    We’re looking for our first lead designer. You love taking creative risks, and have a thoughtful approach to both UI and UX? Then we should talk! Your goals will be twofold: how can you best improve the experience for customers and marketers, and how can you do so in a magnificently beautiful way?

    This is not a junior position. If you are experienced, have proven to be able to work independently and like being a design mentor for everyone working at Frontastic, this position is for you.

    WHAT YOU’LL DO

    • Develop the Frontastic design language for our products and lead the user experience of our software products

    • Collaborate with business and engineering teams to understand and translate complex ideas into new features, screens and interface elements

    • Maintain design coherence and brand consistency across all Frontastic products, while providing guidance to other teams

    • Build functional and beautiful interfaces for our product

    • You have demonstrated experience working across all phases of the product design process, including ideation, user flows, wireframes, prototypes, high-fidelity mockups, copywriting, specs, visual assets, and other deliverables

    • You have a strong portfolio showcasing your best work

    • You are fluent in product design tools like Sketch, Figma or Framer

    • You have a can-do, startup mentality

    • You don’t see UX in isolation, but rather as a team attitude

    • You are motivated to work from your home office or a co-working space and able to structure your work day accordingly.

    • You are able and willing to prefer written communication to make well structured information readily available to everyone and follow established communication patterns

    • You are motivated to work from your home office or a co-working space and able to structure your work day accordingly. That’s what makes you special.

    WHAT WE OFFER

    As our colleague you have the flexibility to choose your own working hours throughout the day to incorporate this job into your life-work balance. Our work week has 40 hours maximum and overtime is the exception. No vacation days are necessary to run errands, and there is certainly no need to wait until after work to take care of a family emergency.

    Our team strives to improve themselves following these guidelines:

    • We offer a friendly learning environment and try hard not to blame anyone for not knowing something and actively encourage mentoring of your peers.

    • We use practices like pair programming, mob programming, test driven development when it makes sense and continuously refactor our code to constantly share knowledge and keep the amount of technical dept low.

    • We are a remote-first company with regular meetings in-person. We use tools like Email, AirTable, Hangouts and Slack to stay in touch during our daily work.

    • We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company.

    Webflow is a fast-growing, globally distributed team with a big opportunity and bigger mission — actually, two missions: one for us, one for the world. At Webflow, we’re on a mission to enable everyone to create for the web — and empower our team to lead fulfilling, impactful lives while we do it. 

    Our missions are ambitious — and we’re looking to hire a Director of Design to support and empower a talented and diverse group of product designers, brand designers, and design managers to design a product that unlocks the creative power for millions of people. Our teams are growing quickly and you'll help us scale how we work across the company to best serve our customers. This is a rare opportunity for a people-centric design leader to shape the future of a design-centric technology company in alignment with our core behaviors.

    Design plays a central role in our company, especially since many of our customers are designers. Each core product area has at least one product designer embedded as a key partner, helping decide what we build. Two of our co-founders have design backgrounds, and we've strived to cultivate a creative and collaborative environment that allows our product teams to do their best work. This begins with our most important core behavior: start with customers. We focus on solving the most important customer needs while maintaining a high bar for quality. Industry-shifting products like Interactions, CMS, and Ecommerce all started by listening to the needs of our passionate community of designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and marketers.

    If you’re excited about growing a world-class product design, brand design, and user research team, overseeing the design of high-quality products, and fostering a creative culture that encourages more diverse and global viewpoints then you’ll be a great fit! (We're also hiring Product Design Managers to work more closely with our individual contributors.)

    Note: You'll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.

    What you’ll do

    • Cultivate and evolve a world-class product design, brand design, and user research team with effective recruiting, strategic management, and team mentorship.

    • Coach and provide feedback on your team’s performance to ensure they are delivering high-quality work that meets customer and business needs.

    • Define clear career paths that help your team identify opportunities for growth and provide plans for achieving measurable goals.

    • Collaborate closely with leaders in other functions (PM and Engineering) to ensure that product teams are working effectively toward the high-level company strategy.

    • Work closely with leadership to fulfill the team’s core values, cultivate an inclusive and supportive culture, a clear organizational structure, and established processes.

    • Collaborate with your team and other functions (PM and Engineering) to define the vision and strategy for new product initiatives.

