"Do you want to sell sugar for the rest of your life or do you want
to change the world?" Steve Jobs
We're creating world class software that has the potential to
radically change the way people look at software creation.
But before we do that, we need some help. Our little company is
almost a complete picture - we're developers, project managers and
marketing professionals. The only thing we're currently missing is
someone with a complete and deep background in user experience - a
Our software is only as good as the experience it provides and we
need help insuring we hit the mark with our users and customers.
Here's what we need:
Someone who is comfortable with change. We're a start up software
company with a dynamic environment. The only constant is that things
change (and change often). You need to be comfortable with that.
Someone who can say NO. We've got user experience needs EVERYWHERE.
You have to help us prioritize and stick to your guns, no matter
what we say. We're looking to you to set the UX tone. You have to be
confident in your decisions and help guide us.
>From a practical point of view, you gotta be super comfortable with:
. Conducting and/or reviewing user research and translating any
findings into tangible designs
. Illustrating user flows through the experience (this is the forest
for the trees), which provides a map of the experience
. Creating working prototypes that communicate the total (or
parts) of the experience - the form of these prototypes (lo fidelity
wireframes, hi fidelity comps, html, flash, paper) is up to you...we
just need you to communicate the intention of your design
recommendations in ways other than written use cases.
. Hiring and mentoring more jr. team members as well as building a
team and a process.
That's it. We could list a bunch of software in which you should
have expertise. But we don't care. Why? We'll take it for granted
that as a UX professional, you're familiar with stuff like Photoshop
and Illustrator and Visio or Omnigraffle. Because we're not focused
on the methods, just the end result. We need a kick ass user
experience. We need you to help us create it. And we need you to
help us communicate it in interesting ways to our developers, so
they can grasp your intentions and build them.
It'll will be fun, we promise. We are opinionated. We'll challenge
you. We know just enough about user experience to be dangerous. But
we're not too proud to ask for help.
Our unique company culture promotes individual contribution,
innovation, excellence, and the belief that work should also be fun.
We offer competitive compensation, flexible working hours, a casual
office environment, and respect for individual contribution and
autonomy. We're looking for people who have interests outside of
work as well (please mention some of these in your cover letter if
