You will work collaboratively with both other UI and UX designers, marketing managers, product managers, engineers, and other key stakeholders and be a strategic partner to the Lead UI Designer.

  • Execute innovative creative ideas to advance Rent the Runway’s brand vision
  • Partner with other creative team members to unite the visual style consistency across the brand
  • Bring positive energy and freshness to your daily collaboration with the product, tech and marketing teams to execute digital projects across all platforms
