Senior Visual Interaction Designer at Schema Design

Schema Design

Location: Seattle, WA, USA
Type: Full-Time
Category: Interaction Designer


Who We Are
Schema is a research and design firm. We focus on the intersection of content and data to create meaningful and engaging experiences. We are experts in the areas of interaction design, visual design, and data visualization, and approach every project from a human-centered perspective. We collaborate closely with our clients — corporations, organizations, and innovative startups that care deeply about design to engage, inform and empower. We work across a broad spectrum of media, from websites and mobile applications to physical installations. Our process is collaborative, hands-on, and iterative. We emphasize dialogue and prototyping as methods for inquiry, discovery and validation.

What We Offer
You’ll join a tight knit, passionate team of professionals who left their roles at agencies, corporations, and institutions to tackle challenging and meaningful problems together. We offer the creative freedom to develop innovative design solutions, concepts, and strategies at the intersection of content and data. The work environment is fast-paced and collaborative—we thrive on and support the diversity of our individual talents and perspectives. We offer profit share, as well as a competitive benefits package including health, dental and vision insurance, and a 401(k) retirement plan.

Your Role
You are responsible for creating beautiful and intuitive experiences for a wide range of audiences. You have an understanding of interaction design methods and human-centered design, as well as exacting standards for typography and visual communication. You are obsessed with the execution of a design concept, from typography and color, to motion and behaviors. While you thrive on teamwork and collaboration, you are also self-motivated—willing and able to work independently when needed. You are comfortable meeting regularly with clients and presenting your work. Alternating between lead and supporting roles on projects, you are able to successfully balance a project’s business, user experience, and technology goals.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a multidisciplinary, award-winning design and technology firm with forward-thinking clients. You will work at our head office in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
