Job Description:

Are you a designer with an obsession for precision, a fascination with data, and a desire to make the complicated approachable and understandable? Are you the best designer you know, but not a jerk about it? Are you always hunting for cool designs and animations, and want to collaborate with people who share your passion? If so, we should chat.


  • Create beautiful and engaging visual assets for new and existing applications
  • Develop compelling visual identities from the ground up for data visualizations, infographics, sites, communications, and applications
  • Define thoughtful, clear, intuitive UI systems
  • Collaborate with designers to develop and extend our design language
  • Collaborate with engineers to help make the branding easy to implement and understand
  • Bring fresh ideas and inspiration to a diverse team of creative personalities

Client Description:

Our national insurance industry client practices what it preaches, and has a strong health and wellness focus as part of their company culture. As a part of their organization, even as a freelancer, you can expect to be included in that culture!

What else can you expect from this organization?

  • As a congenial and collaborative culture, they’ll welcome you as an equal contributor, and value your opinion when it comes to creative and marketing project creation and delivery.

  • They’re fully committed to an Agile environment, adopting and utilizing standard Agile practices daily.

  • These folks are committed to getting it right, and as such, are quite focused on metrics and ROI. “Measure twice, cut once” is a common phrase that could possibly apply to their project teams. That’s why they value candidates with previous knowledge and experience in designing & managing to drive metrics, and have a keen eye for those with insurance industry experience.

    • Prior knowledge of and familiarity with industry acronyms is a plus.

  • This is very much a matrixed organization, so bring your A-game and communication skills! You’ll be networking with any number of stakeholders related to your creative and marketing projects.

  • Being a larger corporation, the meeting schedule is sometimes heavy. With a strong ability to stay organized and focused on your deliverable, you’ll thrive here!

Certain locations benefit from on-site fitness center facilities, Starbucks, and free parking. Our advice? Bring your walking shoes! Your day has a built in mini-workout. Parking in the CT facility tends to be a bit of a walk from the (very large!) main building, but that will make your fitness tracker happy!
