Company confidential: Web/App Designer
Company confidential, eh? Don't worry, the company matters less than the team we're building. While the company behind our (currently) primary app is located in Rhode Island with actual employees, we -- the product dev team -- are made up of independents who have been bonded together since 2006 by a dedication to making great things. (This is among several ads posted here, so you may have read this brilliant paragraph before.)
That primary app I mentioned? Its web UI clearly reflects the design school practiced by the likes of Ryan Singer and 37signals, but it's never been about emulation. In our pursuit of simplicity, elegance, and usefulness, we've sometimes crafted the UI equivalent of a cover band. We can do better, but we need help.
This is a web app that needs to be beautifully functional on all modern browsers (both desktop and mobile). It'll be joined by some companion mobile and tablet apps that, like the web app, are purpose-built for their respective environments.
Instead of numbing your brain by listing the "required" and "nice-to-have" technical and design skills and experience, what's most important to us is that you have both the skill and the will to be a part of a team that's committed to making truly usable, effective products.
What do we need to do? We need to take a fresh look at what we're trying to achieve with our app(s). Everything's fair game -- whatever it takes. We have what is often an unwilling, unskilled population of users who would rather be doing something else than using an app of any kind. Our objective is to make it easy for them to do the right thing -- to give them what they need to know, when they need to know it, so that they can make the best decisions while taking the best actions.
Next, it's up to you to take action by contacting us. Share boring-but-important things like your availability and billing rate, but also share how you like to work, what you've worked on, and with whom (or at least in what sorts of team environments).
Arguing for and about things that matter with people who listen.
