar employer match of up to 3 percent of your annual earnings.

Application Details
We consider traditional and nontraditional qualifications and carefully review each application, resume, and cover letter. Feel encouraged to go outside a traditional cover letter and state how you would add to our culture; what we would gain from having you on our team; and how you align with our organizational vision, mission, and values.

Our Commitment to You
Mercy For Animals is a globally minded organization. We are committed to the principles of equity and justice, and our culture celebrates authenticity—enabling every team member to shine. All employment decisions are based solely on individual qualifications, job needs, and job requirements, and potential team members of every color, orientation, age, gender, origin, veteran status, and ability are encouraged to apply. We strive to include candidates from historically marginalized communities and those from or in communities impacted by environmental, social, and economic injustice.

Come as you are, and help us transform our society and construct a truly compassionate food system.
