  • Apply design methodologies with qualitative and quantitative data to inform design decisions that solve key business problems.

  • Accommodate other interdepartmental design requests and perform related duties as assigned.


  • 3+ years of relevant web design experience, ideally at a tech-forward company.
  • Wide-ranging portfolio of visual and web design work living in production, with a pinch of print design.
  • Expertise in Adobe Creative Suite, HTML/CSS, and prototyping tools.
  • Deep understanding of layout, typography, color theory, visual hierarchy, iconography.
  • Effective visual and written communicator.
  • Highly organized with an ability to adapt quickly to changing priorities and initiatives.
  • Experience navigating at least one major rebrand is a plus.
