We're Looking For Someone Who
Is a designer with 5+ years of experience designing websites (mostly eCommerce) and is proficient in Figma.
Is seeking a leadership role within a quickly growing creative agency and loves to collaborate with strategists and designers.
Loves bringing brands to life through visually appealing and conversion minded website design.
Has an understanding of UX best practice and enjoys paroozing the internet for inspiration on layouts and conversion ideas.
Has the ability to design in a range of styles, pays close attention to detail and is proactive.
Enjoys working remotely; if located in NYC, we would love for you to come into the office 4x per month for brainstorms, project briefs or to work from here when you please; if you are not located nearby we can do all of this over video calls.
You will be responsible for designing websites that follow UX best practice according to the brand guidelines provided to you by our Creative Director. Here’s what the typical project flow looks like: every project is quite collaborative and begins with a series of planning sessions where you will learn and brainstorm with the larger creative team. Once the brand guidelines and website goals are finalized it’s your time to shine by designing the website end to end. A Junior Designer will join our team in the coming months who you will have the option to manage and utilize as a resource as you see fit! You will take ownership over the creation of a variety of website styles therefore you must have a great eye, clean aesthetic and proper understanding of UX best practice across desktop and mobile.
A's To Your Q's
What deliverables will I be responsible for? You will be responsible for designing websites (desktop and mobile), most of which are eCommerce sites for consumer facing brands. As part of this you will need to understand how to translate goals into effective user experiences while scaling out the brand guidelines provided to you.
What type of direction will I receive? You will have the level of support you need when you need it - and it's a bit different for everyone. To start you will have the support of our Creative Director, Brand Designer and Director of Strategy - who are going to show you the ropes, brief you on projects and assist you from a strategic and design perspective - they are great teachers, phenomenal teammates and a total pleasure to work with.
What platforms will I be using? Just like milk and cookies, Figma and Asana go hand in hand in our world.
I'm proficient in XD or Sketch, but not Figma specifically, is that ok? As long as you are down to transition to Figma that’s fine with us given how similar they are.
How do I communicate with team members? However you want. We have a standing weekly call to go over scheduling, handle a lot of communications via Asana and have video / old fashioned calls as needed. We also have project specific calls or meetings that typically begin with an internal briefing and pre-kick off brainstorm session.
Am I managing anyone? Not immediately, but in the coming months we plan to hire a Junior Designer who you will have the option to manage and assign tasks to as you see fit.
Where do I work from? Remotely (we provide provide a coworking stipend). We currently have a gorgeous homebase at SohoWorks by Soho House in Meatpacking that we would love to use to meet about 4x per month as a team however this is not required if you do not live in the NYC area. Tbh, we really miss working together in person so at some point we would love for the NYC team to work out of this space 2x per week but there is no immediate plan to do so.
What does this j-o-b pay? Salary is competitive and commensurates with creative capabilities and experience. We’re open to taking a leap of faith on talent with high potential and also open to hiring a more seasoned applicant
Benefits? 28 days of paid time off (14 holidays + 14 vacation / personal). Health benefits. Coworking stipend or membership to Soho Works. Quarterly training and learning opportunities. Annual team offsite. Gifts and goodies that align with research and clients (Bala bangles, skincare products, tequila, etc.). A positive, inspiring work experience - we believe in flexibility, normal working hours and a happy, supportive work environment.
