The Team:
This is a specialized team that includes designers, researchers, writers, and product managers, focused on developing innovative channels to buy new ad inventory for our customers. Our job is to make the buying of ads awesome, to help redefine what a good ad experience should be, and build products that inspire, delight, and make us all proud.

  • Communicate design intent to stakeholders. 
  • Clearly rationalize and justify design work and advocate for users’ needs. 
  • Collaborate effectively on a team and be willing to explore all options. 
  • Design is grounded in constraints, which serve as boundaries to work within and barriers to creatively overcome. 
  • The craft is knowing when to conform and when to push the edge. 
  • Work closely with user researchers to better inform designs through users’ point of view. 
  • Deliver the designs for each release by following through on details with the Engineering team and driving fit-and-finish polish.

Skill/Experience/Education:
Mandatory:

  • BA/BS degree in Design (e.g. interaction, graphic, visual communications, product, industrial), Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Science (CS), or a related field

  • Excellent critical thinking and communication skills 
  • Ability to follow existing design guidelines to create design patterns 
  • Experience working with user research and applying it into your design 
  • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and work under ambitious timeframes in a fast paced, high-pressure environment

Desired:

  • Experience with data-driven decision making and building enterprise tools.
  • Experience with animation and prototyping: After-Effects, Camtasia, InVision 
  • Web development experience: HTML, CSS and Javascript 
  • Understanding of technical requirements, technical constraints, and limitations as they apply to designing for platforms such as desktop and mobile, Android and iOS.

  • Experience in designing usable mobile interfaces from pre- to post-launch.
  • Tactical hands on design capabilities + ability to present solutions aligned to strategic goals
