Core Values

  • Curiosity
  • Creative Problem-Solving
  • Get-Things-Done Attitude

  • Value transparency and clarity in a work environment

  • Are confident leading discovery and brainstorming sessions with new clients and teams, both in-person or remote

Your skills ideally include the following:

  • Creating and leading usability studies and research efforts with actual customers

  • Experience using (and preferably designing) simple style guides
  • Confidence when speaking about design decisions and defending those decisions

Airship is a group of passionate problem-solvers that values client and user experiences just as much as the software, wireflows, and high fidelity designs we produce. Our crew is a close-knit team spread across 6 states: we hold each other accountable, challenge ourselves to pursue excellence in everything we do, and are intentional about making work/home life harmonious.
