Design Director

Work & Co ( defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. In just five years, we’ve become the go-to partner for Apple, Target, Marriott, Lyft, Etsy, American Express, LVMH, Planned Parenthood and more. As Fast Company noted, our engineering and design teams are “routinely entrusted with creating digital product for companies which rarely approach outside firms.” Forrester Research called our way of working "a model to follow.”

We look for Design Directors who see no boundaries between form and function, and who think the feel of a product should come from its user experience as much as its look. We believe designers are basically strategists who express strategy through design.

Creating digital products is a team game. Our methodology emphasizes intense collaboration, early prototyping and testing, and so many iterations you’ll lose count. Design Directors work closely with Product Managers, Strategists, and Developers to create digital products and services that reshape industries. Our Partners are hands on and you’ll work directly with them — no middle management here.
