REFERRAL BONUS OFFERED---I would appreciate it if you'd forward this thru
your trusted networks, thanks! --- Joanne

Fulltime/freelance OK --- Local/remote OK too

Prefer onsite in LA but they are open + flexible for the right candidate.

The Company:

This is for a v. v. cool 35-person boutique branding/ideation/digital design
agency based in downtown LA whose bread + butter lies in ideating and
realizing entrepreneurs' visions about new online products, mostly in the
green/sustainability space. Their motto is "Doing Good." They want people
who want to Do Good in terms of design and bettering their community +
environment thru design + technology + whatever other means necessary.

Work incorporates interactive/digital, mobile, broadband, anything you can
dream up ;)

-----

Open roles:

JR/MIDLEVEL IA, freelance or fulltime

UX LEAD, freelance or fulltime

UX DIRECTOR, fulltime

(also looking for a fulltime midlevel INTERACTIVE PROJECT MANAGER if you
know anyone to recommend-referral bonus offered)

All folks should have experience doing large website builds, and if they've
got experience w/ applications, mobile, broadband, etc., all the better.

Design agency experience preferred

-----

Continuing education + employees' personal interests are important to them;
all fulltime employees get one free course at the Design Center per semester
(pottery, photography, etc)

Cultural fit is very important---you'll shine in this place if you're highly
collaborative, excited about the ideation/brainstorming process, eager to
contribute their ideas and points of view and recommendations, are OK
interfacing with clients regularly (it's a very transparent, casual
client-agency relationship there), and be thoughtful + passionate about good
design.
