You: And what do you expect from me?

You are a graphic designer with well-rounded design skills across different media including print and digital. You have a passion for solving problems with thoughtful design. You’re a conceptual thinker who can own projects from a striking idea all the way to sending artworked materials off to production.

- Support the evolution of the Zendesk brand as we scale our products, markets and teams

Requirements:
- 3+ years experience with graphic design across both print and digital
- Good understanding of print and production techniques
- Strong color and typographic skills
- Up-to-date with current design and technology trends
- Experience running own design projects on the side is appreciated and respected
- Knowledge of HTML/CSS/Javascript a plus but not required

Qualities:
- A sense for simple but charming and engaging design
- A fast thinker and problem solver
- A highly organised and detail-oriented self starter
- Comfortable working in a collaborative and informal environment
- Comfortable working across divisions and with diverse teams
- Outstanding verbal and written communication skills
- Self-motivated with a glass half-full attitude and high EQ

You: Quite demanding, aren’t you? Why should I care?
