  • Experience creating wireframes, journey maps, or other discovery deliverables.
  • Strong understanding of graphic design principles and a natural eye for design.
  • You are a strong communicator, especially written communication.
  • You thrive in collaborative environments and are a team player.
  • You consider yourself tech-savvy and you learn how to use new tools quickly.
  • Bachelor’s Degree in human factors, psychology, communications, journalism, design or other related fields or related experience in communication, customer service or design roles.
  • Ability to perform the essential functions of the position, with or without a reasonable accommodation.
Strong candidates may also have these qualifications:
  • Experience interviewing people or conducting formal research.
  • Experience writing copy for digital platforms.
  • Experience with mobile-first responsive design or app design.
  • Very comfortable leading projects, presenting research findings publicly or advocating for new ideas.
  • Knowledgeable about web accessibility best practices (WCAG 2.1 standards).
  • Experience training others in design thinking, accessibility or other design related areas.
  • Experience building or working within design systems.
  • Experience with data analysis.
  • Enough technical knowledge to communicate easily with engineers (basic understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, API calls etc.).
  • Knowledge of the insurance industry, while maintaining the ability to innovate and push for change.
  • Experience working on an agile team.
  • Experience participating in or facilitating design sprints.
Some of the things we love about working at Shelter:
  • Our design team has a fantastic culture founded on honesty, vulnerability and empathy.
  • In your role you’ll have a lot of autonomy to make choices and share your opinions, but you will also be supported by experienced designers as you get started and whenever you need help. Collaboration is always a part of our process.
