Newell Rubbermaid: Lead Fronted Developer (HTML\CSS\PHP)

(Atlanta, GA or Anywhere in the United States) Play a hands-on development role, and deliver products in a rapid and dynamic environment. The candidate must possess excellent frontend engineering skills and be a pro-active solution-oriented individual with strong collaboration skills. This is not a interaction or visual design job. It is a frontend development (coding) job.

ABOUT THE TEAM & JOB LOCATION
The 30+ person team is geographically distributed across multiple states in the U.S. Specifically, the core frontend design and development team that you will work closest with consists of 8 people (including you):

  • • a Frontend Architect based in Minnesota (to whom you’ll report)
  • • a Magento/PHP Developer based in Ohio
  • • a DevOpsManager based in Maryland
  • • an Interaction Design team of 3 based in Georgia (at our Atlanta offices)
  • • a Director of eCommerce based in Georgia (at our Atlanta offices)
The remaining team members (eCommerce Operations & QA Teams) are based in North Carolina, Ohio, and Canada.

We are open to relocating candidates from outside the Atlanta, GA area; we are also open to candidates working remotely (must be U.S.-based) provided they can travel at least twice per year (1 full week per trip) to our Atlanta-based headquarters for team meetings. If you do end up working out of the Atlanta office, we have a wonderfully modern location complete with an on-site Gym, cafe (open for breakfast and lunch), Starbucks, and free parking. You’re also free to frequently work from home if based in Atlanta.

Lastly, you'll have to thrive on (or at least be comfortable with) doing the bulk of your collaboration over email/chat/Google hangouts and being mostly autonomous the rest of the time – this alone can be a huge perk of the job for the right person. If you're someone that enjoys frequent water cooler talk and happy hours, this might not be the place for you given the geographical distribution of the core team (however, there are still hundreds of other employees based in our Atlanta headquarters for you to interact with).

ABOUT THE TYPE OF ENVIRONMENT YOU'LL BE WORKING IN
  • We currently operate on 2-week sprints utilizing Scrum – Sprint Planning, Time Estimation, Daily Scrums, Burndown Charts, Sprint Reviews, and Sprint Retrospectives – religiously.
  • Sprints are structured on a mixture of maintenance tasks and new build projects which gives you the opportunity to work with a variety of people across the company – a definite benefit when it comes to developing your skills and building relationships with colleagues.
  • We work with 3rd parties (contractors, software/platform vendors, advertising agencies, retailers, etc.) so you will be interacting with them on various projects in addition to the core, internal team – we also incorporate their work into our sprints as well, so our partner selection is very dependent on their ability to integrate with our Scrum process.
  • Due to the complexity of the physical products we manufacture and sell through our eCommerce sites, configurator and order integration testing are a significant portion of our process when launching products across our eCommerce experiences – but like all software, bugs get missed and production hot-fixes are the norm even amidst an active sprint.
  • The frontend development team is made up of high performers and we all bridge gaps by reaching outside of what typically are our core areas of expertise or comfort zones between other frontend developers, CMS, QA, business stakeholders, retailers, IT, and other 3rd parties to help each other out and to produce the best experience possible. This requires the ability and patience to explain highly technical concepts to individuals with different backgrounds. In other words, day-to-day, this is not a shop full of pure developers, it's a real mix of experts of different technologies and areas of the business.
  • This team is purposely small and agile. We are nimble and we have the pace and creativity of a smaller company with some really talented folks making it feel very entrepreneurial within the safety and support of a larger organization.
TECHNOLOGIES WE'RE WORKING WITH
Here’s a short list of the technologies we're currently working with; we hope you’ll bring even more to the table:
  • Core Platform Development: PHP 5, MySQL 5, Zend Framework 1, Magento Enterprise, Websphere Commerce Feature Pack 7 (the Websphere platform is managed exclusively by the IT team, not the eCommerce team to which you’ll be reporting up through)
  • Frontend Development: Bootstrap 3, jQuery, LessCSS, SASS, HTML5, Websphere Aurora
  • Infrastructure: Rackspace cloud infrastructure (RHEL & CentOS), Atlassian Bamboo and chef for continuous integration/deployment, git, and Bitbucket for git repositories
  • Team Collaboration: Full Atlassian OnDemand Suite (JIRA, JIRA Agile, Confluence, Team Calendars, Tempo, Bamboo, HipChat, Bitbucket), inVision, Zapier, Google Hangouts
  • Workstation/phone: Your choice of Windows or Apple laptop, your choice of iOS or Android mobile device (paid for by the company)
RESPONSIBILITIES

Frontend Development
  • Write high-performance, reusable code for eCommerce UI components using HTML5, CSS, and Javascript
  • Write CSS using stylsheet languages such as LESS or SASS
  • Design and build scalable frameworks for eCommerce applications
  • Consider localization, scalability, and ease of maintenance in all solutions
  • Manage through cross-browser compatibility issues and browser degradation strategies
  • Develop UI components and web pages optimized for desktop, mobile devices and tablet devices using responsive frameworks
  • Perform visual and functional QA of web pages that have been developed based on your HTML to make sure they match the mockups from the graphic design team.
  • Apply a strong sense of interaction design to your work (while you may not be a design expert, you will still have an eye for ease of use and aesthetics of the user interface)
  • Take Photoshop PSD files of design mockups and build HTML / HTML5 web pages: slice and optimize images, create the HTML5, CSS3 style sheets, and style guides for use by the software development team.
  • Detailed eye towards creating pixel-perfect UIs

Collaboration
  • Provide guidance and leadership to the eCommerce Design team and review work with the UI Design team by providing concerns and technical implementation considerations for the designs they create
  • Demonstrated ability to define new approaches to complex design problems and convey solutions in the form of presentations, click through prototypes, and design specifications.
  • Must be process driven, possess strong prototyping design skills, careful attention to detail and have a solid understanding of user centered design principles

Qualifications
  • Bachelor of Science in CS or equivalent
  • 5+ years experience integrating front end with backend web services
  • Strong command of JavaScript, HTML/HTML5, DOM, CSS/CSS3, JSON
  • Strong experience with Bootstrap
  • Strong experience with jQuery and jQuery UI
  • Strong experience with git
  • Familiarization with contemporary JavaScript MVC frameworks
  • Familiarity with PHP is beneficial, but expertise is not required
  • Knowledge of user interface design and strong communication skills to work with business counter parts to create compelling consumer experiences
  • Forward-thinking; Interest in latest trends and emerging technologies on the web
  • Exceptional decision making and time management skills in determining how heavily to invest in proper design based on present and future constraints

vzaar Ltd: Customer Support Engineer

(Vauxhall, London, UK) vzaar is a professional video hosting platform. We are a customer-focused team with a great product that's really fun to work on. We're looking for a customer support engineer to work in our London office (Vauxhall, SW8 1SJ).

We need someone who is really confident dealing with people and can express themselves well in writing. Working for a web startup, you’ll also need to be really tech and internet savvy. Basically we want someone who can understand technical problems and explain the solutions.

An aptitude for working with HTML and CSS would be ideal. Some knowledge of JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, or Ruby would be even better. However, none of these things are deal-breakers. Ultimately we want someone who communicates well with customers, and everything else we’d be happy to teach you.

