Description

  • Help create, maintain, and evangelize our nascent design system and style guide
  • Aid the product managers in writing functional specs for the dev team
  • Manage and execute multiple projects simultaneously
  • Identify and deliver continuous improvements to process and systems


Ideal candidates will:

  • Be both collaborative, flexible and tenacious in service of making the work the best it can be
  • Have a portfolio that showcases their expertise in all of the above areas
  • Have designed for both desktop and mobile and be passionate about both
  • Have the skills to use all the most current design programs for wireframes, prototypes and final design when necessary (ex. Sketch, inVision, Adobe CS, etc.)
  • Understand the process of digital product design, its possibilities and limitations
  • Be able to work independently, manage multiple projects, and hit deadlines consistently
  • Have experience designing for children (a plus)
