We are searching for a motivated and multifaceted designer who enjoys working in a collaborative environment to create delightful user experiences. You will work with the design team in crafting designs and layouts for websites, web applications, mobile/tablet UI and occasionally branding. The designer will be responsible for bringing wireframes to life by crafting coherent visual design systems, improving on the actual experience by taking a user-centric approach on design and simplifying interactions with ease-of-use as your North Star. This position is for a 2 month contract (starting on January 2019) to full-time (if right fit), and is based in San Francisco. Only local candidates will be considered.
- Apply strategic thinking to design and deliver innovative end-to-end user experiences that optimize among user needs, business goals, and technological realities across web & mobile platforms.
- Generate production quality, high-definition files and assets to be shared with our developers' team for implementation. Furthermore, you will be responsible for lending your keen designer/detail-oriented eye to ensure staged (in production environment) work is as close to final designs as possible; if for some reason parts of a design are irreproducible, you'll work hand-in-hand with our developers to find solutions (and gather and apply that learning for future projects).
- Conduct design-related research for projects and condense your key findings on action-oriented presentations, including images, relevant links and resources
- Additionally, you will aid in and, when required, take a leadership role on incremental work for some of our staples accounts.
- Create style guides for clients' products and services that other designers can utilize and follow.
- Be accountable for tracking your hours and performed tasks for every project you work on.
- A BFA in design
- 3-5 years of relevant digital/visual design experience
- Proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator and experience design tools like Adobe XD/Sketch
- Excellent layout and typographic skills
- Strong portfolio and work samples
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Strong understanding of usability and user-centered design practices
- Passion for emerging technologies and hunger to innovate
- Self-starter, detail-oriented, dependable and able to work within tight deadlines
- Have a "can do" attitude and be interested in doing whatever it takes to get the job done right which may involve long hours from time to time
