The NBA, NBPA, and Dapper Labs have teamed up to create NBA Top Shot, a revolutionary new experience in which jaw-dropping plays and unforgettable highlights become collectibles that you can own forever. NBA Top Shot is a first-of-its-kind officially-licensed NBA experience. NBA fans can truly own a piece of the action and trade with friends for real money in a new kind of hoops economy. NBA Top Shot launched in private beta 6 months ago and has since seen accelerated growth, with over $200M in the last 30 days.
We’re hiring a full-time Art Director to join NBA Top Shot’s in-house Creative team.
The Creative team at Dapper Labs is a multi-disciplinary group with specialisms spanning marketing, illustration, graphic design, and motion. We pride ourselves on fostering a dynamic, knowledge-sharing culture, with regular design reviews and design presentations in which to participate. Our workplace is diverse, collaborative, and fast-paced. As a member of the team, you’ll have ownership over your designs, get regular feedback to help you improve, and enjoy the freedom to champion new and fresh ideas.
At Dapper, you’ll work on highly visible portfolio pieces, collaborate with team members across a multitude of disciplines, and defy the limits of what audiences can expect from our products each day.

- Engage the next generation of NBA fans with compelling visuals, working from concept through execution to create NBA caliber assets
- Partner with Marketing to run experimental campaigns that deliver data-driven results to support the growth of our user base
- Leverage fandom to produce social media content that is appropriate for each channel and connects with fans
