Highline Beta is looking for a creative, resourceful, and proactive designer to join our team. We're looking for a combination of these three attributes because we believe they describe the qualities of a candidate who has chosen to learn and apply the latest in no-code tools-such as Webflow, Airtable, Bubble, Zapier, Typeform, and / or Shopify-to own and realize complete experiences, not just pages.

Your role will be focused on working with one of our corporate clients for the next year helping them design and validate future business opportunities by testing them early and often with prospective end users.

You will be responsible for translating hypotheses into experiments which can be put on the web in the form of an ad or landing page, or in front of customers as part of an end-to-end experience prototype.

In all instances, making a business idea feel real and exciting is the goal. Successful experiments will likely involve a combination of branding, copywriting, layout, and interaction design, spanning multiple touch-points across the journey.

If you're a designer who likes to quickly find signal in the noise of ambiguity, who values feedback from the market, and who likes to take the experience into their own hands, this is the role for you.
