Want to be one of the first 20 employees in a company already nationally
praised for innovation by the Wall Street Journal, Daily Candy, CNN, Time
and Joel on Software. TripIt was founded by 2nd generation start-up leaders
who know how the game is played and, more importantly, how it’s won. This is
an opportunity to be on the ground floor of a well-funded, privately-held
company that values creative, collaborative thinking and fast execution.

Description
Our team has built a service unlike any that have come before it in the
online travel space. Now it’s time for TripIt to grow to the next level, and
to do that we need you. You are the type of designer that is driven by the
challenge of solving unique UI problems in a compressed timeframe while
balancing the needs of the business and the constraints of the medium. You
will report directly to the Principal Designer and will work alongside
TripIt’s product managers and engineers.

Responsibilities
The Visual Designer will help design the entire user experience — from web
pages, to emails, to mobile screens, to printed itineraries. You will be
responsible for providing visual design leadership for all components of the
TripIt service.

Your responsibilities will include:

- Leading visual design throughout the entire product lifecycle, from
initial explorations through final design deliverables such as screen
layouts, user interface elements, and prototypes
- Translating usability and field research findings into design
improvements
- Communicating design strategy and rationale to key stakeholders
- Collaborating with engineers to deliver polished final product
- Contributing to a culture of innovation and teamwork
- Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to create better experiences
for people using TripIt

Minimum Job Qualifications:

- Strong visual design skills and an attention to detail down to the
pixel
- Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Graphic Design, Digital Media Design
or related field, or equivalent experience
- At least five years experience as a key member of a UI team through the
product development cycle of several successfully launched web, mobile
and/or software applications (as opposed to layout and decorative design)
- Solid understanding of current web technologies (CSS, JavaScript,
iPhone apps)
- Strong communication skills
- Proven ability to work with cross-functional teams

Please include portfolio URLs with your resume and cover letter.
