Palantir Technologies: Visual Designer

(Multiple Locations) A world-changing company

Palantir is a place where designers spend their days working on problems that matter. In our short history, we've empowered scientists monitoring the environment, prevented the spread of disease, taken down human trafficking networks, helped homeowners avoid foreclosure, prevented fraud in Medicare, and helped governments save billions.

Sound exciting? We think so.

The Product Design team


We design the futuristic and visionary software from science fiction cinema — except ours is real, and is used to solve the world's most complex information problems. Our team's work has a profound impact across the company: we work on every feature and every interface that users touch — for desktop, mobile, and web. The design team is highly valued in the company for our vision, our ability to learn and adapt, and our creativity and inventiveness.

The visual designer


Enterprise software should be beautiful and compelling. We are helping to bring a new level of quality to people who have never had access to well-designed software at work: scientists, relief workers, civil servants, healthcare workers, and homicide detectives, just to name a few. Visual Designers have the space and the freedom to think deeply and holistically about the visual languages we use. We pay critical attention to typographic hierarchies, readability, space, color, tone, and balance.

A great Visual Designer knows that form informs function and usability — that the surface layer doesn't exist in a vacuum — and that means the partnership with the Product Designer is a two-way conversation. We believe it is often important to have an owner for each of these facets. Dedicated roles help us ensure that we can meet the high bar of quality we’ve set for ourselves. Visual Designers own the look and feel of our products; together with Product Designers, User Researchers, and Product Engineers, we refine and evolve the quality of all Palantir software.

What we value

  • Excellent communication skills. You have a proven ability to build great relationships, and convey and debate design rationale. You are the person that people can’t wait to collaborate with.
  • Empathy, not ego. We strive to understand our users and we fight to empower them.
  • A profound love of engineers. Palantir is an engineering company, and we get to work with some of the best in the world. Engineers realize our vision — and we realize theirs — and together we create software that our users love.
  • A highly iterative design process. We move fast, we listen, and we adapt. We rapidly incorporate feedback, and we relentlessly collaborate. You must be adept at giving and receiving critiques
  • A mastery of tools. We move with ease across software and fidelity, depending on the task at hand. Sketch.app, Hand-coding, Photoshop, Illustrator, or Keynote — and good old-fashioned pencil and paper.

Apply: Please provide your portfolio for review! =)

The design team is highly valued in the company for our vision, our ability to learn and adapt, and our creativity and inventiveness.

The product designer

We are generalists that span many design disciplines: user research, information architecture, prototyping, ideation, interaction design, and sometimes visual design. Our artifacts come in many different forms and fidelities. We draw a lot, and we write a lot. We prototype with paper and Sharpies, Javascript, After Effects, and Keynote. We visit our users, listen, investigate, learn, and ideate. We rigorously share and promote our ideas, and constantly incorporate feedback and critique. Sometimes we’re out in front, exploring brand-new problem spaces, figuring out what to build. And sometimes we’re deep in the details of micro-interactions, figuring out how to build it. We lead feature teams in design exercises ranging from day-long design studios to week-long design sprints. A great Product Designer knows that form informs function and usability — that the surface layer doesn't exist in a vacuum — and that means the partnership with the Visual Designer is a two-way conversation. We believe it is often important to have an owner for each of these facets. Dedicated roles help us ensure that we can meet the high bar of quality we’ve set for ourselves. Product Designers own the user experience of our products along with Visual Designers, User Researchers, and Product Engineers. Together, we refine and evolve the quality of all Palantir software.What we value

Creative Soapbox: Interactive Designer

(Eugene, OR / Boise, ID) About the Position
We are on the hunt for a passionate and highly-motivated individual to craft beautiful, but more importantly, enjoyable interactive experiences. The variety of the design problems you will solve matches the diversity of our clientele: big, burley applications to targeted micro-sites. Our team is small, so we need you to be self-motivated and dedicated. You need to be able to plough through the small stuff and take time to think through the important stuff. And know which is which.

Who We Are
Creative Soapbox is an interactive studio located in Boise, Idaho and Eugene, Oregon. We're HTML collared and green thumbed. We're paper boats and electronic cityscapes. Whatever the weather, whatever the media, our solutions are snapped and sewn to tell each project's unique story. As our name implies, our process is a method of listening, inspiring and projecting.

Skills & Attributes

User Interface Design
You know your way around the building blocks of UX: wireframes, site maps, user flows, user personas, mood boards. And you know how to create them.

Visual Design
You are rooted in classic design principles and daydream about the golden ratio and what you can do with it. You may be inspired by tactile things like maps or old wallpaper. You can translate your inspiration into icons, colors and ideas. You want to design interfaces beyond simple brochure sites. Your designs consider multiple devices and screen sizes. And of course, you use something pedantic to build your masterpieces, like Adobe Create Suite or better, Sketch.

Client Interaction
You enjoy working directly with clients. You are comfortable presenting your work and talking about the reasoning behind design decisions.

Front-End Development
We believe that knowing how a design will be sliced and molded into HTML/CSS makes you a better interactive designer. You are familiar with web standards and want to know more about HTML5 and CSS3. You can make simple things work with jQuery. You may not be fully comfortable with the command line, but you aren't scared of it.

Communication
Whether it be virtual, face-to-face, written or verbal, you can clearly communicate explanations and ideas in a professional manner. This may seem obvious, but it seeps into every aspect of the job: from brand guidelines to blog posts to email to commenting in a project management system. This doesn't mean dry, it just means thoughtful.

Bonus Points

  • Experience with HTML email platforms (CampaignMonitor, etc)
  • Experience with Git
  • Experience with mobile app development (iOS or Android)
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails
  • Knowledge of Backbone or other Javascript frameworks
Educational Requirements
Bachelor's degree in relevant field and 3+ years experience.

The Wirecutter: Creative Director

(United States) The Wirecutter family is all about helping people find the best gadgets, tools, and supplies. We do the heavy lifting of sorting through all the testing and reviews to filter out only great stuff.

Now we’re ready to take on one of our toughest challenges yet; finding the best creative director for our growing family.

Our ideal creative director is able to handle being a one-person creative team, comfortable working solo as well as managing the hiring and directing of freelancers and production staff. We want someone who loves to design and wants to be directly involved on all levels.

The creative director is the steward of our brand, heading complete redesigns of existing publications, crafting new identities, and working on long-term strategic goals. This requires an eye for detail alongside a vision for the bigger picture and the future needs of the company. We’re not designers, we need someone with the passion for building something from the ground up.

Day to day responsibilities will include:

  • UX and UI improvements, production of images, illustrations, and infographics, or the oversight of such elements as created by contractors or staff
  • Working with editorial and programmers to make articles as strong as possible
  • Maintaining a rolodex of freelance graphic artists and photographers and managing their time and work
  • Direction for the brand across social media and promotional outlets
  • Being a conduit between the edit and tech sides of the publications
More long term strategic thinking might include:
  • The hiring of a day-to-day production art team
  • Creating and implementing a strategy for video, including hiring necessary team members
  • Redesigning existing sites (the Wirecutter and the Sweethome) as well as overseeing the creation of new sites, hand in hand with the editorial and technical teams
  • Exploring custom advertising strategies and opportunities
The ideal candidate for the position will be well versed in standard graphic design tools (Photoshop and Illustrator) as well as being at least conversant in modern web design technology (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript). Coding experience is a plus but not strictly necessary. If you have experience with eCommerce or retail operations we’d love to know more about that.

