  • Collaborating with team members in discovery/strategy phases of the design process to shape a design brief. 
  • Generating wireframes (low fidelity, high fidelity, and visual design) and prototypes to achieve team alignment.
  • Working with engineers both internally and externally to develop projects.

Qualifications Include:

  • 8+ years designing experiences across multiple platforms.
  • Strong knowledge of interaction design principles and well-developed skills in creation and documentation (business requirements, interface design, functional specifications, persona work, component design, and information architecture).
  • Highly collaborative and resourceful with excellent communication skills.
    Must be able to articulate, annotate, and present the logic underlying proposed designs.
  • Experience with digital editorial design is a plus.
  • Recognizes the importance of goal-centered design principles. 
  • Strong comfort level with iterative design processes.
  • Excellent organizational skills and strong attention to detail. 
  • Demonstrated fluency with tools such as Sketch, Zeplin, InVision, Photoshop, and Illustrator, and a familiarity with prototyping tools such as Principle. 
  • Ability to delegate to junior designers, manage projects in conjunction with the project manager, work under pressure and on tight deadlines, be mindful of project scopes and budget.
  • Experience designing front-end and back-end CMS workflows a plus.
  • Please share a link to an online portfolio showcasing relevant client work. (Include passwords if needed.)
