Lead Designer

We’re on a mission to elevate the careers and livelihoods of millions of blue collar professionals, artisans, and other informal workers through the use of technology. Join us. 

You:

As a Senior designer you will bring Lynk to life through beautiful and inspiring visuals across a variety of platforms. In addition to being a terrific designer, you also have the capability to take a project from idea all the way to execution. Most of all, you’re inspired rather than intimidated when looking at a blank slate and are capable of creating beauty and structure out of nothing. 

You’ll be responsible for:
 

  • Building the brand and design principles that will be applied to all of our creatives
  • Leading or overseeing all customer facing visual communications
  • Thinking holistically about design - maintaining the connection between short term projects and the long term vision of our company
  • Participating in executive strategy/product meetings and bringing ideas to life
  • Carrying work from the point of sketch all the way to a final design
  • Creating required designs for both the engineering team and the sales/marketing team
  • Recruiting other designers to the team as needed to meet company goals


Successful candidates will have all or most of these qualifications: 
 

  • A degree in design or a related field
  • 4+ years of related work experience
  • Experience creating - wireframes, mocks, storyboards, sitemaps, user flows
  • A desire to put the user first, making sure that all of our designs, products, and collateral is as easy to understand as it is beautiful.
  • Strong portfolio demonstrating their work
  • Proficiency in photoshop, illustrator or other visual design tools
  • Show why they are suited for this position, rather than just tell us