    • Represent Webflow in and engage with the larger design community by sharing your unique design insights through speaking, writing, tweeting, or any other medium that feels natural to you.

    ‍We'd love to hear from you if you have:

    • 2+ years of design management experience focused on serving others while hiring, developing, and managing designers, design leads, and design managers in a fast-growing environment.

    • A body of work that demonstrates high impact and high quality. You know what world-class design looks like and you empower your team to reach it.

    • Experience working on a large modern tech product or platform with significant scale. You’re a strong systems and conceptual thinker.

    • Demonstrated communication style that is concise, articulate, and capable of inspiring a team.  

    • Experience setting product design direction, from high-level strategic direction down to UI design details, within a multi-team and cross-discipline environment.

    • Ability to influence without authority and proven experience working with Product and Engineering to affect positive outcomes.

    • A commitment to cultivating an inclusive team culture that ensures a happy, motivated, diverse, and high-functioning design team.

    • A strong growth mindset with a demonstrated ability to adapt quickly to change.

    • A tendency to dream big and encourage creative risk-taking while protecting the integrity of the brand.

    Applying

    • Think you’re a good fit for the role? We’d love to hear from you — even if you don’t meet 100% of the requirements. 

    • Our goal is to create a hiring experience that provides opportunities for and values everyone equally. We value whatever it is that makes you unique—your educational background, experience, ethnicity, age, citizenship, gender identity — and we would love to explore the value you can add to our team.

  • About RenoFi

    The demand for home renovations has never been stronger, yet, it's surprisingly difficult for a new homeowner to renovate. It can take a decade to build up enough home equity and savings to pay for a major renovation. As a result, recent homeowners do a lot of financially-suboptimal things to compensate like borrow from their 401k, rack up credit card debt and use high interest personal loans. Or they just live unhappily for years in a home that doesn't meet their family's needs.

    But by completing a major renovation, homeowners are increasing the value of their home. Professional real estate investors leverage this After Renovation Value (ARV) to roll the increase in value into new properties all the time. But there hasn't been a great way for homeowners to take advantage of this. If homeowners had an ability to borrow against the ARV, they could increase their borrowing power up to 10x.

    To meet this need, RenoFi created the first home equity loan purpose-built for renovations! Unlike standard home equity loans, RenoFi Loans use the value of your home post-renovation which lets you borrow the most money at the best possible terms.  RenoFi is creating a full suite of renovation loan products to better suit the needs of today’s homeowners!

    For homeowners, RenoFi makes it possible to renovate years earlier than might be otherwise feasible. For contractors, we empower the financing of renovations at the point of sale, reducing instances of scope reduction and ensuring prompt payment. Our lender partners, most often credit unions, rely on RenoFi's platform to generate loans, create efficiencies, and grow membership. The lenders pay RenoFi for the new loans, which allows us to offer our services to homeowners for free. RenoFi is truly a win-win-win for everyone involved.

    RenoFi is backed by some of the best startup investors in the world, including First Round Capital, Canaan Partners and Comcast Ventures.

    What you’ll do at RenoFi

    We are hiring our first product designer to help us build products for the homeowners who come to RenoFi for assistance financing their renovation, systems to integrate with our lender partners, and applications for our service provider partners (like contractors and architects) who refer clients to RenoFi. You will have the opportunity to work across these product areas and applications.

    This is your opportunity to get in on the ground-floor. You’ll have a ton of impact and help us to define our products and processes.

    What we look for

    A deep thinking product designer who is passionate about making great products that improve the lives of real people. You understand how to balance the needs of the users, the business and technology. 

    At RenoFi you will be involved in every aspect of the product development process, from brainstorming product innovations, to prototyping, to tweaking pixels right before launch. You will be expected to utilize your full range of UX, interaction, and UI design skills.

    We face a number of design challenges. You’ll lead the full lifecycle of your own product design projects, shape how we test and optimize existing features, and make a positive impact on how the design team operates and engages with the rest of the company. You love a fast-paced product cycle and feel comfortable iterating quickly. You care about interaction design, typography and layout, and understand the complex nature of changing web and mobile technologies having designed for both.

    You love to dive in and understand the very essence of a problem, why we’re solving it and what success will look like. You love to get into the mindset of users, to understand how they think and feel and create a true sense of empathy for them.

