Are you able to create designs that inspire? Are you ready to engage with a fun, spirited culture focused on creating magical moments for sick kids in hospitals?

About Open Heart Magic
Open Heart Magic: Working on the front lines of when kids need help the most, right at their hospital bedsides
Open Heart Magic (OHM) began in 2004 with the mission of bringing the transformative and therapeutic power of magic to kids facing the toughest medical situations. At the end of 2019, more than 160 of our volunteer Hospital Magicians were performing and teaching kids magic at their hospital bedsides. OHM volunteers change the hospital experience for young patients by taking their minds off their fears, bringing them hope, and making them feel stronger to tackle their illnesses. In 2019, our Bedside Magic® programs reached over 12,000 children one-on-one at fifteen children’s hospitals in Chicago, Ann Arbor and Cleveland, including Lurie Children’s Hospital, University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, and the Cleveland Clinic. In 2020, we launched an exciting new pilot program, Magic Delivery™, to help empower kids facing serious challenges without volunteer programming being offered.
Design a Brighter Future for Sick Kids
The Design & Program Manager is not your typical design position, because we are not your typical children’s charity.
The OHM community is filled with dynamic, talented, and dedicated people – more than 200 volunteers commit their time and energy to serve as Hospital Magicians, Board Directors, Professional Board members, and Charity Team athletes. We’re looking for someone who is eager to bring their own energy and talents to the OHM team while embracing a cause that is beloved by so many.
As Design & Program Manager, you will help advance OHM’s mission in two essential ways: 1) provide training and support to our amazing volunteer community; and 2) spread joy and hope through the OHM brand.
The OHM brand is fun, playful, upbeat, and adventurous – reflecting our community of highly invested and highly entertaining characters. We’re looking for a designer who is excited to be a driver of this identity while using their own creativity to build off the OHM brand.
