Your Position

Shero Commerce, a full-service, global ecommerce agency, is looking for an experienced UI/UX Designer with a passion for elegant, intuitive ecommerce experiences. In this role you’ll have two primary responsibilities.

1. Elevating the Shero brand. You’ll work closely with our Marketing Manager and other team members to create assets for a variety of channels. Think blog post graphics, Case Studies, social media channels, email newsletters, and more. All of those designs will follow our established brand standards and fit the overall Shero vibe.

2. Supporting our Production UI/UX Designer with client projects. As an ecommerce agency, we partner with merchants from a wide array of industries.

At Shero we work together like an orchestra, not rock stars—we only hire people who believe in teamwork and collaboration. You’ll need solid written and verbal communication skills in English, and a drive to work well with people from all backgrounds.
