The Bad
  • Less structure and certainty than a funded startup.
  • Fairly tight budget until we raise a round.

Sorry, we will not be able to sponsor any visas.

Job Perks: stocked fridge; espresso + coffee machine; office is near major subway lines; located in the heart of subway

CloudPhysics: Designer

(Mountain View, CA) Designers – Help us bring beauty & soul to Enterprise-class software!  

CloudPhysics is a well-funded (Series C at $15 million) and rapidly growing (approx. 30 people) startup based in Mountain View, CA. Our product is like a ‘Fitbit’ for virtual datacenters, providing IT admins and architects valuable insights on what’s working and what’s not--enabling them to improve performance, ensure stability and reduce costs. We have thousands of users and several customers already!

We are looking for a curious, talented and skilled Designer to join us in elevating the UX of our web-based SaaS product to the next level. We aspire to bring the elegance and novelty of products like Nest, Tesla and Apple to the enterprise-IT space. We’re well on our way, and this role offers a great opportunity to be on the forefront of a revolution in IT-management and “Big Data” UX. You will be a fully integrated member of the CloudPhysics team, working full-time and on-site at our office in Mountain View, CA. This includes collaborating with our Director of UX and UI engineers. We rely upon analytical skills, customer research, and expert creativity to deliver novel solutions.  We embrace startup life with intense table tennis matches, hot sauce tastings from our collection, and of course, our always “interesting” team lunches :-)

What about the work? As a Designer, you’ll be tackling a range of juicy problems in the realm of virtual datacenter analytics: 

  • A fresh on-boarding experience: how can we bring clever thinking here?
  • A well-crafted partner portal: how can we make this elegant yet powerful?
  • An innovative way to build custom reports: how can this be flexible and contextual?
  • Metaphors for analytics: We want ‘dashboards’ that don’t look or act like traditional ‘dashboards’. It’s a crazy yet fun paradox!
  Excited? To join our team you should exhibit these qualities: 
  • Ability to think strategically about the product UX, that aligns with identified problems to support our growing business.
  • Ability to focus your attention on pixel-level visual design details for consistency and clarity sake.
  • Enjoy mocking up, prototyping, and validating your ideas, while refactoring useful feedback.
  • Confident enough to use your judgment to take ownership and self-initiative for a project, yet be open to non-designers giving candid feedback to improve your work.
  • Great verbal & visual communication skills, able to articulate the rationale (or inspiration) for your decisions. Comfortable jumping up and scribbling madly on a white board!
  • Eagerness to help improve our design process. Just like with our product, we constantly iterate on our process, too. Experience working within an Agile or Lean context is a big plus!
BONUS: Strong ability to prototype your designs with HTML/CSS or your favorite tool to illustrate behaviors to internal stakeholders as well as external customers.  

SUPER BONUS: Expertise in visual production of original, high quality visual assets for various screens, including Retina and mobile devices.

Your daily tasks & deliverables will include: 
  • Brainstorm, sketch, wireframe, and mock-up concepts and solutions of varying fidelity levels. Quickly, with lots of options! These may be shown to our engineers or Sales VP or CEO.
  • Map out the flows and draft storyboards for various use cases, illustrating pros/cons and alternatives.
  • Finalize production quality graphics for delivery and implementation with our UI engineers.
  • Supporting creative tasks such translating research findings into posters or other “UX Propaganda” for the company. Or postcards, stickers, tattoos...
  • Create interactive prototypes with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to pass off to our developers.
  Desired skills & experience: 
  • 3+ years experience in a fast-paced, iterative, Agile/Lean environment
  • Expertise in creating UI mock-ups & storyboards for user feedback, using standard Adobe CS tools
  • Experience translating user research findings into new or iterative solutions, for UI implementation with UI Devs
  • BONUS: Ability to prototype modern, fresh behaviors using HTML/CSS/JavaScript
  • BS or MS in product design, interaction design, graphic design, or equivalent degree
  To apply, send your resume and online portfolio link to the Director of UX Uday Gajendar, uday@cloudphysics.com. Please include the position you are applying for in the subject of your email. Please include the following: 
  • Links to projects you found most challenging or compelling and why. Describe the challenges these presented, your solution and outcome(s) of your work. Tip: Show us your work--we want to see deeper than shiny screenshots. Sketches, photos, wireframes? Bring it on!
  • 100 words on what excites you about design, any products that inspire you, any design heroes and/or any ‘big problems’ you’d love to tackle. Tell us why you’re a designer!
    About CloudPhysics

  • Help develop marketing strategies and innovative promotions
  • Design interactive and graphical elements for our application as well as our customers.
  • Collaborate closely with other developers and graphic designers.
  • Participate on multiple projects from concept through completion without continual supervision.
  • Provide quality control over visual concepts and designs.
  • Learn quickly and contribute fully while working independently from a home or remote office.
Things you really need to have:
  • Sufficient quality experience designing with interactive and print media

Canvas: Lead Ruby on Rails Engineer

(New York, NY) Canvas is seeking a Lead Ruby on Rails Engineer to join our growing technical team. Come help us build highly interactive, multiplatform sites and applications for some of the world’s leading brands including The High Line, NBC, Showtime and the Smithsonian Channel.

We’re looking for a lead engineer with experience architecting, building and maintaining test-driven, object-oriented and modular projects. Our main framework of choice is Ruby on Rails though those we often work with javascript frameworks like AngularJS or Ember.js. All of the work we do excels in both engineering and design, so the right engineer for this position should feel comfortable working with front end engineers. If you enjoy building products from soup to nuts, this is the right job. This is a full time coding position which means there is a mixture of both green field code and updates to existing code bases. We strongly encourage growth and development amongst our teams so the person filling this role would be expected to continue their own education both in and out of work while also working to mentor junior engineers.

Here are some qualities of the people we think would do well in this position:

  • Tenacious: There is often the right way and the quick way to get things done. You know how and when to implement the quick way, but constantly strive for the right way.
  • Resourceful: We have many different clients with many different problems. We’re looking for someone who feels comfortable working across stack and even across platform. You don’t need to be an expert in everything, but have experience with a lot.
  • Open: We’re looking for someone who is willing to help teach and innovate at Canvas. Code you write may be open sourced, discussed in blog posts or presented at meetups and conferences. We want you to help us lead the charge.
We're looking for engineers who:
  • "Get" Programming: This is a senior level position and we’re a company who likes to hire and mentor junior engineers. Our clients’ projects sometimes mean having thousands of people looking at our work, per second. These things mean that our senior engineers need to have a deep knowledge of Rails and the Web stack.
  • Can Scale: Our clients are all very different and have very different needs. We're looking for someone who can help us build projects at the right level of scale. Building a project for a primetime TV Show has different requirements than building an internal application. You’re able to recognize the difference between.
  • Know How to Plan: We believe in writing tests, prototyping where appropriate, and measuring twice and cutting up PSDs once. You're comfortable working with other engineers to architect an application and follow through in building it. Don’t worry—we’re flexible and able to change as needed. But, there is always a game plan.
  • Keep on Pushing: We pride ourselves on being a company with a great work-life balance. That doesn't mean there aren't some late nights here and there, though. We want team members who are going to keep on pushing right through the finish line.
Things we bet engineers would like to know about us:
  • We care about our build process: We use tools like CircleCI, HipChat, RSpec, Cucumber, Capybara and a load of others to make engineering at Canvas a treat. That means that the right engineer for this role is someone who wants to be helping the team work smarter, not harder.
  • We use the right tools for the job: We love Rails, but are always looking at new technologies. After all, to us, Rails is a framework and a means to an end, not a dogma. We've been enjoying working with different JavaScript frameworks and toolsets like AngularJS, Ember.js and React and are keeping a close eye on the right project to use Go for.
  • We spend time to try new things: We organize pizza and screencast nights where we watch screencasts and try out new technology while eating delicious pizza. And when we have a little downtime we have hack days where we build out new tools we may want to use in the office (right now we’re working on a really smart communication hub for engineering.)
This is a great opportunity to join our team and make a contribution at all levels of development, from prototyping through delivery. If you're interested, send us an e-mail and we'll set up a time to chat. We may ask you the worst movie you’ve seen twice. It’s just how we roll.

