Startup Web Designer
We are looking for a web designer/developer to work with our team. The web designer’s primary contributions will be to:
- Read and interpret customer briefs. Our current customers are small and medium-sized businesses ranging from cafés to real estate investment firms.
- Given a new customer's content and preferences, as well as a website that has been automatically generated for the customer, use our Design Suite (a largely WYSIWYG website editor with support for custom HTML5/CSS overrides) to put an initial website together for the customer in 1-2 hours.
- Complete enhancement requests for existing customer websites, ranging from small changes to more complex customizations or design improvements.
- As a fast-growing platform, there will be adjacent opportunities as reviewers and mentors for the right candidates who wish to grow with us.
In our experience with past customers, designers spend single-digit numbers hours on each project, with iterative feedback from our team. You might intersperse multiple customers’ project delivery while waiting on design feedback from the customer and our design lead.
In addition to doing customer delivery work, you will be helping us co-design our Design Suite, as well as a workflow management tool called Orchestra. We have open sourced Orchestra, and are building it to empower creative and analytical experts in their work.
- We are open to remote or local NYC web designers
- You have excellent written English skills
- You have 3-7 years of web design experience and are excited to do customer-focused website deliver
- You have 1-2 years of HTML/CSS experience
- You are available ~ 10 hours a week
- You are comfortable turning unstructured customer content and requests into into pixel-perfect web designs that work on all devices
- You have experience working on customer-focused web design teams
- You are excited to receive feedback from a customer success manager or an art director, and are equally excited to push back on design decisions you disagree with
- You have desktop and mobile web design experience
- You are happy to work on a customer deliverable for a few hours at a time, and then move on to a different customer's deliverable
- You have some sample designs you can share with us so that we can evaluate your work
- You are excited to learn our Design Suite
- Don't fear
- We're flexible on the number of years of previous experience for this role. We highly favor talent and interest.
- Some candidates may see this list and feel discouraged because they don’t match all the items. Please apply anyway: there’s a good chance you’re more wonderful than you think you are.
- B12 is a safe place for human beings. We particularly encourage you to apply if you identify as a woman, are a person of color or other underrepresented minority, or are a member of the LGBTQ community
- Get paid for your expertise, we value the skills you bring as a designer.
- Grow within our community - join other designers in our network (we actively use Slack) and get feedback to help you grow.
- Shape the future of work - we highly value your input and working together we hope to design tools to change the way we work.
