Company Profile

Opportunity Snapshot:

In this unique role you will be able to make a difference at one of the world's leading eCommerce sites focused on Health and Wellness as you provide ideas and concepts and then help bring them to life. Leveraging your aesthetic sense and ability to think temporally, you will provide high-level concepts that tell engaging stories, and help execute the web team's vision.

 

You will expand your skills and experience in enterprise-level web and mobile platforms as you work with multiple brands and hundreds of products. We foster an open, energizing and collaborative environment and our team is made up of passionate professionals who deliver to high standards but also have fun in the process. While interactive is a strategic driving force in our organization, our Web Design team is relatively small, so your successes will be noticed.

Overview

To be a good fit for this opportunity you will have:

  • A portfolio that demonstrates your ability to:
    • Create clean, modern designs incorporating clear visual hierarchy, readability and good use of color, fonts, space, etc.
    • Bring a concept to life.
    • Overcome design challenges such as limited space.
    • Produce consistent high quality across diverse projects.
  • At least two years of hands-on design experience in the interactive space (while technical / development skills are desirable, this role calls for a dedicated design professional).
  • Experience designing cross-browser and cross-platform compatible solutions.
  • Expertise in the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) as well as the ability to sketch layouts and concepts quickly by hand.
  • Knowledge of web technologies such as HTML or CSS a plus.
  • Sharp conceptual skills and the ability to think temporally, tell a story, and execute the web team's vision using whatever tool is required.
  • The ability to work with sitemaps, user flows, wireframes and other information design documents.

Responsibilities

Just as important as your experience and skills will be the following characteristics and competencies:

  • A collaborative approach and willingness to engage in an environment of active idea sharing.
  • Sharp organizational skills and the ability to multi-task in a fast paced environment.
  • The ability to produce consistent quality under deadline pressure while paying careful attention to detail.
  • Self-motivation and a strong sense of ownership and accountability.

Experience with the following is preferred but not required:

  • JavaScript and JavaScript frameworks such as jQuery or Prototype.
  • Video, 3D, compression and Internet media delivery.

We are very particular about our branding and the appearance of our digital presence, and your primary mission will be to ensure exceptional visual impact. At the same time, we'll look to you to help facilitate the transition from concept to final development. Those who thrive on the Web team have the flexibility and skillsets to move in any direction required to engage the user, whether that means creating a whole new look or learning new tools and technologies. During the creative process, you'll have opportunities to advance your own ideas, and you'll also need to be open to the ideas of others; once the team selects a direction, you'll need to be on board, whether it is based on your idea or not.In addition, in order to be an outstanding Web Graphic Designer, you will:

  • Stay current on web trends, emerging design issues and best practices.
  • Be passionate about design and accept nothing but the best.
  • Combine clear, conceptual thinking with a bit of flair.
  • Keep a constant eye out for areas to innovate and processes that can be improved.
  • Share in our mission of "Enhancing Lives."

 

Reporting to the Design Manager, you will join a team that also includes the Vice President of Web Marketing, several Web Visual Designers at various experience levels, Content Managers, Web Product Managers, a UI / UX Engineer, Analyst and a few interns. This team works very closely with our team of Web Developers.