Job Perks: Insurance, 401(k), Bagel Wednesdays, Bi-Weekly Team Hangs, Bi-Weekly Pizza and Screencasts Sessions, Book/Conference/Training Budget, MacBook Airs and Big Monitors, Cold Drinks and Yummy Snacks, Dart Board, 490 square feet of white boards, Discounted ZipCar Memberships and Rates

: iOS Engineer

(San Francisco, CA) About Us:
Scribd is a technology company based in San Francisco. We are building the world's online library and we're looking for talented people to help us. 

Scribd's book subscription service (sometimes called the "Netflix for books") gives readers unlimited access to over 400,000 books from over 900 publishers for a low monthly fee. Using Scribd is like bringing a national library into your home, where you can browse and read as much as you want from your tablet, phone, or computer. 

Scribd is already profitable and one of the largest sites on the web, with a global user base of over 80 million. But our journey is only 1% finished. We are still a very small team iterating rapidly, and we're looking for excellent engineering minds to take us to the next level. 

The Role:
Scribd is now a top 10 app in the eBooks category, and we've grown our installs by a factor of 10 over the last 6 months. We also have incredible user engagement: one of our users spent 42 hours using the Scribd iPhone app in one week!

But we've done all this with an iOS team of just 1-2 people. To take the app to the next level, we're looking for an iOS Developer to join our team and help us build the Netflix for eBooks!

Our goal is to invent the world's best reading experience for mobile devices. To do that, we need to make an amazing reader for all kinds of written content, get offline & syncing exactly right, and build a content discovery experience that always finds you something you actually want to read.

As an iOS Engineer at Scribd, you'll have the opportunity to learn from our small but excellent (if we do say so ourselves!) team and solve real challenges for an app that is more than just the hottest game - we truly believe that we're building a meaningful product, and that we can get people to read more by making reading easier and more beautiful on mobile devices. 

While we still have work to do, you should have a look at our iOS app. We'd love to know what you think. Scribd on the App Store 

Our Ideal Candidate Has:
* A CS degree or an equivalent background in software engineering prior to moving to mobile.
* At least one year of iOS development experience.
* Solid understanding of iOS frameworks and development.

Bonus Points For:
* An impressive iOS project - in the app store, open source, or something you can share with us. 
* Great design & product sense.
* Experience in areas besides iOS - Android, web development, etc.
* Experience building book, magazine, PDF or news reading applications.
* Experience with Core Data.

What We Offer:
* Competitive base salary
* Full benefits (medical, dental, vision)
* Create your own workstation with any type of equipment
* Free catered meals from local restaurants, three times a day
* Frequent company activities ranging from weekly happy hours to group indoor skydiving
* Generous equity to give you true skin in the game
* Flat organizational structure that ensures your influence on products we build
* Imagine mixing go-karts and quadricopters with free food and company ski trips!

Please Note:
* International candidates willing to relocate are welcome to apply!

The Sourcery will be the first point of contact.

Flickerbox, Inc.: Web Developer

(San Francisco, CA and Portland, OR) Web Developer (PHP/HTML5) for San Francisco/Portland Web Marketing Agency 

Are You Awesome AND Modest? Well versed in PHP? Either a Front-End Developer or a PHP-based CMS Developer? Do you know your way around a LAMP stack? If so, Flickerbox, Inc. is looking for you. This is a full-time, on-site position at either our San Francisco or Portland office.

You've got excellent attention to detail and you understand that great communication starts with listening. Maybe you've even been lucky enough to learn, first hand, that ego and inflexibility can kill the creative process. A strong work ethic is part of your core because you love what you do and you thrive in an environment where you can teach and learn every day.

You are excited to work on all aspects of a site and you love clean, well-structured, modern markup that breathes life into static comps. Your markup is tight, clean, and more than ready to face a world full of browser quirks and unanticipated end-user situations. You communicate well in a team environment, discussing hairy IE layout issues, jQuery form validation options, site deployment best practices, and the review, selection, and integration of new libraries and technologies. You might even be the type to skip lunch because of a lively LAMP conversation, even if you've never edited a httpd.conf file by hand before.

You've worked with Drupal as a themer or module developer and are comfortable with the essential core and contributed modules. Maybe you've customized WordPress templates and added your contributions to the functions.php file to extend WordPress in a clean and maintainable way. You are current with the latest trends in PHP development and strive to employ only the most useful and valuable bits.

Your local Mac work-flow is something you're constantly improving; there are plenty of tools out there and the ones you're using make life easy, fast, and fun. Of course you're familiar with Homebrew, Subversion/Git, Responsive layouts, various grid systems, and JavaScript frameworks. You've got your favorites but are able to make the best choices based on the needs of the client. You could talk forever, and sometimes do, about the myriad of tools you've tried and which ones you can't live without.

If you've got hands on experience with any of the following, let us know. We use all of these things, daily: revision control systems, bug tracking systems, content management systems, Salesforce, marketing automation systems like Marketo, HubSpot and Eloqua, wikis, web server environments, and technical writing.

We are super busy creating, updating, and improving the websites of technology companies in the Bay Area who use the web to find and aquire new customers. To that end, we are looking for you to contribute to our endless internal conversations so we can deliver great work to our clients.

Flickerbox, Inc. is a fourteen-year-old web marketing agency headquartered in San Francisco. We specialize in website development, support, and marketing automation. Our clients include Okta, Platfora, LiveOps, Sumo Logic, Pure Storage, and Pentaho, just to name a few. We offer excellent benefits and a fun, vibrant working environment.

***** The Fine Print (attention to detail matters) *****

If you are qualified and would like to apply, DO NOT send a resume, just answer the following questions and reply in a plain-text email. Yes, it's really that easy. ;)

1. Please tell us a little about yourself; how you meet the requirements listed above, and why you'd like to work with us.