If you're not already in the tech sector, think of the role as a good way to get started: you can learn a lot, and get paid doing it. To start with, your time will be divided between responding to customer emails, answering phone calls and live chats, investigating bugs, and writing documentation. There’s plenty of scope for managing your own priorities, and you’ll soon find yourself honing your research skills whilst you look into customer problems. 

To sum it up neatly, candidates should (in no particular order):

  • Have excellent written and verbal English
  • Possess strong technical knowledge focused on the web
  • Be willing to learn and research problems
  • Live in London or be willing to move
  • Be good at problem solving and enjoy a challenge

 On top of that, it’d be an added bonus if you had: 
  • Basic web development skills
  • A good sense of humour

 If your application is successful, we’ll be in touch to give you a short homework assessment and arrange an interview. Assuming you get the gig, the hours are 09:00 - 18:00, Monday to Friday. The salary's £18,000 - £22,000, depending on experience.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Please note: We are not working with recruitment firms for this position.

Vivint Solar: JavaScript Full-stack Developer

(Thanksgiving Point, Lehi, UT) Description

You’re looking for an awesome place to hang your hat that is not stuck on strongly typed “enterprise” programming languages, structured relational database design, or server templating. We know because we were too. In fact, you’re probably looking for a creative company that will allow you to put your mad JavaScript skills to good use not just on the client, but on the server too.

That basically makes us twinners! We build almost everything in JavaScript. And we’re not just talking about code running in the browser (where JavaScript is your only legitimate option), but on the server, and the database as well. We believe that amazing developers can be even more amazing when they can focus on a single technology. So we build our front-end code with libraries like Angular, our back-end services in Node.js, and store all our bits in CouchDB. We pretty much love that stack, but our bosses think that it works better with unlimited fountain drinks (free), free lunch (there is such a thing), an onsite gym (free), and a medical clinic (yes, that’s free too).

Skills & Requirements

Since we have been doing such an amazing job, our company seems to grow without end. So we were wondering if you and your friends want to come join us? We only want the best JavaScripters on the planet. Hopefully that means you. If you are under the impression that JavaScript and Java are the same thing, or that jQuery is basically the same as JavaScript (or Java), you might not be ready for us. If you are ready for us, let us know because we think it would be great to have you.

You should want to be a full-stack programmer. If you are just plain awesome at front-end development, but don’t quite have a lot of Node.js experience, we can work with that. If you just want to do Jade on the server, we can’t really work with that, so thanks for reading this far.

We would like you to be aware that we occasionally play dumb games in the office. So if you are easily annoyed by engineers goofing around in and around your work area, this might not be a good place for you to work. Also, we are sometimes sarcastic. And sometimes just plain rude, but all in fun.

Job Perks: A workplace where creativity and diversity are valued. You pick your hardware. A top-of-the-line MacBook Pro is typical. Free lunch. Free soft drinks. Onsite gym (counterbalances the free soft drinks) Company medical clinic (for the family) Modern technology stack Us. We like ourselves. We think you will too.

Apply: Send us as much about your professional self as you can. Ideally, you'll have a GitHub profile or something similar to show off your work. Include your LinkedIn profile if you have one.

·      Tell us about your favorite hobby! Be as brief or as long as you’d like. It should be something you’re passionate about, so we’d expect it to be a little lengthy (you can always save the long-winded version for the interview).

About 1bid1

TrendyMinds: Senior Frontend Developer with a Friendly Disposition

(Indianapolis, Indiana) Description

We're looking for a Sr. Web Developer who wants to join an energetic team.

We want someone who understands the latest in front-end development, with a good eye for design detail. We're searching for an experienced front-end Sr. Web Developer that is on the bleeding edge of development trends. We also want this coding genius to possess the ability (and passion) to work closely with our creative and development teams to bring complex sites to life. This means we want someone with experience that can make our clients win in their competitive fields.

As Sr. Web Developer, you’ll lead our team to bring interactive concepts to life – that means you need to be fast at understanding the complex needs of enterprise organizations, but savvy enough to pick the correct path for success.

Are you someone who delights at looking "under the cover" of websites you visit? Does it make you mad to see a website that isn't responsive? Do you dream of ways to speed up load times? If this sounds like you, we'd love to meet!

Skills & Requirements

We’re going to assume you have amazing development skills and general experience with server-side technology, including PHP, but just to be safe we've written a quick overview of some of the technical aspects of this gig.

We’d prefer that you have at least six years, post-collegiate experience. However, if you are a genius with a high school work permit, we’ll negotiate with you and your parents to find a workable solution. In either case, you should have expert-level skills in HTML, CSS and SASS and possess a strong knowledge of Photoshop. You should be known for writing strong, structured JavaScript and be able to work with tools like jQuery and Grunt to get the job done.

While we utilize ExpressionEngine, Wordpress and other blogging/CMS platforms, we are always looking for new tools to help our clients. So, we are going to expect you to stay on top of cutting-edge front-end development tools, practices and technology (CSS3, canvas, media queries, responsive design, HTML5) to help push our teams to new heights. Also, we need you to be proficient with version control like Git or Subversion and will expect you to help keep our builds organized.

We want to see your portfolio that shows experience with responsive web design and development, so make sure to send it to us. This will also help us learn a bit about you and witness your vigilance with web standards, accessibility and usability. We also need to know that you like your creative counterparts and won’t hiss at them when they walk past. At TrendyMinds, our dev team enjoys collaborating with designers and strategic account team members to build interactive prototypes and provide technical guidance to assist in magically transforming design comps into working HTML and CSS.

If you have a great personality, enjoy a cocktail or three, and are an all-around team MVP, you’ll go far with our firm. Join us!

About TrendyMinds

We are a team of fun, caring and hard-working individuals that enjoy helping our clients succeed. We employ in-depth strategic planning with every client project, and we are equipped to assist in a full range of services, including: advertising, marketing, mobile, PR, social media, branding, video production and web design and development. Our success has been documented by back-to-back listings in the Inc 500/5000 list and by being named the 2nd fastest growing privately held company in Central Indiana.

Our team enjoys competitive salaries, 401k contributions regardless of their personal investment, health insurance, 18 days of paid time off annually, approximately 10 company paid holidays, weekly happy hour in our own bar (we love bourbon, but stock many other options), a rooftop deck with a grill for those times when a cold sandwich just won't do, and because we know food and beverages are important, we stock our fridges and cabinets with free sodas, coffee and snacks.

If you enjoy cooking or eating, you'll fit right in. We love to cook for our clients and each other as much as we love to create fantastic work, which is why both of our office buildings have full kitchens. Chances are pretty good that you won't leave hungry after a day at our office.

From organized Hump Day Happy Hours each week in our own bar/lounge to sponsoring various charity events throughout our city, including the inaugural REV event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the race month of May, TrendyMinds provides a supportive atmosphere for people to thrive both within our building and out in the community. Take a look at http://instagram.com/trendyminds for a glimpse of our culture in action or like our page at http://www.facebook.com/trendyminds to stay in touch with us.

Big Fish Design Ltd.: Frontend web developer

(Chelsea, London, UK) Big Fish Design are looking for a talented junior or middleweight frontend developer to join our established and tight-knit digital team.

