Senior Designer

Job description

You’re a designer with big ideas, and an expert in UX. Startup culture excites you. Creativity drives you. Bad kerning really bums you out.


About the Role

Design at Redstamp is one of the vital roles within our company, we value designers who can think critically, voice their opinions clearly, and collaborate effectively. As the Senior Interactive Designer, you’ll offer guidance, direction, and encouragement while happily rolling up your sleeves and diving into the day-to-day creative work.


Redstamp’s Senior Interactive Designer is not only a talented artist but also extremely passionate and confident in their ability to inspire a team of designers as they grow towards their full potential. You’ll offer guidance, direction, and encouragement while happily rolling up your sleeves and diving into the day-to-day creative work.


A Day in The Life

  • Work directly on product and client projects with a team of 7-10 extremely talented creatives (including copywriters, conversion experts, developers, and other designers) to deliver elegant solutions to challenging design requests.

  • Act as a mentor for other members of the design team, helping them make the most of their talents.

  • Brainstorm and collaborate with the Creative Director and Design Leads to help shape the overall aesthetic of our agency.

  • Foster an open and inclusive culture with a strong emphasis on collaboration.

  • Work with project managers to scope out timelines and requirements of design projects.

Who’s Redstamp?

We’re a mix of entrepreneurs, tech geeks, innovators, and creatives—most of us are a little bit of each. Together, we’re a hybrid agency that specializes in high-conversion design for fast-growing technology companies. We value a true work/life balance where we do top-quality work while on the job, but have enough free time to pursue our outside interests.