2. Confirm that you are looking for full-time employment and are available to work on-site at either our office in San Francisco or our office in Portland.

3. Provide a link to 1 or 2 websites you've worked on recently (just your favorites) with a short description around your role in the development process.

4. Let us know how much you're looking to make per year.

Thanks for your interest.

However, almost all of our existing code is in PHP, so a strong knowledge of object-oriented PHP is a must.

This is a full-time position based out of our office located at the intersection of residential Williamsburg (yes, that one) and industrial Bushwick. We have a large loft space bathed in light, filled with plants and all the espresso you can drink.

    The job requires that you have:

    • The ability to juggle multiple projects with varying deadlines
    • A good understanding of design and an eye for detail
    • A positive attitude and a sense of humor
    • Curiosity
    • Willingness to work from Brooklyn
    Necessary skills:
    • Object Oriented PHP5+
    • At least one MVC PHP framework (CodeIgniter is a plus, as it powers some of our existing projects.)
    • Thorough experience with a particular CMS (Let us know what you like, make a case for it. Not Wordpress please.)
    • HTML, CSS & JS (Bootstrap & other frameworks included)
    • MySQL
    Useful skills: 
    • The ability to merge clients specs with design and develop a production-ready product
    • An understanding of web analytics
    • Able to clean motorcyle carburators
    • Working with servers
    • Version control
    • An interest in learning new techniques
     Please email us your resume with cover letter and a link to work you've done. Github, personal site, live projects, whatever works. Ideally we'd like to see some actual code, written in PHP.

    Job Perks: Healthcare provided, blocks from Robertas Pizza & dog-friendly.

    Apply: - In your cover letter, tell us about yourself, what you do when you're not slinging code and why you think you'd like to work here. By the way, what's your favorite CMS and why?

    The Hired Guns: Lead Product Manager

    (New York, NY) This young, Europe-based e-commerce player is making a big splash across the pond, as they have already surpassed their top competitor in online sales. The time is right for global expansion, and New York has been established as the center of their North American operations. This is where you come in. We are looking for a Lead Product Manager who can take ownership of its US products to ensure that they are truly world-class while also locally relevant.

    The product management and technical talent in Europe is truly amazing. This upstart company has only been around for a little more than two years. Yet with an extremely talented staff that hails from some of the top brands in Silicon Valley, they have built an incredible product. The Europe team will be at the hub, and you will be a spoke (in the hub-and-spoke model). You will be tasked with making the US product experience (both web and mobile) best in class, owning the local product decisions in the context of the greater global product evolution, as you are ultimately a part of the global team. The Lead Product Manager’s focus will be on ensuring that users’ experience with the product is one that surprises and delights them. This will involve customer research, competitive research, prototyping, launching, learning, and improving.

    The team works Agile methodology, and they believe in moving fast, to launch early and often. Constant improvement’s the name of the game here, and so is thoughtful design.

    Candidate Profile
    In your career, you’ve worked on a variety of products that delivered an impact. Mobile and e-commerce, particularly B2C, are great things to have, but what makes you ideal for this role is your experience working on a global product. Perhaps you have been in the HQ for a global product, thinking about the regional versions, or possibly you have been in the regional office of a global brand, where you focused on how to localize its global product. Either way, you understand how to think global even if the task at hand is to act local. Each stage of your development has come with increased responsibilities and bigger chances to make a difference in both UX and overall design. Your colleagues say that you’re a natural problem-solver, whether it’s for more rational workflows or for a more intuitive feature.

    You are as skilled at talking with non-product stakeholders as you are with technical folks, and you’re good at negotiating and making sure that their needs are being met.

    Because the quality and quantity of communication with HQ will help determine success or failure in this role, your ability to communicate extremely clearly and efficiently isn’t just lip service. It’s a core strength of yours.

    Let’s face it, all those distances and time zones can create friction for getting things done. So the person who’s already conquered problems like these will be way ahead of the game. Such candidates will also be in a good position to understand how to balance the needs of a core, scalable product against providing specific customizations tailored to a local audience.

    As we said above, this is a pure Agile shop, and it’s been that way from the first. So if you aren’t quite on board with grooming user stories, Scrum planning, and constant iteration, it’s probably not the right fit.

    Nitty Gritty
    What these guys value most is someone who can deeply connect with a use case in order to empathize with its users, understand their needs and point of view, and then translate that into product improvements. Lead with your successes doing this and you will move straight to the front of the class.

    Net-Net
    This company is doing so much that’s right. This is a chance to be part of their success as they go about transforming a new and virtually untapped market for their products in the US.

The right Hired Gun for this very choice gig has a combination of digital media sensibility and e–commerce smarts, as well as the ability to sweat the details while seeing the big picture.

    Nitty Gritty
    As Senior Product Manager, your mission will be to deliver premium audio content that sparks learning through literate entertainment. You will drive roadmaps for the web and mobile and contribute to the company’s broader vision for serving the customer. You’ll have ownership and accountability in spades.

    You’ll work with senior Product leadership to turn high-level strategic vision into actionable tactics that provide users with a delightful, seamless, personalized experience. You’ll be the product owner for one or more development teams, leading sprint grooming, prioritization, and definition efforts. You’ll also define and guide product roadmaps and set expectations with stakeholders.

    You’re going to be working closely with marketing, design, finance, legal, and more to deliver products that reach a global audience. You’ll identify and resolve strategic issues that may impair the organization’s ability to meet its strategic, financial, and technical goals. You’ll make data-driven decisions, but you will be called upon to make the final call even if the data isn’t there.

    Last but not least, you’ll eat, sleep, and breathe digital media trends and user behaviors. Learn the competition, identify the white space, and find opportunities for growth.

    Candidate Profile
    You’re a seasoned Senior Product Manager who knows the e-commerce space, especially when it comes to streaming media. You’re a proactive problem solver who doesn’t wait for the execs to point you toward an issue. Rather, you see a problem and solve it. Permission is great, but you’d rather ask forgiveness.

    You’re at ease with developers, user experience with designers, product marketers, and executive leadership. You’ve got a demonstrated track record of partnering with cross-functional teams to achieve business results despite differing goals.

    You understand the relevant apps and platforms for e-commerce and streaming digital media. You know the major players in the space and have a POV on who’s doing it right, who’s missing the boat, and where the next big opportunity lies.

    Inside Skinny
    A go get ‘em mentality is an absolute must for this role. This company is globally recognized as a ceaseless innovator, and that doesn’t happen by taking a wait-and-see attitude. If you’ve got laurels, don’t rest on ‘em.

    Net-Net
    This is a huge opportunity for a veteran Product pro with e-comm/media chops. The brand is huge, the scope is global, and the upside never stops.

    All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law.

    The Hired Guns: UX/UI Designer

    (New York, NY) One of the largest players in global media is aggressively expanding their US operation, and they need an extremely well-rounded and talented UX Designer to help them continue to grow the ways in which their content is created and read.