    You love challenging problems and can collaborate with team members to define the problem, form a hypothesis, and work to test your hypothesis quickly.

    You have a quiver of product design tools & techniques that you can deploy at the right moment. You also understand the value of user research and some techniques to employ in order to get the right data to inform your design decisions.

    You have strong communication and collaboration skills. Our team is a highly collaborative team, so open dialogue and a positive attitude is crucial. You craft amazing looking visuals for digital experiences, and you create functionality that always keeps simplicity, ease of use, optimization and context in mind.

    You have 4+ years of experience building building and shipping applications or software that span desktop, tablet, and mobile.

    We are a globally distributed team

    RenoFi is a fully distributed team. Please highlight any prior experience working remotely when applying. US or GMT-adjacent timezones will be prioritized.

    RenoFi offers competitive cash and equity compensation. Some benefit offerings will vary from country to country. In the United States, we offer competitive health and retirement plans. All staff across the globe enjoy a flexible vacation policy.

    As an Interaction Designer, you will conquer complex design challenges and develop engaging experiences for multi-generational users impacted by the student debt crisis.

    As part of a Series A start-up, you will be challenged to wear multiple hats in a fast-paced, dynamic role that includes critical responsibilities in UI design, UX and interaction design, graphic design and accessibility. We are looking for someone to join our war against student debt and equip our team with solutions that create valuable experiences with our customers, users, and key stakeholders.

    As a creative leader, you are thrilled to chase the answers to the most challenging questions in design and you are constantly seeking ways that would make a human experience feel more intuitive, inclusive, accessible, fun, and delightful. You see the job title as just a starting point and you naturally feel empowered to solve problems without being asked, but you also value being a team member that seeks collaboration over siloed decision-making. You are not afraid to lead and are excited by the opportunity to contribute new ideas and spearhead new strategies to help us build and grow our global team and company. You will report to the VP of Product and work with a growing team of full-time and contracted resources across design, UX, engineering, operations, and sales.

    Does this sound like you? 

    You have fierce attention to detail. You embrace ambiguity, thrive in the agile environment of a start-up, and are excited about building systems and processes from the ground up.

    You can dive deep into the micro of how products, websites, processes, and assets get designed and built, while also maintaining the ability to zoom out into the macro and provide the vision for how our product design can iterate into an influential powerhouse for innovation, social impact, and market-leading UX.

    You are seeking to help build digital experiences that won't settle for any standard less than inspiring love and admiration by people, for people. You are naturally curious, eager to explore uncharted territory, and diligent in balancing competing opportunities and constraints. 

    You seek growth through constant feedback loops and constructive critique. You naturally challenge yourself and others to achieve increasingly complex challenges and key results over time.

    As a member of the FutureFuel family, we are looking for someone who is proud to be a part of a mission-driven organization that exists to CRUSH student debt. 

    Key Responsibilities: 

    • Translate product requirements, user needs, and technical requirements into wireframes and low-fi designs that create user experiences that are enticing, easy to understand, and emotionally engaging.

    • Collect feedback and best-case examples from the team and collaborate cross-functionally to guide the team in the direction, style, brand and methodology.

    • Generate clear ideas, concepts, creative insights and provide project oversight on visual assets from beginning to end.

    • Create storyboards, mockups, and flow charts to help translate into a product design strategy that iterates from low-fi mockups to high-fi, pixel-perfect prototypes.

    • Review, refine, and approve design assets through a system of design quality assurance and validation.

    • Work collaboratively with other designers and cross-functionally to ensure a consistent, integrated brand perception and user-experience.

    • Be a design evangelist; you naturally stay tuned into the latest design standards, guidelines, and discussions in the visual design field and seek to bring ideas from the outside in to fortify our team.

    • Work closely with the product team to ensure that UX specifications are documented prior to handoff with Sales and Engineering. 

    • Evangelize human-focused design throughout the product utilizing design thinking methodologies that support an iterative product development process. 

    • Contribute to FutureFuel.io’s knowledge base.

    Culture Statement: 

    • We seek alignment to our core values as distinguished in our Culture Statement: 

    • We are a tribe of dreamers, visionaries, and pioneers that exist to execute in service of our customers, liberating users from the shackles of indebtedness. 

    • We empower our tribe to tirelessly innovate, challenge each other and ourselves, contribute, succeed and fail. 

