Location: Remote - Americas (This is a freelance/contract opportunity, open to applicants located in U.S. aligned time zones.) 

As a Contract Lead Visual Designer at 10up, you’ll work collaboratively alongside our Content and UX Design teams, and will lead UI design - expanding your portfolio - on award-winning, enterprise-level digital experiences. 

You’ll supplement and partner with our internal design teams on a combination of unique, challenging projects and ongoing support engagements. As a leading digital agency, 10up’s client roster spans from innovative startups and impactful non-profits, to some of the biggest names in the industry, such as ESPN, Google, The New York Times Co., Microsoft, and The Nobel Prize Committee.

Intentionally remote since day one, spanning six continents and 40 countries, 10up fully embraces the benefits of distributed work.

What you will do:

  • Provide expert-level visual design strategy, leadership and execution across 3-4 projects at a time - including workshops, mood boards, defining design systems, and design direction. 
  • Have ownership of design expertise within client relationships - including responsibility to present design solutions and communicating design decisions and their rationale; anchoring design in the goals of the site.
  • Define design strategies and plan for ideal project outcomes alongside the PM and Accounts team.
  • Collaborate with user experience designers on wireframes, sitemaps, and page level interactions, as well as with front end engineers on interactive prototypes and production-ready web experiences.
  • Coordinate and oversee the work of production visual designers, fostering an environment of psychologically safe collaboration and critique.

About you:

  • You have 7+ years experience with responsive enterprise-level web and mobile design; including a solid understanding of the web as a medium and what it means to realize designs in a multi-device world.
  • You can present a demonstrated portfolio of compelling, engaging, large-scale web design solutions, and an ability to define what makes them successful.
  • You are experienced in creating unique designs from scratch, not just designing to a template. You know how to work within brand guidelines, while simultaneously pushing the boundaries to enhance the brand. 
  • You’ve designed for WordPress as a platform beyond typical “blog” use cases - such as migrating or building large-scale WordPress (or similar CMSs) websites using the block based “Gutenberg” editor.
  • You have a collaborative, self-motivated, "always-learning" spirit, interested in identifying and solving the web’s design challenges one experience at a time.
  • You love working within Figma, Miro and other remote collaboration design tools. 
Join our team!
