As a Senior Designer, You are responsible for:
Build it simple — Simplicity is the highest form of beauty. We value simplicity in everything we do, from our interfaces to the backend systems and services that support them.
Think long-term — Our mission is to make business more human. This is not a mission that can be accomplished in a few years — it’s something we will work on for many decades to come, which is why we care so much about long-term thinking and decision-making.
Shape the market — Wistia's strategy requires teams being very close to our customers to deeply understand their needs and then help anticipate what they want before they know to ask. The designers that thrive at Wistia think about create design experiences that speak directly to users and potential customers while driving them to the product and Wistia’s content.
Communicate the why — The best designs are built by teams with the most context. We have a culture in which understanding all parts of the business is highly valued: our design decisions, our infrastructure, our finances, everything. And most of all, we really love knowing the reasoning behind decisions across the business.
As a Senior Designer at Wistia, your success will be measured by:
Generating simple, elegant solutions — You quickly gather and understand the creative brief and work with partners on the marketing team to deliver a high-impact design solution.
Brand Advocate — You have an in depth understanding of our brand and are able to find creative ways of pushing the brand forward through design and visual communication.
Communicating design decisions across the organization — You understand how to make educated design decisions with your cross-functional partners and are able to communicate and discuss those decisions with others outside of the design and marketing organization.
Learning from feedback — You have a strong design review process and are able to gather and prioritize feedback to deliver on a high-impact design.
Developing meaningful relationships —You work well with your cross-functional team and stakeholders to understand needs and explain your design choices. You gain the trust of everyone around you by speaking the same language.
Moving fast and feeling positive — We are a small and fast paced team with a broad scope of work, so we need to be nimble and have a great time doing it. We don’t play the blame game.
We work hard to ensure Wistia is an inclusive and diverse place where everyone feels happy, fulfilled, respected, comfortable, and welcome.
