We’re Hiring: Front-end Designer

Written by Aileen Jeffries on

We’re searching for an enthusiastic and talented Front-end Designer to join our small team in downtown Portland.

If you love the web, solving complex design problems and writing or speaking about what you learn and think, you’d be a great fit at Cloud Four. As a Front-end Designer, you’ll work directly with our clients to understand their objectives, shape project direction and deliver designs that make the most of what the web can do.

While you’re comfortable producing traditional design deliverables such as wireframes and mockups, you’re also fluent in (and passionate for) the language of the web. You often prefer designing in-browser with HTML and CSS because it gets you closer to the end user’s experience, and allows you to learn and incorporate new techniques without waiting for design tools to catch up.

Nearly every project we undertake we do as a team. We prefer frequent iterations and working collaboratively with our clients on designs. We need people who have empathy and communicate well.

We provide a positive and creative workplace where people can do their best work. We value the unique contributions of every member of the Cloud Four team. We welcome and seek diverse opinions and backgrounds.

We’re not interested in startup insanity. We support our families with reasonable hours, flexible schedules, and the ability to work from home when needed. We offer benefits including medical, dental, vision, and a retirement savings plan.

We’re a small agency with big aspirations. We started Mobile Portland, organized Responsive Field Day and host a community device testing lab. Our articles are frequently cited by some of the web’s most influential voices. We speak at conferences, participate in web standards setting, and contribute to open source software. We like exploring the frontiers of what’s possible on the web and sharing what we learn.

If this sounds like you, please send your resume and a cover letter explaining why you’re the right person to join our team to jobs@cloudfour.com.
