The digital revolution is changing everything. It’s everywhere – transforming how we work and play. Are you reacting to the disruption each day or are you leading the way as a digital disrupter?

Founded in 2001, Fjord employs a diverse group of over 900 design experts in twenty five global creative hubs.

 

Our work environment appeals to self-motivated, flexible team players that have great interpersonal skills and lots of curiosity.

  • Support the role of the Creative Strategic Lead in client relationships, as appropriate and assigned.
  • Attend and help plan studio and community events, workshops, and conferences as a Fjord ambassador.

 

What skills & experience are we looking for?

  • Significant design experience, in a senior/lead role at a digital agency; graduate-level study may count towards professional experience.

  • Experience in directing and motivating project teams, mentoring junior resources, inspiring teamwork and driving a team toward a great creative product.
  • Expert knowledge of standard design and presentation applications (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Keynote, Sketch, InVision); experience with video editing, motion graphics, and prototyping software is a plus.
  • Exceptional digital design portfolio with examples of mobile and touch work for mid-to-large clients that demonstrates conceptual problem solving and the ability to define look and feel for integrated experiences.
  • Demonstrated advanced ability to utilize feedback/direction from the Creative Lead to generate multiple design explorations and iterate designs to the satisfaction of the Creative Lead (and ensure junior staff do the same).
  • Growing ability to build strong relationships with high-level clients.
