Are you a design specialist with a passion to help others matter more? We’ve got a sweet maternity leave replacement gig, with potential for full-time upon completion!
An integral part of project teams, the designer is responsible for the creation of functional, beautiful and persuasive design positions that give meaning, a voice and visual identity to brands and products. This role is key to helping to solve meaningful problems through interface, web, app, print, and whatever comes next - design. This includes a strong understanding of design theory and the practical tools to get things done, as well as the ability to work across disciplines (research, strategy, digital design, + design related coding skills are a bonus). Consistent and effective communication skills, including the ability to make a strong case for design and the ability to help the team understand when what they’re asking for could be so much better -- pointing to a cooler, faster, persuasive and more cost effective route to awesome.
We work in the downtown core, with the best restaurants and shops only steps away; Healthy lunches, snacks and other goodies are free and plentiful, Modern displays, Mac hardware, stand-up desks and ergonomic space chairs are the office standard; We listen to bad [ass] music, but drink good tea, coffee, kombucha (on tap), whisky & wine; We have a culture coach and we take that action seriously.
Outline why you and your design chops matter and fire it off here. Persuasive is good. Almost everything else is bad. Include a link to a portfolio of your previous work. That said, we’re just as interested in how you think as we are in your finished product. Have any other unique creative skills that you bring to the table? We want to know about them, don’t be afraid to share what sets you apart.
Please apply on or before February 14 2019.
