Senior Digital Designer
Salary dependent on experience
We are looking for an extremely talented Digital Designer, preferably with several years’ agency experience,
with a portfolio that shows exceptional creativity and skill.
The successful candidate will join EF’s Zurich Digital Studio, the design team responsible for the company’s
largest product, Language Courses Abroad. The role will be responsible for the execution of key projects that
inspire our customers to go on life changing cultural experiences.
Working closely with senior stakeholders at the top of the company, we are an experienced, multi-disciplined group of creatives, working on a wide range of projects including websites and apps, integrated national and international campaigns, product branding and re-positioning, photography, video and printed material.
The emphasis of the position will be on web design, but the role will sometimes include design for apps
and other digital platforms, and the successful candidate will be encouraged to contribute to other types
of creative projects where appropriate.
The candidate should be an outstanding creative talent with a track record of delivering world-class interactive
design. They should be passionate about the digital medium and on a mission to create beautiful
work – someone who loves their craft and obsesses over the detail of every button, every glyph and every icon.
Constantly looking to innovate and push boundaries, they will reference great work in other media as well as
the best of digital, and be excited by design in all its forms.
Their portfolio will demonstrate a distinctive approach, elegant thinking and excellent taste, and a strong grasp
of what makes a great user experience. Excellent use of typography, photography and illustration are all
prerequisites, as is a deep understanding of branding, and the ability to translate user and business goals
into functional creative solutions.
Our team’s approach is one of collaboration, with a commitment to doing the best work of our careers – where
the quality of the work, rather than job title or role, is what matters. We’re therefore looking for a team player
who will thrive in this environment.
Attention to detail, thoroughness and commitment to quality are key attributes – the candidate is expected to
be an excellent professional – managing their own workload effectively, delivering on time, rolling up their sleeves
to get the job done and communicating clearly and proactively.
The role will not require hands-on coding, but candidates should at least have a solid understanding of the capabilities and limitations of HTML, CSS and JS, plus substantial experience of responsive design and the web development process. They will be up to speed on the latest interactive design thinking and techniques. Experience of creating clickable prototypes and working with testing & analytics data is also desirable.
EF is a global organization with customers in many countries; experience of designing for multiple languages
and cultures is therefore crucial.
LOCATION & TRAVEL
This is a full-time position in Zurich, Switzerland. As a member of a team that works on global projects, the
successful candidate will occasionally be required to travel internationally, to connect with other design
departments in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Zurich, Boston, London and other locations.
We are 40,500 staff, faculty and teachers, working in 500 offices and schools across 52 countries. While we continue to grow, we strive to stay small so as to ensure agility, smart thinking and a fun place to work.
For the past 50 years, EF has grown to include a range of programs that give students of all ages the freedom
and confidence to explore the world through language, travel and education.
Located across the globe, our language centers for youth, adults and professionals combine the best of traditional, in-school teaching with innovative language-learning technology.
We offer intensive language instruction abroad in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Chinese.
Courses run from 2 to 52 weeks for students traveling independently or in escorted groups of all levels and abilities.
Classes take place in our international language centers in one of 16 countries and offer the very best locations and accommodation whether in local host family or in a student residence.
