Job Description

You're a talented designer with a passion for both web and mobile interfaces. You're extremely passionate about designing and using web apps, websites, and mobile apps. You're always exploring the latest and greatest. You keep a portfolio or blog of new design patterns and interesting UI treatments, which you usually explore in your next project. You abide by Steve Krug's philosophy of minimizing thinking in interfaces, thus creating simple solutions to complex questions. As a designer, you love to discuss and critically dissect your work and the work of your peers because you believe the best designer is one that improves with feedback. Above all, you can describe your work as efficient, inspired, and beautiful.

Each day you'll work with both the User Experience and Engineering teams to create beautiful interfaces that reach users around the world. A large part of your job will be to conceptualize and design original ideas that bring simplicity and ease of use to complex design issues.

Partner with Design Research to inform and improve interfaces and workflows
Visualize complex sets of data in ways that are easy to comprehend
Work with Engineering to guide final implementation of design concepts

Experience developing consumer and/or commercial web application interfaces
Proven track record and a passion for designing compelling user experiences

Strong visual design skills, including an eye for good typography, composition, and use of color
Fluid ability to design in Photoshop, OmniGraffle, and Illustrator
Experience in creating various prototype methods and knowledge of best practices
Ability to multitask, prioritize projects, and communicate progress and expected milestones

Bonus Points

Participation with the larger professional design community
Experience with front-end web techonlogies (HTML, CSS, JS) and an understanding of how they play into interaction design
We pay special attention to those that are looking to create new experiences, not just re-purpose the old. Special consideration will be given to those that show entrepreneurial spirit, are looking to mold the organization, and help create a better agile development environment.

Communication
