Web Designer Spiceworks
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Spiceworks, an Austin-based startup, is on the prowl for a web design superstar with HTML/CSS skills and a cutting-edge style. Are you someone who feels like a kid in a candy shop when you see snippets like ?strategic design,? ?progressive enhancement,? and ?multivariate testing?? Are you a design guru who can mock-up creative concepts in a flash and craft the code to turn them into realities? As a web designer at Spiceworks, you?ll do just that as you build digital promos for Spiceworks and the powerhouse tech brands who advertise in our revolutionary app.
Called the ?Facebook of IT,? Spiceworks is all the rage among more than 2.1 million IT pros across the globe who use our product to do their jobs and interact with each other to simplify ?everything IT.?

We?re transforming the way that today?s tech products are managed, marketed and sold. And, given that we?re growing by 2,000 new users every day, it?s no wonder that Forbes coined Spiceworks ?the future of media?!
We?re looking for a highly motivated web designer who can thrive in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment and work with an eclectic mix of personalities. You?re not someone content to just create 'pretty designs' and crank out HTML ? you want to own projects through end-to-end: from initial design to browser debugging. You?re also a quick study who?s willing to tackle new challenges and ask the right questions. Oh, and a bit of wit and sarcasm certainly won?t hurt!

Qualifications: What does it take to do this job?
Sure almost no one knows everything, but the more of these you?ve mastered ? or at least know enough about to be dangerous ? the more you?ll set yourself apart from the herd!
Solid design skills (and an online portfolio that showcases them)
Ability to hand-code valid, semantic markup (HTML and CSS)
Belief that 'WYSIWYG editor' is a dirty word