    Nitty Gritty
    The recently installed Director of Product here is anxious to increase our client’s offerings, and that’s where you’ll come in. Working with the in-house team of product managers, a UX/UI lead, a development lead, and customer service/account management specialists, you’ll be creating some pretty amazing mobile apps as well as web-based products, primarily for lifestyle and pop-culture verticals. Cross-platform redesigns as well as working on smaller but still-important interactive fixes will all be part of a day’s work here.

    We’ll be honest, this role needs to thread the needle a bit: strong visual skills and a grasp of Adobe CC are very important, but it’s equally important that you’re able to wrangle a wireframe, whether it’s with OmniGraffle or Balsamiq. And being able to roll up your sleeves and get ‘er done will serve you well—this is a place where being able to do is just as important as being able to plan and command.

    Success here will be all about showing that you can manage your team effectively, and also that you’re more than ready to take on more responsibilities once you’ve been proven. Because the way things are going, that growth will be right around the corner.

    Candidate Profile
    You’re an experienced mid-level or earlier designer with strong natural talent and well as deep experience in UX and UI, e-commerce, platform/software design, and working with developers. You’re really good at keeping good design and usability in mind at all times; you know that design can make or break engagement. You were an early believer in “mobile first,” and you know what it takes to make sure that both mobile and web products succeed.

    You’re also an extremely good communicator who can work with executives and department heads as smoothly as you can with developers and other design/UX pros. Being a good communicator’s key, you know? And because this company doesn’t make a move without quality data, be sure that you know how to use findings from real-life results to plan next steps.

    Experience working in an Agile environment is also important to this role, as is being able to work cross-functionally with development, business, and design.
    (And we don’t want to jinx things, but if you have some knowledge of front-end HTML and/or CSS and JavaScript, that would be amazing.)

    Inside Skinny
    Our client might be open to a freelance-to-FT setup, so don’t be shy if you’re not ready for full-time at the moment.

    Net-Net
    This company’s doing lots of really interesting things in its space—this is a great opportunity to fill out your CV with some really amazing product.

    Company confidential: Visual Designer

    (New York, NY) A major player in consumer entertainment and technology is seeking an amazing visual designer to join their R&D/skunk works department, which develops cutting-edge products for several years down the road. They’ve gotten used to winning awards for their very sexy and intuitive designs, and they’re dead set on keeping that streak going. They need a Visual Designer who can help lead the way. Do you have what it takes?

    Nitty Gritty
    This R&D department is pretty sweet: constant innovation is key. The future-forward products they make are a mix of projects done at HQ’s bequest, other sponsored products, and shoot-the-moon concepts. All of them are centered around ideas for smart, “Internet of Things” home products—think Nest or Quirky, but in a consistent ecosystem/user interface.

    To get this gig, a great inherent visual sense is essential, though being able to back up your decisions based on UX findings and other data is a close second. You’ll be working with the Engineering and Product teams as you go about creating a crisp, clean, modern look for the products, whether for mobile, the web, or for other interfaces.

    Although you may have more experience with one platform or device than the others, you have a good sense of the broad trends in user-centered, intuitive design, and you pride yourself on always being able to stay a little ahead of those trends yourself.

    Because this is a small team, you’ll need to be able to move quickly and help finish projects that are already in progress, such as experience and visual designs, or UX guides.

    Profile
    Our client wants a designer with fresh and clean visual designs, someone who’s anxious to grow as part of a tight-knit team, and who has a portfolio that reveals clear development, through lines, and rock-solid results.

    An eye for innovation and graceful design is what’s going to get you the nod here. Also very valuable: good basic exposure to a variety of design needs and solutions—a mix of agency/tech/startup experience, experience working with large-scale site builds and mobile apps, and working with developers and UX specialists to bring a design to completion.

    Inside Skinny
    This company is quietly becoming the place to be if you’re a digital innovator. The team here is filling up with some of the best minds in digital products, and they’re a discerning bunch. To get the golden ticket, you’ll need to show us a stellar portfolio filled with products that are as functional as they are beautiful.

    Net-Net
    This is a rare chance to design products that will be in literally millions of homes—don’t let it pass you by.

    All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law.

    Company confidential: Senior Director, Product Design

    (New York, NY) Our client, a household name that in the past couple years has been revolutionizing the world of digital and streaming radio and music, is after a Senior Director of Product Design to ensure that it keeps innovating like crazy, while also holding it to its commitment to making products that are as unputdownable and fun to use as they can be.

    Nitty Gritty
    As the Senior Director, you will report to the Senior Vice-President of Design and be heading a department of UX and UI designers and will also work with a cross-functional team of Product Managers, Engineering, and Customer Support. Your utmost goal will be to ensure that the customer experience across all current and future streaming products is coherent, consistent, slick, and simply outstanding.

    Knowing all about the possibilities and limitations of mobile is essential, but so is a nuanced knowledge of current design trends and a passion for the next generation of items, including the Apple Watch, as well as items designed for the smart home and for the car.

    Experience with integrating and adapting a consistent look and UX across multiple apps and other products is also going to be key to getting this role. Our client’s list of touchpoints is basically impossible to match–from car dashboards to laptops to tablets to mobile phones to Roku and other streaming devices to wearables and beyond.

    Profile
    You’re a visionary Product Designer with a passion for the world of UX and UI. You’ve headed up the design team for at least several very high-profile, customer-facing products in your career so far, and you’re able to clearly explain what factors in their design helped make them a success.

    In other words, you’re the kind of designer who can define, validate, and defend your vision with the best of them. You know what makes the products you touch better than the competition’s, and you can clearly articulate their benefits to other stakeholders.

    You understand all the broad trends in design, but you’re also able to transcend those when necessary, using your own insights as well as customer data and analytics.

    You’re able to crank out prototypes with the best of them, and you also know how to conduct consumer research to get at the rich data that’s sometimes required to make a decision. And you still like to occasionally do your own design work when you can.

    Inside Skinny
    We’ve spent a little time looking at this company’s list of innovations, and the number of cool and genuinely useful tools and projects they’ve completed is really impressive. If you’re ready to get with the band, then get your resume in front of us ASAP.

    Net-Net
    This is a major design role at a really strong brand that’s building products that consumers can’t seem to get enough of (seriously, it’s likely they’ll be at 100 million total users in a couple more years). It doesn’t get any better than that.
    All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law.

For the past 8 years, we've focused our time and energy continuously improving the time tracking, invoicing and reporting experience of Harvest. This year, we've added a way for our customers' to plan their future time with Forecast.

    Harvest began as a team of 3 and today we're a group of 35, smart, respectful and interesting people. We're based in New York City, but we work from all over the world – from Lithuania to British Columbia with many, many points in between.

    About You

    You have written a lot of JavaScript (and maybe some CoffeeScript) and your teammates look to you for expertise and examples of best practices.
    You enjoy learning about new things.

    Though JavaScript excites you, you're not a one trick pony. You've got experience with other languages and aren't afraid to pitch in when the task calls for it.

    You take responsibility for the quality of your code. You write tests because you know it will make your code better.

    In addition to writing code, you are very good at reading it. You are able to dig into unfamiliar codebases in order to understand a bug and solve a problem.

