Your Role

You’ll start each day collaborating with multiple teams to understand responsibilities, identify any issues, and communicate priorities. Reporting to our Product Manager, the UX/UI Designer will be detail-oriented, obsessed with pixel perfection, and able to participate in the conceptual development and delivery of cross-platform, end-to-end experiences within a collaborative team environment. The UX/UI Designer will lead creative direction and collaborate with marketing, technology, and creative teams to design compelling marketing campaigns and visually engaging and intuitive website interfaces that evoke our brand and inspire potential customers.

You have experience measuring product effectiveness, reporting outcomes, and driving priorities. You’ll speak to internal and external stakeholders to communicate and defend ideas while answering critical questions.

What else will you do as a UX\UI Designer?

  • Establish a UX/UI design system, process, and methodology.
  • Create a unified style guide for digital products in collaboration with the creative director and marketing.
  • Conduct user research, design concept testing, and analysis to ensure optimal UX and UI for our target audiences.
