About you

You’re a passionate blend of web enthusiast and design buff. You obsess about front-end web trends and the design fundamentals that connect them with real meaning and staying power. You’re equally comfortable ripping CSS3 apart and drafting a pie-in-the-sky homepage comp in Photoshop. You’re detail-oriented, love to share insight and learn, and have the ability to work within tight timelines on multiple projects simultaneously.

As a Digital Designer, you’ll work closely with developers and editors to drive the visual design of govexec.com, nextgov.com, routefifty.com and defenseone.com.  

 

Responsibilities

  • Guide digital design thinking at a fast-growing media company, giving skilled design advice on projects, making recommendations, creating & improving web sites and mobile apps
  • Create wireframes, rapid prototypes, user interfaces, comp designs, graphics, banners, landing pages, and web sites
  • Design layout and templates for maximum usability and focus on user experience
  • Work with web developers to apply style and user interface design to web applications and work across our editorial teams to visually showcase their journalism to our readers

 

Skills and Experience

  • Killer design chops with a great digital portfolio
  • Fluency in Creative Suite
  • Experience with Sketch a plus
  • Up-to-the-minute knowledge of the latest web trends and tools
  • Self-directed and capable of working in a fast-paced environment

 

To apply:

Please include a link to an online portfolio that shows 3+ examples of web/product design. Candidates without an online portfolio or web-specific examples will not be considered.

 

Atlantic Media Values:

Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates.  In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.

Force of Ideas: At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, giving voice, argument, and flight to the latter.

Spirit of Generosity: Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.

 

If all of this sounds like your cup of coffee (probably strong), and you want to work with some of the most decent, fast-paced, smartest people you’ve ever met, apply now. We can’t wait to meet you!

 

Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
