Motley is looking for a Lead Visual Designer

As a Lead Visual Designer at Motley, you’ll take responsibility in company level development of our design capabilities and offering. We are looking for a person who knows how to work both with other designers and clients. Strong background in everyday design work is the starting point of your work. You will participate in sales and internal development to strengthen Motley’s capabilities to offer design as a tool to solve complex business problems. You’ll also work as a senior designer in projects.

You’ll develop the ways how we create digital products and services for leading consumer brands and industrial companies. You’ll take the responsibility in directing the design work of projects, executing design work with high ambition level, leading the design processes, and conceptualising the functionalities of services with the rest of the team.

What you’ll do

  • Develop the quality and capabilities of Motley’s digital design work
  • Plan the projects and workflows, and participate in sales
  • Show and lead direction for digital design
  • Collaborate in balancing user desirability, business viability, and technical feasibility
  • Design the services from e-commerce and websites to internal tools like ERP’s, sales management, etc.
  • Facilitate co-design with customers and Motley peers remotely and face-to-face
  • Leading the development of our internal design methods

What we expect

  • 5+ years of experience, preferably in an agency or in a dynamic office environment
  • Excellent skills in digital service design and UI design
  • Knowledge of a range of methodologies, tools and approaches
  • Experience in explaining the design choices
  • Experience in competence development

What we value

  • Active attitude to experimenting, learning and developing others
  • Experience in working with e-commerce is plus
  • Bonus points for big-picture thinking and strategic capabilities
  • Knowledge how to work with clients

What we offer you

  • Great care and emphasis on work-life balance
  • An international and receptive work environment that encourages speaking your mind
  • Support for initiatives you are passionate about
  • A fast-paced environment where you define your role and career path
  • A fun place to work
  • Humble and exceptionally reliable colleagues
  • A horizontal organisation and a position in rapidly growing team
  • Challenging projects with Finland’s most ambitious companies

On top of that, the benefits aren’t bad. A couple things that come to mind, in no particular order, are a competitive salary, (even more) competitive table tennis matches, the best occupational health care, an annual training budget, colleagues whose passions are ranging from comics and artisan beers to sports, weekly in-house events like remote bingo and yoga class, sports and culture vouchers, home broadband and your choice of phone, just to mention a few.

Note! We are also looking for Senior Visual Designer. The main difference between lead and senior in Motley is that where Senior Designers focus on developing of their and their colleagues craft within the projects, leads focus on developing the skillset of team and Motley’s design offering by participating in sales and internal development on company level.
