  • Comfortable using data insights to influence designs
  • You have a creative mindset
  • You can work independently and take full ownership of your projects
  • You're highly organised

It’s not expected that any single candidate would check every box here. Research shows that while men and women share similarities in how they look for jobs, women may hold back if they don’t meet 100% of the criteria, while men usually apply after meeting about 60%.

If you meet just some of the requirements, but not all, we encourage you to submit your application!

We strongly encourage you to apply if you’re at all interested. Show us how your experience could improve our team and widen our perspective. Our selection process includes assessing the requirements of the role vs the individual, and how well we think they will work in the VALD team.
