Senior Communications Designer, Regional Marketing (LA, Chicago, NYC)

Uber Overview

Uber has already found strong product/market fit with its world-changing service. But it is absolutely day one for us. We’re seeking a small group of unbelievably talented and thoughtful designers to define and execute against a giant vision that builds upon what Uber has brought to the world so far.

If you have the right stuff to join the Uber Design team, you’ll work among other exceptionally talented staff in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, highly collaborative environment. From music festivals to marketing collateral, you will have the opportunity to give a local voice to Uber’s communications.

We are highly user-centric and we deeply believe we can innovate our way out of any box. The role demands great execution, bold innovation, obsession with quality, fearlessness and optimism to be inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with creativity while keeping the user in mind and ambition to take projects to the finish line.

Job Description

We might be a good match if…

You’ve worked with world-class brands.

Your portfolio is eye-wateringly beautiful. You’ve proven your capabilities with instantly recognizable companies known for exceptional design. Your standards are incredibly high. You know how to elevate a brand.

You’re primarily digital with some analog tendencies.

You push the limits of a responsive layout and can pack a punch into a 30k ad banner. You love the emotional impact added by interactions, transitions, and animations, but you’re not afraid of a little CMYK. Your skills are built on a foundation of classical graphic design.

You are a storyteller.

You understand that they key to great communication design is great communication. You use stories to make your work compelling, relevant, and meaningful to your audience.

You have big ideas.

You think about more than just execution. You’re experienced in concept creation and can pitch an ad better than Don Draper. You always map your work to conceptual strategies that resonate with the intended audience.

The details matter to you.

You’ve spent your career slaving over letter spacing and corner rounding. You can’t not bump that object 2px to the left just to get it right. Your typography and executions are flawless and you have a black belt in illustration and icon design.

You are incredibly productive.

You deliver twice the quality in half the time. You mastered the Creative Suite years ago. You geek out on keyboard shortcuts, Photoshop actions, and the newest prototyping tools. You constantly strive to optimize your workflow, increase your output, and become a more efficient and effective designer.

You can think and talk about the bottom line.

Analytics don’t scare you, and you know which features can act as force multipliers on your company’s business model. You translate business strategies into compelling experiences for real people.

Cross-platform is your style.

Hopefully you’ve designed for several platforms. You know what translates from desktop and what doesn’t, when to design in RGB vs CMYK and when to refer to a Pantone book.

Here are the kind of skills we’re looking for:

  • Strong conceptual thinker
  • Proven ability to deliver exceptional design at high volumes under tight timelines
  • 7+ years of visual design experience
  • A solid understanding of designing to achieve business objectives while meeting an expected brand standard and high bar for aesthetic quality
  • Experience with performance marketing a plus, but not necessary
  • Agency experience a plus, but not necessary

Perks

  • Employees are given Uber credits every month
  • The rare opportunity to be a part of building a worldwide brand, ensuring its success and helping evolve it for the future
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment

Benefits (U.S.):

  • 401(k) plan, gym reimbursement, nine paid company holidays
  • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs
  • Unlimited vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it
