\ Senior Designer

We are looking for a designer. Hang on, before you say “Great, I’m a designer and I want a new job” then skip to the bottom to see the salary, let us explain. Designer is a loaded word, sort of like… open relationship. Okay, that’s two words and we may have gone off course here so let’s start again.

This is not about plug-and-play mass production or retouching. Our definition of designer carries more weight. In addition to pixel-perfect technical execution, you also need to know how to come up with visual creative solutions, demonstrate strong design thinking, and impress with your motion design skills.

Alright, we know that was a lot of reading. We like your work ethic already. Now just give the rest of this job description a look and see if you want to bring that exceptional motion and design talent over to We Are Social. We’d love to have you on the team.
