Information and Interaction Designers
Leverage Your Interface Design Expertise to Innovate Online Experiences

If you are a consumer savvy Information or Interaction Designer with 2-4
years experience, and you are adept at crafting engaging customer
experiences though innovative online interactions, this is your
opportunity to join Fluid, an interactive design agency leader. We have
transformed and revolutionized the online shopping experience for
customers of some of the world's most recognized retailers, including
Reebok, The North Face, Calvin Klein Fragrances, Sears, Timberland, and
JanSport. What makes this role appealing is what makes Fluid unique:
we're not doing just standard shopping sites, we're crafting unique and
engaging customer experiences to accompany online shopping activities.
We help our clients define the standards for interactive content and
merchandising on web sites, kiosks, computer desktops, mobile devices,
and social networks. You will thrive in this role where you not only
create inviting and immersive experiences for millions of online
consumers, but you will also work with and have opportunities to lead
interdisciplinary teams and clients to define and execute the creative
vision. Move beyond traditional web sites and design fresh, new
multimedia content across all of these emerging channels.

Founded in 1990, Fluid Inc. ( is both a highly
respected design agency and a web application software company. Fluid
also develops and sells the Fluid RetailTM suite of online interactive
merchandising applications that simplify, automate, and optimize online
product presentation as well as provide tools to enhance the shopping
experience with gadgets, chat, intelligent product recommendations, and
interactive imagery. Fluid is a thought and design leader in the
development of single-page architecture and rich internet applications.

As one of five Information and Interaction Designers in our growing and
highly collaborative Creative Group based in our San Francisco, CA
headquarters, you'll contribute your personal innovative interaction
design skills on exciting projects for internationally renowned consumer
brand eCommerce sites. Your portfolio should showcase how you have taken
traditional sites and evolved them into something that is rich,
interactive, and compelling, and you should be able to talk to us about
how you defined design goals for your projects, communicated that vision
to the team and the client, and worked to bring those goals to fruition.
Your designs do not display the same traditional design patterns time
and again, but show how you adapt and create patterns to meet the
client’s brand and business needs. The ability to design intuitive
navigation systems, develop stable and scalable content structures and
taxonomies, and your solid knowledge of best practices for interface
design will enable you to hit the ground running and start immediately
on high-profile projects. You understand and know how to design for both
single-page architectures and traditional page-based models, and you are
conversant with the common interaction design pattern libraries for UI,
AJAX, and Flash. Your elegant and usable design solutions need to
accommodate both business goals and customer needs, and you'll be
expected to find the best compromises to balance customer expectations,
design best practices, and business needs.

Fluid can promise you an outlet for your creativity, a dynamic and
interesting work environment that will challenge you to grow and
improve, and colleagues who laugh easily and know how to have fun. We
love what we do, and we’re looking for designers who are as passionate
as we are.
