Senior Visual Designer

Sydney (Part Time). Expires 31/08/2018

Well, it’s finally that time. We’re looking to bring on our first part-time designer. It’s a pretty big leap for us, but we’re confident in our vision for this agency and we’re ready to bring in someone that believes in it too.

Here’s the deal: we’re looking for a visual designer. We don’t want to use the term “full-stack” but yeah, you’ll be tackling everything from branding, product design and sometimes print. It’s okay if you’re only a gun at one of those, but if you’re keen on producing beautiful, thoughtful end-to-end experiences for our clients then we can always work with that.

You are going to be a very interesting designer indeed. You’ll be leading innovative design projects for exciting startups in industries like finance, drones, crypto and self-driving cars. Many of them are in Sydney but we’re starting to work internationally with some clients in London and the United States too. We hope you like jumping on video calls with people on the other side of the world.

You’ll be teaming up with our freelance and in-house design, development and growth teams on multiple projects simultaneously. We hope that you’ll work closely with our clients to understand their needs and help them realise their dreams. We care about our client’s success way past the end of the project, so fostering a good working relationship with them is paramount.

You’ll work autonomously, taking full ownership for your work and responsibility for managing your part. We’d love to see you experimenting and figuring out possibilities by quickly producing concepts (knowing when to apply attention to detail) through wireframing and prototyping. You’ll also need to communicate clearly to present your work at different stages.

Most importantly, you’ll need to be a nice person, real authentic and someone who loves what they do. Someone who understands the importance of their work, not just in creating things that look amazing and people love, but in encouraging real human experiences and relationships. You’ll be key in forming the design culture at Erudito, so swag is of the essence.

 

Now, a bit about you:

  • You’ve spent at least 4 years working at tech companies or digital agencies so you know how things work.
  • You’re an excellent communicator who can articulate design decisions and… make words good sentence.
  • You really give a shit about the small details and understand that they can make the biggest impact to a product or brand.
  • You understand design isn’t just aesthetic — it’s how something works functionally, it changes based on what we learn and it’s influenced by the audience we’re targeting.
  • You have the ability to think high-level about product strategy and vision
  • You have experience in building and shipping applications
  • You have a sick portfolio of examples of branding, product design and interaction design

Erudito is an end-to-end strategy, brand, design, growth and product studio based in Surry Hills, Australia. We offer a range of services to help startups get from zero to one, whether it’s a massive project or some ad-hoc work.

We’re a small, distributed team which allows us to move quickly and break things… and sometimes put them back together. We like working on bit problems that are hard to solve, yet incredibly rewarding. We invest heavily in processes that allow us to work faster, smarter and more easily, but we never allow the quality of our work to be compromised… ever.

Everything matters here, especially the little details. We’re always reading, learning and sharing — our name, Erudito, means “having or showing great knowledge or learning” so this is particularly important to us. We’re never finished learning, forever students of our craft.

Lastly and most importantly to us, we’re authentic. No fake people, no narcissists, no jerks. What you see is what you get, from our people and our work.

Basically… we design, build and grow cool things.

If you’ve got a project for us and you believe you’re the right fit, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Let’s grab a coffee in Surry Hills!
