  • Think strategically about digital communication, including user experience, interaction design and information architecture and explore new, innovative interactive approaches to tell our brand's story

  • Keep up to date on branding, marketing, advertising, and digital trends

  • Partner with other brand and product designers to unite the visual brand guidelines and create consistency across platforms

Who you are:

  • You have 5+ years of visual design and interaction design experience

  • You have a portfolio that demonstrates systematic thinking, sophisticated attention to detail, and a deep understanding of web & mobile design trends

  • You're focused on results and constantly looking for ways to make the consumer experience better by initiating feedback, assessing data, and designing options for A/B tests

  • You have a basic understanding of front-end development and mobile best practices

  • You're self motivated and a great communicator. You enjoy collaborating, whether it's hashing out briefs brainstorming initial design concepts or troubleshooting throughout the development process to find the best solution to any problem

  • You're an expert when it comes to using the Adobe Creative Suite and Sketch and familiar with prototyping tools like Invision or Framer

  • Experience working at product / software companies (nice to have)

We work hard, so we take care of each other and try to enjoy ourselves along the way. We have:

  • Premium medical, dental, and vision coverage with no employee contribution required

  • 12 weeks of paid parental leave

  • Catered meals on a weekly basis

  • Groups for skiing, biking, running, climbing, stretching, shuffleboard, darts, and more

Happy Interneting!
