Designer (Mid-Level)

Houston, Texas, United States · Creative · 0004




We're Softway. We are an independent digital agency with offices in Houston, TX and Bengaluru, India. We do work we're proud of. Work that makes an impact on our clients' business and, hopefully, the world. We do it by bringing bright people together from all walks of life and every imaginable background, letting them loose on a challenge, and giving them the freedom to explore the possibilities.

*PLEASE NOTE: We will only consider applicants who include a resume and a link to a portfolio.

If we choose to begin the interview process with you, we will be giving you a design assignment and we typically go through multiple rounds of interviews. (We have to get to know you and you have to get to know us—it has to be the right fit for everyone.)

A few key experiences we're looking for:


We’re looking for a Designer with 3-5+ years of experience to join our Houston team. The following items should sound like you:

Before you begin to design, you think. And then think some more. Then you hit your sketchbook. We need big ideas and lots of them.

You think about the end-user of your design and how you can make things simpler, better, and more enjoyable—no matter the size or scope of the project.

You don't wait for others to tell you what to do—you figure things out on your own. You ask questions. You get clarity. You iterate and iterate. You find inspiration outside, online, in secret places. You find the best way.

Great work works. But to get to great work, you have to take a few punches in the creative gut once and a while. The bar is high here and we all help each other raise it every day.

You recognize the importance of communication and take a proactive approach to communicating with team members.

You are going to design lots of different things for very different clients at Softway. You should get just as fired up about creating a logo as you do designing a corporate website. We do it all.


We want to save your time and our time, so here are a few things we don’t want in a graphic designer. If any of these things sound like you at all, please do not apply. This is not the place for you.


As a graphic designer at Softway, we expect you to:


Like a good, healthy, slightly crazy agency, we work across channels and media for our clients, so you’ll design a bit of everything:

Fully integrated campaigns as well as standalone pieces like websites, emails, apps, display ads, etc.

Branding elements like logos, typography, color palettes, patterns, and photography direction

Blog articles, whitepapers, case studies, and the occasional print piece.


Softway is an agency that’s truly a special place to call home. It’s hard to explain. Just visit a few times and you’ll see.

While there are egos here, none are too big for the organization. We’re ambitious, not pretentious. We all have each other’s backs.

We push each other to do things differently, to learn a new skill, to share a success. We push you, but we won’t let you struggle.

In a perfect world, the lines between the two are blurred. We like to keep it light around here.

You’ll get a competitive salary. Paid time off. Full benefits.