    • We are artisans who view our craft as a joyful opportunity to use our gifts for the good of our people. 

    • We see change as a constant and we embrace this as an opportunity. 

    • We are passionate servants who will never compromise on our integrity, and will always do what is best for those who depend on us. 

    • We have an uncomfortable urgency to get s**t done, but a stubborn patience to experiment so that we can design an experience that truly resonates with our people. 

    • We won't always get it right the first time, and when this happens, we will own up to it and see this as an incredible opportunity to fortify as a team and try yet again. 

    • We are FutureFuelers.

    • Lead and advise projects showcasing our brand and retaining a consistent brand message across multiple platforms: product, print, partner communication, events, advertising, and soft goods.

    • Carry ideas forward with discretion and little direction.

    • Proficiency with current industry design tools needed to carry out brand work.

    • Effective project management ability, paired with exceptional communication skills.

    Other things to know:

    • We are a small, remote team distributed across time zones, and we rely on a variety of communication tools throughout the day.

    • Sometimes we meet up! Expect to travel at least two times a year: once for our all-hands meetup and again for a team retreat (each ~4-5 days).

    • We believe in a focused approach to collaboration, where individual team members work on a single top priority at a time, each supporting larger, company-wide objectives. This philosophy serves to impact our vision to raise the standard of trust online.

    • Our work philosophy centers on empowered project management. All team members have opportunities to run projects.

    • Transparency supports individual and team success at DuckDuckGo. We encourage everyone to participate in areas of interest throughout the company. Anyone and everyone can (and should) ask questions and offer feedback about our products and internal projects.

    • We aim to exemplify our values (build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction) in everything we do.

    • While this is a full-time job, we offer a flexible work arrangement with no core hours, expecting an average commitment of 40 hours per week.

    • We support professional development of our team members through career advisory and a learning stipend, reinforcing our culture of growth and skill-building.

    DuckDuckGo does not work with any recruiting agencies or services. Instead, we work with each candidate one-on-one throughout a unique hiring process that we've built to reflect our company culture.

    Tara AI helps enterprise companies predict their spec, timeline and personnel needs for future software products, by analyzing their past projects. Today, the process of scoping is a completely manual process; enterprise companies are losing an average of $66Bn through inefficiencies in IT and software project scoping leading to cost and timeline overruns. However, F500 companies are sitting on a treasure trove of data in their project management systems, git version control and workforce directories. We connect to this data via an API, and using ML models, predict how to build their software (technical tasks), how long projects should take (timeline) and who will execute (team) when starting a new project.  Customers include product teams at F500s like IBM, Cisco & Orange Telecom.

    • Collaborate with front-end and blockchain developers

    • Be autonomous and self driven

    • Help us create and maintain the company’s culture and core values while we grow

    • Knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript

    • Great communication skills

    • High level understanding of blockchain and p2p networks

  • Who we are / what we do

    At Hanno, we’re dedicated to helping organisations of all sizes transform themselves and the healthcare industry. For us, this means rethinking what it takes to design, build and launch the next generation of digital health products and services—whether their goal is improving patient care, treatment compliance, clinical diagnostics or surgical precision—these are serious challenges, and they need seriously good solutions.

    More than a consultancy, we’re also an in-house product team—we are effectively building and launching new startup propositions for our clients and ourselves. To do this we need an amazing team of designers, engineers, strategists, and roles we haven’t even created yet.

    We don’t work like an agency, or a consultancy, or even a product studio. We work with our clients as if we were part of their team. We join them in the trenches. We treat the unseen aspects of their product as if they were on full display. We go above and beyond the brief to maximise the impact and success they have on the market and the users they serve.

    To live up to this, everyone in our team relentlessly drives towards the same goal—to improve the health and wellbeing of people all over the world.

    If that lights a fire in your belly, come on board.

    What you'll be doing

    • You’ll be the custodian of everything the user touches—defending their interests and needs (to the death) and solving serious design challenges with elegant, intuitive and, if needs be, unconventional solutions, with a touch of personal flair. In practical terms, you’ll be working on greenfield projects, collaborating closely with UX directors, art directors and the best engineers, strategists and “tier 1” clients to create engaging user experiences; building prototypes, designing beautiful and polished interfaces, leading other designers, and helping ensure smooth handovers.

