Say hello

Vert’s Interactive Team is looking for a creative, strategic thinker with a background in seeing web projects from conception to launch to join us as a UX/UI Designer.

Do you have (learned) design ‘instincts’ around typography, layout hierarchy and interaction design that enable you to quickly create flexible and usable web interfaces? Do you design with patterns and think ‘atoms, molecules and organisms’ are not simply biology terms? Have you spent time trying to find a way to explain Usability Heuristics to clients and internal team members? Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with an idea on how to leverage Figma auto-layout or variables? Do you actually ‘love’ collaborating with (good) developers to bring experiences you design to life, and can speak their language? This may be your dream job.

What You’ll Do:

  • Interpret qualitative and quantitative data to create low and high-fidelity wireframes for native apps, website and landing page layouts
  • Build design libraries with flexible, usable and accessible web elements
  • Be our in-house Figma ‘expert’ and help to lead the practice of building usable prototypes for internal and external stakeholders
  • Work with our Analytics and Strategy teams to build discovery presentations on UX initiatives
  • Work with internal and external Creative teams to ensure we design experiences that bring the brand to life on the screen
  • Work with our Development team on scoping requirements and translating these in a scalable way in design decisions
  • Constantly seek out areas to test and optimize what you design

What You’ll Need:

  • 4+ years of strong relevant experience
  • A strong portfolio demonstrating your skills in web layout and UI design that features full projects taken from wireframe through development, not just a handful of pretty hero screenshots
  • Ability to speak to clients and internal stakeholders to present our POV on design solutions and options
  • Strategic experience. You will help to manage and shape the design roadmap, communicating with stakeholders on a continuous basis to shape its direction
  • Experience with design systems
  • An understanding of CSS and front-end technology
  • Knowledge of technical (UX/UI) design
  • Ability to manage multiple stakeholders across functional disciplines
  • Ability to effectively manage multiple projects within specific deadlines and creative parameters – you know how to think independently and problem solve
  • Deep understanding of the tools of the trade: Figma, Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects, Framer, Webflow, Lottie, etc…
  • Previous experience in graphic design, branding and art direction preferred
  • Experience with CMS (specifically WordPress) implementation preferred

You’re Right For This Role If You Have:

  • Comfort in complexity. You can think about the big picture while being attentive to detail
  • Strong conceptual and strategic thinking skills
  • The ability to concept, present and execute. Act as an exemplary representative of the experience team with internal partners and external vendors with the ability to interact comfortably with senior leadership
  • The ability to provide creative solutions consistent with industry trends, demonstrating ability to problem-solve, organize and project manage
  • The ability to translate complex information into easy-to-understand designs and visual elements
  • Excellent communication skills. You can articulate and defend design decisions to diverse stakeholders and customers in plain English

This role sits on the Interactive team and reports to the Vice President, Interactive. The salary range for this role is $75,000-90,000.

If you are excited about this role but don’t have all of the qualifications, we encourage you to apply! We hire people, not resumes, and don’t want one line in a job description to prevent us from finding the next valuable addition to our team.