This is not an entry-level position: At least 4 years of industry experience is expected, and so is a portfolio of work demonstrating competence and creativity in the areas described above.

Prospective creative directors should have strong communication skills, the ability to lead and manage a team, a strong sense of branding and identity, and excellent organizational capabilities. This is an opportunity to work with an established team of industry veterans, while being a major cog in a growing and expanding company.

Working Remotely
The Wirecutter is a 100% remote organization and as such the candidate should feel comfortable (and preferably have a good deal of experience) with this arrangement. You should feel comfortable conducting a majority of your correspondence with the team over the phone, team chat, IM and video calls.

This is a very important aspect of the position. You must be able to not only motivate yourself in an environment of limited person-to-person contact as well as engage with your team without physically being in the same state or country as they are.

Apply: To apply, send a cover letter, link to a portfolio of related work, and resume to jobs@thewirecutter.com with the subject line “Creative director”.

Sliced Bread Design: Senior UX Designer

(Bay Area) Wanted: Senior UX Designer

Sliced Bread Design is on the lookout for a Senior UX Designer, employee or contract. You’ll design for a variety of products and industries alongside a crew of seasoned, passionate colleagues (and three chickens). 

We are a boutique user experience design agency working on interesting, complex human/tech interaction problems. Our philosophy is user-centered to the core: we’re constantly talking to users and testing our designs. Since we’re a small shop, many of us take on multiple roles (user research, client work, and creative direction).  

Here’s what will make a good match: 
• Your portfolio shows examples of complex interaction design problems you’ve solved. We’re looking for detailed design work on rich applications (for example, searches, dashboards, or transactional flows).
• You’re smart and motivated. You get up to speed quickly, and you like thinking through tough design problems.
• You’re comfortable with all phases of the design process, from concept creation and quick sketches through detailed interactive wireframes and testing with users.
• You have solid prototyping skills in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
• You live in the greater Bay Area. Ideally, you live close enough to Mountain View, CA to join us in the office two days a week.
• You have worked in this field for a few years; this is not an entry-level design job.

If this describes you, we’re guessing you’ve got options. So what makes Sliced Bread special? We combine a single-minded passion for doing high-quality design work with a uniquely flexible working environment. Our world headquarters is a sunny, friendly home office where we all work on Tuesdays and Thursdays; the rest of the week, we collaborate remotely from wherever we like. Katrina Alcorn, designer and author of Maxed Out, sums us up well: "Everyone is just focused on doing great work, and doing it efficiently so they can enjoy their lives.” 

Sound like a good fit? Email jobs@slicedbreaddesign.com with a link to your portfolio, resume, your rate/salary requirements and availability.

Job Perks: We have a collaborative, friendly, flexible environment in Mountain View, CA. We all work in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays; the rest of the week, we collaborate remotely from wherever we like.

Nathalie Lussier Media Inc.: Project Manager for Ambitious Media Company

(Denton, TX / North Dallas, TX) In our opinion, there are two sides to being a stellar project manager — managing projects and managing people. 

We’re looking for someone who is absolutely INCREDIBLE at both!

No programming experience required.

About You
So let’s start by talking about you. You are outrageously organized — color-coding, folders, and systems are the stuff of dreams. Taking an idea and turning it into a timeline of clear deliverables actually sounds like a fun way to spend a day to you!

You are incredibly skilled at both micro and macro thinking — making sure the big picture is always moving forward by way of all the tiny details that need to get done.

You also love people — you’re a natural mentor and sounding board, and knowing that you helped someone else succeed gives you enormous satisfaction. You love coaching people to do their best, seeing people’s strengths and talents and drawing it out of them even more. You naturally pick up on subtle team dynamics and are able to proactively jump in to assuage a concern or just offer a few words of encouragement.

You are an incredible problem solver — you are strategic, clever, and quick on your feet. You’ll be the go-to person when we’re trying to figure out a sticky issue.

You are extremely resourceful and great at playing detective — you can unravel any problem and figure out what’s really going on, what the missing pieces are, find the solution and implement it.

When you encounter a technology issue, your first reaction is “Hmm that’s interesting, I wonder if other people have run into the same problem - how can we learn from their solutions?”. Even if you do not know the answer, you will look for resources on the web.

You do NOT thrive on being micromanaged and love to be given the freedom to excel in your job. Being your own boss within an organization is a dream come true for you.

You are open, direct, and straightforward. You believe that honesty, awareness, and ownership are the direct routes to problem solving. You’d rather not play the “blame game,” but instead just correct the issue and keep moving!

You are a solution-based thinker who investigates why things went wrong with the goal of improving the process. You believe that a process problem lies at the root of every apparent people problem.

You like writing and you wish you could go back to the days of having pen-pals and journaling for fun. You can infuse your personality into any piece of writing, especially when it comes to writing emails.

Writing a persuasive email sounds like a fun activity, because it allows you to connect with another incredible human being. When reviewing other people’s writing, you can spot ways to improve an article or add your own stroke of genius to make the piece even more powerful.

It is pretty impossible to faze you and you’re able to take a hit and keep rolling — your goal is to get it done, even if the path that gets there isn’t quite the one that you anticipated!

You love inspirational quotes, and you see the good in everyone. You’re a very positive and upbeat person!

About This Role
You will be the overall project manager at Nathalie Lussier Media Inc. What does this mean?

That you’ll be grand central station for all of our projects. You’ll break down our goals into deliverables, hand them off to the right people, then make sure everything is on track and getting done on time.

You’re the go-to person for questions, resources, or whatever our team needs to get the job done. You are excellent at translating big ideas into projects, from figuring out the master plan to figuring out exactly which details need to be executed when.

You’ll also be our “virtual office manager,” doing HR types of tasks like managing employee credit cards, paying vendors and affiliates, and interfacing with our bookkeeper to keep tabs on finances. Basically, you are the one who keeps our virtual office humming every day. You keep our team happy and our projects on time.

We are a virtual office — that means everyone (including you!) works from your own home office. We’ll meet with you in person at our home office one day per week or bi-weekly, to ensure we’re all on the same page, but the rest of the time you’ll be working from home.

This means you get all the best parts of interacting with a super fun team, with none of the commute and cubicles! Although your day to day will involve working closely with our small team, you need to be the kind of person that enjoys working from home and managing their own time.
Some of your tasks will include:

  • working closely with Nathalie and Robin to translate big ideas into projects, deliverables, and timelines
  • working with everyone on our team to determine their top 3 monthly goals, then tracking progress/success on those goals
  • tracking communication with key contacts (affiliates, contractors, team) and making sure they have the appropriate resources
  • writing emails to our customers, affiliates, and potential partners, and doing research for untapped business development opportunities
  • investigating tech tools/platforms and weighing the pros and cons before making a recommendation to the team
  • monitoring our task management system actively look for roadblocks and making sure everything is progressing
  • overseeing all of our sites and working with our team to make sure they’re up to date
  • overseeing course content creation — working with our team to break down the course, put together the materials, & make it live and functional for customers
  • facilitating weekly team meetings and capturing team knowledge in our internal systems, so everyone knows where everything is at all times
  • managing our content and editorial calendar to make sure great new blog posts are being released regularly

This is a 40/hr week contract position that will convert to full-time salaried work. You’ll be working independently from your own home, and coming into our home office in Denton / North Dallas, Texas one day per week.

