What We’re Looking For

As a user interface designer, you get excited about solving complex design challenges in a collaborative team environment. UI design is not just a job, it’s your passion. You advocate strongly for user needs while balancing business goals. You are on a mission to create experiences that are as intuitive as they are delightful. To truly create exceptional experiences, you also understand the importance of content and brand story development. All in all, you work well with others, have a sense of humor, and know how to keep the momentum going throughout a project.

What You’ll Do

  • Take a leadership role in the entire design process. Successfully blend strategically-defined business objectives with a brand-oriented visual aesthetic.
  • Develop relationships with clients. Establish yourself as an expert and trusted advisor. Lead client presentations, convey ideas succinctly and deliver strategic recommendations with confidence.
  • Mentor and coach other team members. Review the work of others and provide meaningful feedback.
  • Work with other subject matter experts. Collaborate with an in-house team of strategists, developers, project managers and marketers to take designs from initial concept to finished product. While this position does not require any CSS/HTML programming, you’ll be responsible for communicating desired UI/UX functionality to developers.
  • Participate in new business conversations.  Help to define and adhere to project scope for current and prospective work.
  • Maintain best practices. Ensure that protocols are being followed.  Evolve processes, offerings, deliverable formats and when you see opportunities to make improvements.


  • At least seven years of agency experience as a UI Designer, UX Designer, Design Lead, or comparable role. 
  • Expert command of Sketch and the Adobe Suite of design products - particularly Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.  You are obsessed with best practices and keep your files tidy.
  • Expertise with Invision, Principle or similar prototyping tools.
  • A strong design portfolio with a focus on UI/UX design. 
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Exceptional communication and organizational skills. You must be able to effectively communicate project goals and articulate the ideas behind the work we produce.
  • The ability to command a meeting or phone call and establish a rapport with clients.
  • An understanding of integrated digital marketing and its various components.
  • Working knowledge of Content Management Systems like WordPress and Drupal.
  • Experience working collaboratively with other designers, strategists, developers, project managers and marketers.

Benefits and Perks

  • Paid Time Off. Receive generous paid vacation benefits that increase as you advance.
  • 401K + Match. 401K plan with 4% employer match after one year of employment.
  • Life Insurance Benefit. Coverage to ensure peace of mind for your family.
