  • Contribute to design compositions and visual content by creating simple illustrations, graphics and icons, manipulating screenshots or photos
  • Collaborate with other designers to maintain consistency in approaches and output
  • Pitch in on marketing design projects wherever needed

We’re excited about you because you have:

  • Significant experience designing high impact and beautiful digital solutions for SaaS, B2B, technical products/projects with thoughtful interactions, and smart use of content
  • Proficiency in user-centered design methods
  • Strong understanding of visual design principles and branding
  • Passion for solving problems from big picture strategy to the tiny details
  • Confidence to lead all aspects of the design process from conception to completion
  • Strong communication skills and a track record of effectively advocating for and evangelizing user-centered design
