Front-End Web Designer

OpenSail Digital Agency is a flourishing team located in Saskatoon, SK. We plan and execute full digital media campaigns, including organic and paid channels, creative and technical optimization, all with a focus on achieving defined, measurable objectives for our clients. 

We’re looking to add a talented front-end web designer to our team of digital marketing experts. Your role will be to support a team of dedicated professionals by helping to build and optimize beautiful, performant websites and landing pages for our diverse range of clients. 

A good fit for us:

A design-focused web developer who can imagine and execute websites and landing pages that successfully convert visitors into customers.

A poor fit for us:

A web developer with a focus on back-end and server side coding. Who, while technically proficient, lacks a deep understanding of CRO or the principles of visual design on the web.

Responsibilities

Consult with clients to discover the objectives and related needs of their web properties.

Maintain, develop, and communicate best-practices for CRO and web design within the company (including A/B testing and website personalization).

Train continuously, both formally and informally.

Stay abreast of new technologies within your sphere of responsibility.

Maintain professional and positive relationships with clients and co-workers, with a focus on actionable problem-solving.

Technology and Skills

For this position, you’ll need a very high degree of computer literacy. You should be able to pick and use any consumer-facing web platform without formal training or supervision.

JavaScript familiarity

SVG and other modern image types

Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator

Familiarity with on-site SEO

We have clients using the following platforms (though, we only build on a few of them):
