Job Description:

Are you a Friendly Web Designer?

Friendly Design Co seeks a full-time, mid-level Web and Interactive Designer to join our team. We're looking for a strategic designer who will conceptualize and design websites for mission-driven clients like World Central Kitchen, ADL, and the Griffith Observatory.

In this position, you'll be designing in a collaborative environment, working closely with developers and the rest of our design team. We are looking for an individual who is passionate about creating meaningful work.

Our ideal candidate seeks to expand their skills and try new tools, and pushes themselves to do so. They have a keen eye for details and a drive for staying organized; feel confident presenting and defending their ideas and decisions; appreciate new technology; know visual design and brand identity trends and best practices; understand usability and accessibility; and love typography.

Design can do more than look good- it can do good too.

Friendly's work primarily involves visual identity design and website design & development. We are collaborators, both internally and externally, who work with niche and not-for-profit clients who believe in doing good work for their audiences and respect our process and people. We are purposeful, practical, and thoughtful while being open, spirited, and fun. We create delightful experiences for our clients and their audiences and design the best possible solution to the challenge at hand. A successful candidate for this position should exhibit an interest in both the role and applying their work to improve our communities.

This position may be filled by a remote applicant in the United States. Due to Covid-19 our team remains fully remote, but our preference is for a candidate in the communities near one of our offices in Washington, DC or Omaha, NE who could join us as part of a hybrid in-person schedule in the future.

If this job listing and requirements don't describe you perfectly but you feel there is a strong reason for you to be considered, get in touch and tell us why you want to work with us!
