Come work with me! Lime Brokerage is looking to hire a full-time Web
designer. You'll likely own the corporate Web site and work with me
on the design aspects of new online products. Lime Brokerage is
growing rapidly and expects to roll out new online products this year
and for many years to come.

The official job description is below. Please send all responses to
awexelblat at limebrokerage.com and include a resume+link to online
portfolio.

What I'm looking for is someone with a better eye for visual design
than I have. My own expertise is in the usability arena, and not so
much in graphics. You'll also be working with the Web teams so a
solid grounding in DHTML/CSS is a must. Experience with
Javascript/AJAX and other technologies underlying rich Internet
applications is also highly desirable. We're targeting a person with
2-5 years' experience for this, but if you have good things to show
we'll look at portfolios from people outside that range.

Relocation is not offered at this time. Salary is competitive, as are benefits.
