Job Description
As a design-driven technology company we feel design is paramount in everything we do. We're looking for team members who can conceptualize ideas and grow them from start-to-finish. We pride ourselves in embracing new concepts and pushing boundaries in all our products. Working with the team means you'll always be challenging the status quo. If you consider yourself someone who's hungry, curious, driven and always seeking innovation then you'll fit right in.

Need-to-haves
• A solid eye. This is the main thing we're looking for. Someone who "gets it". Some have it, some don't… A designer who understand modern design trends but is always looking to push past them.
• 3+ Years experience in design, preferably in fast-paced start-up environments.
• A thorough understanding of UX and user habits.
• Ability to set and meet deadlines as well as prioritize effectively when in crunch-mode.
• Ability to jump between different design disciplines at a moment's notice.
• An understanding of mobile and web products on a technical level.
• Good work ethic when working with team members, no prima-donnas please.
• Analytical mind; we're looking for someone who can scope ideas and consider things like functionality/feasibility of a project all the way through and own it. There's more to design than just pretty pixels.

Nice-to-haves
• An ability to handle stress in a professional and effective manner.
• The ability to discard ideas at a moment's notice for sake of time or unforeseen circumstances.
• Front-end coding ability.
