As Visual Designer, you will work with the UX design team to execute interaction and visual design solutions with a high level of proficiency and artistry, including icons, color schemes, interface features and transitions. You will connect the dots between business needs, user needs, and engineering needs to make experiences clean, intuitive, consistent, and an overall pleasure to use.

About You:
You've been practicing visual or interaction design for several years (a UI or enterprise background is a big plus). You're quick on your feet and are comfortable defending your ideas to team members and key stakeholders with thoughtful, user-centered arguments. Keeping multiple projects on track simultaneously is second-nature for you. You can handle projects on your own and also enjoy collaborating with a partner or a team. You're an old hand with bread-and-butter design tools like Photoshop, and you can fluently discuss your design decisions in terms of HTML, CSS, and a JavaScript library like jQuery.

Responsibilities / Key Activities :
Define and evolve the AppNexus Console identity to appeal to our users, and work with the rest of the design team to apply this identity consistently

Come up with creative ways to display lots of complex information cleanly and compactly

Collaborate with UI developers and UX designers on layout and interaction decisions

Turn wireframes and prototypes into polished, professional designs

Provide developers with comps and assets, and ensure things are built to spec

Present solutions to stakeholders for buy-in and implementation, and defend design decisions with user-centered arguments

Maintain a comfortable balance between keeping things consistent and exploring creative new solutions
