remote

Overview

Our client, a startup from Germany is looking for a Lead designer, one that loves to create websites that make people wow, while also helping their clients hit their marketing goals. As a Lead Designer, you will lead and mentor your team, so they do the best work of their careers.

 

Who you are

You are a great designer, you have experience making amazing stuff and are ready to take the next step in your career: lead, grow, and build a team of extraordinarily talented designers. That doesn’t mean that you don’t like to do stuff, after all creating is part of who you are.

  • You’ve spent a few years at a digital agency creating websites

  • You can read what clients want even before they do. Magic? Empathy? A little bit of both.

  • You love working with clients. When clients come with problems, you give them solutions.

  • You love to learn and to teach others. You help your colleagues grow and become better versions of themselves.

  • You are never muted on a call

  • You love designing websites, way more than products

  • Figma? Check.

  • You can create (animated) prototypes to show your ideas

  • You understand interactions and animations, and you use them purposely.

  • Webflow? That would be great, as everything we do is built in Webflow. Although, we don’t expect you to touch it. We have developers to develop, and designers to design.

  • You speak English, fluently (or closely) - as our company language is English we also support non-native speakers with 1:1 classes.

 

What you'll do

As a Lead Designer, you will run a team of super talented designers. You will be responsible for the quality of their projects and help create websites that make people wow. You will lead your team, define processes and tools. You will also help recruit new members for your team, work directly with clients, and stay on track with budget and timeline.

  • Motivate, train & encourage the design team

  • Participate in the identification, recruitment, and onboarding of new designers

  • Provide feedback and performance reviews for the design team

  • Plan & Implement Design Process, Methodologies, Libraries, tools, etc.

  • Collaborate with Marketing & Sales Team
