Who We Are

Maark is a strategic marketing and innovation agency for global companies. We help our clients define and articulate their vision, design new connected customer experiences, and develop applications at the intersection of where what’s possible meets what’s relevant. 


Our team of designers work with relative autonomy on our respective accounts but support each other through collaborative feedback and guidance. We don’t believe in egos and instead look for designers who want to learn from their colleagues and share their skills so we all can make the best work of our careers. Learn more about our product design practice.


We’re headquartered in Boston, MA, but have a hybrid work model—two days a week in the office and three days from home. We’ve operated this way for the last five years and believe it gives us valuable face-time with each other and more time with our families and friends.


The Role

As a Lead Product Designer at Maark, you will own the design for one of our larger accounts, driving the product direction, developing a shared vision for the team, and executing with the help of other designers. 


Responsibilities

  • Lead the product design process on one of our larger accounts, guiding the team, setting the vision, and being the creative point of contact with the client.
  • Develop the visual language, infusing the brand voice into the product experience and interface.
  • Perform research to inform your design decisions and product direction, sometimes working with research teams to help find insights.
  • Work in systems, maintaining and growing modular atomic libraries to benefit your team, the engineers, and the client.
  • Collaborate with the engineering team, working to define a shared language and avoid “throwing things over the fence.”
  • Present your work to internal and external stakeholders, explaining why your design will be successful
  • Advocate for design, speaking to the value of user research, design systems, and design as a strategic differentiator.
  • Give honest design feedback to the designers you work with and act as a mentor to help them grow.


Qualifications 

  • You’ve been working on digital products for 7+ years.
  • A portfolio that shows your mastery of design— typography, composition, and color, as well as your product design process.
  • You’ve shipped and launched several products either at an agency or as part of a product company.
  • You’re an excellent communicator, confident in presenting your solutions and process internally and to clients.
  • You have had the chance to lead or mentor other designers in the past.
  • Experience running user interviews and usability tests.
  • Experience with (and an affinity for) Figma.
  • You know what’s possible to build on the web and what might be more difficult (and sometimes build some things yourself).
  • You care about designing accessible experiences for all users (and creating tools that help)


Even if you don’t hit 100% of these qualifications, we still encourage you to apply. We can work with you to help build some of these skills over time.


Benefits

  • $1,000 sign on bonus
  • Work from home three days a week
  • 100% paid health and dental
  • 401(k) with company match
  • Generous paid time off
  • Competitive salary
