Azavea is looking for an experienced Designer to join our Design Team. You will be tasked with translating strategies, moods, messages, and concepts into high-quality websites, web apps and marketing materials that persuasively convey the value of Azavea’s evolving array of in-house products and client projects. While you may work in print and other media, most of your work will be web, and you will be responsible for both designing and building the web frontends (HTML/CSS) of your projects.

What you’ll do:

  • Collaborate with product managers, UX designers, engineering and business development for our products and clients projects.
  • Create, document, and maintain brand guidelines and hold them at the forefront of your visual treatments.
  • Build captivating websites/ web apps that engage and excite users using modern design and thoughtful HTML, CSS and JS.
  • Have strong opinions when contributing ideas and participating in discussions, and excited to evaluate critique, self-improve and move forward quickly.
  • Design experiences that span both web and print. You might even branch out and create some t-shirts.
  • Most importantly, you will be given the opportunity to grow and expand upon your UX design proficiency.

Bonus points for:

  • Marketing/advertising/branding/illustration expertise
  • Proficiency with GitHub

What you can expect:

Our Philadelphia office is located in a brightly lit office on the 5th floor of a converted factory building in the Callowhill neighborhood, a short walk from Center City, the Reading Terminal Market and SEPTA subway and regional rail stations.  For bicyclists, we have in-house bike parking, showers and lockers.  It’s an open office plan with lots of smaller rooms for team meetings, private space and concentration time.  You get a top-end Mac or Windows laptop or workstation and extra monitors.  We have flex-time to deal with personal stuff, and most people work a 40 – 45 hour week on a regular schedule.  After the first six months, we encourage folks to spend up to 10% of their time on learning, professional development, open source, or a research project.  For example, some of our colleagues are contributors to the PostGIS, OpenLayers, GDAL and GeoTrellis projects.  Other learning and research projects have included improving dev ops tool chains; working with Spark to develop machine learning tools; and hijacking GPUs for raster data processing.  Learning projects can take many forms, but the important thing is that we want to see people pushing their professional skills forward in a meaningful way.

We offer a salary commensurate with skills and experience and a benefits package that includes:

  • Fully subsidized health care, dental, prescription plan, including for spouse/partner and children
