Your responsibilities will include…

As a Senior Digital Designer, you’ll help lead our team with forward-thinking design. We want work that speaks to people. Big ideas that make people cock their heads and consider things in a new light. We want fresh designs—the kind that come from the heart and soul.

You’ll work with strategists, developers and other creatives from around the world to bring all that amazing work to people’s lives. You are the human touch in websites, apps, digital tools and products, campaigns and more.

You’ll report directly to the Creative Director and some specific responsibilities are:

  • Come up with concepts and designs that meet the objectives of the client and the brief (when there is one)
  • Collaborate with strategists, client directors, and developers
  • Design big sweeping experiences, and small interactions
  • Manage the day-to-day of your projects—there’s plenty of autonomy here but you have to be organized and proactive
  • Deliver work under deadlines and on budget
  • Present your work internally and in front of clients

We’re looking for someone who…

You know how to come up with a concept first, and details later. You know how to bring a great concept to life (even if it isn’t yours) and you know how to sell it. You care.

A few specifics include:

  • You’re a good person
  • You’re the type of person who is always ahead of the curve
  • You’re a divergent thinker who says “what if” often
  • 5 years of experience in graphic design
  • 3 years of experience in an agency setting
  • A strong understanding of design for web and mobile
  • A sparkling portfolio demonstrating big thinking and attention to detail
  • Experience working with big clients and small ones, too
  • Mastery of digital design tools such as Sketch and the Adobe Creative Suite

What you’ll get from us includes…

  • A laid back office and casual dress code
  • 25 days paid vacation
  • Company paid health insurance premiums
  • 401K match
  • Daily breakfast, drinks, and snacks
  • Growth and development opportunities
  • Possibilities for international travel
  • Brilliant colleagues from around the world
