Responsibilities

  • Lead workshops/discussions with clients, identifying strategies for leveraging web technologies in support of their content, customers, and business goals.

  • Design and develop wireframes, user flows, functional specifications, and other representations to document and clarify that understanding.

  • Collaborate with visual designers and front end engineers on visual design deliverables, interactive prototypes, and production-ready web experiences.

Requirements

  • At least three years experience with information architecture, interaction design, user experience design, or similar field.

  • Demonstrated ability to design and define user experiences from blank sheets of paper to sitemaps and wireframes to developed sites.

  • Strong understanding of web interactions: patterns, best practices, common challenges website developers face and solutions to those challenges.

  • Have a collaborative, self-motivated, "always-learning" spirit, driven to improve user experiences everywhere at all times through smart design and applied effort.

  • Willingness to support occasional travel to client sites.

Nice to have

  • Alright, here's the deal. We're looking to hire someone to primarily do two things: (1) Design totally badass stuff and (2) help to build it. 

    Often, the aforementioned badass stuff will be in the form of WordPress-based websites. So, it's critical that you're familiar with WordPress and feel pretty comfortable bending it to your will. Experience using popular page builders, like Beaver Builder, Visual Composer and Divi, is a big plus. Beaver Builder especially.

    You don't need to be a hardcore developer to do this job (we've got some of those on staff, we intravenously pump them full of caffeine and try to avoid making direct eye contact). However, for you, a working knowledge of HTML and CSS will be fairly important.

    Right about now feels like a good time to make a list.

    In this job, you will:

    • Design websites, layouts, app interfaces and more. They will look terrific.

    • Help to build/code/assemble these things.

    • Use WordPress, a lot.

    • Collaborate closely with your team members, including other designers, developers and project managers.

    And you’ll need:

    • Killer design skills.

    • A fundamental understanding of UX/UI principles

    • Strong ability with Adobe software, particularly Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Also, we use Figma a lot.

    • Functional knowledge of HTML and CSS.

    • Experience with WordPress page builders, particularly Beaver Builder.

    • An enchanted fedora that allows the wearer to see into the future.

    We know what you're thinking. "Hey, this sounds exactly like the type of stuff I love to do! In fact, I love it so much, I'd do it for free!" Well, guess what: If you work here, you won't have to.

    That's right, we pay our employees.

    Your mind = blown.

    In exchange for your services, you'll be rewarded with a flexible work schedule, competitive pay, unlimited leave, as well as participation in our annual shutdown (often two weeks off, sometimes more, at the end of the year). Plus, we celebrate most federal holidays by not working.

    We welcome applicants from around the world, but please, no outsourcing companies or staffing agencies.

    To get started, send an email to [email protected] Use the subject line “Where do I sign?” If you don't use that subject line, you won't get the job. Be sure to include a link to your portfolio.
