Associate Director, XD


We’re looking for a very special someone to help as our experience design practice grows. This role asks for a lot, but you’ll have the chance to work at an agency that’s also a product company, an incubator, and a social laboratory.

What we’re looking for

We want kind, cool, talented people to join our crew. Also this:

  • Clear Thinker – solving difficult problems using good questions to get to what matters
  • Communicator – expressing complex things in simple and inspiring ways
  • Collaborator – seeking feedback and input without ego to make the work better
  • Creative – solving a problem the same way as everyone else yields similar results
  • Curious – the desire to explore coupled with a deep subject matter expertise
  • Entrepreneurial – self-starter who actively looks for ways to contribute
  • Experience – we’re thinking at least five or six years but if you think you’ve got what it takes then give us a shout
  • Good Taste – how something looks is part of how well it works

Your responsibilities

  • Work with clients to devise strategic approaches to achieve their goals
  • Spec out work for writers, visual designers, and developers to give clear starting points
  • Be able to communicate your ideas clearly and with attractive visuals
  • Bonus: Pitch in on occasional design work

What you might do

Job descriptions don’t carry a lot of weight here, but you’ll probably do things like this:

  • Helping to create a product or brand strategy (problem/insights/hypotheses/tactics)
  • Creating journey maps, working on service design or UX problems
  • Working with clients, understanding their needs, and providing guidance
  • Conducting research, e.g., heuristic analysis, competitive landscapes, interviews, leading workshops, trend analysis, and anything else that will help us understand a challenge

What it’s like here

We’re a medium-sized agency that punches above its weight with clients ranging from Fortune 100 multinationals to scrappy start-ups and not-for-profits. We provide an environment where you’ll be surrounded by talented people, art, technology, and a firehose of ideas. We encourage people to own their work and use their judgement. We try to be an ego-light crew, so we need people who are confident but kind and collaborative.

OneMethod is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive culture, one which reflects the world in which we live.
