  • Maintain a keen eye for evolving best practices and emerging trends

You Have
  • 3+ years experience including UX, interaction, and visual design
  • Fluency in Sketch, Photoshop, and Illustrator
  • A demonstrated ability to present and articulate multiple solutions for a given design challenge
  • A strong understanding of best practices and technical processes for web development
  • Experience working collaboratively with a small team of designers, developers, and strategists
  • Expert attention to detail and ability to manage shifting priorities on the fly
  • An online portfolio that demonstrates strong critical thinking and an excellent eye for visual design, including documentation illustrating your thought process behind a given project
  • An obsession with typography, layout, color, and all things interactive

You May Have
  • A degree in visual design or related field or equivalent education experience
  • Experience designing for WordPress and Shopify
  • Experience with content strategy
  • Experience with animation and logo design

Compensation
