About the job

We are looking for a Senior UI designer to join the creative team at String and Key* and help us challenge, upgrade, and modernize the financial protection industry. (Which is a lot cooler and more fun than it sounds.) As a Senior UI designer, you’ll be collaborating with the creative team to build beautiful and intuitive visuals/ interactions for our mobile apps and websites.

String and Key is a research and development studio that is building digital platforms that will change the way people manage and protect their money. The first business we built is Wyshbox, which is a whole new way to talk about and sell life insurance to a younger audience. Customers build their own personalized policies around their “Wyshes” — the things that they want to have happen, if anything happens to them. From sending their kids to college to shooting their ashes into space – this isn’t your traditional insurance. It’s 100% online on the web, iOS, or Android. No agents and no hassles.

We assume that you…

  • Have a killer visual portfolio with solid examples of digital product design.
  • Have at least 5 years working professionally on digital products, either in-house or through agency work.
  • Have strong visual and interaction design skills with the ability to adapt to an established (but evolving) brand.
  • Have a strong understanding of usability design principles (form and function).
  • Give attention to detail with a passion for excellence
  • Are proficient in both native mobile and responsive web design.
  • Know Figma inside and out, with a strong component game.
  • Have excellent skills with Adobe products & motion tools, such as After Effects, Lottie and Principle.
  • Have working knowledge of basic front-end skills such as CMS, HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc.
  • Are experienced in building landing pages, microsites, shared components, etc.
  • Are generally a nice person who loves design.

It would be great if you also:

  • Have a keen eye for photography
  • Have good illustration skills and be able to adopt an established style and build onto an illustration library.
  • Have knowledge in visual marketing
  • Are experienced with online website tools such as Webflow, Squarespace, Wix, Shopify.
