I know that this is not something you normally expect, but I like to be up front about what I’m looking for in my next role so that we don’t waste each other’s time.
Give me creative freedom to solve problems without micromanagement.
Pay me to deliver good work, not to be in an office every day from 9 to 5.
Don’t be terrible and don’t have an all white* management team.
* In my experience, white people in positions of power and management tend to think of problems that they have no lived experience in as purely philosophical problems. While I don’t think EVERY white person does this, I would rather not put myself in a position where I’m arguing with a white manager about what is and isn’t racism, again. If this sounds like your management team then no thanks, otherwise I’m always happy to have a chat.
Pay me fairly and give me some decent perks that aren’t related to craft beer.
Design lead, principal or head of at a company that values design.
If all of that isn’t a dealbreaker then great! Feel free to get in touch.
