Vice President Group Director, Experience Design

We are the connected marketing agency, a full-service agency with modern creative & media, data, and technology services all under one roof.

We are connected in the way we think and the way we work. At the heart of our company are great people that we call Unicorns. Our Unicorns are open, bold, and curious and love to solve complex problems for clients in unique ways.

Our Creative Directors make digital products and services people love to use. They are collaborators who bring multidisciplinary teams together to set and drive a vision forward.

Job Description

At Digitas, our Experience Design team crafts digital products, content, and services people love to use. We are collaborators and innovators, who thrive in multidisciplinary teams, who can start from a blank page and help realize the vision for a great experience, and who aren't afraid to get our hands dirty making that vision a reality.

Our backgrounds run the gamut from site to mobile, ecom to campaign, startup to agency, with one foot in visual design and the other in UX. But at heart we are designers who love creating new, meaningful experiences and are exceptionally well versed in the practice of modern digital product creation.

We're looking for a Vice President/Group Director of Experience Design to join our Boston-based team, a leader who will help set the vision for a project, a team, and the organization. You'll be as comfortable sweating the details of a design interaction as you are presenting your teams' work to executive-level client partners. You'll be a mentor and a manager, developing talent to be their best. And you're passionate about growing your own talent, as well.

Sound good?

Good.

What you will do during a typical day:

Provide strategic direction and design oversight for a single client across multiple verticals and projects, managing for business and brand consistency when applicable

Articulate a vision for a project, then collaborate with other capability leaders, put a plan together, and make that vision a reality

Identify how a proposed project fits into the broader experience ecosystem and design vision

Direct teams of designers and content strategists across the entire design process, from kickoff to launch, including user research

Drive modern design thinking and practices to innovate modern experiences and how they are made and managed

Concept, sketch, and design digital experiences for multiple devices and contexts

Deliver experience design thought leadership within the agency and to clients

Help manage staffing and provide input on project plans

Partner with other disciplines, building relationships and trust within the organization

A portfolio full of strategic thinking paired with beautiful, usable experiences designed for all kinds of devices and contexts, including large-scale platform and interaction design for large companies, products, or organizations

A formal design education and an informal desire to always be learning

Demonstrable experience in, an ongoing passion for, and the ability to teach the latest experience trends and technologies

Complete comfort running lean teams to conceptualize, design and execute experiences in a fast paced environment
