We are looking for a highly skilled creative person who can guide our clients on UI/UX best practices. Someone who can listen intently to translate confusing, sometimes not so great feedback into something remarkable. Someone who can push through the noise and focus on designs that move people intuitively through a website. Someone who understands that the work we do here isn't always going to be glamorous or portfolio "worthy" or even beautiful...but will try their best to make the best of it.
In other words creating beautiful things is part of the job but sometimes making the logo bigger even when we know it's big enough is too. The point is we design for others, not ourselves, what we create isn't personal art—it drives business goals. If you are far enough in your career where you chuckled a bit because "you get it" then this might be the role for you. (we hope you read on).
There is an upside—you'll work with an incredibly talented team of good humans. We're not the kind of company who tuck our designers away and treat them like black sheep for being different—we like different—we embrace it. Not to make this weird, (but we are) being different is at the core of who we are.
Our website designers work closely with our website strategists, front-end developers and CMS specialists to create rich visual and interactive experiences that will help assist in our clients’ achieving their marketing goals. You would be designing beautiful, functional (mostly b2b) websites for some of the biggest companies in the world and also some of the smallest.
This role is largely UI focused. While we expect you to be familiar with UX best practices (and willing to grow in this area), this is a visual design role. You’ll spend your days in Figma obsessing over the right color palette and the perfect card shadow while defending the right for ample white space in every design. We expect to see a strong portfolio of real-world, non-student, non-group work.
If that doesn't intimidate you then you should apply.
We’re looking for candidates who:
- Have a creative eye, and aren't afraid to explore new ideas while following best practices for websites
- Have a passion for designing user-centric websites
- Are self-motivated and self-directed
- Have expert-level knowledge of UX/UI best practices

- Skilled at designing interactions based on best practices
- Have the ability to prioritize and execute tasks in a fast-paced environment
- Have strong written and verbal communication skills to regularly present ideas to clients & peers
- Have grit and the ability to take feedback constructively and professionally
- Have the ability to manage workload to ensure deadlines aren't missed by completing tasks on time
- Have a proven track record of managing multiple projects at once
- Have (ridiculous) attention to detail—like when something is a pixel off it bugs you
- Aligns with our core values: Integrity, Dedication, Empathy, Accountable, Strategic
- Is a darn good human
- 5+ years of on the job experience with some agency experience preferred
- No education requirements, however you need to be creative and show examples of original work (self-taught/natural talent encouraged to apply)
- UI/UX website design experience
- Basic understanding of front-end coding (coding not required)
- Experience with design systems
- Fluent with Figma
Nice-to-haves, but not required:
