JOB: Interaction/Experience Designer - Menlo Park, CA - Slivercast - Full time Startup
24 Oct 2007 - 6:51pm
Build a new identity regularly. Guide the feel & vision of an entire wave of
new communities. Help create what will be one of the most fundamental new
media companies for the coming years.
We're a brand new startup focused on building a new model for entertainment,
community, and data. We're trying to take on how people entertain themselves
(on and offline) and improve it 100x. Sound ambitious? It is, but we have a
plan for how we're going to start small and start picking away, day by day.
By the way, that plan involves working with some of the coolest hobbies
known to humankind, from Day 1.
We need someone to help tie together our product with a satisfying design &
layout. We'll not only be creating an identity for our central presence, but
also for various sub-areas for passionate communities. Your creativity and
innovation are going to be tested to the limits. We are moving quickly, and
expect everyone on the team to do the same. We're very small, and you'll
have to take responsibility not only for designing your creations but
bringing them to life as well.
We're currently working out of Menlo Park, CA, with plans to relocate in the
future based on team interest. We provide excellent health coverage and
other benefits out of the gate. We believe in hiring a small number of the
best people, and providing them with very competitive pay & equity.
At least take the time to learn more. Contact Ryan at slivercastjobs.com.
