  • Create development-ready designs for mobile or web following Softway’s design system.
  • Capable of managing time and budget to achieve deadlines.
  • Balance creativity with practicality.
  • Clarity and consistency in building deliverables, such as logical and consistent naming of layers.
  • Form a working knowledge of the project’s technology to understand the challenges it presents to the end-user and implementations.
  • Balance experimentation and getting work done.

  • Think beyond the project plan; a list of tasks is your guide but not your boundary.
  • Be comfortable presenting and co-creating work to cross-functional teams.
  • Be flexible to working completely remote with US time zones primarily and India time zones depending on the project.
  • Listen, really listen, to your collaborators.
  • Own your projects by answering as many questions as you ask.

  • Be a wizard with design tools (Adobe Creative Cloud and Figma).
  • Love typography, color, and grids.
  • Bring your passions and curiosity to work.
  • Understand the internal technology platforms we use every day (Google products, Miro, and Trello).

WHO WE DON’T WANT:

We want to save your time and our time, so here are a few things we are not looking for in a UI / UX Designer. If any of these things sound like you at all, please do not apply. 

  • You need all of your questions answered before you can start working. We are asked to solve very difficult problems with incomplete information.
  • You are looking to work on a specific subset of UI / UX or design activities. We contract with “T-shaped” people. For example, if you LOVE building wireframes and frontend UIs and wish you could just do that, you won’t be happy here.
  • You are too good to work on an executive power point presentation or something not-so-creative.
  • You are afraid of working collaboratively or solo, our work requires a mix depending on the initiative.
  • You can’t handle change, multiple projects, a little chaos, sarcasm, or shade.

We will only consider applicants who include a resume and a link to a digital portfolio. If we choose to begin the interview process with you, we will have a group interview with some of the team. If you are a good fit, we’ll add you to our group of talent we work with! (We have to get to know you and you have to get to know us—it has to be the right fit for everyone.)

Technology Project Manager (REMOTE)

   

WHO WE WANT:

As a Technology Project Manager we are looking at you to oversee technology projects and to be responsible for providing project planning and implementation on various IT projects. You will work with different stakeholders (internal and external) across a range of external client projects with teams in both our Houston and Bengaluru locations.The ideal candidate will be comfortable working remotely as part of a cross-functional agile team and managing their day-to-day tasks.

The following items should sound like you:

  • Comfortable working remotely as part of a virtual cross-functional agile team.
  • A “people” person - you know your way around a conversation and you shine in front of clients. You love sharing good news and you’re comfortable giving bad news.
  • Entrepreneurial - you’re business-minded, able to empathize with your clients’ needs and wants. You pride yourself in fully understanding their business, and adding value to it.
  • Organized - you’re on top of things. You know what you’re doing next, and curveballs don’t throw you off your game.
  • A Leader - people look to you for answers and guidance. When people need problems solved, they ask you what the next step is.
  • Sponge-like - you are constantly absorbing and learning from what you do. You evolve from every new experience, applying it to the next big thing.
  • Agile - Change-fatigue? What’s that? You’re super comfortable with weeks that can suddenly change.

WHO WE DON’T WANT:

We want to save your time and our time, so here’s a few things we don’t want in a Technology Project Manager. If any of these things sound like you at all, please do not apply. 

  • You are a pushover. Our clients hold us accountable, so we hold them accountable too.
  • You don’t know how to properly use a calendar. There’s a lot going on, and you are at the center of it all.
  • You think you know it all. We believe there’s always much more to learn, for everyone.
  • You don’t like to document. It might be the less glamorous part of the job, but it’s the most important. Sending reports, tracking hours, meeting notes – these things are critical to our business.
  • You are not flexible. Sometimes we have to drive to our clients, sometimes we have to hold a meeting at night.

WHAT WE EXPECT OF YOU:

Project Managers are the backbone of our business. As servicing clients is what we do, there’s no more important role than the PM. We take this position very seriously, and we’re looking for the most talented and enthusiastic people to lead up our projects. It’s not about prior experience, but rather the natural ability to do what it takes. As a PM at Softway, we expect you to:

  • Live and breathe your clients’ businesses
  • Take ownership of your projects and teams
  • Lead your team of developers, creatives, and solutioners
  • Schedule and lead client communications, meetings, and demos
  • Coordinate with teams in our India office
  • Proactively drive plans, timelines, and budgets across multiple projects
  • Ask questions and seek help!
  • Always be ready to help others with whatever they need
  • Have fun and keep the Softway culture alive!

Freelance Designer (REMOTE)

   

WHO WE WANT:

We’re looking for a freelance Designer familiar with branding and strategic design, as well as production design work, who can thrive in a collaborative team environment. You’ll be brought on for both tactical work and longer initiatives with multiple parts, working with writers, web developers, and other designers.  

The following items should sound like you:

  • Highly conceptual. Before you begin to design, you think. And then think some more. Then you hit your sketchbook. We need big ideas and lots of them.
  • A designer for humans. You think about the end-user of your design and how you can make things simpler, better, and more enjoyable—no matter the size or scope of the project.
  • You take action. You don't wait for others to tell you what to do—you figure things out on your own. You ask questions. You get clarity. You iterate and iterate. You find inspiration outside, online, in secret places. You find the best way.
  • A well-calloused ego. Great work works. But to get to great work, you have to take a few punches in the creative gut once and a while. The bar is high here and we all help each other raise it every day.
  • Versatile. You recognize the importance of communication and take a proactive approach to communicating with team members.

You are going to design lots of different things for very different clients at Softway. You should get just as fired up about creating a logo as you do designing a corporate website. We do it all.

WHO WE DON’T WANT:

We want to save your time and our time, so here are a few things we don’t want in a designer. If any of these things sound like you at all, please do not apply. 

  • You are too good to work on an executive power point presentation or something not-so-creative. (We do a wide range of projects and they all can’t be super high level creative. We have fun no matter what we do and find joy in the process and the people around us).
  • You are afraid of working directly clients and presenting to them. (Our clients see us as partners and enjoy working face-to-face with the creative team).
  • You can’t handle change, a little chaos, sarcasm, or shade. (Things change here daily, no project is the same, and we love each other enough to throw as much shade as possible.)

WHAT WE EXPECT OF YOU:

As a designer at Softway, we expect you to:

  • Live and breathe the brands we work with—follow and extend their brand guidelines.
  • Experiment and iterate, a lot.
  • Be comfortable presenting work to clients.
  • Listen, really listen, to your colleagues and your clients.
  • Own your projects and ask lots of questions.
  • Be a wizard with design tools (Creative Cloud).
  • Knowledge of UX and UX tools like Axure and InVision.
  • Love typography and not afraid to use color.
  • Bring your passions, no matter how peculiar, to the agency.
  • Understand the technology platforms we use every day.
  • Do stuff besides design. You are the designer, but we can always use an extra brain or set of hands here and there for non-design type things.

  • Flexible voice and tone.
  • You can match your writing to the needs of the client or project.

  • Comfortable pitching ideas and articulating/receiving criticism.
  • Bring your passions and curiosity to work.