About Our Company

Nathalie Lussier Media Inc. is a fast growing digital strategy and software company. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service, combining digital strategy and real-world empathy, and setting bold business goals to reach each quarter.

We run a successful business education website for women entrepreneurs, which has a loyal following for our weekly newsletter as well as a close-knit membership community.

We also have the software branch of our company at AmbitionAlly, which focuses on solving complex technological problems for small business owners. Our software delivers top-notch user-experience and excels in helping business owners create slick designs that match their brand and style, while building their businesses using the web.

Job Perks: Work from home 4 days per week - flexible work schedule Amazing home-cooked lunch served on the days we work together

Apply: Please include your CV/Resume, relevant experience and salary expectations along with why you think you'd be a good fit.

Kin: UI Engineer

(Chicago or anywhere) Kin is seeking a front-end engineer to join our small, distributed team. The position begins immediately and you're welcome to work remotely so long as you're in the US and eligible to work here.  

As a UI Engineer, you're responsible for the entire technical lifecycle of Kin's UI. That means working with our designer up front on interactions and best practices, then working closely with our back-end engineers to get your work wired into the application.
 
About Kin
Kin is an employee management tool for small companies. It manages employee data and files, time-off and team calendars, and new hire onboarding for more than 100 companies worldwide. We launched in July of 2013, are completely bootstrapped, and we're passionate about supporting small, innovative companies as they grow, learn, and thrive. 

Why work at Kin?
 
We're a small, scrappy team. We're constantly building, releasing, and improving the app, so you'll see your work ship regularly. Though your primary role will be development, you will have influence on the direction of the product and have plenty of transparency into how we run our business.  

Who we’re looking for

  • You are a front-end native - You speak clean, semantic, standards-compliant front-end code fluently. You have experience with dynamic CSS preprocessors such as SASS and LESS, and responsive UI isn't a mountain you walk around.    
  • You are absolutely solid with our technology set - Kin is built on Backbone,js, and you'll be spending at least 50% of your time working directly in it. We use Handlebars for templating and Rivets for data binding. Our backend is built on C#/.NET. Though you don't need to be fluent in C#, some experience with it is certainly a plus as is experience with Wordpress.
  • You don't want that job at Google - To succeed at Kin, you have to be interested in the product, interaction design, sales, and every other facet of the company. You like to work in a fast-paced environment where your work _truly_ matters. If you're looking for detailed specs and crisp corners, or are looking to be a cog in a big engine, this isn't the gig for you.
  • You can succeed with a remote team - Our team isn't huddled in a single location, so you need to be present, aware, and responsive with our distributed team even if you work out of our Chicago office.  We use tools like Github, Basecamp, HipChat, Google Hangouts, and DoneDone to keep both code and team synced. Constant communication and teamwork make the company tick.

Job Perks: In addition to a competitive base salary, we offer: an employee equity plan, employer-matched retirement plan, BCBS PPO medical/vision/dental, up to 25 days paid vacation, paid transportation or parking (for Chicago team members), and a flexible remote work policy.

We believe that culture matters more than anything else, but at the same time we want to make sure that your work speaks for itself.  We are interested in portfolios that show strong design and technology principles for web, vibrant creativity and significant thoughtfulness regarding brand positioning. We’d love to learn more about you and browse your portfolio or github.

Job Perks: Open vacation policy. Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision. Delicious meals at the office. Fitness stipend. Competitive salary and meaningful equity. Housing & commuting stipend.

We are a small shop and everyone who works here has to be at the top of their game.

The designer we're looking for has:

  • a powerful intellectual curiosity
  • a strong sense of craft
  • the ability to work collaboratively across disciplines (research, strategy, interaction design, code) and ideas about how to improve the intersections
  • a solid understanding of both design theory and practical tools

Mule: Web Developer

(San Francisco, CA) Mule Design Studio is looking for a web developer who understands that coding is a part of the design process, not the thing that happens after the design is done, and that the quality of the code should be as high as it can.

You must have experience in client services, a collaborative nature, and a strong desire to solve problems for people. You will interact with clients on a regular basis, both as a coder and an advisor.

  • Familiarity with what it takes to integrate flat code into a CMS
  • Some idea of how to build out a CMS
  • A sense of when to push the envelope and when to use something that might be older, but works reliably

  • Ability to communicate clearly and concisely with clients during all phases of the project and into support
  • Know how to manage your time while working on multiple projects in different phases
  • Willingness to take a stand and convince others that you are right—both coworkers and clients
What We Offer
Of course you will get salary, benefits, and vacation days, but there are a few things that set us apart.
  • We work reasonable hours. A big part of your job is helping us meet our deadlines and get out of the office by 6 pm. No medals are issued for heroic all-nighters.
  • We choose our clients carefully. You’ll help solve interesting problems for good people doing worthwhile things.
  • Your co-workers will be outstanding. The people here are really terrific. We’re continually learning from each other.
  • We’re big enough to make a difference, and small enough for you to do the same. If you have ambition and a strong point of view (with the skills to back it up) you’ll have a good time at Mule.
Include links to any relevant information or work samples. No attachments please.

You'll work with developers, product owners, copywriters and user researchers to conceive, analyse, hand code & test your ideas.

‘Designer’ is just what it says on your CV - you’d be just as happy to be labeled an Engineer, or Analyst; a Builder, Hacker or Maker. Because what you really do, what you live for, is solving problems.

You will be a passionate advocate for the user, dedicated to the craft of design and excited about working in an agile, collaborative environment.

  • Simplicity: Good design is invisible.
  • Collaboration: You’ll be working alongside developers and copywriters to create elegant user experiences; you should thrive on feedback, critique and iteration.
  • Visual Design: Photoshop, Fireworks, Keynote, MS Paint - whatever works for you. Your process is your own; you get to decide which tools you use.
  • HTML/CSS: You’ll be given full ownership of your ideas, and so you’ll be required to both create beautiful mockups/wireframes/prototypes - and implement them.
  Required Experience
  • You have a minimum of 2 years UX design experience 
  • You’ve Mastered front-end technologies: HTML and CSS 
  • You’ve got experience or are enthusiastic to work in a large e-commerce environment

This position is open to worldwide candidates and in the case of relocation we will assist you with a relocation package insuring a smooth transition to working and living in the Netherlands, where you’ll be joining a team of people from all over the world who now call Amsterdam home.

Lendio: Senior Product Designer

(South Jordan, UT) Lendio, a start up based in South Jordan, is looking for a designer to join its growing product team. We care deeply about our customers and their experience using our products, and we want to bring on someone who can match that same level of empathy and interest, combined with raw face-melting design talent.

Lendio’s goal is to make small business lending easy and simple, bridging the gap between businesses that need capital, and organizations who are looking to lend. Lendio is in a space in some serious need of new tools and processes, and – if you’ll excuse the overuse of the term – is ripe for disruption. Seriously – we’re talking tons of opportunity here.

