Self-starting, quickly iterating and multi-tasking are in your DNA. On an ordinary day, you gracefully tackle everything from big-picture ideas — defining who we are, where we are going and how we’ll get there — to the nitty-gritty details of typography, readability, elegance and balance.

We aspire to work hard, dream big and reach for the stars. We are a rapidly growing, hand-selected team of designers, thinkers, developers, strategists poised for success.

If your goal as a designer is to focus on the objective and deliver beautiful results every time, then keep reading.

-Ability to concisely and clearly convey and debate your ideas with a multi-disciplinary team
-A passion for creating beautiful, user-centered designs with exceptional control over every last pixel
-An eye for layout, color and typography
-A master of tools. On any given day, you might work with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, and good old-fashioned pencil and paper.
-Conversational in HTML, CSS and other web languages. Although you won’t be coding, you will be interacting directly with our developers.
-Knowledge of motion graphics and sound design
-Entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to make a measurable impact as we grow rapidly