    You are an excellent communicator — you write clearly and you actively cooperate with your teammates, whether they be local or remote. You take feedback graciously and you help your fellow developers improve when you review their code.

    Your location allows you at least four hours of overlap with a 9am-5pm US/Eastern workday.

    About Us

    We work together in small, nimble teams. We believe in keeping things simple, deploying often, and focusing our efforts on high-quality incremental iterations, rather than laborious, months-long release processes.

    • Be able to clearly communicate the thought behind your design to internal teams and clients.
    • Have experience in presenting work to clients for feedback, but also know when to gently push back and defend your work.
    • Have flexibility to work both with and without strong client brand guidelines, full or templated wireframes, and with front-end developers to bring designs to life.
    • Be positive and enthusiastic!
     Requirements
    • 5+ years experience as UI designer 
    • Impressive visual portfolio, with a demonstrated focus on mobile application design

You should champion your work and be ready to fight your corner, but with an awareness of what's best for the people who use it.

    We'll encourage you to be brave, take risks and fail without fear, because we believe in the value of the journey and in learning by making. We value complexity, but know it has to be communicated in meaningful ways. You'll be encouraged to showcase and speak about your work with the team every fortnight, and get the chance to attend events that'll help develop your thinking.

    • Top-of-the-line Apple kit

    • A strong understanding of social media platforms (especially Facebook, Twitter and Google +) 
    • The ability to analyze page interactions and engagement and offer creative and strategic feedback
    3. Assisting clients in creating and executing digital marketing campaigns
    On an on-going basis, the digital marketing project manager helps our clients drive site and social traffic and grow their overall business. Skills required: 
    • A true passion for digital technologies, tactics and products 
    • An ability to offer creative and strategic suggestions with respect to social, Web and email marketing efforts

    • An understanding of tools like Google Analytics and Facebook Insights
    • An understanding of SEO and PPC 
    • Basic knowledge of HTML/CSS
    So, what’s great about working at BCS Interactive?

    Currently, TMC seeks a DIGITAL STRATEGY DIRECTOR (DSD) to provide the necessary leadership to ensure the Interactive side of the agency has the proper operational controls, staffing and strategy in place to support current and new business, including our goals for growth.  The DSD is responsible for the department’s continued quality, profitability and growth of all products and functions, as well as the performance and development of those department staff members.

    • Play an active role on client engagements, serving as a digital strategy advisor to both agency account leads (internal) and clients (external).  Lead the development and presentation of Interactive products/services “business plans.” 
    • Codify and publish formal frameworks and methodologies for approaching digital assignments within the firm. 
    • Play an active role in new client acquisition and new business presentations. 
    • Provide methodological support, coaching, professional development and training to team members. Participate in evaluating the digital IQ of potential associates.

    : Software Engineer - Ruby on Rails Infrastructure @ Scribd

    (San Francisco, CA) About Us:
    Scribd is a technology company based in San Francisco, building the world's online library. Scribd is already the #2 rails site by traffic, but we have a long way to go and we're looking for talented people to help us.

    Scribd's book subscription service (sometimes called the "Netflix for books") gives readers unlimited access to over 400,000 books from over 900 publishers for a low monthly fee. Using Scribd is like bringing a national library into your home, where you can browse and read as much as you want from your tablet, phone, or computer. 

    Scribd is already profitable and one of the largest sites on the web, with a global user base of over 80 million. But our journey is only 1% finished. We are still a very small team iterating rapidly, and we're looking for excellent engineering minds to take us to the next level. 

    The Role:
    As one of the largest rails sites, Scribd has always pushed the envelope on what rails can do, and we've contributed some significant improvements back to the open source community. It's all been done by a small core team of rails engineers who have challenged the myth that "rails can't scale".

    We have a variety of challenging projects in our rails back-end. Here are a few examples of things we've worked on recently:
    * Organizing all the books in the world by synthesizing data provided by numerous partners 
    * Working with a social graph that's comparable to the size of Facebook's
    * Building a scalable image scaling and cropping proxy server to make it easy to get beautiful thumbnails
    * Building an image comparison engine that can do fuzzy matching lookups on millions of images in O(1) time

    As an infrastructure developer at Scribd, you'll work on a variety of back-end systems like these, building things mainly using rails but involving other languages and frameworks as appropriate. 

    Our Stack:
    Beyond rails, we use a variety of technologies, but don't expect you to know them already. Here are some of the things that you're likely to work with:
    * Ruby on rails
    * MySQL
    * Solr (search)
    * Scala (used for recommendation engine)
    * Twitter's "Scalding" framework: Scala on Mapreduce, (used for recommendation engine)
    * Java (used for search engine and analytics infrastructure)
    * Hive (primary datastore for our datawarehouse)
    * Hadoop (used extensively)
    * Hbase (used extensively)
    * Impala - one of the new "SQL on HDFS technologies"
    * Jenkins + Multijob (used for data processing)
    * Nginx
    * Redis
    * Sphinx

    Whether you're an expert with these tools now or you're looking to learn, if you can build software, read on!

    Our Ideal Candidate Has:
    * At least 2 years of web development experience
    * Experience working on web-scale infrastructure, or experience with ruby on rails and a strong desire to learn
    * A solid software engineering foundation, as evidenced by a CS degree or experience working on real-world systems
    * Independent projects / open source stuff we can play with. (Got a GitHub repository you're proud of or a coding blog? Let us know!)

    Bonus Points for Experience with any of the following:
    * Recommendation systems, machine learning, natural language processing, text analysis, search engines
    * Data warehousing, strong SQL skills, noSQL database technologies
    * Content ingestion systems and transcoding systems 

    What We Offer:
    * Competitive base salary
    * Full benefits (medical, dental, vision)
    * Create your own workstation with any type of equipment
    * Free catered meals from local restaurants, three times a day
    * Frequent company activities ranging from weekly happy hours to group indoor skydiving

    * Flat organizational structure that ensures your influence on products we build
    * Imagine mixing go-karts and quadricopters with free food and company ski trips!

    Palantir Technologies: Visual Designer

    (Multiple Locations) A world-changing company

    Palantir is a place where designers spend their days working on problems that matter. In our short history, we've empowered scientists monitoring the environment, prevented the spread of disease, taken down human trafficking networks, helped homeowners avoid foreclosure, prevented fraud in Medicare, and helped governments save billions.

    Sound exciting? We think so.

    The Product Design team


    We design the futuristic and visionary software from science fiction cinema — except ours is real, and is used to solve the world's most complex information problems. Our team's work has a profound impact across the company: we work on every feature and every interface that users touch — for desktop, mobile, and web. The design team is highly valued in the company for our vision, our ability to learn and adapt, and our creativity and inventiveness.

    The visual designer


    Enterprise software should be beautiful and compelling. We are helping to bring a new level of quality to people who have never had access to well-designed software at work: scientists, relief workers, civil servants, healthcare workers, and homicide detectives, just to name a few. Visual Designers have the space and the freedom to think deeply and holistically about the visual languages we use. We pay critical attention to typographic hierarchies, readability, space, color, tone, and balance.