The Sr. Product Designer will be part of a growing Product team, working directly with other designers, product managers, and developers. They’ll be deeply involved with the research, creation, validation, and management of our digital products.

Does this describe you?

  • You care about, empathize with, and are interested in people. They’re the ones we’re doing this all for anyway.
  • You have an online portfolio that showcases your ridiculously awesome visual and interaction design skills.
  • You want to design and build products that people actually use, not stuff that sits in a folder or lives on Dribbble.
  • You have an insane attention to detail, not only with pixels, but with processes.
  • You love doing contextual inquiry and other types of design research, and you naturally soak up information around you (people watching isn’t creepy when it’s for research).
  • You have experience not just creating pretty high fidelity mockups, but in understanding the moving parts and processes behind plementing them.
  • You know how to work with agile development teams and aren’t afraid to speak their language.
  • You care about the design of non-digital products; door handles, kitchen utensils, vehicle interfaces, remote controls, etc.
  • You have real world experience, regardless of schooling. You can tell us stories of crazy hard problems that you solved with crazy good design.
  • You actively have conversations with the people who are using your products to see what can be changed or improved.
  • You have an opinion, but you love collaborating with others to make awesome things. Hooray teamwork!
  • You are proficient with all the right tools (obviously).
  • You really care about making the people around you better.
  • You are seen and respected as someone that knows a lot about your craft, and you’re continually taking steps to improve your skills.
  • You want to grow with a small organization and take over an industry.
The nitty gritty stuff
  • 5+ years experience in user-centered design, focusing on both desktop and mobile applications (and everything in between).
  • Demonstrable experience in conducting research and validation; including contextual inquiry, interviews, surveys, usability testing, and quality assurance.
  • Practical experience in creating personas, user flows, IA documents, wireframes, high fidelity mock ups, and clickable prototypes.
  • A serious and earnest desire to solve problems.
What we bring to the table
  • Very competitive compensation package (base salary + performance bonuses + stock options).
  • Full benefits: health, dental, vision, and life.
  • Endless PTO – we don’t track days off. Need a day? Take a day.
  • The best hardware and software for your workstation.
  • 401k via John Hancock.
  • A fun culture with good, crazy smart, hard-working people.
  • Autonomy: you’re CEO of your job.
  • A company that cares about continually improving things (this list will get better).
Interested in hearing more about the opportunity? We’d love to talk to you about it. Send an email to adam.tolman@lendio.com and we’ll get right back to you.

Job Perks: Very competitive compensation package (base salary + performance bonuses + stock options). Health, dental, vision, and life insurance plans. Endless PTO – we don’t track days off.

Sharethrough: UI Designer

(San Francisco, CA) About Us:
We believe the future of advertising will be about thoughtfully integrating brand content on sites people love to go to, not slapping ads in an ugly box, banner or force-fed pre-roll. We’ve built a native advertising platform from the ground up to make that vision a reality.The Sharethrough team is comprised of an amazingly dedicated group of professionals with deep experience across advertising, technology, media and creative industries. Founded in the heart of Silicon Valley at Stanford University, Sharethrough now spans the country with offices in San Francisco, New York and Chicago. This role is based in our San Francisco office.

Our application is full of social, performance, and audience data. The UI will provide easy access to stats as well as infographic-like insights. We’re hiring you because you’re able to bring order to chaos, wrestle massive, semi-structured data sets into productive citizens, and dazzle even the toughest creative director with your razor sharp design sense. We need a lot of user-facing design for our content-focused marketing product as well as a lot of advertiser, brand, and publisher-facing design for a groundbreaking new platform we are building.   

About You:

  • You've spent a lot of timing executing visual designs for complex applications, conceptualizing and owning product style guides / pattern libraries
  • You've worked with large data before and know the do's and don'ts behind data visualizations and how a user should interact with them

  • You can both work with a UX designer and take on some roles of UX design - the two of you would be closely aligned and have some fluidity of roles
  • You've worked with engineering teams (we have a top-notch one!) to implement your designs
  • You have highly developed communication skills (an occasional presentation to engineering or sales won't intimidate you)
  • Seeing bad visual design makes you cringe, and you want to jump in and fix it as soon as possible

Mutual Mobile: Senior Android Engineer

(Austin, TX) Why work for Mutual Mobile? We make great products. We craft beautiful mobile interfaces and solve complex software challenges. Clients such as Google, lynda.com, Citi, and Xerox come to us for our deep experience in mobile — from establishing a mobile strategy that provides impactful business value, to building those solutions from the ground up. We bring together the brightest minds in interactive & visual design, engineering, and business management to deliver solutions that actually matter.

As a Senior Android Engineer at Mutual Mobile, you will be a technical lead and mentor. You will guide project teams by creating technical designs, writing user stories, and grooming the backlog. You will promote and champion best technical practices with both our clients and the development team. You will perform code reviews, triage bugs, and manage releases. You can even help to manage the customer relationship. And, you get to code.

Don’t have professional experience developing for Android? That’s okay. We welcome developers from different platform backgrounds. Perhaps you only have experience working with Android as a hobby or you have experience leading teams.  We’d still love to talk.

You will excel in this position if:

  • You have at least 5 years of professional development experience. 
  • You’re an active coder and you love to code.  
  • You have an eye for User Interface and Visual Design
  • You can code deliverables such as back-end (like GPS, REST, or DB services) and front-end (like pixel-perfect UIs, animations, and transitions).
  • You’re a kind, pragmatic communicator with a working knowledge of an Agile and Scrum environment.
It would be awesome if:
  • You clearly understand Test Driven Development and can identify when code needs to be wrapped with unit, integration, and system tests.
  • You have many years of experience with writing Java 
  • You closely follow emerging technology in the mobile industry
  • You clearly understand the SOLID principles, dependency injection, mocking, and domain modeling techniques.
  • You have the ability to architect an entire software system and you can clearly communicate the architecture to both the team and to the customer.  
  • You have experience working with cross-functional teams across several countries, as you’ll need to work with everyone--clients, PMs, UX/UI designers, QA, server devs, and mobile web devs.
  • You understand OpenGL.
You’ll love working here, because this isn’t a company of silos. Team members are empowered and encouraged to pursue cool ideas, think for themselves, and make mistakes. We won’t subject you to our current systems and processes - we would love it if instead you would help to improve them. We know you’re smart, and that you love learning new technologies--so you’ll be able to work on a variety of Android projects with many different types of people.

Mutual Mobile: Senior iOS Engineer

(Austin, TX) Mutual Mobile is looking for people to join our iOS Engineering team in creating mobile applications for some of the best known brands in the world. You have an excellent track record pushing the boundaries of iOS. Continue to take your skills to the cutting edge while working alongside our amazing team of engineers and designers.

In your first year at Mutual Mobile, you will:

  • Be a lead engineer and mentor to your iOS team, building and advocating delightful user experiences on iOS.
  • Guide our project teams by creating technical designs, leading development on high priority development components, and championing best practices. 
  • Work on complex and forward thinking solutions every day. 
  • Contribute to open source projects, sharing your work not just with internal projects but to the wider iOS community. (We love and support the open source community.) 
  • Have a voice in your project's direction, and you'll work with talented in-house designers to bring stunning interfaces to life.
Here's what we found make our Senior iOS Engineers most successful here: 
  • 5 years of development experience, with at least 3 years of experience building applications on iOS.
  • In-depth experience working with Objective-C, Xcode, and Instruments.
  • A working knowledge of core iOS frameworks.

