The Vacuum


Hiring: Digital Designer

We’re looking to add a talented, friendly and dependable mid level digital designer to our roster. You are passionate about your craft, make work you are proud of and have a desire to continue learning and growing. 
You are seasoned in digital, and thrive on the process as well as the end result. You collaborate smoothly with other team members and clients, and can clearly communicate abstract concepts. You are driven to push every last pixel until it’s perfect. 
You’re comfortable working with UX designers’ wires, as well as creating your own before starting the design process. You empathize with the user. You lean on best practices, but are curious and try new things to make them better. You like building prototypes to test interaction theories whenever feasible. You know that nuance matters, and the details count.
While the vast majority of work would be digital UI Design, we are hoping to find someone who is strong in branding/identity work as well. Additional abilities in print, illustration or animation would be a bonus.
Vacuum is an award-winning digital brand agency that’s been around since 2003. We work for established brands like Arc’teryx and Tonal, and help small startups find their footing. We are part of the Fig Leaf Group, a global team of media companies. 
Many of the Vacuum crew are based in Squamish and Vancouver, but we are a fully remote team, and welcome applicants from anywhere in Canada. We value openness and honesty, and treat our coworkers and clients like we treat our friends. We take our work seriously, and ourselves lightly. No egos or attitudes here.