    • You use design best practices that work – You have great taste in interfaces. You keep abreast of what works and what doesn’t as our medium continues to evolve. You can instantly recognise the tools and methods required to achieve results in any given situation.

    • You can work fast, and slow – Having worked in both fast-paced start-up environments and more process-driven corporate settings, you understand how to balance lean design principles with corporate governance and signoff processes.

    • You’re willing and able to go beyond the conventional – Digital products can lack personality, style and risk-taking. We never compromise accessibility or performance but we do push the creative boundaries of what’s possible to create unique, engaging experiences. You’re not only comfortable with this but crave the opportunity to create original concepts and new UI systems.

    • You’ve found balance – You know how to balance a product’s design with what your peers would applaud and what your client and their users really need. You know when to strive for pixel perfect, when good is good enough, and when polished interactions and animations serve a purpose, and when they are simply a pursuit of vanity.

    • You have a sharp eye for detail – You have highly developed organisational skills and the ability to prioritise tasks. You strive for quality not only in your final deliverables but also in the working assets you use along the way.

    • You over-communicate with the team about your priorities, choices, tradeoffs, and the rationale behind the design decisions you take.

    You'll have

    • Several years experience in product design with experience leading other designers

    • A portfolio of projects that you can talk us through: the end result, the process you took, trade-offs you had to make, the inspiration and design systems you used

    • A deep understanding and appreciation of the various design systems and guidelines that dominate app and web interfaces, and where and when they should be used

    • Strong UX capabilities: you’re able to interrogate and understand a product's users and commercial goals and make sure our work drives towards these

    • Expert UI skills: you have a rich understanding of UI principles and can apply these to polished, interactive designs

    • A proactive mindset: if there's something you don't understand, or a task/process tweak that's needed, you seek to address it rather than relying on others to

    • Fluency in spoken and written English: accents are fine, but we work on tricky projects across multiple time zones so great communication is a must

    • Willingness to get overlap with the team: they’ll be on a European time zone, so you’ll need to arrange for at least 4 hours of overlap each day

    • Bonus if you also have

    • Experience doing all of the above 100% remotely!

    • Achieved mastery of; type hierarchies, interaction language, intuitive navigation, modality, card-based component design, and data visualisation

    • Knowledge and experience of designing products for patients and clinicians

    Working at Theorem

    This is a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a small, funded startup that's inventing a new format of high production value, "cinematic" audio courses, along with an interactive learning experience that goes beyond what people have come to expect with podcasts.

    Our team is partially distributed so any location within the US is OK, but Los Angeles is strongly preferred.

  • Hypergiant (US only)
    2 months ago

    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.

  • 2 months ago

    We’re looking for a Product Designer to play a key role in every phase of product development. 

    This is a unique opportunity to be a high-impact, early member of the Aptible Team. Reporting directly to our VP of Design, you'll be responsible for designing and developing tools that help our clients improve their security posture.

    About Aptible

    Our Vision

    We see a future where it’s easy to bring a great idea into the world using the internet, while respecting data security and privacy. The next generation of businesses will design security and privacy into their operating processes. If every business is going to be a software business, every business will need to be a security business.

    We’re working to make information security a core competency of every startup. We envision a world in which startups have access to great information security, are empowered to focus on their businesses instead of on compliance, can scale faster and more efficiently, and are confident that they're creating quality products.

    Our Values

    Commitment to the Team

    We're passionate about building a diverse team of talented people who accomplish great things together, regardless of where they are. We talk a lot about the science of high-performing teams and how to make Aptible the best environment to support that kind of team. If you love the mutual support and camaraderie of a strong team that wins together, we want to hear from you.

    Commitment to Each Other

    We commit to each other as individuals, one on one. We measure our commitments carefully and hold each other accountable, which means we’re able to deliver more for our colleagues and customers in the long run. We set only a few very clear, ambitious goals as a company each quarter, and talk about them constantly to reinforce focus. We make time to recognize, praise, and reward those who consistently deliver on their promises.

    Commitment to The Mission

    Startups are hard, and we expect challenges and missteps. We love winning, but most of all, we value getting back up and getting better at what we do. We are deeply motivated to build trust on the internet by empowering teams, and we respect grit and perseverance in furtherance of that mission.