    A great Visual Designer knows that form informs function and usability — that the surface layer doesn't exist in a vacuum — and that means the partnership with the Product Designer is a two-way conversation. We believe it is often important to have an owner for each of these facets. Dedicated roles help us ensure that we can meet the high bar of quality we’ve set for ourselves. Visual Designers own the look and feel of our products; together with Product Designers, User Researchers, and Product Engineers, we refine and evolve the quality of all Palantir software.

    What we value

    • Excellent communication skills. You have a proven ability to build great relationships, and convey and debate design rationale. You are the person that people can’t wait to collaborate with.
    • Empathy, not ego. We strive to understand our users and we fight to empower them.
    • A profound love of engineers. Palantir is an engineering company, and we get to work with some of the best in the world. Engineers realize our vision — and we realize theirs — and together we create software that our users love.
    • A highly iterative design process. We move fast, we listen, and we adapt. We rapidly incorporate feedback, and we relentlessly collaborate. You must be adept at giving and receiving critiques
    • A mastery of tools. We move with ease across software and fidelity, depending on the task at hand. Sketch.app, Hand-coding, Photoshop, Illustrator, or Keynote — and good old-fashioned pencil and paper.

    Apply: Please provide your portfolio for review! =)

The design team is highly valued in the company for our vision, our ability to learn and adapt, and our creativity and inventiveness.

    The product designer

    We are generalists that span many design disciplines: user research, information architecture, prototyping, ideation, interaction design, and sometimes visual design. Our artifacts come in many different forms and fidelities. We draw a lot, and we write a lot. We prototype with paper and Sharpies, Javascript, After Effects, and Keynote. We visit our users, listen, investigate, learn, and ideate. We rigorously share and promote our ideas, and constantly incorporate feedback and critique. Sometimes we’re out in front, exploring brand-new problem spaces, figuring out what to build. And sometimes we’re deep in the details of micro-interactions, figuring out how to build it. We lead feature teams in design exercises ranging from day-long design studios to week-long design sprints. A great Product Designer knows that form informs function and usability — that the surface layer doesn't exist in a vacuum — and that means the partnership with the Visual Designer is a two-way conversation. We believe it is often important to have an owner for each of these facets. Dedicated roles help us ensure that we can meet the high bar of quality we’ve set for ourselves. Product Designers own the user experience of our products along with Visual Designers, User Researchers, and Product Engineers. Together, we refine and evolve the quality of all Palantir software.What we value

    Creative Soapbox: Interactive Designer

    (Eugene, OR / Boise, ID) About the Position
    We are on the hunt for a passionate and highly-motivated individual to craft beautiful, but more importantly, enjoyable interactive experiences. The variety of the design problems you will solve matches the diversity of our clientele: big, burley applications to targeted micro-sites. Our team is small, so we need you to be self-motivated and dedicated. You need to be able to plough through the small stuff and take time to think through the important stuff. And know which is which.

    Who We Are
    Creative Soapbox is an interactive studio located in Boise, Idaho and Eugene, Oregon. We're HTML collared and green thumbed. We're paper boats and electronic cityscapes. Whatever the weather, whatever the media, our solutions are snapped and sewn to tell each project's unique story. As our name implies, our process is a method of listening, inspiring and projecting.

    Skills & Attributes

    User Interface Design
    You know your way around the building blocks of UX: wireframes, site maps, user flows, user personas, mood boards. And you know how to create them.

    Visual Design
    You are rooted in classic design principles and daydream about the golden ratio and what you can do with it. You may be inspired by tactile things like maps or old wallpaper. You can translate your inspiration into icons, colors and ideas. You want to design interfaces beyond simple brochure sites. Your designs consider multiple devices and screen sizes. And of course, you use something pedantic to build your masterpieces, like Adobe Create Suite or better, Sketch.

    Client Interaction
    You enjoy working directly with clients. You are comfortable presenting your work and talking about the reasoning behind design decisions.

    Front-End Development
    We believe that knowing how a design will be sliced and molded into HTML/CSS makes you a better interactive designer. You are familiar with web standards and want to know more about HTML5 and CSS3. You can make simple things work with jQuery. You may not be fully comfortable with the command line, but you aren't scared of it.

    Communication
    Whether it be virtual, face-to-face, written or verbal, you can clearly communicate explanations and ideas in a professional manner. This may seem obvious, but it seeps into every aspect of the job: from brand guidelines to blog posts to email to commenting in a project management system. This doesn't mean dry, it just means thoughtful.

    Bonus Points

    • Experience with HTML email platforms (CampaignMonitor, etc)
    • Experience with Git
    • Experience with mobile app development (iOS or Android)
    • Experience with Ruby on Rails
    • Knowledge of Backbone or other Javascript frameworks
    Educational Requirements
    Bachelor's degree in relevant field and 3+ years experience.

    How to Apply
    This position is available immediately and is full-time. Salary depends on experience.
    • Tell us who you are, a link to your portfolio and résumé
    • Why you want to work at Creative Soapbox

    Job Perks: We are a small, passionate studio working on challenging projects. You'll get honor system time-off, conference and professional advancement budget and work with the latest and greatest tools to get the job done.

    Apply: Please no phone calls or in-person visits. Qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview. NO RECRUITERS PLEASE. No unsolicited services or offers.

    The Wirecutter: Creative Director

    (United States) The Wirecutter family is all about helping people find the best gadgets, tools, and supplies. We do the heavy lifting of sorting through all the testing and reviews to filter out only great stuff.

    Now we’re ready to take on one of our toughest challenges yet; finding the best creative director for our growing family.

    Our ideal creative director is able to handle being a one-person creative team, comfortable working solo as well as managing the hiring and directing of freelancers and production staff. We want someone who loves to design and wants to be directly involved on all levels.

    The creative director is the steward of our brand, heading complete redesigns of existing publications, crafting new identities, and working on long-term strategic goals. This requires an eye for detail alongside a vision for the bigger picture and the future needs of the company. We’re not designers, we need someone with the passion for building something from the ground up.

    Day to day responsibilities will include:

    • UX and UI improvements, production of images, illustrations, and infographics, or the oversight of such elements as created by contractors or staff
    • Working with editorial and programmers to make articles as strong as possible
    • Maintaining a rolodex of freelance graphic artists and photographers and managing their time and work
    • Direction for the brand across social media and promotional outlets
    • Being a conduit between the edit and tech sides of the publications
    More long term strategic thinking might include:
    • The hiring of a day-to-day production art team
    • Creating and implementing a strategy for video, including hiring necessary team members
    • Redesigning existing sites (the Wirecutter and the Sweethome) as well as overseeing the creation of new sites, hand in hand with the editorial and technical teams
    • Exploring custom advertising strategies and opportunities
    The ideal candidate for the position will be well versed in standard graphic design tools (Photoshop and Illustrator) as well as being at least conversant in modern web design technology (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript). Coding experience is a plus but not strictly necessary. If you have experience with eCommerce or retail operations we’d love to know more about that.

