We’re seeking an Web Designer who thinks like an architect — someone who can not only design beautiful, functional websites, but also create systems, assets, and workflows that scale.
You’ll work closely with the development team to design style guides, components, and full layouts in Figma that translate painlessly to the web (Webflow mainly) You’ll work with high-profile clients and a tight-knit team to launch some of the most exciting projects in the no-code space.
Beyond that, you'll also get to work with our entire team on random, creative initiatives that we build internally — projects that we launch into the world purely for fun and not for profit.
Even though 8020 is headquartered in British Columbia, we're remote-first (currently spread across 8 countries!) While we love and prefer asynchronous meetings, you will need to be able to make a select number of client calls, most of which align with US timezones. We recommend at least 4 hours of overlap.
1+ year(s) of web/product design experience, either as a Junior or Senior in-house or at an agency (being a freelancer is cool too!)
Proven experience working with the web development process, preferably with an understanding of HTML and CSS. (You don't need to know to code at all, but you have a basic understanding of how the web works.)
Able to work in a creative environment where briefs are uncertain and clients have loose ideas that need to be refined.
A portfolio that showcases your strengths in UI and visual design, along with your proficiency in modern-day design tools like Figma. (Bonus points if you have experience with interaction design / animation.)
An ability to work with the Sales and Operations teams to clarify scope + timelines on projects to keep everyone's expectations aligned.
A forward-thinking vision with regard to desktop and mobile best practices, developments, and trends in web design.
Who This Job Isn’t For
Great communication is at the core of this entire company, as we’re all remote across 8 countries. Good communication may be more important than your core job some days. If you don’t like asynchronous communication, 8020 may not be the company for you.
We love it when our team can find ways to self-improve, even in downtime. If you need clear tasks assigned to you at all times, this may not be the role for you.
What You’re Good At
You have a strong proficiency in user interface design.
What You’ll Work On
You’ll design screens + interfaces for websites & web apps.
What Tools You’ll Use
You’ll have a strong proficiency using Figma.
When You’ll Work
At 8020, your schedule is entirely flexible.
Where You’ll Do It
This job is remote-first. 8020 is fully remote and distributed across 8 countries. You can work from anywhere in the world, but priority will be given to those who can work in US-friendly time zones.
What Traits You Have
You’re a self-starter, disciplined, and highly communicative.
All new team members start contract-to-hire. You’ll have a 3-month term to begin to ensure that you like working with us, our culture, and your role here. At the end of your 3-month trial period, we’ll meet together to figure out whether the relationship works for both parties and if so, you’ll be extended a full-time offer.
Who Will Be Prioritized
Priority will be given to those who can work in US-friendly time zones.
And as a company rule, in line with our core values, you can’t be an asshole. :)