    Growth Over Perfection

    We fail often and early, and learn from it. We talk about improving constantly. We praise those who give feedback early and often. We put effort into being good at giving feedback: When we give feedback, we make each other feel big, not small. This helps create an environment where we can take reasonable risks, which in turn helps us make decisions quickly and learn fast. We expect managers to delegate a lot, and acknowledge that delegation means sometimes letting someone make what you think is the wrong decision.

    Teaching as Learning

    We are a team of learners. We value and respect teaching as the best way to learn, and make time to share information openly. We set explicit goals around training, and devote resources to developing and improving our internal training. We praise those who share knowledge in public — by asking and answering questions in team chat, writing documentation, and writing for our customers.

    Taking Responsibility Over Giving Responsibility

    Identifying problems is a good start, but we love solving them more. We think and talk a lot about how we can improve, and work hard at it. We value and reward those who take initiative. We don't like meetings where we only talk about problems.

    Asking Why

    We ask “why?” a lot in order to understand root causes. Asking why helps us cultivate focus and make high-quality decisions quickly. We don't attribute mistakes to human error. We view them as a starting point for an inquiry, not the end.

    Your Impact

    • You'll play a leading role in shaping the vision and strategy of our products, and continuously materialize this into high-level UX concepts to pixel-perfect visual designs.

    • You'll partner with our Product Management, Engineering, and Data Protection Advisory Teams to establish alignment and inspire our team with an actionable product vision.

    • You'll partner with our Product Management Team to design and conduct Human-Centered Design activities with customers and prospects.

    • You'll help cultivate a strong design culture at Aptible.

    Your Strengths

    • Product Design Experience: You have 2+ Years of experience as a Product Designer driving meaningful change for a product. You can design to constraints and develop a deep understanding of organizational context (e.g. team, timelines, business and customer needs).

    • Product Design Portfolio: Your portfolio demonstrates your experience at each stage of the user-centered design process, as well as strong Interaction and Visual Design.

    Our Benefits

    • Work from Anywhere: Enjoy the flexibility of working from home, a local co-working space, or your favorite coffee shop.

    • Open Vacation Policy: We encourage you to take the time you need, when you need it — for any holiday or matter of personal importance.

    • Paid Parental Leave: We offer job-protected Paid Time Off — 12 Weeks, Fully Paid — for all parents to bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child.

    • Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance: We offer comprehensive health care for employees, with 100% of premiums paid by Aptible.

    • Hardware & Software: We help you create your ideal office setup and provide any software you’ll need.

    • Company Travel: We come together in-person at least two to three times per year, in locations around the globe.

    For this role, we’re on the lookout for someone with a vested interest in helping other designers find their own groove. We named it “Design Lead” for a reason, and we invite you to take that literally. We do product design, so your comprehension of what it takes to get digital products out the door is our first non-negotiable. Beyond that, you’ve established yourself as someone people look up to, and you don’t take that privilege lightly. You’ll still deal in pixels, but you’ll also play an integral role in a project’s success with clear direction, leadership, guidance, and encouragement. You believe that good ideas can come from anywhere, and you actively support your team in making sure everyone is heard.


    Your Responsibilities

    • Guide the design process throughout the project, as well as dig into wires alongside your team.

    • Drive client presentations and discussions of your team’s work.

    • Respectfully decline the status quo and push both clients and colleagues outside their comfort zones.

    • Work with Producers and Client Partners to scope project requirements.

    • Help promote an inspiring and inclusive environment for the team.


    The Must-have Shortlist

    • 5+ years of product design experience at a digital product agency or consultancy, ideally in a lead role.

    • Demonstrated mastery of UI/UX principles, best practices, and common design tools (read: Sketch). Bonus points for interaction design skills (think After Effects, Quartz Composer or Framer.js).

    • A portfolio that reflects your strengths in both UX and visual design skills.

    • A natural inclination to take the lead and help everyone arrive at a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of the work.

    • Fluent in translating stakeholder goals, user research, and complex user flows into simple UIs.

    • Addicted to staying ahead of desktop and mobile best practices, developments and trends in web, mobile and iOS design.

    • Communication pro, with the ability to deliver compelling design rationales in both client and internal contexts.

    • Comfortable with ambiguity and client briefs that lead to more questions than answers.

    • Motivated by feedback, and by the opportunity to improve in your role, in the work, and in how you work together as a team.
