We are OkCupid, a leading free online dating site. We’re growing like crazy due
to the buzz about our product, and in particular the user experience that has
changed the way people think about online dating.
You may have seen us in the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/13/technology/internet/13cupid.html) or on CNN (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J89OQ0O6Cc). We think you’ll love our blog (http://blog.okcupid.com); if you don’t, you probably won’t like us,
either.
We’re looking for a junior designer with strong front-end development skills
(XHTML/CSS/JS) to join our creative team. Along with the rest of TeamFrontEnd,
you’ll be improving the presentation and usability of the best dating site on
Earth.
We…
– Are a small team where your opinions matter
– Have complex problems that require simple and elegant solutions
– Work hard, play hard, and love what we do
– Are constantly growing and evolving
– Love math and science (just thought you should know)
You…
– Are detail oriented
– Have a solid understanding of UI/UX design
– Have data visualization experience
– Write clean, simple, easy-to-read code
– Rock XHTML/CSS with the best of them
– Know more than the basics of JavaScript (some knowledge of objects is a must)
– Have worked with SVN or another version control
– Are self-motivated and hard-working
– Love OkCupid (not really a prerequisite, but it’ll happen)
Bonus points if you…
– Have mobile design experience
– Have social media integration experience
– Have some advertising design experience
– Will beat our CEO at pool (we have a table in the office)
– Have serious ninja rope skills in Worms (we also have an Xbox)
– Read xkcd
Interested? Perfect.
