Core Designer, Product
At heart, a designer is someone who intimately believes they can solve human problems with empathy, creativity, and a little bit of elbow grease. Here at Uncorked, the design team imagines and delivers design systems that are pragmatic, yet thought provoking. These systems provide an inspired, sustainable vision of how technology, people and context can redefine our realities. For this role in particular, we are looking for someone who is comfortable being uncomfortable. This person is responsible for helping teams navigate the design process – whether we are building a web presence or an interactive wall, while also successfully advocating for product vision, partnerships with our clients, and ensuring quality execution of the work.
