Job Description:

This team conducts global research to uncover deep, human-centered insights about people and technology in emerging markets. We then go on to build tools and experiences for teams at this company to implement and internalize those insights into meaningful product changes. We are a small, nimble team of researchers, designers and storytellers whose goal is to change the way the company thinks about key populations that are often misunderstood. 

As a Communications Designer, you will be responsible for taking a variety of content such as qualitative research insights, survey data, and program updates, tools,  and crafting them into compelling, engaging, and memorable narratives aimed at audiences ranging from product teams to executives. You will leverage established templates, patterns and other ready-to-use assets, as well as create new presentations, documents, artifacts etc.

  • Recommend and implement new strategies and presentation materials for communicating to our peers and varying levels of stakeholders from cross-functional partners to senior leadership.
  • Effectively manage and prioritize multiple parallel workstreams of varying scope (i.e. near-term presentations as well as longer term deliverables like a website)

One billion new people are coming online over the next few years, and India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Brazil, Mexico, and Egypt are at the forefront of this transformation. This team is building a series of new products that will serve these users and solve their biggest needs.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Visual design that demonstrates stylistic range and production quality detail.

  • Examples of illustrations, data visualizations, and/or animations.
  • Examples of web/mobile web design compositions that are considerate of UI visual systems, hierarchy, and usability.
  • Experience working closely with UX and product management teams in the tech industry.
  • Ability to work independently as well as collaborate with teammates in an iterative design process, proactively sharing work of all fidelities

Client Description:

One thing we know is that this client, as big as it is, is still setting the standard for not only the product they’re turning out, but for the way they conduct business.

Our client is the global leader in technology, with offices in many major cities. As different as those cities are, you can expect that the personality of each office is the same. Commonalities include bringing people together in the physical work space, outlets for creativity (outside work-related exercises), and a setup for brainstorming on the fly, whenever the opportunity strikes.

What they see in your resume, if you’re selected, is your ability to be an autonomous thinker, and a team player; someone focused, and driven to push the envelope who can also let down their guard and have fun with the team while doing it; someone who has the intellectual capacity to challenge even the most innovative thinkers without the hubris that tends to accompany it. No egos here!

Here, everyone is considered a project owner, and expected to give 100%, even when the path forward isn’t necessarily clear.

Work here, and know you’re working with a Forbes #1 rated company.

Work here, and know you’re setting the pace for digital products globally.

Work here, and find the challenge of your career!

And in case you’re afraid you won’t have time for other things, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • Fitness center access

  • Discounts on things like dry cleaning and oil changes

  • Free lunches

  • Convenient commuter shuttles