The person next to you did on their last project. Wondering about the differences between Kiwi and KIF? Invite someone to have a beer and talk about it in the break room.
  • We strongly believe in painting both sides of the fence as we build well crafted software. We want our code to be reusable and maintainable, just as we want our user interfaces to be beautiful and delightful. 
  • We’re committed to helping you stay on the cutting edge. iOS is a brand new field that is changing quickly. We’re excited about that and always on the lookout for new developments and ways we can improve.

Software Advice: Web Applications UX/UI Designer

(Austin, TX) Software Advice is a trusted resource for software buyers. Our website provides detailed reviews, comparisons and research to help organizations choose the right software. Meanwhile, our team of software advisors provide free telephone consultations to help each software buyer identify systems that best fit their needs. In the process, we connect software buyers and sellers, and get paid by software vendors for generating these high-quality opportunities. Since we started in 2005, we've advised more than 125,000 software buyers. 

We're looking for a UX/UI designer to take ownership of the proprietary web applications we use in-house every day. If you have a passion for cloud application design, user experience, beauty and consistency, keep reading. 


We're looking for someone who:

  • Is a goal-oriented designer. Design appreciation is subjective, but user experience can be quantified. You design for results.
  • Is fairly technical. Not only can you design in Adobe CS, but when called upon you can code in HTML, CSS and JavaScript to prototype or fix a pixel here or there.
  • Is pragmatic and goal oriented. Despite your artistic gifts, you are fascinated by user behavior and measures of effectiveness.
  • Is organized and deadline aware. We know we can't rush great things, but we've got some serious deadlines. Your organization and project management make it happen.
What you'll do all day:
  • Make people happy. Seriously, you'll be the new hero in town when you increase efficiency and ease of use for our internal site.
  • Cloud application design. You will design new applications (like the softphone we're currently working on) or redesign existing pages to respond to the needs of our employees.
  • Maintain consistency. As we grow our business we need to scale our existing system. You'll make sure the user experience is always consistent and delightful.
A few reasons why you might hate it:
  • You only do mobile apps. This is application design, but it ain't for the App Store. If cloud applications aren't your thing, this job probably isn't for you.
  • It's your way or the highway. You're not the only one with an opinion, and we have a fair bit of experience with what's worked or failed in the past.
  • You need to start from scratch. We'll give you autonomy, but we have a lot of highly effective work in place already. We're not about to rip it all out.
  • You're a mess. If you are disorganized and can't project manage your way out of a paper bag, you'll find it real tough to work in our company.
And a few reasons why you might love it:
  • You'll be on the cutting edge. We're always trying new things, such as the responsive designs we're working on right now. We're early adopters, just like you.
  • We'll get you whatever you need. We'll give you the tools you need to do your job, whether that's Macs, software, etc.
  • The work environment is amazing. Our SoCo office is insanely cool, open, and inviting. We dress casually and have fun while working hard.
  • The team is even more amazing. You will work with people who are as energetic, smart, and driven as you are. You'll be managed by the best too.
  • Your success will be recognized and appreciated. You'll be able to see your direct impact on our growth. You won't be just another cog in the wheel.
Please no contractors or design firms. We already have two excellent resources and we are intentionally seeking to hire a full-time, in-house UX professional.

Job Perks: Health, dental, vision & life insurance starting your first day 401(k) matching Four weeks paid vacation Nine paid holidays One month work abroad program Education reimbursement Fully stocked kitchen Dog friendly Massage Fridays Smoothie Tuesdays

This is a full-time position located at the Museum’s offices in Brooklyn.

Detroit Media Partnership / Gannett Co., Inc.: DevOps / Systems Admin

(Detroit, MI) Position: DevOps / Systems Admin Company: Detroit Media Partnership (serving The Detroit News, Detroit Free Press & Gannett Michigan) Unit: Innovation & Product Development   Description: Let’s start with some of the benefits:

  • The opportunity to reinvent the news business.
  • A chance to invigorate the rise of Detroit.
  • Tickets to Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons and Lions games.
  • Team craft beer celebrations of project milestones (Michigan has over 130 breweries, you know)
  • Ship projects that are meaningful and impact an audience that already numbers in the millions.
  • Support two newsrooms that have won a combined 13 Pulitzer Prizes, in the fifth-largest news market in the country by total audience.
The Detroit Media Partnership’s Innovation and Product Development unit (I&PD) is charged with creating new products, new lines of business, better tools to serve journalists and advertisers, and generally speaking, shaking things up in the information business. We’re looking for someone as excited about that as automation, uptime, and source control.   The I&PD team is supported by colleagues in consumer research, marketing, advertising sales and some top-notch journalists. We’ve got legacy products that are built on a LAMP stack, but our new Python developer is quickly making converts and new evangelists. We currently need an expert in the infrastructure that will support all our great ideas.   We’re looking for someone who’s fluent in a variety of build environments and scripting, and can create the right backend for each product concept. Our innovation pipeline is built on human-centered design, and we’re reimagining how news products can solve real problems for people. We think our systems should be designed to meet the needs of those products.   Performance, reliability, scalability and security are absolutely essential in our camp. Our flagship digital products serve millions of users (and sometimes we’re even high-profile targets for the less-than-scrupulous). We have just as high expectations for our new creations, so we’ll ask you to tell us about your favorite tools and suites for testing, measuring, monitoring, etc.   Very few news and publishing companies have an innovation and product development unit, so we think this is a pretty fetching opportunity. If you’ve got the chops and want to join a fired up team, we want to hear from you.  For the right person, this is not only an opportunity to build cool stuff, it’s a chance to lead and teach and disrupt. Our unit is also charged with culture change, the battle against “the way things have always been done.” So if you want to really make a mark in product design and digital publishing, as well as help transform an organization through an understanding of agile and lean principles, again, let’s talk.   Duties:
  • Work as part of a collaborative team of researchers, project managers, designers, developers, marketers and sales staff.
  • Build consumer-facing products that will become or be part of websites, web applications, native mobile apps and more.
  • Help build process and system for an organization that is defining itself (read: making it up as we go) by incorporating best practices from technology enterprises.
  • Interpret user insights and balance business needs in delivering products.
  • Participate in human-centered design research, including field interviews and user testing.
  Requirements:We don’t care where you went to school or how long you’ve been at it, if
  • You’ve got demonstrated experience engineering backend systems for large-scale commercial products
  • You’re not only solid on MySQL or NoSQL, but you can explain to non-techs in our organization the difference between relational and non-relational databases in a way they can understand
  • You solve TCP/IP, HTTP and DNS challenges in your sleep
  • You’ve mastered PHP, but you appreciate the elegance of Python
  • You’re no stranger to Apache, Nginx, Linux, tools like Puppet or Chef, AWS, and even more that you’ll introduce our team to
  • You can demonstrate proof of participation in the open source community, e.g. a solid Github portfolio
  • You add to a collaborative culture that’s all about seeking to understand, life-long learning and shipping awesome stuff
  • There’s demonstrable proof of ongoing skill-building, i.e. completion of online coursework to acquire new programming languages, side projects authored outside of work, etc. You’re eager to learn and use new technology
  • Proficiency with git or other version control systems
  • You have a passion for and understanding of journalism and the news business.

