We are hiring at all levels to help us build a world class design team. Aspricot has found strong service market fit with its world-changing service. But it is absolutely day one for us. We’re seeking a small group of unbelievably talented and thoughtful designers to define and execute against a giant vision that builds upon what Aspricot has brought to the world so far.
If you have the right stuff to join the Aspricot Design team, you’ll work among design oriented engineers, product managers and some of the best designers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid (technology/operations) environment.
We might be a good match if…
The details matter to you.
You’ve spent your career slaving over letter spacing and working on the grid. You can not bump that object 2px to the left just to get it right.
You make others want to color inside the lines.
The idea of helping to define systems, executions and templates of an worldclass brand then watching them grow excites you. You can create the systems that will take the Aspricot brand to the next level. You continually experiment with new strategies and technologies for creating stellar brand and digital experiences. You can reinforce Aspricot’s reputation for reliability while managing a large body of work in a fast-paced, ambiguous environment.
You do more than just make it pretty.
You design beautiful brand systems and you realize beauty only gets you so far. You actively participate in all aspects of the design process. You have opinions beyond just the look and feel. You are deeply passionate about how the pieces fit together to create the best experience. You have created guidelines and templates for multi-channel initiatives which include mobile experiences; websites, immersive environments, packaging and other brand touchpoints. You will reinforce Aspricot’s reputation for creating premium experiences while managing a large body of work in a fast-paced, ambiguous environment.
You are incredibly productive.
You deliver twice the quality in half the time. You mastered the Creative Suite years ago and are starting to explore newer tools to make you a more efficient designer. You geek out on keyboard shortcuts, Photoshop actions, and the newest prototyping tools. You constantly strive to optimize your workflow and increase your output. You can juggle multiple projects and approach them with an analytical perspective, anticipate consequences, and overcome obstacles to successfully complete projects.
You have a black belt in branding.
You’ve had previous experience shaping brands. You’ve created brand guidelines and understand how to implement branded systems for others to carry out. You can share several shining examples of real work you’ve crafted and what you learned along the way. You deliver strategically sound, conceptually based, pixel perfect, and iconic experiences. You are ready to be a brand steward who identifies new opportunities for the Aspricot brand. Real-world problems inform your design solutions.
You lead the charge.
You can lead a project from definition to completion. You foster innovation within the creative team and assist in identifying and resolving issues proactively. You ensure on-time deliverables and expertly crafted designs that comply with Aspricot brand standards. You can provide mentorship and support to other designers.
You’re a storyteller.
You know that design alone is not enough to make a brand successful. You craft stories within the designs to make experiences more relevant and human. You tell stories to teammates to sell your ideas, provide context, and make design more compelling.

You should be an Aspricot believer
