Is this you?
You can design, cut up and integrate a CMS driven site end-to-end. Understanding the difference between “art” and “design”, you know the importance of deliverables, timeframe, and budget.
Working closely with the Creative Director, you have a practical, hands-on, understanding of website design projects. Design and technology are vital, but you also demonstrate an understanding of the business case for web design – lead generation, conversion, and measurable ROI.
As you already understand how to accurately record your time, keep an eye on potential scope creep, and make sure time/cost budgets stay within expected limits, you can now start to apply your knowledge to assist the sales team to ask the right questions of new clients, help to estimate design/dev costs, and contribute to scoping documents and design briefs.
You have no problem communicating with both clients and staff, and can keep an eye on the “big picture” at all times to ensure communication stays focussed and on track. Explaining technical concepts to non technical staff or clients, along with assisting to solve support queries, will be a no brainer for you.
Although you are a team player, your skill set and ability means that other designers will naturally look up to you as a mentor – you are where they want to be in a few years. As such, you will often be the “go-to” guy/gal when it comes to getting out of a tight spot. You see this as an opportunity rather than a distraction.
What we're looking for is...
You are able to think ahead, anticipating the next step in any project – and plan for (or around) it. Your previous experience will allow you to suggest improvements to process.
You are keenly into web technology, and have no fear when looking for solutions to problems or trying out new things. This means you also understand that things can go wrong, and how to minimise risk. You also have a demonstrated track record when it comes to self-learning.
The work isn’t always glamorous or exciting, deadlines can change, and project deliverables are often dynamic --- but with your experience you already know this. You are agile and can keep your cool, and keep the train on the track.
In our team environment, you won’t always get your way. We like a good mix of ideas & opinions. From time to time 80s rock does get played at the office, so being able to embrace change and tolerate difference is one of your key attributes. You can give as good as you get.
You understand that the only bad idea is the one never shared. Being able to think laterally and (at times) loudly is a bonus. Nobody here has all the answers, but together we have more than enough.
We understand that you probably work on stuff on the side, and also acknowledge that this is a great way to stay fresh. Private side-projects are encouraged, provided they don't impact on your day to day work performance, and is complementary rather than competitive to the work we do. We are honest and open about everything we do – and expect you to be to.
About your skills..
You totally pwn Wordpress, (or Joomla, Expression Engine, or Drupal) – and can demonstrate your skill in designing and building (from end-to-end) a CMS driven website (not _just_ a blog) during the interview process.
You are all over Social Media – how to use it, how to set it up, and you can suggest practical ways that SM can be used by us and our clients, for brand building, lead generation, and even monetization.
Underpinning all the wow & cool in your portfolio and resume, your work ethos must demonstrate a logical, clear-headed, and well-structured approach to web development. You will be helping to set the standard for process and execution in all your work.