    This is not an entry-level position: At least 4 years of industry experience is expected, and so is a portfolio of work demonstrating competence and creativity in the areas described above.

    Prospective creative directors should have strong communication skills, the ability to lead and manage a team, a strong sense of branding and identity, and excellent organizational capabilities. This is an opportunity to work with an established team of industry veterans, while being a major cog in a growing and expanding company.

    Working Remotely
    The Wirecutter is a 100% remote organization and as such the candidate should feel comfortable (and preferably have a good deal of experience) with this arrangement. You should feel comfortable conducting a majority of your correspondence with the team over the phone, team chat, IM and video calls.

    This is a very important aspect of the position. You must be able to not only motivate yourself in an environment of limited person-to-person contact as well as engage with your team without physically being in the same state or country as they are.

    Apply: To apply, send a cover letter, link to a portfolio of related work, and resume to jobs@thewirecutter.com with the subject line “Creative director”.

    Nathalie Lussier Media Inc.: Project Manager for Ambitious Media Company

    (Denton, TX / North Dallas, TX) In our opinion, there are two sides to being a stellar project manager — managing projects and managing people. 

    We’re looking for someone who is absolutely INCREDIBLE at both!

    No programming experience required.

    About You
    So let’s start by talking about you. You are outrageously organized — color-coding, folders, and systems are the stuff of dreams. Taking an idea and turning it into a timeline of clear deliverables actually sounds like a fun way to spend a day to you!

    You are incredibly skilled at both micro and macro thinking — making sure the big picture is always moving forward by way of all the tiny details that need to get done.

    You also love people — you’re a natural mentor and sounding board, and knowing that you helped someone else succeed gives you enormous satisfaction. You love coaching people to do their best, seeing people’s strengths and talents and drawing it out of them even more. You naturally pick up on subtle team dynamics and are able to proactively jump in to assuage a concern or just offer a few words of encouragement.

    You are an incredible problem solver — you are strategic, clever, and quick on your feet. You’ll be the go-to person when we’re trying to figure out a sticky issue.

    You are extremely resourceful and great at playing detective — you can unravel any problem and figure out what’s really going on, what the missing pieces are, find the solution and implement it.

    When you encounter a technology issue, your first reaction is “Hmm that’s interesting, I wonder if other people have run into the same problem - how can we learn from their solutions?”. Even if you do not know the answer, you will look for resources on the web.

    You do NOT thrive on being micromanaged and love to be given the freedom to excel in your job. Being your own boss within an organization is a dream come true for you.

    You are open, direct, and straightforward. You believe that honesty, awareness, and ownership are the direct routes to problem solving. You’d rather not play the “blame game,” but instead just correct the issue and keep moving!

    You are a solution-based thinker who investigates why things went wrong with the goal of improving the process. You believe that a process problem lies at the root of every apparent people problem.

    You like writing and you wish you could go back to the days of having pen-pals and journaling for fun. You can infuse your personality into any piece of writing, especially when it comes to writing emails.

    Writing a persuasive email sounds like a fun activity, because it allows you to connect with another incredible human being. When reviewing other people’s writing, you can spot ways to improve an article or add your own stroke of genius to make the piece even more powerful.

    It is pretty impossible to faze you and you’re able to take a hit and keep rolling — your goal is to get it done, even if the path that gets there isn’t quite the one that you anticipated!

    You love inspirational quotes, and you see the good in everyone. You’re a very positive and upbeat person!

    About This Role
    You will be the overall project manager at Nathalie Lussier Media Inc. What does this mean?

    That you’ll be grand central station for all of our projects. You’ll break down our goals into deliverables, hand them off to the right people, then make sure everything is on track and getting done on time.

    You’re the go-to person for questions, resources, or whatever our team needs to get the job done. You are excellent at translating big ideas into projects, from figuring out the master plan to figuring out exactly which details need to be executed when.

    You’ll also be our “virtual office manager,” doing HR types of tasks like managing employee credit cards, paying vendors and affiliates, and interfacing with our bookkeeper to keep tabs on finances. Basically, you are the one who keeps our virtual office humming every day. You keep our team happy and our projects on time.

    We are a virtual office — that means everyone (including you!) works from your own home office. We’ll meet with you in person at our home office one day per week or bi-weekly, to ensure we’re all on the same page, but the rest of the time you’ll be working from home.

    This means you get all the best parts of interacting with a super fun team, with none of the commute and cubicles! Although your day to day will involve working closely with our small team, you need to be the kind of person that enjoys working from home and managing their own time.
    Some of your tasks will include:

    • working closely with Nathalie and Robin to translate big ideas into projects, deliverables, and timelines
    • working with everyone on our team to determine their top 3 monthly goals, then tracking progress/success on those goals
    • tracking communication with key contacts (affiliates, contractors, team) and making sure they have the appropriate resources
    • writing emails to our customers, affiliates, and potential partners, and doing research for untapped business development opportunities
    • investigating tech tools/platforms and weighing the pros and cons before making a recommendation to the team
    • monitoring our task management system actively look for roadblocks and making sure everything is progressing
    • overseeing all of our sites and working with our team to make sure they’re up to date
    • overseeing course content creation — working with our team to break down the course, put together the materials, & make it live and functional for customers
    • facilitating weekly team meetings and capturing team knowledge in our internal systems, so everyone knows where everything is at all times
    • managing our content and editorial calendar to make sure great new blog posts are being released regularly

    This is a 40/hr week contract position that will convert to full-time salaried work. You’ll be working independently from your own home, and coming into our home office in Denton / North Dallas, Texas one day per week.

    About Our Company

    Nathalie Lussier Media Inc. is a fast growing digital strategy and software company. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service, combining digital strategy and real-world empathy, and setting bold business goals to reach each quarter.

    We run a successful business education website for women entrepreneurs, which has a loyal following for our weekly newsletter as well as a close-knit membership community.

    Kin: UI Engineer

    (Chicago or anywhere) Kin is seeking a front-end engineer to join our small, distributed team. The position begins immediately and you're welcome to work remotely so long as you're in the US and eligible to work here.  

    As a UI Engineer, you're responsible for the entire technical lifecycle of Kin's UI. That means working with our designer up front on interactions and best practices, then working closely with our back-end engineers to get your work wired into the application.
     
    About Kin
    Kin is an employee management tool for small companies. It manages employee data and files, time-off and team calendars, and new hire onboarding for more than 100 companies worldwide. We launched in July of 2013, are completely bootstrapped, and we're passionate about supporting small, innovative companies as they grow, learn, and thrive. 

    Why work at Kin?
     
    We're a small, scrappy team. We're constantly building, releasing, and improving the app, so you'll see your work ship regularly. Though your primary role will be development, you will have influence on the direction of the product and have plenty of transparency into how we run our business.  

