Web Designer

Job description

Major League Hacking (MLH) is looking for a Web Designer to help us educate and empower our community. Every year, thousands of developers, designers, and makers attend MLH events where they learn new skills and develop a deep passion for technology. As a Web Designer, you’ll be responsible for helping us translate our goals into compelling interactive web experiences for our community. You’ll partner with a front-end developer and our CEO to quickly bring your designs to life.

This is a 4 - 6 week contract role for 20 to 30 hours per week. We’ll ask you to come to our office for in-person sessions some days, but you will be able to work remotely once the project is underway.

Key Duties and Responsibilities

  • Prototype designs using wireframes & low-fidelity mockups. You’ll wireframe and prototype designs that address the project goals while staying within the requirements.
  • Design compelling web & email experiences. You’ll partner with our CEO to select a direction from the prototypes you create and then you’ll turn it into a high-fidelity design that you can hand off to the developer.
  • Partner with a front-end developer to bring your designs to life. You’ll work directly with a front-end developer to convert your designs into HTML, CSS, and Javascript.


  • Ability to design attractive, useable web pages in Illustrator, Sketch, or the program of your choice.
  • Experience wireframing & iterating on designs based on user feedback.
  • Attention to detail.
  • Responsiveness — we’ll be iterating over your work quickly.
  • Experience working with JavaScript, HTML, & CSS is helpful but not required.
