You will:

  • Partner with product owners to help define information architecture and tell the right stories
  • Have 5+ years of relevant web design experience—ideally at a tech-forward, product-driven company
  • Design with an understanding of the formal principles of design: typography, layout, balance and proportions
  • Be able to navigate and understand a componentized Pattern Library, and think within that library to help extrapolate and extend its shared patterns and behaviors
  • Work within scrum/agile methodologies
  • Have experience designing marketing websites, or content management online experiences
  • Sometimes design with very broadly defined, loose concepts, and sometimes on narrowly defined, tactical deliverables
  • Be an expert in UI, UX, or visual design

Things we value in a candidate:

  • Solid work ethic - you are motivated to learn, and work independently
  • Dependability - you meet deadlines consistently, and can communicate roadblocks
  • Problem solver - you can figure out random code bugs, or complex grid layouts
  • Passion - you enjoy what you do, and getting to work with new technology
  • Drive - you take the lead, and generate new ideas/concepts
  • Good communication - you can document your work, and keep others informed about your tasks

Your daily job looks like:

  • Take provided requirements, and build out wireframes
  • Explain your work, process and decisions to stakeholders
  • Collaborate closely with design-developers and engineers to shape your work
  • Participating in team design critiques

You might work on:

  • Web Administrative Portal – the platform that WebstaurantStore uses to manage the products, pricing, services and other customer related material for Websaurantstore.com.
  • Webstaurantstore.com - the website of the leading distributor of restaurant supplies and equipment.
  • Briefcase – the customer service platform used by WebstaurantStore to communicate with customers

What’s in it for you:

  • We will help you focus on what you do best and give you the opportunities to grow into the role that you will be most successful in. An annual education reimbursement will help you on your journey.
  • Flexible work schedule. Work the hours that make sense for you.
  • Work remote, semi-remote, or work in the office. How do you work best?
  • Dog friendly office. Bring your best friend with you.
  • Take a break during the day, and use the onsite fitness center

Benefits:

  • Annual bonuses
  • Medical, dental and vision insurance
  • 401(k) up to a 10% employee contribution
  • Paid time off
  • Paid maternity leave

What does our hiring process look like:

  1. A phone interview with a Team Manager to chat about the company, position, and most importantly, learn more about you. Our goal is to see if we're a match.
  2. If we feel that you could be a match, we will contact you to schedule the next interview, or let you know if we feel that you aren't a good fit.
  3. The next interview will involve all Team Managers, and the Director of Design. We could ask you general questions about design to test your understanding of design principles, or have you review a case study on your portfolio. Additionally, we will be reviewing your communication skills, and how well you align with our core values.
  4. Last, we will either make you an offer, or let you know if we feel that you aren't a good fit.