We’re a multidisciplinary design agency who work with some great clients — people like Yeo Valley, Dorset Cereals, Tyrrells crisps, and Gü puds. We work across branding, packaging and digital to create for our clients beautiful things of every kind.

The person we're looking for has probably got at least a year of HTML and CSS under their belt, and probably also has experience of using a pre-processor like LESS or SASS to write better code. They might also be familiar with the principles of writing good, modular CSS, along the lines of "OO" CSS, SMACSS, etc. to create sites that are structured logically and can be maintained easily for years to come — or even if they're not experienced with it, they're probably interested in the sound of it!

While a lot of what we do is developing websites — getting visually stunning, engaging content seen by millions of people — we also do a lot of more complex and interesting projects, including things like developing large-scale HTML5 games for our clients.

We're looking for bright and enthusiastic people more than we're looking for years of experience, so if you like the sound of us, our clients, and the way we work, apply away — even if you've just got into web development from another career.

Things that are going to be pretty essential:

  • Knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • Some experience with Javascript and a desire to learn more
Things that would be really handy:
  • Responsive experience — everything you do at Big Fish will be responsive, so that will be easier if you already have experience
  • Knowledge of WordPress theming — nothing particularly complex
  • Experience with Git —we use it for everything
  • A good eye for design and a passion for the visual — we're definitely a design-led agency, so if that appeals to you then you're likely to flourish
Our office is based in Chelsea, and we have some great views from the office east down the Thames towards central London. Our digital team is ten strong, and we currently have four frontend developers.

We allow flexible working hours and there's some opportunity for remote working (though it's fundamentally an office-based position). We use Slack for all our communication and we think it's great — email sucks.

We’re strong believers in a flat hierarchy, and think that people work best when they’re given autonomy — so there’ll be no pointy-haired pencil-pushing here. Tech-wise, we’re an all-Mac shop, and we use Git for version control. Feel free to use whatever development environment suits, but our developers tend to use SublimeText or Vim.

Some of our work

We've worked on a fair few sites over the years; here are some examples: Salary

We like to pay people what we think they're worth, so feel free to let us know.

: Senior Platform Engineer @ Scribd

(San Francisco, CA) About Us:
Scribd is building the world's online library. We're already profitable and one of the largest sites on the web, with a global user base of over 80 million. But our journey is only 1% finished. 

We are still a very small team iterating rapidly, and we're looking for excellent engineering minds to take us to the next level. 

Scribd's book subscription service (think "Netflix for books") gives readers unlimited access to over 400,000 books from over 900 publishers for a low monthly fee. Using Scribd is like bringing a national library into your home, where you can browse and read as much as you want from your tablet, phone, or computer. 

The Role:
We'll be adding a ton of exciting new features to the Scribd app in the next year, and we need your help to accomplish everything we're dreaming of!

Some examples of projects we're currently tackling:
* Building the world's best recommendation engine for books
* The book equivalent of Pandora's "Music Genome Project": an ambitious project to organize all the books in the world and use it to take book discovery to the next level
* Building the most beautiful and powerful reading experience on both web and mobile
* Secret stuff we can't talk about publicly, but which we'd love to fill you in on :)

A few examples of projects we completed this year:
* A distributed, scaling, caching image server written in Go that processes millions of images a day
* A fuzzy matching text filter that can instantly detect two similar, but not identical, passages of text out of a database of all the books in the world
* An automated classification system for automatically optimizing across numerous machine learning algorithms, written in Python
* A completely JavaScript eBook reader that can compute the layout of every word in a 1,000 page book in less than a second

As a Sr. Platform Engineer, you'll work on all aspects of the product, and you'll probably push code into production in your first couple of days here. 

Most of the Scribd web development is done with a full-stack model, with engineers owning complete features end to end. This means you'll have a great deal of control and input into what you're building, and you'll use our product daily. 

Our Stack:
Because there are so many features we're working on, we use a variety of technologies, and are always open to whatever's best to get the job done. That said, here are some of what you're likely to work with:

Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, jQuery, and Backbone, Coffeescript, Python, Java, Go, MySQL, Solr and ElasticSearch, Scala, Twitter's "Scalding" framework: Scala on Mapreduce, Hive, Hadoop, Hbase, Android and OS/Objective C, Impala, Jenkins + Multijob, Nginx, Redis, Sphinx

Whether you're an expert with these tools now or you're looking to learn, if you can build software, read on!

Our Ideal Candidate Has:
* At least 4 years of software engineering experience working in any modern language - substance and skills are more important than flavor!
* A solid background in engineering and CS fundamentals, so you can hit the ground running with us on some of our more complex projects. 
* Something that makes you stand out as an engineer, whether it's an impressive side project or open source contribution, competition wins, career accomplishments, academic achievements, or anything else you can wow us with! 

Bonus Points for:
* A CS degree
* Experience working on large scale websites
* Great product sense, understanding of the web ecosystem, and ability to contribute to product discussions 
* An interest in being a part of Scribd's mission - expanding access to great books

What We Offer:
* Competitive base salary
* Full benefits (medical, dental, vision)
* Create your own workstation with any type of equipment
* Free catered meals from local restaurants, three times a day
* Frequent company activities ranging from weekly happy hours to group indoor skydiving
* Generous equity to give you true skin in the game
* Flat organizational structure that ensures your influence on products we build
* Imagine mixing go-karts and quadricopters with free food and company ski trips!

Please Note:
* International candidates willing to relocate are welcome to apply!

We Are Mammoth: Product Designer

(Seattle, WA) Design at We Are Mammoth informs everything because everything at We Are Mammoth is a product; the applications we build for our clients, the community we create as coworkers, and the fantastic interactions generated when the two meet. They’re products that deserve constant innovation, and we’re looking for good souls to drive it all forward.

For a digital product designer, that means getting lost and found in research, executing experiences with coherent UI and writing, seeing everything through to production, and following up with solid measurement and feedback gathering.

As a designer at We Are Mammoth:

  • You will design. That means sketching, writing, measuring, and interviewing. It means arguing, listening, winning, and losing. It means doing whatever the customer and product deserve, and using any tool necessary to provide it. You'll probably open Photoshop once in a while too :)
  • You will support our growing consulting business. We have new business opportunities that range from branding to building 401k modeling tools for companies of 100k+ employees. You'll help source videography, photography, and copywriting. You'll participate in the hunt.
  • You will participate in the full life cycle of feature development and marketing initiatives for both of our products, DoneDone.com and KinHR.com. Both have ample opportunity for UI design and branding improvements, and both have product roadmaps that need your contributions.
  • You will help build our design team of writers, researchers, and visual designers.
  • Your mark on design will be proven by numbers, feedback, and gut; in that order. If you can't measure it, it didn't happen.
About We Are Mammoth

Our apps are used by companies like PatagoniaTeehan + Lax, and Hello Design. We have a standard of excellent customer support, rapid design and development, and an unparalleled stewardship of teamwork. As a member of We Are Mammoth, you are always moving. Never launching. Always releasing.

We’re a team of 17 distributed throughout the country. Our design team is on the west coast so digital product designers in Seattle or Portland are definitely preferred. If you're an amazing problem solver with a killer portfolio anywhere in the U.S. works as well. You do, however, need to be a U.S. citizen.

