Senior-Level UX Web Designer

We’re looking for a passionate senior-level UX Web Designer to add to our tight-knit team. Our UX designers take a holistic approach to the user experience. This is a client-facing position that combines technical expertise with a keen eye for marketing, conversion flow, and site messaging.

In this position, you’ll be working closely with the copywriting and UI design team to create the full architecture of the site, as well as the on-page experience. You’ll be asking and answering a lot of questions. What answers do visitors need? Why would they not take action? What does the sales process look like? You’ll develop the strategy that organizes a site, marshals the content, and surfaces the key information visitors need to have a great experience.

You’ll work directly with the client to learn key information about their business, their industry, and their users. We count on our UX team to offer advice on best practices and make persuasive cases for our approach. It’s a qualitative and quantitative focus on creating results-driven, user-friendly websites that bring brands to life online.

You’ll juggle multiple projects at once, creating conversion guides, user flows, and wireframes for each. 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.


Qualifications

  • Must have a portfolio with at least 5-7 years of web/interface design experience
  • Has an excellent understanding of conversion design, interactive design, information architecture and usability
  • Can present and defend designs and key deliverables to peers, clients and executive-level stakeholders
  • Proficiency in designing for Content Management Systems
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Must have experience working in a team environment; design agency background is a strong plus
  • Has a great eye for design hierarchy, color, typography and layout
  • Can balance multiple projects in different phases at all times
  • Ability to collaborate with other SEO experts, designers, and copywriters to help improve their deliverables
  • Understanding of best practices for web design, conversions and usability
  • Ability to execute and prioritize tasks on short deadlines

Become an Orbiteer

We work hard to give back

We love Chicago. We’re proud to be a Chicago company, and we use our talents to become an integral part of this city. We’ve helped donate over $600,000 in marketing and web services to deserving non-profits through Chicago Cause. (a yearly charity we helped create!)

We’re proud to be one of the few Certified B Corporations in Illinois. We practice good environmental stewardship and fair labor laws.

We don’t think it’s enough to do well. At Orbit, we practice doing good. We hope you’ll join us in doing so.

We Have Great Clients, Big & Small













We’re growing. You can too.

Every day at Orbit we ask how we can deliver more to our clients (ok, maybe not every Friday). We want you to contribute ideas, take chances, and step out of your comfort zone. We want you to grow professionally and personally.  

There’s a culture of work/life balance here that’s nearly unmatched. We have people at all stages of life and careers, from kids straight out of school to people with kids in school. We all hang out. We have game nights, beer fridges, and parties. We’re there at each other’s birthdays and concerts.

Because while we take pride in our work, and work hard, we know there’s more. Orbit is built by and for Orbiteers. Always has been, always will be.
