    excellence at the forefront of their work. We are looking for an Experience Design Lead to head up our creative
    efforts in the studio.

    For this role, you will partner up with our Creative Director where she will be externally facing (business
    development, speaking engagements, recruiting) and the EDL will be focused on projects, clients and pushing
    us forward in quality and innovation. Our clients include Google, Oscar, IBM and LinkNYC. Projects range from
    drilling deep into a specific touchpoint to developing physical and digital touchpoints within larger service
    ecosystems. Your objective is to identify opportunities and create solutions and experiences that make a
    genuine difference in the lives of people. Collaborating closely together with the project teams and clients, you
    will balance creative leadership with hands-on craft to propel our engagements toward delivery and launch.

    In this role you will:
    - Lead the creative strategy on projects
    - Oversee creative quality across projects
    - Provide hands-on creative leadership
    - Manage client relationships alongside our producers
    - Develop accounts from the creative perspective
    - Energize and mentor the project teams

    We want you to have:
    - A passion for great solutions and stories
    - A desire to reduce complexity and increase clarity
    - Strongly integrated prototyping into your work
    - Understanding and mastery across the design process from research and insights to concepts to wireframes
    and flows
    - Excellent verbal, written communication and presentation skills
    - 8+ years experience working with clients or on products as a lead designer
    - A portfolio that shows your strategic and conceptual thinking, user-centered methods, process and strong
    craft skills applied to a range of projects and clients
    - An interest in the service design approach and methodology is a plus

    Our perks:
    - 25 days of Paid Time Off (PTO)
    - 100% company paid benefits package
    - 401(k) plan

    - Bonus, at the end of a good year

    Doberman was founded over a decade ago. Today, we are a leading design firm based in New York, Stockholm
    and at our think tank studio in Berlin. Over the years we have nurtured a collaborative and people-focused
    culture because we believe that fuels innovation. This culture led the Swedish Minister for Employment to twice
    hand over the prize for Sweden’s Best Employer and our Managing Director to be appointed Sweden’s Service
    Innovator of the Year.

  • We love parents!

    Doberman helps launch U.S. initiative Pledge Parental Leave to improve parental leave benefits.

    Posted March 22, 2016

    “No one should ever need to choose between caring for their child and their job. The launch of Parental Pledge Leave is the first step towards a sustainable company culture across the creative industry.”, says Anders Frostenson, Managing Director, Doberman Inc

    Doberman is part of Pledge Parental Leave (PPL) an initiative by 11 creative firms in New York who are making a public commitment to improve parental leave benefits.

    In the U.S policies are almost non existent, and to be a working mom or dad can be difficult. To change things, improve quality of life for parents and families, and set a positive example we have founded PPL. It started as a initiative by Ustwo NYC and Doberman was one of the first  to join as a founding partner. We are in good company among IDEO, Smart Design and other prominent design firms. The idea is to start with our own industry and push to make this change resonate in other industries as well. 

    This is a proud day for us and hopefully a spark for bigger change!
