The Marshall Project seeks a Product Designer to join our growing product team. As a designer at The Marshall Project, you will work with the Director of Product to elevate our award-winning journalism through visual storytelling, communicate the value of our newsroom’s work, and engage our audiences by improving our product offerings.
There is no single ideal lab-designed candidate. We like complex people with unique backgrounds and a diverse set of strengths. You may be a print designer by training who pivoted to digital storytelling. You may be a creative technologist who enjoys dreaming up designs and also building them. You may be a journalist who parlayed their love of words into a passion for typography and information architecture.
You probably have at least two years of experience building digital products with teams, but maybe you’ve found your own way (freelancing? side projects?) to build a strong portfolio that proves you can pull your weight.
Research shows that underrepresented applicants tend to downplay their qualifications. What’s more important to us than a number are the experiences you’ve had and the expertise you’ve developed. This is not an entry-level position, and we are looking for someone with practical and practiced skills. However, whether you have 4+ years, or only 2 years of non-traditional working experience, if you think you’d be a good fit, please apply.