Requirements
  • Cross-platform product design experience for mobile (iOS/Android) & web
  • An ability to present and sell your work to clients, teams, and stakeholders
  • Demonstrated visual and interaction design skills
  • Ability to prioritize projects, communicate progress, and deliver on time 
  • HTML/CSS and latest responsive design techniques
  • You're not afraid to write. Copy is interface.
  • Experience working with distributed teams is plus but not required
  • Well-rounded - You have passions outside of work and design
  • A killer portfolio showing a range of digital product designs and the problems you've helped solve must be included to be considered.
Working at We Are Mammoth: 
We opt for a smarter, constantly tuned workplace.
  • Competitive benefits package including: medical/dental/vision coverage, life insurance, short- and long-term disability programs, paid time off (PTO), employer matched retirement funding account.
  • We have a beautiful office in Chicago's Fulton Market. It's like a home, a library, and a gallery mashed into one.
  • We do quarterly check-ins, annual salary reviews and have an employee equity plan and bonus based on performance.

CloudPhysics: UX Designer

(Mountain View, CA) Designers – Help us bring beauty & soul to Enterprise software!  

CloudPhysics is a well-funded (Series C at $15 million) and rapidly growing startup based in Mountain View, CA. Our product is like a ‘Fitbit’ for virtual datacenters, providing IT admins and architects valuable insights on what’s working and what’s not--enabling them to improve performance, ensure stability and reduce costs. We have thousands of users and several customers already!

We seek a savvy, talented, highly skilled UX Designer to help us elevate the design of our web-based SaaS app to the next level, with elegance & novelty like Nest, Tesla, or Apple—but for Enterprise IT! We are well on our way (with full executive support) and this demanding yet rewarding role offers a rare chance to be a key player at the forefront of a revolution in IT + “Big Data”. Are you the one? Read on...

You will be a member of the CloudPhysics team, working full-time and on-site at our headquarters in Mountain View, CA. This includes direct collaboration with our Director of UX and UI engineers, as well as product managers & sales & marketing teams. Plenty of large whiteboards, colorful stickies, and glossy 27” displays are at your disposal :-) We rely upon analytical skills, customer research, and expert creativity to deliver novel solutions. We embrace startup life with intense table tennis matches, hot sauce tastings from our collection, and of course, our always “interesting” team lunches ;-)

What about the work? As UX Designer, you will tackle a range of juicy problems in the realm of Enterprise IT analytics:

  • A fresh on-boarding experience
  • A well-crafted partner portal
  • An innovative way to build custom reports
  • And ‘dashboards’ that don’t look or act like ‘dashboards’. It’s a crazy yet fun paradox!
To succeed in this unique role, you should exhibit the following: 

- Self-driven ability to translate an overarching UX vision into detailed designs
- Exemplary visualization skills backed by good design judgment, with attention to details (from alignment to animation to states & conditions)
- Intuitive sense for "first principles”, fearlessly asking “why” and challenging assumptions or conventions
- Armed with standard UX/HCI theory, but willing to explore novel sources of inspiration to dream up viable solutions
- Knows when to be opportunistic versus conventional, with well communicated, defensible rationale and criteria
- Very comfortable taking (and triaging) feedback from highly opinionated non-designers, including executives
- Remain focused amid fast-paced Lean/Agile schedules with shifting priorities due to evolving customer demands
- Not easily intimidated by functional scale, UI complexity, technical dependencies, or specialized knowledge—but instead relishes the challenge to prove yourself!

Daily Responsibilities:

- Brainstorm, sketch, wireframe, and mock-up concepts and solutions of varying fidelity levels. Quickly, with lots of options! These may be shown to our engineers or Sales VP or CEO, in a moment's notice.

- Map out the flows and draft storyboards for various use cases, illustrating pros/cons and alternatives.

- Finalize production quality graphics for delivery and implementation with our UI engineers.

- Create interactive prototypes with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to pass off to our developers.

Desired Skills and Experience:

- 3+ years experience in a fast-paced, iterative, Agile/Lean environment
- Expertise in creating UI mock-ups & storyboards for user feedback, using standard Adobe CS tools
- Experience translating user research findings into new or iterative solutions, for UI implementation with UI Devs
- BONUS: Ability to prototype modern, fresh behaviors using HTML/CSS/JavaScript
- BS or MS in HCI, interaction design, graphic design, or equivalent degree

Interested? To apply, send your resume with online portfolio link to the Director of UX Uday Gajendar, uday@cloudphysics.com. Please include the position you are applying for in the subject of your email. 

Apply: Please include links to relevant portfolio samples, and include the position you are applying for in the subject of your email. Thanks!

Canvas: Lead Ruby on Rails Engineer

(New York, NY) Canvas is seeking a Lead Ruby on Rails Engineer to join our growing technical team. Come help us build highly interactive, multiplatform sites and applications for some of the world’s leading brands including The High Line, NBC, Showtime and the Smithsonian Channel.

We’re looking for a lead engineer with experience architecting, building and maintaining test-driven, object-oriented and modular projects. Our main framework of choice is Ruby on Rails though those we often work with javascript frameworks like AngularJS or Ember.js. All of the work we do excels in both engineering and design, so the right engineer for this position should feel comfortable working with front end engineers. If you enjoy building products from soup to nuts, this is the right job. This is a full time coding position which means there is a mixture of both green field code and updates to existing code bases. We strongly encourage growth and development amongst our teams so the person filling this role would be expected to continue their own education both in and out of work while also working to mentor junior engineers.

Here are some qualities of the people we think would do well in this position:

  • Tenacious: There is often the right way and the quick way to get things done. You know how and when to implement the quick way, but constantly strive for the right way.
  • Resourceful: We have many different clients with many different problems. We’re looking for someone who feels comfortable working across stack and even across platform. You don’t need to be an expert in everything, but have experience with a lot.
  • Open: We’re looking for someone who is willing to help teach and innovate at Canvas. Code you write may be open sourced, discussed in blog posts or presented at meetups and conferences. We want you to help us lead the charge.
We're looking for engineers who:
  • "Get" Programming: This is a senior level position and we’re a company who likes to hire and mentor junior engineers. Our clients’ projects sometimes mean having thousands of people looking at our work, per second. These things mean that our senior engineers need to have a deep knowledge of Rails and the Web stack.
  • Can Scale: Our clients are all very different and have very different needs. We're looking for someone who can help us build projects at the right level of scale. Building a project for a primetime TV Show has different requirements than building an internal application. You’re able to recognize the difference between.
  • Know How to Plan: We believe in writing tests, prototyping where appropriate, and measuring twice and cutting up PSDs once. You're comfortable working with other engineers to architect an application and follow through in building it. Don’t worry—we’re flexible and able to change as needed. But, there is always a game plan.
  • Keep on Pushing: We pride ourselves on being a company with a great work-life balance. That doesn't mean there aren't some late nights here and there, though. We want team members who are going to keep on pushing right through the finish line.
Things we bet engineers would like to know about us:
  • We care about our build process: We use tools like CircleCI, HipChat, RSpec, Cucumber, Capybara and a load of others to make engineering at Canvas a treat. That means that the right engineer for this role is someone who wants to be helping the team work smarter, not harder.
  • We use the right tools for the job: We love Rails, but are always looking at new technologies. After all, to us, Rails is a framework and a means to an end, not a dogma. We've been enjoying working with different JavaScript frameworks and toolsets like AngularJS, Ember.js and React and are keeping a close eye on the right project to use Go for.
  • We spend time to try new things: We organize pizza and screencast nights where we watch screencasts and try out new technology while eating delicious pizza. And when we have a little downtime we have hack days where we build out new tools we may want to use in the office (right now we’re working on a really smart communication hub for engineering.)
This is a great opportunity to join our team and make a contribution at all levels of development, from prototyping through delivery. If you're interested, send us an e-mail and we'll set up a time to chat. We may ask you the worst movie you’ve seen twice. It’s just how we roll.

