As a member of our growing design team, Junior and Mid-level UX Designers will work closely with other designers, producers, developers, and clients throughout the project lifecycle, enabling us and our clients to deliver effective, human-centered solutions. Ideal candidates should be looking to contribute to multiple areas of the UX design process, such as research, analysis, information architecture, content strategy, concept development, interaction design, UI design, or accessibility, with any level of experience in each being welcome. Over time, they should also be looking to develop strengths as a leader in the UX design process, such planning, coaching/mentorship in one’s chosen skill areas, and facilitation of design as a team-driven process.

The Design Team at Last Call Media’s highest priority is making sure the experiences we build work for the audiences they’re built for. This human-centered approach necessitates thoughtful research and an empathetic approach toward users as well as clients and colleagues.

At Last Call Media, we like to do work with purpose--much of our work is for government, higher ed, and non-profit clients, most often improving or redesigning their web experiences. We also work with commercial clients, and on web applications and internal products.

This listing is for positions at multiple levels. Below are our definitions for the levels. You’ll assign yourself a level as part of your application and, should you be interviewed, we’ll discuss it with you then:

  • Junior UX Designers have started developing skills in multiple areas of UX design, with some education and/or project experience under their belts. With frequent communication and feedback from peers, they lead design activities themselves, while contributing to more complex projects with coaching/mentorship from other designers at Last Call.

  • Mid-level UX Designers have professional experience working in teams and/or solo on multiple design projects. Mid-level UX Designers are fairly autonomous, working with other designers for feedback and coaching, while able to manage design work of moderate complexity themselves.

  • An opening for a Senior UX Designer is available under a separate listing, available here: https://apply.workable.com/j/0BD4967ED6?utm_source=womenwhodesign&utm_medium=board

As a fully remote company, we welcome applicants from any country or location.

At both levels, a successful UX Designer:

  • Brings the experiences we build closer to the needs of their audience, in an efficient and effective way. Our Design Team frequently conducts research activities like audience interviews and usability testing, and frames all of our design work in personas and journeys rooted in that research.

  • Actively grow their design practice, by both learning on the job and taking advantage of educational opportunities. Last Call provides an unlimited professional development budget that the Design Team frequently uses to attend events and workshops, both together and individually.

  • Work directly with clients, presenting their designs and articulating their audience-centered strategies

  • Coordinate with Sr Level Designers and Producers to shape and fulfill project strategy.

  • Work closely with the rest of the Design Team by participating in daily meetings, giving and receiving feedback, and contributing to the team’s Design Handbook.
