Joining the design team at Street Contxt means bringing simplicity and clarity to a complex, nuanced industry and the data that informs it. Our design team shares a broad range of responsibilities to support our success which includes making meaningful contributions to our flagship product. The design solutions we produce will make a long-lasting impact how our product is received and the success our team enjoys. Our designers are supported by phenomenal engineering and business teams, ensuring we deliver a polished product.
Our approach is for everyone to gather as a group to dig into our unique challenges and bounce ideas off one another. As a team, we prioritize tasks and take individual ownership based on interest and skill. As we continue to grow, we’ll be looking for input to scale our processes, but still keep things exciting, motivating and fun. We encourage your participation and leadership in everything from high-level product design to print materials. That’s how we have, and will continue to roll.
We work with the best tools for the job and that means using Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, After Effects, Sublime Text. We’re not simply in the market for expertise with these tools, but someone with the capability to absorb complex problems and spin out elegant design solutions. You’re fully entitled to a MacBook Pro and whichever hardware arrangement you need to do your best work. Do you find that 2 massive monitors, a Magic Trackpad, and a set of Bose headphones helps you to be more effective? Well, they’re yours.
What’s most important is that you love the work, respect the team and can still kick back with your co-workers for a bit of chess and a beverage or two… all while flexing your skills and building new ones.
