Web Designer Full-Time

Location: Vancouver
Company Name: Thinkific ()
Category: Interactive Web / Video, Web Design / Development

We’re hiring a motivated and exceptionally skilled senior Web Designer to join our design team.

As a Web Designer at Thinkific—you’re not just building webpages. You will drive the development of cutting-edge responsive themes for our product, work closely with our marketing team to bring their campaign landing pages to life, as well as own the main thinkific.com site. You’re not only obsessed with great design, you understand the necessity of using customer data to drive decisions and are fanatical about A/B testing.

As a member of the design team, you'll work closely with a friendly, collaborative, fast-paced team, without egos. We strive to find the right solution above all else, and we appreciate attention to detail and a passion for beautiful products.

Things you will be doing:

  • Designing and creating beautiful, pixel-perfect responsive websites and themes
  • Researching, testing, and implementing conversion-focused layouts and design elements
  • Staying on top of design trends, with the ability to create current designs that are applicable to a cross-section of our customer base
  • Advocating for good user experience across our platform
  • Identifying design problems and devising elegant, user-centric solutions
  • Sharing and reviewing your designs based on peer feedback, user research, testing, and user feedback
  • Collaborating with the product team to make your vision a reality
  • Building out your vision using HTML5, SASS and JS

You'll need to have:

  • 3+ years of designing beautiful responsive sites for the web
  • A substantial portfolio of detailed designs and live projects that you can speak to
  • The ability to confidently make your designs a reality with HTML5, SASS and JS
  • Experience designing for mobile (familiarity with Google Material Design and responsive design)
  • Experience with templating languages like Jekyll, Liquid or similar
  • Expertise with design tools like Photoshop and Sketch
  • An understanding that great experiences come from collaborative decision-making with front-end developers, engineers, researchers, customer success, and other disciplines (we love design sprints!)

Bonus round:

  • You have experience creating website templates for use by a variety of end customers
  • You’ve successfully created and implemented design systems and style guides

Why we think you’ll like working with us:

  • Be part of a collaborative, high performing team focused on building best-in-class software in order to grow our company
  • We have plenty of office snacks, coffee, and the occasional Friday beer to keep you fueled
  • We offer a competitive salary, health/dental/vision benefits, and an open vacation policy
  • Celebrate & get to know your peers with monthly and quarterly team events
  • We have an amazing existing team of really talented engineers, marketers, and customer success people that want to work with you
