Digital Designer (Remote)
Bukwild is a boutique studio comprised of hands-on experts that deliver world-class digital experiences for branded DTC commerce and innovators in B2B. We believe you can deliver world-class craft from team members who are supported, honored and encouraged to find the right balance of work life and real life. We maintain a very collaborative culture where our teams in project management, strategy, design, and development work closely with our clients. Our 20 years of experience has led us to a distinctly user-first approach: we believe that when digital teams intentionally prioritize UX outcomes as related to business goals, it will ultimately yield stronger connections between brands and their consumers.
We realize that there is a high bar to delivering a great customer experience, while also providing a platform that’s easy for clients to manage without having to keep an agency on speed dial. We have actively structured our project teams to deliver on these challenges – every website project has a dedicated Strategist to steward consumer insights and best practices, a Designer who can bring a brand’s position to life on the web, and also design for performance and conversion, and a Technology and Project Management team who is well-versed in platform integrations and delivering a scalable tool that empowers our clients’ teams. To be frank, we’ve all worked closely together on these things for years – we understand the obstacles that teams face, and we know how to address them.
At Bukwild we’ve always valued community. Working remotely has made this take a different shape, but we get together twice a year to hang out, spend quality time together, and just have fun.