Job Perks: Insurance, 401(k), Bagel Wednesdays, Bi-Weekly Team Hangs, Bi-Weekly Pizza and Screencasts Sessions, Book/Conference/Training Budget, MacBook Airs and Big Monitors, Cold Drinks and Yummy Snacks, Dart Board, 490 square feet of white boards, Discounted ZipCar Memberships and Rates

Lonely Planet: Front End Software Developer

(London, UK) About the role:
Front End Developers at Lonely Planet work on the core products of lonelyplanet.com alongside Product, Design and other engineering teams. They help shape and deliver an engaging and beautiful lonelyplanet.com at lightning fast speeds.

The Lonely Planet Online team is responsible for delivering lonelyplanet.com, a place that inspires, connects and helps travellers. We are challenged with bringing over 40 years of authored travel content to life on the web in a way that is engaging for our community and relevant for individual travellers.We’re passionate about our products and the evolving technologies we use to build them.

We want engineers that want to build stuff quickly, probably break things along the way and fix it even faster. We use lean principles. We value rapid deployment, metrics driven engineering and experimentation.Do you contribute to an open source project or write a blog? Let us know. We’re interested in what you’re excited about. Here’s what we’ve been up to:

We're looking for someone who:
  • understands the complexities of big websites.
  • wants sites to be fast. Like, really fast - and will keep pushing for it.
  • is agnostic about the technology stack and will use the right tool for the job.
  • cares about the user experience, whether that relates to visual design, the website speed, or ensuring we can deliver new features fast enough.
You:
  • understand the fundamentals of programming and software engineering. Having to work with code in a new language shouldn't scare you.
  • are highly skilled in writing and architecting Javascript for large applications.
  • understand progressive enhancement and what it means to the end user, as well as how to leverage it to build robust and fast web sites.
  • understand the design principles behind MVC and the benefits & drawbacks of using the currently popular client-side MVC frameworks.
  • are proficient in writing scalable and collision-free CSS. You understand that it's the simplest part of the stack to learn, the part that needs the most maintenance and the easiest to get wrong. You will have come up with techniques to manage and contain applications which require large amounts of CSS.
  • understand how the browser works internally and how that affects how you write features in order to make them as performant as possible.
  • are happy debugging rendering problems, knowing that getting the code to the user is now only part of the problem.
  • understand and preach the continuous delivery cycle including testing, fast feedback and continuous deployment.
  • have no issue using advanced features of Git and should have some basic understanding of how it works internally.
  • need to understand technology problems as part of a broader product vision.
  • have passion for travel and interest in building systems that connect travellers with content and each other.
  • respect Ron Swanson (OK, this one isn’t really a requirement).
Our Technology:
We’re big believers in ‘right tool for the right job’ and encourage engineers to try new technology. Currently our stack includes:Sass, Haml, Mustache, Javascript, Coffeescript. Ruby (with and without Rails), Java, Lua, Node and maybe even some Perl.We want engineers to be involved in the product, not just the code.At Lonely Planet we:
  • support a healthy work-life balance
  • provide flexible working arrangements
  • work as a unified team across Design, Development, Product, Operations and with broader groups of talented people
  • are pretty relaxed about most things (every now and then someone even swears, you have been duly warned)
  • don’t really care what you wear (so long as you are clothed)
  • are obsessed with table tennis (not all of us).

: iOS Engineer

(San Francisco, CA) About Us:
Scribd is a technology company based in San Francisco. We are building the world's online library and we're looking for talented people to help us. 

Scribd's book subscription service (sometimes called the "Netflix for books") gives readers unlimited access to over 400,000 books from over 900 publishers for a low monthly fee. Using Scribd is like bringing a national library into your home, where you can browse and read as much as you want from your tablet, phone, or computer. 

Scribd is already profitable and one of the largest sites on the web, with a global user base of over 80 million. But our journey is only 1% finished. We are still a very small team iterating rapidly, and we're looking for excellent engineering minds to take us to the next level. 

The Role:
Scribd is now a top 10 app in the eBooks category, and we've grown our installs by a factor of 10 over the last 6 months. We also have incredible user engagement: one of our users spent 42 hours using the Scribd iPhone app in one week!

But we've done all this with an iOS team of just 1-2 people. To take the app to the next level, we're looking for an iOS Developer to join our team and help us build the Netflix for eBooks!

Our goal is to invent the world's best reading experience for mobile devices. To do that, we need to make an amazing reader for all kinds of written content, get offline & syncing exactly right, and build a content discovery experience that always finds you something you actually want to read.

As an iOS Engineer at Scribd, you'll have the opportunity to learn from our small but excellent (if we do say so ourselves!) team and solve real challenges for an app that is more than just the hottest game - we truly believe that we're building a meaningful product, and that we can get people to read more by making reading easier and more beautiful on mobile devices. 

While we still have work to do, you should have a look at our iOS app. We'd love to know what you think. Scribd on the App Store 

Our Ideal Candidate Has:
* A CS degree or an equivalent background in software engineering prior to moving to mobile.
* At least one year of iOS development experience.
* Solid understanding of iOS frameworks and development.

Bonus Points For:
* An impressive iOS project - in the app store, open source, or something you can share with us. 
* Great design & product sense.
* Experience in areas besides iOS - Android, web development, etc.
* Experience building book, magazine, PDF or news reading applications.
* Experience with Core Data.

What We Offer:
* Competitive base salary
* Full benefits (medical, dental, vision)
* Create your own workstation with any type of equipment
* Free catered meals from local restaurants, three times a day
* Frequent company activities ranging from weekly happy hours to group indoor skydiving
* Generous equity to give you true skin in the game
* Flat organizational structure that ensures your influence on products we build
* Imagine mixing go-karts and quadricopters with free food and company ski trips!

Please Note:
* International candidates willing to relocate are welcome to apply! 

How To Apply:
The Sourcery will be the first point of contact.

Flickerbox, Inc.: Web Developer

(San Francisco, CA and Portland, OR) Web Developer (PHP/HTML5) for San Francisco/Portland Web Marketing Agency 

Are You Awesome AND Modest? Well versed in PHP? Either a Front-End Developer or a PHP-based CMS Developer? Do you know your way around a LAMP stack? If so, Flickerbox, Inc. is looking for you. This is a full-time, on-site position at either our San Francisco or Portland office.

You've got excellent attention to detail and you understand that great communication starts with listening. Maybe you've even been lucky enough to learn, first hand, that ego and inflexibility can kill the creative process. A strong work ethic is part of your core because you love what you do and you thrive in an environment where you can teach and learn every day.

