UX/UI Designer - Senior

Channel 21 – ATB Financial

“Want to grow as a designer? Spend most of your time thinking about how it works, as opposed to how it looks.”
— Josh Puckett

While creativity is about thinking differently, it’s also about doing and sharing what you do. As the Senior UX/UI Designer at ATB’s internal award-winning agency, Channel 21, we’re looking for a self-motivated designer who can think, collaborate and do, someone who’s the whole creative package; someone with a zest for conceptualizing, an aptitude for the tools of the trade.
