San Francisco, CA
Visual Design - Building upon rough wireframes, produce beautiful, polished, high fidelity graphic designs for our products and features. Utilize layout, color, fonts, and motion to convey affordance, communicate semantics, and transmit information hierarchy, thereby maximizing the usability of the product. Produce original illustrations. Preference for clean, modern, minimal design aesthetic--but with soul and a bit of rebellious edge.
Marketing Creative - We are a small company, so our Design team also spends ~10% time supporting the marketing function. For example, you might occasionally be asked to help design our corporate website, produce external videos, design display ads, shoot original photos, etc.
User Research - Design and administer user research and usability tests, utilizing a variety of techniques, qualitative and quantitative, structured and ad hoc.
Design Talent - Digital portfolio containing a significant corpus of high quality user interface designs.
Cognitive and Communications Skill - Highly articulate in spoken and written English, built upon an underlying fundamental clarity of thought. General ability to synthesize simple, elegant, minimal designs for complex tasks.
Personal Maturity - Cognitive focus on building something of significance (e.g., vs. acquiring fancy titles and accumulating hierarchical reports). Willingness to roll up sleeves and do whatever it takes. Ego in check.
Education - BA/BS/BFA in art, product design, human-computer interaction, computer science or similar creative field preferred. Extra credit for working your ass off in high school and getting into a highly competitive school and/or strong academic performance in school.
