As our new Senior Web Designer, you will be deeply involved in our strategy process helping to gather valuable client and audience insights that inform the creation of detailed user experiences expressed as wireframes.

And you'll be doing it for some exciting and meaningful clients who want to push boundaries, including the Red Cross, Wilderness Society, Bloomberg, RCN, Georgetown University and more.

  • Curious. You’re constantly seeking out new techniques and approaches to advance your skills.
  • Friendly. You’re a people person who enjoys collaborating and works well with others.

Requirements

We don't necessarily care how long you've been doing web design; more important is the passion and talent you bring to the table. With that said, it would be nice if you have the following experience:

  • You have been UX and web design this for 5+ years and can hit the ground running.
  • You maintain your own website portfolio with a large collection of inspiring work samples.
  • You have the ability to design in a variety of styles, and execute unique-yet-functional solutions to websites’ most common problems.
  • You can create elegant mobile, responsive designs
