Digital Designer / Developer

Do you design with code?

WAX is currently looking for a digital designer/developer with a love for advertising and design and a passion for digital. You love interactive design solutions, from UX and typography to illustration and photography. You believe in clean code, get excited about hacking to make things work and are always up to date on the latest trends in web design. You’ll join WAX’s award-winning creative team and work collaboratively to produce compelling, interactive concepts and high-end digital solutions.

Summary

You have a minimum 5 years experience in the digital media design space, formal design & programming training, and strong typographical skills. The concept of branding is part of your lexicon, and proficiency in online marketing and media concepts a given. We expect an in-depth applied knowledge of advanced web development languages, such as PHP, JavaScript, CSS3 & HTML5, the present capabilities of web browsers, as well as strong skills in Adobe’s CS suite. You can generate your own ideas, but are also a team player and can take direction and run with it.

In addition to being an outstanding designer/developer and all-around clever person, our Digital Designer/Developer must have strong communication skills and have the ability to juggle multiple projects. (Juggling flaming swords is also a cool skill if you have it.)

If you want to work with an award-winning creative team that strives for greatness, WAX could be for you.
