Sr. Designer

0 people like this description

This is a hands-on role, heading up all of our design and brand activities across the company. The right person for this role will have a very strong background in both on and offline graphic design, and will be a solid strategic thinker as well. They will have an outstanding eye and be a stickler for detail. Finally, they will be very interested in technology, and will not shy away from pushing themselves to learn and contribute more,

There are three key things that will define the right candidate for this role:

1. They are a strong executor, operating in a hands-on, “get stuff done” fashion

2. They are highly collaborative, thinking more about “working with” than “working for”

3. They are creative as well as metrics driven, focused on setting specific targets and goals and then consistently measuring progress towards achieving them

This role is based out downtown San Francisco and is NOT a regular telecommuting role (occasional work at home to get stuff done is fine).

You must have a portfolio of creative samples you can walk us through.
