UX Visual/Interaction Designer Spredfast
Spredfast is a leader in the Social CRM space, building tools that help large brands slay their social media dragons day in, day out. As part of that mission, we're looking for a visual designer with an eye for elegant interaction design.
Here's what we are hoping we will find in you:
A portfolio full of beautiful interface work-embedded UI, web application, web design, mobile apps-show us what you got
The belief that design is as much about emotion and story-telling as it is about utility and ease-of-use
Real empathy and respect for your audience of end users
Self-motivation, good communication, comfort with both following direction and change.
We're a growing company with a dynamic environment. One of the only constants around here is that things change (and change often).
From a practical point of view, you have to be comfortable with:
Creating layouts, color palettes, user interface elements, icons, prototypes and project documentation
Illustrating user flows through the experience (tree level view), which collectively provide a map of the experience (forest for the trees view)
Generating prototypes (lo fidelity wireframes, hi fidelity comps, html, flash, paper) that communicate the total (or discrete parts) of the experience
Communicating the intention of your design recommendations in ways other than written use cases
Demonstrating expert proficiency in the tools of your trade.
We'll take it for granted that as a seasoned visual designer, you're familiar with stuff like Photoshop and Illustrator and Fireworks and Visio or Omnigraffle.
In an ideal world, your humble beginnings are rooted in art school or graphic design or architecture. Then somewhere along the line you discovered fields like interaction design or human computer interaction and thought, "hey, that's for me!"
It'll be fun, we promise. We are opinionated. We'll challenge you. We know just enough about visual design to be dangerous. But we're not too proud to ask for help.
Manage your social media through one interface - listen, engage, and measure
