Web Designer

| Santa Monica
Hawke Media’s creative team is up to new ideas, and it starts with you! We are looking to bring on an enthusiastic, passionate and creative web designer. If you are versatile, self-motivated and thrive in a fast-paced “learn-by-doing” environment, then you'll find our atmosphere very exciting. You’ll be working on a variety of projects on Wordpress & Shopify, ranging from high-profile, mass scale clients to brand new start-ups looking to find their identity.
Join our multi-skilled team of designers who love to dabble in front-end CMS development, and help us grow as an integral part of our team. The Web Designer must have a diverse portfolio of design work as well as CMS work, proven experience building on front-end web platforms such as Wordpress & Shopify, and experience with Javascript is a plus.

Responsibilities:

  • Plan, wireframe, design and create websites using Wordpress & Shopify
  • Alter templates using HTML & CSS, following modern design trends
  • Ability to plan for mobile-friendly responsive design
  • Update and maintain existing websites, including content updates, visual enhancements, landing page creation and performance profiling/optimization
  • Manage your own projects with a self-starter attitude, and communicate clearly with clients
  • Ability to manage scope of work, and stick within said project’s determined scope
  • Recommend best practices for integrating other digital marketing channels offered at Hawke

Skills & Experience:

  • Strong design, typographical and interactive skills that match with modern design trends and best practices
  • Proven experience of front-end design (HTML, CSS) including responsive design
  • Proven experience with Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Knowledge of ecommerce best practices, and conversion rate optimization
  • High attention to detail, strong verbal and written communication
  • Creative flair, versatility, conceptual/visual ability and originality
  • Ability to interact, communicate and present ideas and receive creative directions and feedback

Bonus:

  • E-commerce or Digital Marketing experience at a previous agency
  • Javascript or PHP experience
  • Familiarity using Sketch to build custom website prototypes
  • A beautiful portfolio that shows clean, minimal website examples that you have built

What Hawke Offers:

  • A ridiculously awesome work environment - equal parts laid-back startup and motivated meritocracy
  • An executive team that has scaled startups in the past and has every intention of continuing to scale Hawke Media into a dominant player in the digital marketing agency space
  • Tons of training opportunities, including weekly education, book clubs, online courses, paid live courses, and over 80 skilled marketers to learn from/with
  • Great opportunities to grow your technical skills and grow into a leader in the creative space
  • 401K, Healthcare, Vision, Dental and unlimited PTO (we value performance and reward accordingly!)

Our outsourced CMO value prop is taking the digital marketing world by storm. It’s why we’re one of Inc.’s fastest growing companies in the country. We’ve got no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we’re staffing up to support our scaling operations.
