Job Description

We’re seeking a designer who wants to make the world a better, and more beautiful, place. You’ll help conceptualize, create, and deliver impactful work, in collaboration with an incredible team. 

Why work at Yoko Co?

  • Do good, better: We exclusively serve clients who make a positive impact on the world. This is your chance to build things that help create a better place for all of us.
  • 4-day work week and lots of holidays.Mondays are flex days, meaning you’re free to take them off if you’re caught up on your work. Plus, we’re closed for nearly a full week at Thanksgiving (November), and two weeks at the end of the year, plus a bunch of other days, too. Work-life balance FTW!
  • High performance, no jerks. You’ll collaborate with good people who believe in doing great work.
  • Best Place to Work (and that’s not just our opinion). We’ve been named a Best Place to Work by the Inc. 5000 and Washington Business Journal.

We value team members who are motivated by our mission and driven to make a positive impact. If you have a passion for excellence, a growth mindset, and a commitment to collaboration, we’d love to hear from you.

In this role, you’ll:

  • Design: Create visually impactful deliverables, including wireframes, mood boards, design layouts, and prototypes, for a wide variety of clients and projects, adapting and building on their brand standards, styles, and goals.
  • Collaborate: You’ll work as a part of a project team, collaborating on a daily basis with strategists, developers, project managers, and others.
  • Help: You’ll also help support the other designers on the team (and vice versa), by helping to execute on established design – from creating additional layouts, to assisting with content deployment, and anything in between.
  • Grow: You’ll have the opportunity to work on many different things, to solve a range of problems, and to receive feedback from others on the team. This is a place where you can get better at doing the thing you love, every day.
  • And more: We believe that many of the best designers have a wide variety of skills – if you have experience working in UX, development, leadership, unicycle juggling, or anything else that might be handy, we’re open to discuss how those skills could be incorporated into what you do here.

To succeed in this position:

  • This is a job that could be adapted to a wide variety of skill levels. Let’s talk about where you are in your career, and where you’re hoping to go. Ideally, you’ll have a minimum of 3 years of professional design experience.
  • You’ll need experience working with professional design software and workflows (we use Figma), and an understanding of key concepts like components and design systems.
  • A keen visual eye is important. You’ll have to be able to spot minor inconsistencies from a mile away.
  • While you don’t need to be a developer or a strategist, you should have a basic understanding of the core principles of front-end web development and UX design.
  • You should be comfortable participating in meetings, expressing ideas, and sharing your work with internal and external stakeholders.
  • While you can be anywhere in the world, you must be able to work at least 5 hours of overlap with a 9-5 pm ET schedule.

What you get:

You’ll get a flexible schedule, unlimited time off, a competitive salary, a profit share bonus (starting in your second year), the ability to work wherever you want, a personal development budget, and all US federal holidays and multiple weeks off at the end of the year to recharge. We’ll also offset your entire carbon footprint. If you’re in the US, we also offer health insurance, disability and life insurance, and 401(k) matching.

More about us:

We’re a group of people who are passionate about the work we do, the clients we serve, and improving our craft. We also care about each other — we don’t think of one another as coworkers or employees, but as fellow humans. From developers to designers, project managers to strategists, we bring out the best in each other.

We’ve been in business for over a decade, our whole team is remote, we’ve been named a Best Place to Work by the Inc. 5000 and the Washington Business Journal
