Who we are

L+R is an innovation consultancy and design studio. We were launched to make bold ideas a reality. We are designers and thinkers, motivated by our insatiable desire to improve life through design. Since 2012, L+R has been creating value for those daring to revolutionize their processes, technologies, and customer experience. Our clients span industries and platforms, and we work closely with them to create, develop, and enhance their products and services; in short, we turn great ideas into efficient actions and beautiful experiences. With offices in Brooklyn and Barcelona, and a “remote first” team, L+R is an agile group of passionate strategists, designers, and engineers making an impact.

We are motivated by our desire to build products with economic, social, environmental, emotional, or physical benefits. Technology has a critical role in shaping society and we are guided by a commitment to responsible innovation. From the beginning, we’ve always believed that the most barrier-breaking solutions come from a deep trust in the design process, and that true impact happens when everyone at the table is operating from the place where strategy meets aesthetics. We strive every day to make truly great digital products that encompass that belief.

Who you are

When you aren’t making things happen at work, you’re designing for fun and/or nerding out about emerging technologies -- and you’re doing other stuff for fun, because all work and no play makes...well, you know the rest.

You have a deep appreciation for product design and the creative process, as well as an innate ability to lead and build relationships with teammates. You know what it takes to build something incredible, and you know how to bring out others’ unique skills to get there.

  • PMP, Prince2, PgMP, Sage or SCRUM/Agile certified

  • Foundational knowledge of engineering systems and design styles
  • The ability to think at a high level regarding product strategy and vision
  • Exceptional time management skills - compared to other people, you take half the time and are twice as good
  • Excitement about proactively contributing value to this organization
  • Passion for important issues that you want to be a part of
  • A sense of humor, and complex knowledge of at least one obscure topic (ex: you’re a topiary buff)
  • Details driven, you can catch the finest [DETAILS?? Lol] before sending over final deliverables to a client, complete with every note and piece of information requested
