We’re looking for a Senior Web Graphic Designer who can create beautiful, intuitive web and mobile interfaces for a diverse set of clients and applications.
Hard skills
  • You should be a phenomenal web graphic designer with a substantial portfolio demonstrating a variety of design styles
  • You should be able to code your designs in well-structured, cross-browser-compatible HTML/CSS (if you would like to ignore Internet Explorer, you should probably not apply)
  • You should understand web usability in great depth and feel comfortable advocating for the user in all your interactions with the team
Soft skills
  • You should be capable of justifying and “selling” your graphic designs to customers
  • You should be comfortable leading interface design from initial client discussions through to implementation — selling good usability along the way
  • You should play well with others and be comfortable working with software developers, quality assurance personnel, and clients to come up with optimal and high-quality solutions
  • You should believe that less is usually more
  • You should believe that usability is in the eye of the user
  • You should have great communication skills
What we’d like (not required but a plus)
  • Experience with hand-coding your own JavaScript, and with implementing solutions using libraries like JQuery, Prototype, etc.
  • Experience conducting and/or observing user testing sessions
  • Experience doing software development in Rails or other languages
  • Experience designing mobile applications
What you’ll get
  • Collaboration with a team of really smart, passionate people
  • Relaxed, dog-friendly office in beautiful Boulder, Colorado
  • High-end Apple machines or allowance toward your own machine
  • Great work/life balance
  • Base salary depending on experience. Health, dental, and vision insurance. 401k. Profit sharing.