Its platforms include the award-winning AFAR magazine; AFAR.com, recently named a Top 10 site That Makes Travel Easier; the non profit foundation Learning AFAR; and the immersive travel series AFAR Experiences.

We use Rails and all the attendant technologies (slim, rspec, jQuery, CoffeeScript, drinking lots of coffee) and a splash of Ember.js, which is awesome. We work reasonable hours and we're paid well for our time. (No nebulous promises of worthless equity for infinite hours at the desk.) We
believe in travel so strongly that we pay you to do it. That is, each employee is eligible for a yearly travel stipend and three weeks vacation to use it.

EXPERIENCE
• 2-4 years of development experience using Rails, Javascript and CSS
• Experience working in an agile environment (we do near-daily releases and have an active storyboard)
• Experience working closely with a creative product team (you should have examples of suggesting/refining product ideas that eventually became part of the overall product)

QUALIFICATIONS
• Strong coding skills in Javascript, HTML/CSS, and Rails
• Experience working collaboratively as a team (we use GitHub, Pivotal Tracker, Engine Yard and Campfire to get stuff done)
• Great communication and interpersonal skills

AFAR Media is a well-funded travel media start-up located in downtown San Francisco. We have a $2,000 yearly travel expense reimbursement, big monitors, cool desks, and friendly coworkers (dogs allowed too).

The company is both a technology startup, working on building the next generation digital travel guide, and a media startup, recently launching an award-winning travel magazine (winning
America's Best Travel Magazine three of the four years since we launched).

Hudl: iOS Developer

(Nebraska, California, Texas, or New York. Read below for why.) What is Hudl?

Hudl is a software company that makes sports video analysis tools for coaches and athletes. Teams upload their game film to our web application, study it, and “break it down” by adding text notes, ink telestrations, and tagged metadata. Coaches then share the edited segments of video with groups of players on their team. Athletes can consume the annotated video on their iOS and Android devices throughout the week in preparation for their next game. If an athlete notices a great play, he or she can highlight it to appear on a public profile for fans, parents, and recruiters to see.


What are you looking for in an iOS Developer?

  • Experience. We want someone who has written and shipped at least one iOS app, and understands the dynamics of the development environment and ecosystem. We have a really talented group of iOS Developers on our team right now - we want a dev that can hit the ground running with them.
  • Appreciation for good UI and interaction. You're not afraid to push the limits of Cocoa Touch, and not by depending entirely on default controls. Basically, when someone asks you "Can this be done?," your reply is "We'll figure out a way."
  • Most of all: passion. About code, about this platform, about users. Our team loves building and shipping, whether it's in the office or on their own time. They can't stop reading and learning about the latest and greatest stuff. People here absolutely love what they do, and we expect the same from you.

What kind of stuff do would I be working on?

All kinds of stuff. We learned early on that mobile devices and tablets are great tools for consuming film, but that barely scrapes the surface of what they can do for coaches and players.

A team from just about any sport can record short clips of practices/heats/points/attempts on their device, and then immediately watch it for some quick feedback. They can add notes and telestrations within the app, then upload it to study it later.

Football teams can use an iPhone or an iPad to tag data for a live game. That data syncs with the game film online, giving coaches a headstart on analyzing their tendencies and weaknesses in certain game situations.

We won't put all of our cards on the table here, but we have some awesome things planned that we can do with the iOS hardware and software to help our coaches and players. We just need talented people to chip in.


Anything else I should know?
  • Culture is huge for us. Every company says this, but we live, hire, fire, and reward folks by it. Take a second to look at our company values: http://www.hudl.com/about/values
  • We're profitable. We've been selling subscriptions to our core product for the last 5 years, and teams keep coming back. We have the financial stability and freedom that most start-ups would die for.
  • We're fast. We want to be on the cutting edge and ahead of the competiton - that means we ship quickly. Check out of our Jobs page for some hard numbers around our development cycles.

Job Perks: - $1,900 stipend to build or buy your own computer. After 2 years, you get to do it all over again and keep the old one. - $1,500 annual stipend to attend a professional conference (WWDC, anyone?) - Unlimited vacation - Free lunch in our Lincoln, Neb. office

Hudl: Product Designer

(Nebraska, California, New York, or Texas. Read below for why.) What is Hudl?

Hudl is a software company that makes sports video analysis tools for coaches and athletes. Teams upload their game film to our site, study it, and "break it down" by adding text notes, ink telestrations, and tagged metadata.Coaches then share the edited segments of video with groups of players on their team. Athletes can consume the annotated video on their iOS and Android devices throughout the week in preparation for their next game. If an athlete notices a great play, he or she can highlight it to appear on a public profile for fans, parents, and recruiters to see. 

What do Product Designers do at Hudl?

We make the above process as headache-free as possible. We lead small, cross-functional teams in creating and shipping clear, delightful user experiences.

Here’s how we do it: 

First, designers perform user research with coaches of all sports to understand latent needs beyond just the basics of what they say they want. Designers learn "why" first-hand. There’s no requirements doc handed down from on high. Next, they rough out concepts to test with developers, QA, and their project manager. They sketch, they mock, and they prototype the key interactions. And often, they throw big pieces out when it doesn't click in a user study. Once the concepts do start clicking, Product Designers start crafting the interface first (HTML & CSS for web products, Interface Builder for iOS, etc.). They team up with a developer to improve the code and get it wired into the back-end systems. Finally, they ensure the visuals are consistent throughout and match our brand styles. But, designers don’t stop after the first release. They work closely with PM’s as we roll-out improvements so that we can refine it as the product gets real-world use. We can selectively enable new features to small groups of coaches and athletes to validate that we’re on the right track. Practically, all this means you carry the squad with beautiful visual design, thoughtful interaction design and production-ready HTML and CSS (Sass, actually). Those are the non-negotiable requirements. We also expect that you:

  • Excel in giving and receiving respectfully blunt feedback and critique.
  • Have strong beliefs, loosely held, about what’s best for the product.
  • Understand that technical, business, and design constraints factor into every product decision.
  • Know how and when to tactfully say, “No."
  • Are unafraid shipping small, quick experiments to validate your assumptions and opinions.
  • Think that great copywriting is an essential part of creating clear user interfaces.
  • Consciously choose the best medium and fidelity to convey your ideas at each stage of a project (not every project goes sketch, Photoshop, HTML).
  • Can tell the story of a product or service with sharp copy and crisp imagery—people get fired up after your presentations.

Tell me about the team I would work with.

The Coaching Tools tribe at Hudl is responsible for the first half of our company mission: “Help Coaches Win.” We are building tools that coaches can use to gain an edge on their opponents using a medley of video, annotations, and analytics. You’ll work within one of the six squads that comprise the tribe: Mobile, Core, Recruit, Football, Basketball, and Conversion. Two more squads are on the way in 2014. Each squad includes one designer, one or two developers, a quality assurance analyst, and a project/product manager.

Where will I work?

We're looking for people to work at HQ in Lincoln, Nebraska, or remotely from the states of California, Texas, and New York. We admit: it's a little weird that we're not open to more states, but we'd rather put our energy into building amazing software than shuffling through sales and franchise tax paperwork. For now.