You are excited to work on all aspects of a site and you love clean, well-structured, modern markup that breathes life into static comps. Your markup is tight, clean, and more than ready to face a world full of browser quirks and unanticipated end-user situations. You communicate well in a team environment, discussing hairy IE layout issues, jQuery form validation options, site deployment best practices, and the review, selection, and integration of new libraries and technologies. You might even be the type to skip lunch because of a lively LAMP conversation, even if you've never edited a httpd.conf file by hand before.

You've worked with Drupal as a themer or module developer and are comfortable with the essential core and contributed modules. Maybe you've customized WordPress templates and added your contributions to the functions.php file to extend WordPress in a clean and maintainable way. You are current with the latest trends in PHP development and strive to employ only the most useful and valuable bits.

Your local Mac work-flow is something you're constantly improving; there are plenty of tools out there and the ones you're using make life easy, fast, and fun. Of course you're familiar with Homebrew, Subversion/Git, Responsive layouts, various grid systems, and JavaScript frameworks. You've got your favorites but are able to make the best choices based on the needs of the client. You could talk forever, and sometimes do, about the myriad of tools you've tried and which ones you can't live without.

If you've got hands on experience with any of the following, let us know. We use all of these things, daily: revision control systems, bug tracking systems, content management systems, Salesforce, marketing automation systems like Marketo, HubSpot and Eloqua, wikis, web server environments, and technical writing.

We are super busy creating, updating, and improving the websites of technology companies in the Bay Area who use the web to find and aquire new customers. To that end, we are looking for you to contribute to our endless internal conversations so we can deliver great work to our clients.

Flickerbox, Inc. is a fourteen-year-old web marketing agency headquartered in San Francisco. We specialize in website development, support, and marketing automation. Our clients include Okta, Platfora, LiveOps, Sumo Logic, Pure Storage, and Pentaho, just to name a few. We offer excellent benefits and a fun, vibrant working environment.

***** The Fine Print (attention to detail matters) *****

If you are qualified and would like to apply, DO NOT send a resume, just answer the following questions and reply in a plain-text email. Yes, it's really that easy. ;)

    -----

    Pointpath Studios is looking for a motivated, talented, mid-level PHP developer with front-end capability.
    You'd be developing web sites, building web applications and solving painful problems for a growing group of clients, primarily in the financial services industry. 

    We're a small team in Brooklyn, so you'd have plenty of control over your workflow, technologies and tools. Our focus is on the end user - quality user interface and excellent user experience - and we're open to whatever technologies and approaches will achieve that. However, almost all of our existing code is in PHP, so a strong knowledge of object-oriented PHP is a must.

    The job is focused on the back end, but some front end chops are necessary. We value clean code and good practices, but our primary interest is in your ability to execute and ship working solutions.


    We're super relaxed here, and quality of life is one of our core values. Hours are flexible, vacation is as-needed and we're committed to our lives outside the office. Brew beer, tinker with motorcycles, play with the Skilsaw or introduce us to something new. Visit our site at pointpath.co to learn more.

    Job Description
    We’re looking for a new team member that is driven and constantly looking for new challenges but at the same time thorough in execution and attentive to details. This is a full-time position based out of our office located at the intersection of residential Williamsburg (yes, that one) and industrial Bushwick. We have a large loft space bathed in light, filled with plants and all the espresso you can drink.

    The job requires that you have:

    • The ability to juggle multiple projects with varying deadlines
    • A good understanding of design and an eye for detail
    • A positive attitude and a sense of humor
    • Curiosity
    • Willingness to work from Brooklyn
    Necessary skills:
    • Object Oriented PHP5+
    • At least one MVC PHP framework (CodeIgniter is a plus, as it powers some of our existing projects.)
    • Thorough experience with a particular CMS (Let us know what you like, make a case for it. Not Wordpress please.)
    • HTML, CSS & JS (Bootstrap & other frameworks included)
    • MySQL
    Useful skills: 
    • The ability to merge clients specs with design and develop a production-ready product
    • An understanding of web analytics
    • Able to clean motorcyle carburetors
    • Working with servers
    • Version control
    • An interest in learning new techniques
     Please email us your resume with cover letter and a link to work you've done. Github, personal site, live projects, whatever works. Ideally we'd like to see some actual code, written in PHP.

    If you'd like to apply in a slightly more interesting way - try jobs.pointpath.co

    Job Perks: Healthcare provided, blocks from Robertas Pizza & dog-friendly.

    Apply: - In your cover letter, tell us about yourself, what you do when you're not slinging code and why you think you'd like to work here. By the way, what's your favorite CMS and why?

    • Write clean, maintainable code.  We use git, Travis CI and Vagrant for our dev/test environment.
    • Process unstructured data into a form suitable for analysis (including web scraping, calling APIs, MySQL DBs, working with our in house data stores, etc, all at scale).
    • Take initiative, be a self-starter and awesomely creative.
    Not to mention be comfortable doing all of this in the cloud!

    Requirements:
    • Experienced SDE (Data Science/Big Data uses primarily Python and C++ [numpy/Cython/sklearn])

    The Hired Guns: Lead Product Manager

    (New York, NY) This young, Europe-based e-commerce player is making a big splash across the pond, as they have already surpassed their top competitor in online sales. The time is right for global expansion, and New York has been established as the center of their North American operations. This is where you come in. We are looking for a Lead Product Manager who can take ownership of its US products to ensure that they are truly world-class while also locally relevant.

    The product management and technical talent in Europe is truly amazing. This upstart company has only been around for a little more than two years. Yet with an extremely talented staff that hails from some of the top brands in Silicon Valley, they have built an incredible product. The Europe team will be at the hub, and you will be a spoke (in the hub-and-spoke model). You will be tasked with making the US product experience (both web and mobile) best in class, owning the local product decisions in the context of the greater global product evolution, as you are ultimately a part of the global team. The Lead Product Manager’s focus will be on ensuring that users’ experience with the product is one that surprises and delights them. This will involve customer research, competitive research, prototyping, launching, learning, and improving.

    The team works Agile methodology, and they believe in moving fast, to launch early and often. Constant improvement’s the name of the game here, and so is thoughtful design.

    Candidate Profile
    In your career, you’ve worked on a variety of products that delivered an impact. Mobile and e-commerce, particularly B2C, are great things to have, but what makes you ideal for this role is your experience working on a global product. Perhaps you have been in the HQ for a global product, thinking about the regional versions, or possibly you have been in the regional office of a global brand, where you focused on how to localize its global product. Either way, you understand how to think global even if the task at hand is to act local. Each stage of your development has come with increased responsibilities and bigger chances to make a difference in both UX and overall design. Your colleagues say that you’re a natural problem-solver, whether it’s for more rational workflows or for a more intuitive feature.

    You are as skilled at talking with non-product stakeholders as you are with technical folks, and you’re good at negotiating and making sure that their needs are being met.

    Because the quality and quantity of communication with HQ will help determine success or failure in this role, your ability to communicate extremely clearly and efficiently isn’t just lip service. It’s a core strength of yours.

    Let’s face it, all those distances and time zones can create friction for getting things done. So the person who’s already conquered problems like these will be way ahead of the game. Such candidates will also be in a good position to understand how to balance the needs of a core, scalable product against providing specific customizations tailored to a local audience.

