Senior Designer

Good & Gold is currently looking for a Senior Designer in our Portland office. The ideal candidate is a talented visual designer with UX/UI expertise, capable of leading and growing a department focused on delivering considered, data-driven digital experiences.

About You…

Your approach to design is user-centric at its core, and you thrive in a multi-client, multi-disciplinary environment. You have high standards, but you play well with others, because you’re a problem-solver at heart. You can work either independently or collaboratively, modeling excellence while providing professional and creative structure—but you’re at your best working alongside a team of content creators, designers, strategists, and analysts. You’re a talented communicator, whether taking the lead in a client meeting or leading an internal critique, and you are hungry to grow beyond this job description.

Primary Responsibilities

Your responsibilities will break down into five general categories:

  1. Generate high-quality creative deliverables. As the leader of our design team, you will be ultimately responsible for conceptualizing, strategizing, and delivering creative assets for internal and external projects. These will include website sitemaps, wireframes, and prototypes, as well as email campaigns, banner ads, and social media assets.
  2. Create user-centric digital experiences. You will lead the charge on design initiatives end-to-end, spearheading research, solution-finding, and high-fidelity design, as well as preparing files for development handoff.
  3. Organize and allocate resources for the creative team. In an effort to support a growing design team, you will ensure the efficiency of internal workflows, allocate design resources effectively, and promote clear design guidelines, standards, and best practices.
  4. Attract and develop top creative talent. You will oversee hiring and employee development for the design team, ensuring that employees and contractors are meeting and exceeding expectations. As a part of this effort, you will develop, mentor, and support creative staff, inspiring others with talent, technique, and commitment to excellence.
  5. Grow the business. You’ll use your talents, insights, and leadership to explore new ideas and approaches that will help us evolve and improve as we continue to scale.