Job Perks: - $1,900 stipend to build or buy your own computer (after 2 years, you get to do it all over again and keep the old one) - $1,500 annual stipend to attend a professional conference - Unlimited vacation - Free lunch in our Lincoln, Neb. office - 401k matching

Apply: Include a link to your portfolio - most of our evaluation will go towards that. Make sure it's up-to-date, hosted online, and includes descriptions of your role in each project.

This graph which we call a "trace", models the calls between the layers.  Within seconds of receiving a trace, our system extracts and stores high-dimensional application-specific data (keyed on e.g. time, host, HTTP method, URL, query, Redis command, etc) intended for ad hoc filtering and aggregation from our web app.  In the next minutes and hours, further trace data analysis and indexing are prepared for the user.  Most of the data processing and web backend are written in Python, with a tiny bit of C++ and Java.
Atop it all we present this data using a cool, clean interface that helps our customers to quickly identify performance problems.  Users really value the heatmap visualization, which depicts a latency distribution as it changes over time, with filtering & zooming controls to explore trends or isolate individual requests.  Our app's interface, logic, and templates are all written in JavaScript using D3.js and our homegrown reactive programming library, tbonejs.org.
Our development and release processes are focused on helping our customers perform better through automation and innovation.  We run automated tests on every commit and pull request, and our chat robot often pushes several releases in a day.  As web engineers building a product for web engineers, each of us possesses valuable insights that we use when improving it.  We are committed to helping every teammate grow and learn from working with our technology, our data, and our team.

Our company
AppNeta is a fast-growing company with a small, distributed engineering team based in Boston, Providence, and Vancouver.  Our customers rave about our full-stack approach to application performance because we help make web applications faster.  We make users happier by helping engineers make applications faster.  If you would like to see first-hand what we do, sign up for a free account or visit our product page.

Hudl: Front-End Engineer

(Nebraska, California, Texas, or New York.) What is Hudl?
Hudl is a software company that makes sports video analysis tools for coaches and athletes. Teams upload their game film to our web application, study it, and “break it down” by adding text notes, ink telestrations, and tagged metadata. Coaches then share the edited segments of video with groups of players on their team. Athletes can consume the annotated video on their iOS and Android devices throughout the week in preparation for their next game. If an athlete notices a great play, he or she can highlight it to appear on a public profile for fans, parents, and recruiters to see.

We're looking for a talented Front-End Engineer to join our team. Someone who:

  • Lives and breathes JavaScript. Node.js changed their life and they consider the language’s idiosyncrasies to be strengths, not weaknesses.
  • Bends webpages to their will. The only thing holding them back are browser capabilities, CPU speeds, and time.
  • Know their libraries and frameworks and justify using them. They read the source and can adapt it to their needs with plugins and extensions.
  • Can bust out a webpage given anything from a hi-fi Photoshop mockup to a wireframe napkin sketch.
  • Makes webpage interactions silky smooth, and it pains them when other websites don't.
  • Knows that performance is equally as important as function and that a fast page load time is not enough. Tools like YSlow are friends.

We:
  • Believe culture matters more than anything else.
  • Are young nerds, designers, marketers, and former jocks who love sports and tech.
  • Have a profitable, kick-ass product that is changing coaches’ and athletes’ lives.
  • Need you to help us build awesome software for coaches and athletes.
  • Are fans of rapid iteration. We average a dozen pushes to production each day.
  • Are as passionate about winning as the coaches we serve.
  • Promise you’ll love coming to work every day.

Working with Us, You Can:
  • Enjoy an unlimited vacation policy.
  • Sleep soundly with our paid health insurance and retirement plans.
  • Get hooked up with free tickets to NFL & Div. I sporting events.
  • Stuff yourself at free daily company-sponsored lunches.
  • Snack on free food and soda.

Job Perks: - $1,900 stipend to build or buy your own computer. After 2 years, you get to do it all over again and keep the old one. - $1,500 annual stipend to attend a professional conference of your choice. - Unlimited vacation. - Free lunch in our Lincoln, Neb. office.

Hudl: Android Developer

(Nebraska, California, Texas, or New York.) What is Hudl?

Hudl is a software company that makes sports video analysis tools for coaches and athletes. Teams upload their game film to our web application, study it, and “break it down” by adding text notes, ink telestrations, and tagged metadata. Coaches then share the edited segments of video with groups of players on their team. Athletes can consume the annotated video on their iOS and Android devices throughout the week in preparation for their next game. If an athlete notices a great play, he or she can highlight it to appear on a public profile for fans, parents, and recruiters to see.

 What are you looking for in an Android Developer?

  • Experience. We want someone who has written and shipped at least one app to the Play Store, and understands the dynamics of the development environment, the hardware, and the ecosystem. 
  • Appreciation for good UI and interaction. Material Design got you fired up. You want to push limits, not leaning on solely on default controls. When someone asks "Can this be done?", you answer, "We'll figure out a way."
  • Most of all: passion. About code, about this platform, about users. Our team loves building and shipping, whether it’s in the office or on their own time. They can’t stop reading and learning about the latest and greatest stuff. People here absolutely love what they do, and we expect the same from you.

What kind of stuff do would I be working on?

All kinds of stuff. We learned early on that mobile devices and tablets are great tools for consuming film, but that barely scrapes the surface of what they can do for coaches and players. A team from just about any sport can record short clips of practices/heats/points/attempts on their device, and then immediately watch it for some quick feedback. Players can quickly build highlight reels and share them out to friends, family, and recruiters - all within the app. In the office, coaches love the ease of viewing film on a bigger screen using Chromecast.

We won’t put all of our cards on the table here, but we know there are some awesome things we can do with the Android platform to help our coaches and players get better. We just need talented developers to chip in.


Anything else I should know?
  • Culture is huge for us. Every company says this, but we live, hire, fire, and reward folks by it. Take a second to look at our company values: http://www.hudl.com/about/values
  • We’re profitable. We’ve been selling subscriptions to our core product for the last 5 years, and teams keep coming back. We have the financial stability and freedom that most start-ups would die for.
  • We’re fast. We want to be on the cutting edge and ahead of the competiton - that means we ship quickly. Check out of our Jobs page for some hard numbers around our development cycles.

Job Perks: - $1,900 stipend to build or buy your own computer. After 2 years, you get to do it all over again and keep the old one. - $1,500 annual stipend to attend a professional conference (Google I/O, anyone?) - Unlimited vacation - Free lunch in our Lincoln, Neb. office

Company confidential: Executive Assistant/Project Coordinator for Super Awesome Unconventional Nonprofit

ABOUT YOU - This may be the perfect position for you if: 

• You are outrageously organized — Color-coding, folders, and systems are the stuff of your dreams. You'd enjoy reorganizing a paper-filled office or even a cluttered computer desktop. 

• You are a taskmaster You love taking an idea and turning it into a timeline of clear deliverables; this actually sounds like a fun way to spend a day to you! You can plan and execute an event from start to finish, whether it's an online training event, product launch or live conference at an international destination. 

• You are incredibly skilled at both micro and macro thinking — You know how to make sure the big picture is always moving forward by way of all the tiny details that need to get done. If someone gives you a vision of the results they want, you can create a plan to manifest that vision. The results are awesome and on point.  

