Republic Wireless Careers Page

 

Republic Wireless Careers Page

My Role

In January 2016, I began a project with Republic to create a clean, lifestyle focused careers page for Republic. This was a collaboration between a copywriter, human resources, a front-end developer, and Creative Director.
I was the web designer responsible for the responsive user interface and photography selection.

Challenge

How do you showcase our workplace in not only benefits, but how we value our culture and co-workers?

Establishing the groundwork

I took a look at a few pieces of inspiration for the visual design. Clean, functional design that showcases photography. Warby Parker was a great example.

Wireframes

Jumped into low-fi wireframes to organize the information we needed.

Final Showcase

The final UI tells a story. The webpage talks about who we are, our principles, then our open roles. To showcase our culture, our Why Apply? section talks about the benefits we offer, and lastly I had one last section reserved as an alternate way to contact HR incase the viewer doesn't see a position open.

 
 
 

Challenges and Learnings

Unfortunately, we couldn't get a floating 2nd navigation and my original design had all jobs native within the page. However, due to time constraints, I had to opt for an MVP without those features. The job listings in each department link off to the third party website instead, and the 2nd navigation design did not make it into the page. The interaction design for the job listings did not go to waste however, as the FAQ section of the website needed the interaction too.

I felt this page was a large success, not only by being the first careers page for Republic, but also by expanding Republic's visual brand to include a photography style for Republic's web style guide. I learned that there was much more to consider in terms of how to balance an MVP, and a polished design. I also learned, it'd be best to start to learn the technical constraints by learning what it takes to develop webpages to create a sense of empathy for technical restraints, so I set out to do just that in 2017!
