Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Design


POSITION OVERVIEW

The space where impossibility intersects reality; where companies speed beyond norms and realize an exploded potential; where light filters out darkness, and machine intelligence makes everything about business smarter.   Hypergiant is rapidly growing and is in search for bright & creative minds who not only think outside a box, but don’t believe a box exists.  If you’ve ever been told you are a right-brain / left-brain individual, then we should chat.

WHAT WE'D LIKE TO SEE

Hypergiant is rapidly growing and is in search of a client-facing Senior Visual Designer to help design and brand AI-driven solutions for the enterprise. Ideally, you have amassed deep experience at a high-intensity agency, software development shop, or in-house at a SaaS startup. A broad understanding of how AI would improve a large, Fortune 500 company’s business is necessary.

YOUR DAY-TO-DAY

You’re a self-motivated individual who loves to solve big problems from a human-centered design perspective. You’re more than capable of holding your own in conversations about Artificial Intelligence, technology, Agile development, and more, but you are particularly inclined towards improving the holistic experience for people. You do your homework on the client, advances in their industry, and go above and beyond to forge relationships with key decision-makers.

WHAT YOU'LL GET

YOU WANT TO WIN. It could be a small mom & pop oil and gas company or a large fashion brand based out of NYC, but you always enter and exit the room with confidence, new friends, and new opportunities for Hypergiant to pursue.
