Position Type: Contract


4+ years of experience in a design role


The Advertiser Creative team is a specialized team that includes designers, researchers, writers, and product managers, focused on developing innovative creative tools for our customers. Our job is to make the making of ads awesome, to help redefine what a good ad experience should be, and build products that inspire, delight, and make us all proud. Our work touches billions while exemplifying a key principle that is core to our philosophy: ?Focus on the user and all else will follow.?

Create new designs, including (but not limited to) user flows, wireframes, mocks, and prototypes. Communicate design intent to stakeholders. Clearly rationalize and justify design work and advocate for users? needs. Collaborate effectively on a team and be willing to explore all options. Design is grounded in constraints, which serve as boundaries to work within and barriers to creatively overcome. The craft is knowing when to conform and when to push the edge. Work closely with user researchers to better inform designs through users? point of view. Deliver the designs for each release by following through on details with the Engineering team and driving fit-and-finish polish.