• You also love dealing with people — You’re a natural mentor, encourager and sounding board, and knowing that you helped someone else reach their potential gives you enormous satisfaction.  

• You are an incredible problem solver — You are strategic, clever and quick on your feet. You’ll be the go-to person when we’re trying to figure out a sticky issue.  

• You are extremely resourceful and can figure anything out. You can unravel any problem and figure out what’s really going on, what the missing pieces are, and go out and find them.  

• You can research anything and learn how to do everything. You can master a new technology, create the perfect system and use your contacts to identify that one person who knows how to "get the job done."  

• You do NOT thrive on being micromanaged and love to be given the freedom to excel in your job. You are able to identify gaps or issues without being told. You will figure it out and find the best tool and procedure to resolve a matter.  

• You are tech-savvy (though you need not be a programmer ...although development and designs skills would be awesome and amazing!). You must be familiar with WordPress and the various social media platforms (especially Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest… and any others that are trending). You can easily learn that which you don’t know. You are even proficient with Google Calendar, GoToWebinar, Dropbox, Expedia (and other travel websites) and performance tracking websites.  

• You have an eye for graphic design and consistent branding (though not having such a design eye is not a deal-breaker). We create a lot of blog posts, video posts, publications and training materials. We have an awesome graphic designer but it would be nice if you can look at something and tell if it fits our brand.  

• You an excellent writer who can write corresponce and catch errors. You can write more than a 2-line text or 3-line email . A command of the written word is necessary.  

• You are open, direct, and straightforward. You believe that honesty, awareness, and ownership are the direct routes to problem solving. You’d rather not play the "blame game," but instead just correct the issue and keep moving! You are not a "yes" person who just goes along to get along. You don't mind working with strong (respectful A-type personalities). You know how to balance being supportive with being direct. You don't mind pointing out problems to the boss. But, you go beyond just pointing problems out; you bring a solution or two to the table.  

• You are a solution-based thinker who investigates why things went wrong, with the goal of improving the process. You believe that a process-problem lies at the root of every apparent people-problem. It is pretty impossible to faze you and you’re able to take a hit and keep rolling — your goal is to get it done, even if the path that gets there isn’t quite the one that you anticipated!  

ABOUT THIS ROLE - You will be the Executive Assistant/Program Coordinator for a tax-exempt women's education organization.  

• You will be "grand central station" for all of our projects. You will work with everyone to coordinate projects, then implement them in a timely manner and on budget.  

• You will break down our goals into deliverables, coordinate the team (when necessary), implement and execute the tasks, monitor the progress and deliver in a timely manner.    

• You are the go-to person for questions, resources, or whatever our team needs to get the job done.  

• You will translate big ideas into projects, from figuring out the master plan to figuring out exactly which details need to be executed when.  

• You will also be our "virtual office manager," doing HR/administrative support types of tasks like managing outsourcing and contractors, paying contractors and vendors, and interfacing with our bookkeeper to provide necessary information. Basically, you are the one who keeps our virtual office humming every day.   

• You keep our team happy and our projects on time.  

Some of your tasks will include:    

• translating big ideas into projects, deliverables and timelines  

• working with everyone on our team (business development manager and operations manager plus our contractors, including a graphic designer, content editor, video editor and web person when we find them) to determine their top 3 monthly goals, then tracking progress/success on those goals  

• identifying and monitoring our task management system, actively looking for roadblocks and making sure everything is progressing  

• overseeing all of our websites (3) and working with our team to make sure they’re up to date  

• overseeing course content creation — working with our team to break down the courses, put together the materials and make it live and functional for customers  

• facilitating weekly and daily team meetings  

Other tasks include:  

• scheduling meetings promptly using Google Calendar  

• being a reliable point of contact for current and potential clients, providing polite, helpful and authentic customer service    

• coordinating travel arrangements and other logistics for speaking engagements  

• setting up online workshops using Google+, webinar and conference call software  

• managing registration and details of online and in-person training events (acting as virtual liaison for venue, catering,etc.)  

• implementing our existing online marketing plan, including Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and other social media platform updates, blog posts, website updates and newsletter creation  

• managing online storage of documents using Dropbox  

• facilitating the billing, invoicing and contracting process when necessary  

ABOUT US - We are 501(c)(3) education company specializing in personal and professional development to empower a new generation of leaders. That means... we provide services and products (including online and live training, resources, publications, etc.) to equip people (especially women) to live a more passionate, purposeful and profitable life. We also have live events and other projects to help people create a business and life they love... their ideal life… a fulfilling life. We tend to attract professional women (25-45) who are entrepreneurial or want to pursue their passion.  

Additionally, we provide services to other 501(c)(3) organizations based on our published textbook about tax-exempt organizations (TEOs). We are not your typical "nonprofit" organization. We train “entrepreneurs with a heart” using the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status as the vehicle to raise funds. We also sell information products and webinars, and will be adding other new products and services in the next six months. Product launches, website launches, social and traditional media campaigns and book tours are on the calendar.The links to our sites will be provided after the initial screening process takes place.  

Our core team currently consists of two people: A professional speaker/author who provides consulting services to other TEOs. She is eager to hire "someone who does not want to 'do what we do' or 'be like me'..." So, current consultants and speakers need not apply.  The second team member is an operations manager who is eager to hire "someone who is tech-savvy (need not be a developer), understands social media, is a taskmaster, and is efficient and on time with deliverables."  

We believe that a person who enjoys supporting others and being behind the scenes would be the best candidate. We also believe that a person with such gifts should recognize that administering, managing and implementing projects requires talent and skill. Do you fit the bill? Many people want to be the "out front" person. You realize that your gifts, talents and skills are orchestrating the "back office" and you do it very well.  

You will work on exciting projects including 1) a college book tour to identify and train emerging leaders, 2) a media and corporate sponsorship campaign to advance our message, 3) an international women’s wellness event, 4) a marketing campaign for a tourism project, 5) an international marine education project for high school students, 6) the relaunch of our new resource websites for women and for nonprofit organizations.     

We are a virtual office — that means everyone (including you!) works independently from their remote locations. Your day-to-day will involve working closely with our small team so you need to be the kind of person who enjoys managing their own time.   

Are you the type of person who can manage your own time and schedule? Are you comfortable with working with others via computer, as well as speaking on the telephone or video conferencing?  

This is a 40/hr week contract position that will convert to full-time salaried work if we are a match. Initially, we were going to post this as part-time or freelance position but really want someone who is dedicated and committed to our projects... exclusively. We want someone who is honest, smart, teachable, professional... with a positive attitude. Did we say that you must be resourceful and organized (i.e. if you don't already know the answer, be able to find the answer on your own). You must have a reliable internet connection and be able to check emails or speak with us throughout the work day. Communication is a must.

Honesty, integrity, excellence, innovation and service are the core values of our business. If you like to see rapid growth, work on fun projects, engage with smart and creative people... and make it (whatever it is at the moment) happen, then perhaps we are a match.

Please submit your resume and take the time to complete our online application. Of course, we don't want JUST a boring resume! 

 Thanks in advance for your interest and consideration. Also, thanks for taking your valuable time to read this post.

Job Perks: This is a virtual position. Paid trips to live events depending on your location.
