Senior Level UI Web Designer

We’re looking for a passionate senior-level UI web designer to add to our tight-knit team. We want to inspire you, and we want you to inspire us.

Orbit is a transparent and talented Chicago-based web design and development company that builds focused but flexible sites for our clients’ clients. We have a strong process, but we’re constantly evolving, and we want your help with that. We love the work we do, the clients we work with and the amazing people we work alongside.

Who We Are

Orbit is a transparent and talented Chicago-based web design and development company. We build focused but flexible websites designed to convert.

We have a strong process and a strong work ethic, but we also know how to have a good time. There are 40 Orbiteers, split across our design, development and project management teams.

We love working with great Chicago companies like Vienna Beef, Lou Malnati’s, and Goodman Theatre. But we also have clients across the US, big and small, like Billie Jean King, MarkLogic, and Federalist Wines. We’re proud to be a B Corp and love giving back to our community by donating work for Chicago area nonprofits through our Chicago Cause initiative.

What You’ll Be Doing

Our designers work directly with clients. They focus on creating results-driven, user-friendly websites that bring their brands to life online.

We juggle multiple projects at once, creating conversion guides, user flows, wireframes, moods and designs before teaming up with development to bring them to life. We put a strong focus on content strategy, conversion optimization, UX and usability through all phases. We work closely with our project teams and utilize our other designers for inspiration, feedback and refinement.

It’s our responsibility to determine how every site will be used by its visitors, and it’s a challenge we love. It’s also our job to partner with and educate our clients along the way ensuring they can use their sites to their fullest post-launch potential.

Designers at Orbit aren’t focused on one niche of a website, they are the driving force behind each site.
