Description

Make confident, creative decisions for the world’s most amazing companies.

You are passionate about design and people. You are a design leader with a deep vertical skill set — whether code, visual design, or design research. You are ready to level-up your career and take on more responsibilities, influencing design and mentoring others through difficult design decisions.

We're a close-knit team of driven product designers, engineers and advocates who believe in rapid prototyping, customer advocacy and and experience design. We've been around since 1998, creating world-class products that hundreds of millions of people actually use. We need your help to build better products and services that solve problems and meet our clients needs. We work with the most progressive technology companies in the world.

Your typical day at ZURB would involve working closely with designers and advocates on client projects, teaching Progressive Design and how to move projects through it. We have a variety of projects that we specialize in and how we create magic.

You’ll work on amazing innovation projects, with companies like Mozilla or Netflix, to drive the next phase of growth in the company. You’ll define the product feature direction for internet companies like McAfee, eBay or SAP, driving change across the organization. You’ll build the first prototypes for successful startups like Palantir or 23andMe, or help companies like MobileIron or Coupons.com go public. Sometimes you’ll jump into the details to help companies create millions of dollars of lift in signups or shopping carts with customers, like Tailored Brands or Keap. You’ll work with companies like Facebook to build the infrastructure to scale the business.

The best part of your day? In every project you will work on, the customer and user is our focus. We use our platform Helio to gain design insights from huge quantities of data. In everything we do at ZURB we use hunches, questions, and observations on user data to build confidence in our decision making. It’s a great feeling when you land on a direction with your work backed up by data from tens of thousands of people who will end up using your designs.

You’ll build confidence and trust in design decisions by backing it up with user feedback and insights gained through Helio. You'll use your core skills to influence other designers on the team, drive projects forward and coaching your teammates toward wins.
