Visual Interaction Designer

We’re Pow Interactive. We are a dynamic, digital agency specializing in web, mobile and emerging technologies. We believe that User Experience is one of the most important aspects of design—from a brand’s visual appeal, to the interaction with their product or service—it has to be exceptional; it has to stand out from the crowd, but it also has to be simple, engaging, and intuitive. User Experience is a delicate balance of form and function, and in the highly sophisticated systems we work in, getting it right can be challenging. That’s why we pride ourselves on our reputation for delivering outstanding, brand-defining design solutions to our clients, including several well-known Fortune 500 companies.

We’re looking for someone with fresh, exciting ideas and a strong understanding of smart, functional, user-friendly design. We’re not looking for people to help us keep pace with the status quo; we’re changing the world of user experience, one interaction at a time. We believe in working closely together, and exchanging feedback in a constructive and respectful way. And we work hard to keep a low-ego, team-oriented culture. If this sounds like you, and the environment you’ve been looking for, look no further.

As a Visual Interaction Designer at Pow, you’ll be involved in a variety of different roles and tasks across our diverse client list, including brand design, media and data analytics, problem-solving and design solutions for financial services, and complex application design. We believe that teamwork is not an assembly line, but a cohesive group, so we work—and play—as a team.

In order to fully embrace and excel in your role as VID, you’ll need a proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite. Additionally, any knowledge of front-end technologies like HTML and CSS, or prototyping techniques like Axure will be a huge advantage, and will definitely come in handy.