    As we said above, this is a pure Agile shop, and it’s been that way from the first. So if you aren’t quite on board with grooming user stories, Scrum planning, and constant iteration, it’s probably not the right fit.

    Nitty Gritty
    What these guys value most is someone who can deeply connect with a use case in order to empathize with its users, understand their needs and point of view, and then translate that into product improvements. Lead with your successes doing this and you will move straight to the front of the class.

    Net-Net
    This company is doing so much that’s right. This is a chance to be part of their success as they go about transforming a new and virtually untapped market for their products in the US.

The right Hired Gun for this very choice gig has a combination of digital media sensibility and e–commerce smarts, as well as the ability to sweat the details while seeing the big picture.

    Nitty Gritty
    As Senior Product Manager, your mission will be to deliver premium audio content that sparks learning through literate entertainment. You will drive roadmaps for the web and mobile and contribute to the company’s broader vision for serving the customer. You’ll have ownership and accountability in spades.

You’ll identify and resolve strategic issues that may impair the organization’s ability to meet its strategic, financial, and technical goals. You’ll make data-driven decisions, but you will be called upon to make the final call even if the data isn’t there.

    Candidate Profile
    You’re a seasoned Senior Product Manager who knows the e-commerce space, especially when it comes to streaming media. You’re a proactive problem solver who doesn’t wait for the execs to point you toward an issue. Rather, you see a problem and solve it. Permission is great, but you’d rather ask forgiveness.

    You’re at ease with developers, user experience with designers, product marketers, and executive leadership. You’ve got a demonstrated track record of partnering with cross-functional teams to achieve business results despite differing goals.

    You understand the relevant apps and platforms for e-commerce and streaming digital media. You know the major players in the space and have a POV on who’s doing it right, who’s missing the boat, and where the next big opportunity lies.

    Inside Skinny
    A go get ‘em mentality is an absolute must for this role. This company is globally recognized as a ceaseless innovator, and that doesn’t happen by taking a wait-and-see attitude. If you’ve got laurels, don’t rest on ‘em.

    Net-Net

    The Hired Guns: UX/UI Designer

    (New York, NY) One of the largest players in global media is aggressively expanding their US operation, and they need an extremely well-rounded and talented UX Designer to help them continue to grow the ways in which their content is created and read.

    Nitty Gritty
    The recently installed Director of Product here is anxious to increase our client’s offerings, and that’s where you’ll come in. Working with the in-house team of product managers, a UX/UI lead, a development lead, and customer service/account management specialists, you’ll be creating some pretty amazing mobile apps as well as web-based products, primarily for lifestyle and pop-culture verticals. Cross-platform redesigns as well as working on smaller but still-important interactive fixes will all be part of a day’s work here.

    We’ll be honest, this role needs to thread the needle a bit: strong visual skills and a grasp of Adobe CC are very important, but it’s equally important that you’re able to wrangle a wireframe, whether it’s with OmniGraffle or Balsamiq. And being able to roll up your sleeves and get ‘er done will serve you well—this is a place where being able to do is just as important as being able to plan and command.

    Success here will be all about showing that you can manage your team effectively, and also that you’re more than ready to take on more responsibilities once you’ve been proven. Because the way things are going, that growth will be right around the corner.

    Candidate Profile
    You’re an experienced mid-level or earlier designer with strong natural talent and well as deep experience in UX and UI, e-commerce, platform/software design, and working with developers. You’re really good at keeping good design and usability in mind at all times; you know that design can make or break engagement. You were an early believer in “mobile first,” and you know what it takes to make sure that both mobile and web products succeed.

    You’re also an extremely good communicator who can work with executives and department heads as smoothly as you can with developers and other design/UX pros. Being a good communicator’s key, you know? And because this company doesn’t make a move without quality data, be sure that you know how to use findings from real-life results to plan next steps.

    Experience working in an Agile environment is also important to this role, as is being able to work cross-functionally with development, business, and design.
    (And we don’t want to jinx things, but if you have some knowledge of front-end HTML and/or CSS and JavaScript, that would be amazing.)

    Inside Skinny
    Our client might be open to a freelance-to-FT setup, so don’t be shy if you’re not ready for full-time at the moment.

    Net-Net
    This company’s doing lots of really interesting things in its space—this is a great opportunity to fill out your CV with some really amazing product.

    Company confidential: Senior Director, Product Design

    (New York, NY) Our client, a household name that in the past couple years has been revolutionizing the world of digital and streaming radio and music, is after a Senior Director of Product Design to ensure that it keeps innovating like crazy, while also holding it to its commitment to making products that are as unputdownable and fun to use as they can be.

    Nitty Gritty
    As the Senior Director, you will report to the Senior Vice-President of Design and be heading a department of UX and UI designers and will also work with a cross-functional team of Product Managers, Engineering, and Customer Support. Your utmost goal will be to ensure that the customer experience across all current and future streaming products is coherent, consistent, slick, and simply outstanding.

    Knowing all about the possibilities and limitations of mobile is essential, but so is a nuanced knowledge of current design trends and a passion for the next generation of items, including the Apple Watch, as well as items designed for the smart home and for the car.

    Experience with integrating and adapting a consistent look and UX across multiple apps and other products is also going to be key to getting this role. Our client’s list of touchpoints is basically impossible to match–from car dashboards to laptops to tablets to mobile phones to Roku and other streaming devices to wearables and beyond.

    Profile
    You’re a visionary Product Designer with a passion for the world of UX and UI. You’ve headed up the design team for at least several very high-profile, customer-facing products in your career so far, and you’re able to clearly explain what factors in their design helped make them a success.

    In other words, you’re the kind of designer who can define, validate, and defend your vision with the best of them. You know what makes the products you touch better than the competition’s, and you can clearly articulate their benefits to other stakeholders.

    You understand all the broad trends in design, but you’re also able to transcend those when necessary, using your own insights as well as customer data and analytics.

    You’re able to crank out prototypes with the best of them, and you also know how to conduct consumer research to get at the rich data that’s sometimes required to make a decision. And you still like to occasionally do your own design work when you can.

    Inside Skinny
    We’ve spent a little time looking at this company’s list of innovations, and the number of cool and genuinely useful tools and projects they’ve completed is really impressive. If you’re ready to get with the band, then get your resume in front of us ASAP.

    Net-Net
    This is a major design role at a really strong brand that’s building products that consumers can’t seem to get enough of (seriously, it’s likely they’ll be at 100 million total users in a couple more years). It doesn’t get any better than that.
    All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law.

    Apply:

    25 Sep 2014

    Company confidential: Visual Designer

    (New York, NY) A major player in consumer entertainment and technology is seeking an amazing visual designer to join their R&D/skunk works department, which develops cutting-edge products for several years down the road. They’ve gotten used to winning awards for their very sexy and intuitive designs, and they’re dead set on keeping that streak going. They need a Visual Designer who can help lead the way. Do you have what it takes?

    Nitty Gritty
    This R&D department is pretty sweet: constant innovation is key. The future-forward products they make are a mix of projects done at HQ’s bequest, other sponsored products, and shoot-the-moon concepts. All of them are centered around ideas for smart, “Internet of Things” home products—think Nest or Quirky, but in a consistent ecosystem/user interface.

