Become Part of the Market 8 Team

Conversion Centered Designer

Description

Market 8 is looking for a passionate UX and Conversion Centered designer.  A blend of skillful conversion centered designer and passionate beautiful web experiences designer.

This isn’t your typical web design job. This is real UX design, and the UI you create will completely change how customers interact with companies. You’re not only designing for aesthetic appeal, but also for purpose, functionality, persuasion and conversion.

Market 8 is one of the top agencies in the world that creates designs specifically geared towards inbound marketing, and mainly focuses on small to mid-size companies. That means that any designs you’ll have a hand in WILL have a significant impact in these businesses, and at the end of the day, you’ll be making a big difference.


Personal Traits and Qualifications we are looking for:

Forward thinking design skills -
Among your peers, you lead the pack when it comes to:

  • Being up to date on web design trends, flat design, responsive web design
  • Conversion-centered design
  • Interaction design
  • User Experience & Usability

You don’t design “web pages” -
you design entire experiences

Your only measure of success -
Happy and frustration-free users

Know your stuff:

  • Adobe Master: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
  • UXPin mastery (or willing to master) is a must.
  • Responsive web design

Experience with B2B -
You understand what a website designed for business buyers needs to look like.

Strong design portfolio

Independent but participative -
Strong ability to self organize and be productive, and accountable, from anywhere you want as long as you have an internet connection  As a page is being conceived, you would involved so you can start thinking about ways to enhance the message, so that when the wireframe and basic UX is set, you can be more creative and free about how to present an idea vs. being subject to what we tell you to do.  In fact we can’t be telling you what to do; you’d be one of us.

Good communicator -
We don't really believe much in the traditional project manager/designer setup. It has to be a more cohesive setup. We don’t want a robot that receives information and produces stuff. We want you to articulate creative concepts and rationale to team members and clients.

Work Efficiently under pressure, multitask and still keep attention to detail and thoroughness.

Visible -
we work in virtual teams - although our home base is Miami, FL, and Lebanon, we have team members all around the world. Yet we work closely together everyday.  We are connected on Google Hangouts, all day long, can hop into a video Webex meeting, and discuss things continually.

Self-motivated learner - 
At Market 8, we’re all about curiosity and the desire to learn. We want our team to be up to speed with all the latest advancements in the field. You’re always looking to take and apply new training in your work.

Good estimator - 
Banking on your experience you have the ability to scope, timelines and budgets for creative work.

Passion -
We want designers who love and take pride in what they do. Creating stuff from nothing is always a brilliant feat, and we want our team to have that drive and enthusiasm from the get-go.

Cool - straight up, no BS, no drama kind of person -
Design is a core role, you’d be part of the alpha team, so we can’t have drama, BS, white lies or anything like that between us.

Some knowledge of HTML, CSS, and Wordpress, just so that you know if what you're proposing is feasible, or impossible to develop.

Experience - Minimum 2-3 years designing websites.

The following is preferred but not necessary:

  • Knowledge of HubSpot
  • Experience in enterprise web design
  • Knowledge of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • Have led the transformation of a design department from “design” to true “user experience”
  • Experience in the inbound marketing world
  • Knowledge of web marketing
  • Understanding of search engine optimization
  • Ample experience on web design for B2B, specially software, startups and consulting firms

What any given day looks like:

  • Develop concepts and design entire user experiences according to wireframes, site architecture, and conversion objectives.
  • Present ideas with rationale to teammates, and clients
  • Apply brand identity systems, typography, photography, color and other ingredients appropriately to create innovative visual solutions that meet business and user requirements and Market 8’s quality and consistency standards
  • Learn to un-love your own designs, self-critique and improve.
  • Submit your designs to usability tests, conversion testing and eye gazing simulators, and take it like it is.  If something doesn't work you suggest the changes.   You are a conversion centered designer, not an artist.
  • Build interactive prototypes using your designs using UXPin
  • Own the entire design process, from managing communications and feedback from the team or the client at the design stage
  • Work with the Conversion Optimization team to tweak the design and quickly launch AB tests 
  • Provide feedback and drive the fine tuning of websites after they have to prodrive final tweaks in the development stage.

  • Competitive salary
  • Amazing work environment
  • Outstanding training - that you would literally have to pay thousands to get.
  • Work virtually from anywhere on the planet - prefered locations: Lebanon, Mexico, United States, anywhere in Europe.
  • We’re team oriented but independent - You’ll be working with a group of like-minded individuals, all motivated to perform their own tasks on a timely and quality-centered basis. You’ll have the freedom to work without a constant flood of coworkers and supervisors in your face, but with all the reassurances of having a supportive team all within your network.
  • Flexible working hours - We don’t mind if you’re an early bird or a night owl, you can work with whatever schedule suits you best. However, we do require at least 4 - 5 hours of overlap with Eastern time working hours.
