Job Description

Tightrope Interactive, a close team of marketing experts who have been working together for more than a decade, are seeking a web designer with at least 2 years of digital design and basic front end development (HTML/CSS/JS) experience to contract (a minimum of 40 hours per week) with our team in Beacon, New York.

This role is an opportunity to use your creative skills for online advertising and marketing projects that require proficiency with UI/UX design and DSP web production workflows. You should have immaculate attention to detail, and use clear communicative design and code to deliver well-structured and highly engaging end-user experiences.

You should also have keen time management skills, and the ability to meet production goals on a weekly basis. Effective collaboration with our creative team in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the ability to quickly iterate in an agile project management environment is vital for success in this role.

Responsibilities

- Design projects that include high performance: responsive websites, microsites, landing pages, display ads, email marketing templates, and sales collateral.
- Collaborate with stakeholders on project requirements; provide Scrum story point estimates with a consistent track record.
- Quickly flowchart, wireframe, and mockup projects as needed.
- Create and integrate optimized images, HTML, CSS, and JS/ES assets; utilize CDN’s and basic web services.
- Use browser profiling tools to optimize performance and diagnose problems.
- Multitask effectively between new projects, and the ownership of your past projects.
- Collect quantitative and qualitative learnings to share and apply to future projects.

Required Qualifications

- Fundamental understanding of responsive UI/UX, especially calibrated for direct response marketing landing pages and sites with excellent conversion rates. Beautiful aesthetics are not always winners in our business.
- Expert using Adobe Creative Cloud tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator to create and edit optimized bitmap and vector assets.
- Proficiency with HTML5 and CSS.
- An understanding of WordPress and its theming schema, and Jamstack such as Gatsby for React. (We use WP for most of our sites, but are transitioning to Gatsby.)
- Ancillary scripting skills are ideal.
- Experience using Git, and managing your projects in a CI/CD workflow.
- Extensive knowledge avoiding quirks with desktop and mobile browsers, email apps, and operating systems: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, et al.

Contract To Hire (40 Hours Per Week)

Hourly compensation is based on experience. This contract role will be evaluated to change into a full-time employment position with Tightrope after a minimum of three months.