    To get this gig, a great inherent visual sense is essential, though being able to back up your decisions based on UX findings and other data is a close second. You’ll be working with the Engineering and Product teams as you go about creating a crisp, clean, modern look for the products, whether for mobile, the web, or for other interfaces.

    Although you may have more experience with one platform or device than the others, you have a good sense of the broad trends in user-centered, intuitive design, and you pride yourself on always being able to stay a little ahead of those trends yourself.

    Because this is a small team, you’ll need to be able to move quickly and help finish projects that are already in progress, such as experience and visual designs, or UX guides.

    Profile
    Our client wants a designer with fresh and clean visual designs, someone who’s anxious to grow as part of a tight-knit team, and who has a portfolio that reveals clear development, through lines, and rock-solid results.

    An eye for innovation and graceful design is what’s going to get you the nod here. Also very valuable: good basic exposure to a variety of design needs and solutions—a mix of agency/tech/startup experience, experience working with large-scale site builds and mobile apps, and working with developers and UX specialists to bring a design to completion.

    Inside Skinny
    This company is quietly becoming the place to be if you’re a digital innovator. The team here is filling up with some of the best minds in digital products, and they’re a discerning bunch. To get the golden ticket, you’ll need to show us a stellar portfolio filled with products that are as functional as they are beautiful.

    Net-Net
    This is a rare chance to design products that will be in literally millions of homes—don’t let it pass you by.

    All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law.

For the past 8 years, we've focused our time and energy continuously improving the time tracking, invoicing and reporting experience of Harvest. This year, we've added a way for our customers' to plan their future time with Forecast.

    Harvest began as a team of 3 and today we're a group of 35, smart, respectful and interesting people. We're based in New York City, but we work from all over the world – from Lithuania to British Columbia with many, many points in between. Though we are expanding our team, we remain a small and focused company. Harvest is self-funded, profitable and has become an integral tool for tens of thousands of customers in over 150 countries.

    About You

    You have written a lot of JavaScript (and maybe some CoffeeScript) and your teammates look to you for expertise and examples of best practices.
    You enjoy learning about new things.

    Though JavaScript excites you, you're not a one trick pony. You've got experience with other languages and aren't afraid to pitch in when the task calls for it.

    You can break a project down into stages and execute with input from teammates rather than oversight from managers.

    You take responsibility for the quality of your code. You write tests because you know it will make your code better.

    In addition to writing code, you are very good at reading it. You are able to dig into unfamiliar codebases in order to understand a bug and solve a problem.

    You are an excellent communicator — you write clearly and you actively cooperate with your teammates, whether they be local or remote. You take feedback graciously and you help your fellow developers improve when you review their code.

    Your location allows you at least four hours of overlap with a 9am-5pm US/Eastern workday.

    • Have experience in presenting work to clients for feedback, but also know when to gently push back and defend your work.
    • Have flexibility to work both with and without strong client brand guidelines, full or templated wireframes, and with front-end developers to bring designs to life.
    • Be positive and enthusiastic!
     Requirements
    • 5+ years experience as UI designer 
    • Impressive visual portfolio, with a demonstrated focus on mobile application design

    (Edinburgh, Scotland) FreeAgent is a company born out of the frustration that accounting is just too damn hard for freelancers and small businesses. We make products to empower people with the knowledge and means to make that easier, and let them do things their way.

You'll need to be comfortable having your work critiqued, and collaborating closely with fellow designers and engineers. You should champion your work and be ready to fight your corner, but with an awareness of what's best for the people who use it.

    We'll encourage you to be brave, take risks and fail without fear, because we believe in the value of the journey and in learning by making. We value complexity, but know it has to be communicated in meaningful ways. You'll be encouraged to showcase and speak about your work with the team every fortnight, and get the chance to attend events that'll help develop your thinking. While we're talking about perks, you can expect:

    • Top-of-the-line Apple kit
    • Herman Miller desk and Aeron chair
    • The finest Scottish ale, delivered weekly
    • Free catered lunches every Friday

    The DSD has responsibility for managing, mentoring and the professional growth of the agency Interactive team.

    • Codify and publish formal frameworks and methodologies for approaching digital assignments within the firm. 
    • Play an active role in new client acquisition and new business presentations. 
    • Provide methodological support, coaching, professional development and training to team members. Participate in evaluating the digital IQ of potential associates. 
    • Foster a cooperative, accountable and success-oriented culture within the agency, with the goal of maximizing employee morale and productivity.  
    • Manage vendors and business partners, handling contract negotiations and ongoing maintenance to ensure the best interests of the company are met.  
    • Advocate for our clients; ensure high quality service at all client touch points to maintain trust and loyalty and confidence that our clients’ marketing couldn’t be in better hands.
        SKILLS, COMPETENCIES AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:  
    • 7+ years' experience in digital marketing at an advertising or Interactive agency. 
    • Team player with the confidence and integrity to earn client and internal team confidence quickly. 
    • Demonstrated success as a manager and leader of high-performing teams.  
    • Persuasive and engaging oral and written communicator.

    About Us:
    Scribd is building the world's online library. We're already profitable and one of the largest sites on the web, with a global user base of over 80 million. But our journey is only 1% finished. 

    We are still a very small team iterating rapidly, and we're looking for excellent engineering minds to take us to the next level. 

    Scribd's book subscription service (think "Netflix for books") gives readers unlimited access to over 400,000 books from over 900 publishers for a low monthly fee.

    The platform engineering role is the core role building the user-facing Scribd product. As a platform engineer, you'll spend most of your time building out our new features as web functionality and mobile APIs.

    This is a multi-functional role and a great opportunity to learn new tools and technologies. On any given day, you could be working on extending the Scribd data model, improving the algorithms for the Scribd search engine, or integrating with new third party APIs. In this role, you'll work closely with front-end teams on web, iOS, and Android to bring your features to completion.

    We'll be adding a ton of exciting new features to the Scribd app in the next year, and we need your help to accomplish everything we're dreaming of. You'll have the opportunity to work on all aspects of our product, completing features end to end.

    A few examples of projects we completed this year:
    * A distributed, scaling, caching image server written in Go that processes millions of images a day
    * A fuzzy matching text filter that can instantly detect two similar, but not identical, passages of text out of a database of all the books in the world
    * An automated classification system for automatically optimizing across numerous machine learning algorithms, written in Python
    * A completely JavaScript eBook reader that can compute the layout of every word in a 1,000 page book in less than a second

    Our Stack:
    At Scribd you'll have the opportunity to work across a suite of languages and tools because there are so many features we're working on. We are always open to whatever's best to get the job done, and if you're not experienced with all these tools don't fret...you can learn them here.

    Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, jQuery, and Backbone, Coffeescript, Python, Java, Go, MySQL, Solr and ElasticSearch, Scala, Twitter's "Scalding" framework: Scala on Mapreduce, Hive, Hadoop, Hbase, Android and OS/Objective C, Impala, Jenkins + Multijob, Nginx, Redis, Sphinx

    Our Ideal Candidate Has:
    * At least 2 years of software engineering experience working in any modern language. Our site is mostly built on Rails, but we use a bit of everything!

    * Experience with automation and / or cloud orchestration tools like Chef, Puppet or (bonus points) Ansible. 
    * Strong understanding and familiarity of the fundamentals of UNIX systems administration. 
    * Experience working alongside multiple Agile development teams.

    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.
