Our customers use Zoomforth to design some of their most important client, candidate, and employee communications, including: digital proposals, product microsites, onboarding portals, and recruiting landing pages. We are looking for someone with an exceptional feel for content and UX. Typically, we start with a contract position, but there's certainly opportunity for a full time role.

You'll join a profitable growth-stage startup and work from anywhere, while learning with and from an amazing team. You’ll be involved in the end to end design process, from ideation to publication, and support some of the most respected startups, agencies, and businesses in the world.

Zoomforth is web design software. So we need to constantly demonstrate best practices, build new templates, and show our customers how they can use our software to create beautiful digital experiences.

Moreover, we often support our customers when they need help, either because they don't have designers on staff, or because they're looking for our expertise on a high-priority or high-visibility project. Much like Squarespace Specialists or Certified Wordpress Developers, at Zoomforth we need our own group of expert designers who can support our customers' needs (as well as our own internal needs, from time to time) and make our product shine.

This role would involve working with the Customer Success, Design, and Product teams.

Responsibilities

Take wireframes and mocks designed by our Client Designers and build out those sites using the Zoomforth platform
Write well-organized CSS that works across browsers and devices
QA sites and code to ensure functionality and usability across use-cases
Build templates that our customers can use to create sites
Troubleshoot issues with customer sites and code
Create custom interactive experiences in the form of HTML packages

Skills & Experience Required

Stellar HTML/CSS skills
Knowledge of web usability: Accessibility standards, optimizing layouts and call-to-actions, legibility, information hierarchy.
A portfolio you can share that exhibits real work examples of style guides, UI design, landing pages, and/or brand work.
Strong team and client relationship skills: you'll be working with communicative and engaged colleagues.

Screening & Interview Process

1) Portfolio review
We will review your portfolio as a first step.

2) Intro phone call (15-20 min)
We will then do a ~ 20 minute phone screen to get the basics. We want to know what you're looking for in your work, and some high level info about your skill set and previous experiences. We also want to share more about who we are and why we're looking for this role. The goal is to ensure that we're on the same page and that we meet the basic needs of the other party. We're pretty committed to transparency, so if something doesn't align, we'll be upfront with you.

3) Paid Design Exercise (3-4 hours)
We introduce an exercise to better understand how you think about and might solve for some of the challenges that we typically confront in our work. This is a practical exercise that will allow you to showcase your skills. It will also help us understand how you work and where you might need the most support to get up to speed with our software.

4) Exercise review and offer
After you've completed the work, we'll do a 30 minute review, and give you the chance to ask questions, provide feedback, and reflect the experience. We'll then determine if it's worth continuing the relationship, along with the terms.

Zoomforth helps customers gather content and easily design beautiful websites. Our software makes the complex simple, and the boring beautiful. It's like Squarespace, but for professional communications.

Join a profitable growth-stage startup and work from anywhere, while learning with and from an amazing team. You’ll work alongside our CEO and support some of the most respected startups, agencies, and businesses in the world.
