Does the idea of collaboration make you feel like this?

If so, keep reading!

We are a team of designers, journalists, and engineers who are tasked with making good internet. We work with all of Vox Media’s eight brands on stories like Ezra Klein’s Hillary Clinton interview or Curbed’s 10 Streets that define America. Going into 2017, we’re going to be focusing even more on visual, audio, and data storytelling across all platforms, and we’re looking for the right designer to help us do it!

Our new teammate is

  • Someone who isn’t afraid to get in front of a whiteboard and lead a brainstorm. We need a designer who can come up with interesting angles to stories that leverage visual assets.
  • Someone who loves the adrenaline rush of a breaking news story. We need a designer who thinks editorially and has interested ideas on how to frame or reframe topics in the news.
  • Someone who loves getting prototypes in front of people early and often. We want a designer who can design, build, and deploy interactive storytelling projects that adhere to our design, accessibility, and performance standards.
  • Someone who is excited by the idea of storytelling through messaging bots or Instagram stories. We’re searching for someone who can design and build storytelling experiences across platforms by working with reporters, editors, social teams, and the video studio.
  • Someone who isn’t afraid to ask why. We are looking for a designer who is a strong voice for moving storytelling beyond text, and making sure what we publish has a purpose for our audience.

More about our team

  • We care about each other. We make time to get to know each other, share stories, and reflect on our week.
  • We care about our work. We don’t simply move from project to project, we take time to reflect on each story. We prioritize design research and exploration at the beginning of projects.
  • We have a process that empowers you to do your best work. We are constantly iterating on our team process to make it work for everyone: we document everything we do, work hard to ensure we’re not having unnecessary meetings, and reimagine traditional processes like scrum in a way that works best for our team.
  • Our work matters. We strive to create high-impact journalism that informs and moves our audiences.
