We build web and mobile apps for clients, and are at a point where our need for UI and layout design has exceeded our internal capacity. We are looking to add a designer for part-time work, with the possibility to transition into a more full-time role if there is a good fit and mutual interest.
Our ideal candidate would meet the following criteria:
- Strong experience in web and mobile design. Understanding of responsive web design, and a good feel for modern techniques and layouts for both web and mobile apps.
- Excellent attention to detail.
- Ability to balance solving some problems independently with asking good questions. You don't need to have every answer, and are encouraged to make judgement calls when needed, but should also be also to ask for guidance and suggestions when needed.
- Team and communication skills. We work quickly, and can have multiple open projects at a time, and so we require strong communication and teamwork. We use many of the standard team platforms (Slack, Trello, etc...), and are open to others if need be.
Optional, but encouraged:
- Quick turnarounds. We make every effort to work reasonable hours, but on occasion there is the need to work late nights or weekends. This is not mandatory, of course, but preference will be given to people able to commit to quick turnarounds. Overtime work is handled with bonus pay commensurate to the conditions (i.e. the more urgent the rush, the higher the bonus).
- Desire to learn new things. Also not mandatory, but we would prefer a designer willing to immerse him/herself in new subjects. One of our initial project steps is learning about the industry of our client, and the specific problems that they are trying to solve, and so if you are willing&able to participate in this research, it can inform better design decisions.
If you meet the criteria above, and are interested in exploring this opportunity further, please respond to this post with your available start date and your approximate free hours per week. Thank you for your time.
