Job Description

Vital Strategies is a US-based international public health organization working in more than 70 countries to strengthen public health systems and address leading causes of morbidity and mortality.

Resolve to Save Lives is an initiative of Vital Strategies with a mission to prevent 100 million deaths from heart disease and to make the world safer from epidemics. Our programs have a wide, exciting variety of design projects, including both print and digital work. These projects include fact sheets, posters, quarterly and annual reports, PowerPoint slides, social media memes and gifs, data visualizations and website design and maintenance. We have projects requiring multiple communications products that need to be conceptualized and designed.

We believe our programs are strengthened when they are developed and supported by individuals with diverse life experiences, whose understanding of social and cultural issues can help make our work and workforce more inclusive. We encourage people of all racial, economic, social, cultural, sexual orientation, and gender expressions to apply.
