Who You Are
As Visual Interaction Designer, you are responsible for creating beautiful and intuitive data 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 details of a design solution, from typography and color to motion and behaviors. You are also able to fluidly balance the details with the big picture and a project’s business, user experience and technology goals.
You will work closely with our designers and technologists on a wide range of projects, from data-driven websites and web applications to media installations. While you enjoy teamwork and thrive on collaboration, you are self-motivated and also willing and able to work independently. You will be in frequent communication with our clients and partners, making presentations and working collaboratively across teams. You will alternate between lead and supporting roles on projects and strive to ensure that our work maintains the highest standards possible.
Curious and driven, you are interested in contributing to Schema’s ongoing research at the intersection of design, data, and technology. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a multidisciplinary, award-winning design firm with forward-thinking clients. This position will start out remote, but following the Covid-19 pandemic you will work at our offices in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood or our forthcoming New York City studio.