    Who we’re looking for

    • You are a front-end native - You speak clean, semantic, standards-compliant front-end code fluently. You have experience with dynamic CSS preprocessors such as SASS and LESS, and responsive UI isn't a mountain you walk around.    
    • You are absolutely solid with our technology set - Kin is built on Backbone,js, and you'll be spending at least 50% of your time working directly in it. We use Handlebars for templating and Rivets for data binding. Our backend is built on C#/.NET. Though you don't need to be fluent in C#, some experience with it is certainly a plus as is experience with Wordpress.
    • You don't want that job at Google - To succeed at Kin, you have to be interested in the product, interaction design, sales, and every other facet of the company. You like to work in a fast-paced environment where your work _truly_ matters. If you're looking for detailed specs and crisp corners, or are looking to be a cog in a big engine, this isn't the gig for you.
    • You can succeed with a remote team - Our team isn't huddled in a single location, so you need to be present, aware, and responsive with our distributed team even if you work out of our Chicago office.  We use tools like Github, Basecamp, HipChat, Google Hangouts, and DoneDone to keep both code and team synced. Constant communication and teamwork make the company tick.

    Job Perks: In addition to a competitive base salary, we offer: an employee equity plan, employer-matched retirement plan, BCBS PPO medical/vision/dental, up to 25 days paid vacation, paid transportation or parking (for Chicago team members), and a flexible remote work policy.

    Mule: Web Developer

    (San Francisco, CA) Mule Design Studio is looking for a web developer who understands that coding is a part of the design process, not the thing that happens after the design is done, and that the quality of the code should be as high as it can.

    You must have experience in client services, a collaborative nature, and a strong desire to solve problems for people. You will interact with clients on a regular basis, both as a coder and an advisor.

    We specialize in interactive design projects that have the potential to make a positive difference in the lives of real people. We believe in clear communication and orderly process, and in solving real-world problems through design and communication.

    This is a full-time job starting as soon as we find the right person. It is based in San Francisco.

    Your Qualities

    • Solid understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, from the old versions to the most recent recommendations
    • A cautious curiosity for newer web technologies and libraries: Sass, Coffeescript, Foundation, Javascript task runners, etc.
    • Familiarity with what it takes to integrate flat code into a CMS
    • Some idea of how to build out a CMS
    • A sense of when to push the envelope and when to use something that might be older, but works reliably
    • An understanding of all phases of the design process: research, strategy, information architecture, visual design, front end development
    • Ability to communicate clearly and concisely with clients during all phases of the project and into support
    • Know how to manage your time while working on multiple projects in different phases
    • Willingness to take a stand and convince others that you are right—both coworkers and clients
    What We Offer
    Of course you will get salary, benefits, and vacation days, but there are a few things that set us apart.
    • We work reasonable hours. A big part of your job is helping us meet our deadlines and get out of the office by 6 pm. No medals are issued for heroic all-nighters.
    • We choose our clients carefully. You’ll help solve interesting problems for good people doing worthwhile things.
    • Your co-workers will be outstanding. The people here are really terrific. We’re continually learning from each other.
    • We’re big enough to make a difference, and small enough for you to do the same. If you have ambition and a strong point of view (with the skills to back it up) you’ll have a good time at Mule.
    Include links to any relevant information or work samples. No attachments please.

    About Mule

Because what you really do, what you live for, is solving problems. Your portfolio isn’t a series of beautiful but generic templates - it’s a collection of stories that you can discuss with enthusiasm, and regret ... because you’re always getting better at what you do and you’re never satisfied with ‘good enough.’.

    • Visual Design: Photoshop, Fireworks, Keynote, MS Paint - whatever works for you. Your process is your own; you get to decide which tools you use.
    • HTML/CSS: You’ll be given full ownership of your ideas, and so you’ll be required to both create beautiful mockups/wireframes/prototypes - and implement them.
      Required Experience
    • You have a minimum of 2 years UX design experience 
    • You’ve Mastered front-end technologies: HTML and CSS 
    • You’ve got experience or are enthusiastic to work in a large e-commerce environment

    (South Jordan, UT) Lendio, a start up based in South Jordan, is looking for a designer to join its growing product team. We care deeply about our customers and their experience using our products, and we want to bring on someone who can match that same level of empathy and interest, combined with raw face-melting design talent.

    Lendio’s goal is to make small business lending easy and simple, bridging the gap between businesses that need capital, and organizations who are looking to lend. Lendio is in a space in some serious need of new tools and processes, and – if you’ll excuse the overuse of the term – is ripe for disruption. Seriously – we’re talking tons of opportunity here.

    The Sr. Product Designer will be part of a growing Product team, working directly with other designers, product managers, and developers. They’ll be deeply involved with the research, creation, validation, and management of our digital products.

    Does this describe you?

    • You care about, empathize with, and are interested in people. They’re the ones we’re doing this all for anyway.
    • You have an online portfolio that showcases your ridiculously awesome visual and interaction design skills.
    • You want to design and build products that people actually use, not stuff that sits in a folder or lives on Dribbble.
    • You have an insane attention to detail, not only with pixels, but with processes.
    • You love doing contextual inquiry and other types of design research, and you naturally soak up information around you (people watching isn’t creepy when it’s for research).
    • You have experience not just creating pretty high fidelity mockups, but in understanding the moving parts and processes behind plementing them.
    • You know how to work with agile development teams and aren’t afraid to speak their language.
    • You care about the design of non-digital products; door handles, kitchen utensils, vehicle interfaces, remote controls, etc.
    • You have real world experience, regardless of schooling. You can tell us stories of crazy hard problems that you solved with crazy good design.
    • You actively have conversations with the people who are using your products to see what can be changed or improved.
    • You have an opinion, but you love collaborating with others to make awesome things. Hooray teamwork!
    • You are proficient with all the right tools (obviously).
    • You really care about making the people around you better.
    • You are seen and respected as someone that knows a lot about your craft, and you’re continually taking steps to improve your skills.
    • You want to grow with a small organization and take over an industry.
    The nitty gritty stuff
    • 5+ years experience in user-centered design, focusing on both desktop and mobile applications (and everything in between).
    • Demonstrable experience in conducting research and validation; including contextual inquiry, interviews, surveys, usability testing, and quality assurance.
    • Practical experience in creating personas, user flows, IA documents, wireframes, high fidelity mock ups, and clickable prototypes.
    • A serious and earnest desire to solve problems.
    What we bring to the table
    • Very competitive compensation package (base salary + performance bonuses + stock options).
    • Full benefits: health, dental, vision, and life.
    • Endless PTO – we don’t track days off. Need a day? Take a day.
    • The best hardware and software for your workstation.
    • 401k via John Hancock.
    • A fun culture with good, crazy smart, hard-working people.
    • Autonomy: you’re CEO of your job.
    • A company that cares about continually improving things (this list will get better).
    Interested in hearing more about the opportunity? We’d love to talk to you about it. Send an email to adam.tolman@lendio.com and we’ll get right back to you.

    Job Perks: Very competitive compensation package (base salary + performance bonuses + stock options). Health, dental, vision, and life insurance plans. Endless PTO – we don’t track days off. The best hardware and software for your workstation. 401k. A fun culture with good, crazy-smart, hard-working people. Autonomy: you’re CEO of your job.
