At Agency In The Wild, we combine brand strategy, design, and growth into a single, unified process we call Brand Sprint. Brand Sprint is core to what we do and is as much a product as our client work. Our mission is to constantly evolve it by bringing together fearless thinkers and doers from around the world. Every time we run a Brand Sprint with our clients, we improve it and share it with Miro's design community, a vital part of our constant evolution as an agency. Our ultimate goal is to transform the way brands, and products are built and launched at speed.
We've taken on a bunch of new projects and are looking for a passionate, Senior Designer to join our growing team. We believe that all good things are wild and free, so we operate 100% remote. 100% independently.
