Founded in 2015, Headway was born out of a passion to bring entrepreneurial ideas to market and keep them there.

We help entrepreneurs build businesses - not just features.

We work holistically with our client partners as true product teams. We bring an ownership mentality to design, validation, and building great digital products. Our clients trust us because we focus on addressing risk head-on, learning quickly, and creating awesome products that customers love.

Our product strategists, designers and developers create incredible products that bring successful long-term partnerships and trusted referrals.

This approach, coupling an experimental-mindset with realistic and incremental software releases, results in a friendly, fun, and collaborative atmosphere where our colleagues and clients both have room to learn and grow.

See how our clients talk about our approach and check out some of the recognition we’ve received so far. Discover how we show our clients appreciation with unique holiday gifts each year. Or, if you’re a podcast fan, check out Seaworthy, where we explore ways to help companies grow and scale their business and ideas. We’re excited about what we’ve achieved in the last few years, but we’re just getting started. We need your help to take us to the next level!

Position Description

At Headway, as a Brand & Web Designer

You’ll be working within a multidisciplinary team of marketers, designers, and developers to evolve the Headway brand through various design and web projects.

A day in the life

During a typical work week, our crew members enjoy a balanced assignment of 35 hours on internal projects with the ability to invest the other 5 hours in a combination of individual goals and team meetings. Twice a year, we take a full week away from client work to focus on team goals and internal project initiatives. These weeks alternate between a retreat-style destination that encourages team bonding and goal setting, and a more focused week-long design and development sprint at our primary office in Wisconsin.

What does success look like?

During your first 2-4 weeks at Headway, you’ll receive extensive on-the-job training. This training covers the fundamentals of our core technologies, the way we delegate tasks within a marketing team, our process and workflow, strategies, and much more. You'll have dedicated pairing time scheduled with various colleagues to cover different skills. After this training period, you'll be successfully contributing to new initiatives in the context of the team. Welcome aboard!

Each week, you’ll meet with your team lead to ensure that you have the time and attention you need to be successful.

  • Project status / team issues / weekly retro

  • Individual quarterly goal progress

  • Individual responses to our weekly team health questionnaire

Quarterly & Annual Reviews

In addition to weekly touch point meetings, more formal quarterly reviews are scheduled to discuss successes and areas for growth identified over the last 3 months. We have annual performance assessments and salary reviews, though we reserve the right to provide a merit based pay raise at any time. Most crew members achieve between a 2% and 5% raise each year within their same role, but bigger jumps are possible when roles or responsibilities increase. We’re here to grow with you sustainably over the long term.

Why should you apply?

  • Help lead the evolution of the Headway brand
  • Work on various brand projects from our site to unique personalized goods
  • Strong leadership and top-notch colleagues to help you realize your full potential
