Company description
Since 2005, Yodle has grown to 1,400+ employees, and we’re not slowing down. With an unmatched combination of rapidly-developing technology, thoughtful data analysis, and expert levels of service, we make online marketing accessible to local businesses. 

Everyone at Yodle plays a pivotal role in the company’s overall success. Here, there’s no such thing as slipping through the cracks. We’ve maintained our startup culture for a reason: to create an environment where you can own your ideas and run with them, no matter where you happen to fall on the org chart.
Job Description
Visual Designers play an important role on our User Experience (UX) team, creating the visual expression of our clients’ brands to the world. Their primary responsibility is to design on/off-line products that help our customers connect to theirs. Visual Designers collaborate openly with other members of the UX discipline, including Interaction Designers and Front-End Developers, as well as members of our Product Management, Marketing, and Product Marketing teams.

Great candidates for this role are passionate about branding and design systems that can be applied across a range of products including: websites, emails, postcards, and other branded collateral. These candidates are strong creative thinkers who can conceptualize designs and execute on those ideas. They can design clean, modern, inspiring pixel-perfect interfaces across platforms showcasing impeccable layout and typography skills.

Strong Visual Designers think not only about the way things look, but also how they work. In the case of designing a web application, they understand modern front-end web technologies like HTML 5 and CSS3 and how these tools can be used to improve the UX. In the case of designing a mobile experience, they think about the physical device at hand and how everything from aspect ratio to gesture-based inputs can affect the quality of the design solution. There are a million things to think about, and Visual Designers love to explore them.
