OkCupid Labs believes in the power of design to create and convey meaning, to drive experiences, and to shape products. Engaging capable and opinionated designers as part of the core team is critical to the way we work. If you have great design insights, incredible mental agility, and problem solving skills, we’d love to talk with you.
What we’re looking for:
  • A passion for simplicity in form and function (and the willingness to fight for that focus)
  • The belief that form and function should seldom be considered separately
  • Experience in shipping applications to the public, and learning from the public’s reaction
  • A strong sense of design and usability across multiple contexts (web, mobile, messaging)
  • Initiative, self-direction, and a sense of ownership of product design quality
  • The ability to design in HTML + CSS (fluency in HTML5 and CSS3)
  • Skill with visual design tools (Illustrator, Photoshop, or other goodness)
  • A love of creating fast, low-fidelity mockups (pen + paper, whiteboard, Omnigraffle, Balsamiq, etc)
  • An even greater love of light-weight and responsive implementations
Bonus Points:
  • The ability to communicate clearly about design rationale, and to add clarity to experiences
  • Skills in client-side development (Javascript, Coffeescript, Clojurescript, etc)
  • Familiarity with view templating languages (mustache, Less, haml/sass, erb, etc)
What’s it like to work at OkCupid Labs?
  • We’re a small but growing team where your opinion matters and your ideas become brand new companies.
  • We work on solving the difficult problems of bringing people together, and we try to solve those problems through design, research, math, data, and running experiments.
  • We work hard but also spend time outside of the office having fun. We bring speakers and food in, we send our team out to conferences and events, and we have a kitchen stocked with drinks and food.
  • We have an awesome new office based in SoMa (right near South Park), highly accessible by Muni and Caltrain.
  • On top of all of that, we have flexible hours, amazing benefits, and equity in the businesses we build.
To apply, please submit the following to the link below:
  • Your resume or Linkedin profile.
  • Your dribble, behance, github, blog, twitter, or design/code samples where useful.
  • A quick note on why you’re excited to join our team.
