We’re looking for a passionate UI web designer to add to our tight-knit team. We want to inspire you as much as you inspire us.
Orbit is a transparent and talented Chicago-based web design and development company. We create focused but flexible sites designed to convert. We have a strong process and a strong work ethic, but we also know how to have a good time. There are 45 Orbiteers, split across our design, development, strategy and project management teams.
We love working with great Chicago companies on sites like Vienna Beef, Lou Malnati’s, and Goodman Theatre. But we also have clients across the US, big and small, like Colgin Wines, MarkLogic, Northwoods Revolution Video, and Billie Jean King.
We’re proud to be a B Corp and love giving back to our community by donating work for Chicago area nonprofits through our Chicago Cause initiative.
Designing websites! There’s a bit more to it than that, but really, that’s the job.
Our designers work and present directly with clients. They focus on creating results-driven, user-friendly websites that beautifully bring brands to life online. They get to juggle multiple projects at a time.
They create wireframes, design concepts, and full-page designs for all unique features of a project. Oh yeah, lots of Sketch artboards. They collaborate with copywriters and put added emphasis on key page designs. On some projects, they design in browser and get into CSS code using our modular WordPress sandbox. Occasionally, we even stretch our creativity out to branding, video, and SVG animation. Whatever it takes to deliver the best possible site (within scope of course).
Our designers put a strong focus on content strategy, conversion optimization, UX and usability on all projects. They work closely with their project teams on this stuff and utilize our other designers for inspiration, feedback and refinement. We’re a collaborative bunch, but at the end of the day, it’s your design!
Designers at Orbit aren’t focused on one niche of a website, they are the driving force behind it.

What does it mean to be an Orbiteer? It means being an integral part of building beautiful conversion-oriented websites that deliver genuine results for our clients. It means being able to be creative while working on small teams. It means never being siloed.
It means getting to be yourself.
We hire people at Orbit so that you can do your best work. You have input at every stage of a project, and your fingerprints are all over it. We love working with each other, we share credit and laughter, and we get better because we get along. It’s pretty nice.
Becoming an Orbiteer means being driven to build something, and having the freedom to make it your own.

We love Chicago. We’re proud to be a Chicago company, and we use our talents to become an integral part of this city. We’ve helped donate over $660,000 in marketing and web services to deserving non-profits through Chicago Cause, a yearly charity we helped create!
We’re proud to be one of the few Certified B Corporations in Illinois. We practice good environmental stewardship and fair labor laws.
We don’t think it’s enough to do well. At Orbit, we practice doing good. We hope you’ll join us in doing so.
Every day at Orbit we ask how we can deliver more to our clients (ok, maybe not every Friday). We want you to contribute ideas, take chances, and step out of your comfort zone. We want you to grow professionally and personally.
There’s a culture of work/life balance here that’s nearly unmatched. We have people at all stages of life and careers, from kids straight out of school to people with kids in school. We all hang out. We have game nights, beer fridges, and parties. We’re there at each other’s birthdays and concerts.
Because while we take pride in our work, and work hard, we know there’s more. Orbit is built by and for Orbiteers. Always has been, always will be.
We love the work we do, the clients we work with and the amazing people we work alongside. If this sounds like a good fit for you, we hope you click and apply.
