Overview: This is a test job with simple, straightforward objectives; to determine if you have the skill set for a larger and more challenging set of objectives.
1) Develop login page employing graphic background and layout (files to be provided).
Design optimizes linear perspective and visual tracking cues to instinctively draw end- user's attention to the correct fields.
2) Design a technical and futuristic appearing icon, from a clip art icon (to be provided).
Design renders an icon which is technical/futuristic, yet readily identified. Reaches the right combination of color, edge enhancement, contour resolution and shaded surface display.
3) Must execute standard consultant NDA (to be provided).
4) Key skills:
You must be a good communicator. You must be fluent in English. You must be available for phone calls. (Our whole team is extremely busy. We are not interested in wasting your time or ours. We are interested in completing the job to proper specifications and on time).
This job demands that you have the experience and you are enough of a student of your craft to know how to eclectically combine the best design and development tools -- for the most functional, interoperable, fluid and responsive web page development. That may include: RDBMS, markup/stylesheet languages (e.g. HTML5/CSS3), programming languages (e.g. C#, Java, Python), IDE's, dynamic web content technologies (e. g. ASP. NET and PHP), utilities and niche tools. We are not locking you in to one format.
Understanding the principles of process mapping, events based, asynchronous multicasting, ORM, OOP and OOD will be quite applicable as the milestones progress, beyond this small, immediate task.
5) Why should you want this job?
You will be rewarded for being more than a "gear-head". You will be rewarded for bringing technical skills and creativity to bear. Our company policy promotes this combination. We believe the best scientists are frustrated artists and vice versa. Keep in mind, science begins in the ethos -- with ideas. For example, striking the right combination of functionality and visual intrigue in a login or landing page, can be quite a challenge. It can easily appear too spartan or too distracting. Similarly, a young child's face is simply beautiful. -- But draw it too simple and it will appear featureless. Stretch too far to add features and you've lost the beauty.
The job promises to be challenging and fun.
You get to work with our Chief Engineer, who is a great guy; with an abundance of experience (from working on some of the most technically challenging work our nation offers).
