We are Echobind.
Echobind - recognized as a top Full Service Agency - is looking for a Senior UI/UX Design Strategist to join the team!
We are a consultancy that takes the goals of businesses and clients and translates those into Design solutions that users will love. Echobind is a company where you will be able to flex your creative muscles. Your work will have high visibility and will have a major impact both internally and externally.

You need to pull things out of clients minds - We are looking for a Designer that is a non-linear thinker that is going to think outside the box. Someone that is going to push the limits of what is possible. A person that gets so excited when a Design is done well that it makes them want to get out their chair and tell the world about it. Someone that dreams big and loves solving complex problems, then refines their work into something simple, powerful, functional, intuitive, beautiful, and unique. They understand that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
The ideal person is someone that is naturally curious and studies the breadth of the Design landscape. They look for the connections and relationship between different forms of Design and how they can use them across each other and in their current work. They think about the big picture and how what they are working on will impact it. Flexible and open-minded, open to new ideas and ways of working.
We need a person capable to articulate why they are making certain design decisions and explain/present these decisions. They need to be able to help other non-creatives, or non-designers to develop ideas and work through problems.
We want someone that is going to challenge us and challenge themselves to create better things every day. A person that has a great attitude, positive, fun, and passionate about what they do.
