The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
Serving customers worldwide, this premier online advertising platform manages a wide array of display, social, mobile, and video advertising campaigns. As they go into 2022, they’re looking at a hearty amount of media-buying demand. In response, they need a skilled Digital Designer to join their team part-time and work with the internal marketing team stakeholders and external engineers to drive to a cohesive and collaborative design system strategy. One key responsibility will be overseeing this company’s entire design system and supporting their corporate website. Tasks will include designing, prototyping, and creating documentation for web design system components within Figma. You will carry out a variety of tasks including banners, landing pages, and web graphics. You will be responsible for designing, prototyping, and iterating elegant component solutions focused on solving stakeholder and agency partner needs. You’ll work closely with creative, content, and digital marketing teams to design brand/product campaigns and event landing pages. It will be up to you to maintain a component library within Figma, design system usage, and pattern documentation. You’ll also be tasked with onboarding and guiding stakeholders in design system usage and best practices. This is a hybrid freelance gig that will help you seriously boost your portfolio, get your foot in the door at a premier ad-tech company, and still have time to juggle all the other aspects of your life!
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You’ve got an amazing design sensibility. Ideally, you have some experience in graphic design and art direction as a foundation, but you’ve transitioned into UI and visual design. You have a Bachelor’s degree in art direction, design, or a related discipline, with 4+ years of experience designing responsive web products. You must have the following skills: graphic design, art direction, motion graphics, and web/email design. It’s a plus if you have familiarity with Illustration, data visualizations/infographics, and light experience with HTML. Strong skills in Adobe CS and Figma are required. It’s great if you have experience working with large-scale design systems and have an understanding of web accessibility and best design practices. Experience in creating and managing detailed component redlines and usage documentation is expected. Plus, you possess a strong understanding of component libraries. You thrive in a fast-paced, highly dynamic environment with multiple stakeholders.
This is a highly collaborative role that calls for a high degree of cross-functional work. You’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get the work done. Note: You MUST have a link to an online portfolio; you will not be considered without a portfolio website.
