Description: 

RealPractice is looking for a full-time, entry-level or junior Interaction Designer. You will work on web-based applications that help solo and small-firm attorneys run their businesses. Even though the company has been around for several years and has some legacy products, this is really a re-startup company, and an opportunity to join a help shape brand-new products that are just being released in beta. As an entry-level/junior position, we're looking more for the right attitude and a willingness to learn than specific experience and skills, but these are some of the things you'll do:

  • Empathize with people and advocate on their behalf
  • Work with personas
  • Write scenarios and storyboards
  • Draw boxes and arrows
  • Organize information
  • Design work flows, behaviors, and interactions
  • Communicate design in writing and in person
  • Work well with engineers

 

Helpful, Not Necessary

  • Graphic design ability/experience. If you can create production-ready graphical elements for the web (layout elements, widgets) that's great, but will not get you this job
  • Understanding of web technologies (HTML, CSS, Javascript). You don't have to write shipping code, but do have to understand what can and can't be done.
  • Prototyping ability/experience. If you can actually build out your concepts with prototypes, that's great, but again it will not get you this job.

 

About Working at RealPractice

  • RealPractice is a small group of people and a good place to work
  • Our office is in Orange County, CA near the 405 & 55). Local candidates only, please.

 

To Apply

Along with your resume, let us know why are you're interested in working as an interaction designer, what experience and skills you have that will be useful, even if they don't seem directly relevant. If you do have work samples, send them along.

Thanks,
