Reason One is in search of a talented designer with creativity, digital experience, and a drive to create inclusive, user-centric web experiences in a collaborative environment.

This is the role for you if you are looking to join a purpose-driven agency on a mission to help those who do good, do better. We actively seek ways to improve our world, both by intentionally partnering with purpose-driven brands and organizations and engaging in continuous improvement of our own standards, practices, and social impact.

At Reason One we aim to create a diverse and inclusive environment where every team member feels comfortable bringing their true self to work every day.

Your role

At Reason One, our Design Leads provide design leadership on web site and web application projects, working closely with strategists, content creators, and developers in an agile process. You’ll put your experience and ideas to work every day, tackling the emotional and functional sides of interaction design for a wide range of clients. You'll also contribute to sales and scoping, and confidently present your work to clients.

Our must haves

  • 5-7 years of interaction design experience in a digital agency setting
  • Proficiency with FIGMA, Sketch, and Adobe Creative Suite
  • Ability to translate project strategy and client needs into insightful design concepts
  • Keen knowledge of digital best practices and current trends
  • Experience with design systems and modular design
  • Experience creating inclusive, accessible UX/UI—you believe the web is for everyone, you know what WCAG stands for and how to measure the accessibility of your work
  • Experience as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • Able to accept and provide thoughtful feedback and strong ideas
  • Strong communication skills both written and verbal. You need to be able to convey the story of the user journey and communicate how a design solves a particular business problem or need—with other designers, content strategists, developers, and clients
  • You view constraints as a critical part of the creative process and solving problems
  • A keen desire to learn, grow your knowledge, and play with new tools and processes
  • You must provide an online portfolio with details about your specific role and contributions. We want to see what you’ve got!
