MUST HAVE SKILLS...

- PROTOTYPING
Able to build rapid prototypes (regardless of technology, i.e. Paper,
HTML/CSS…) ideally you can take a design from sketches to markup.

- MARKUP AND STYLE
Capable and comfortable implementing designs with HTML/CSS.

- DESIGN TASTE
Has great taste in design. Cite sources of inspiration or influence:
i.e. Books, blogs, etc…

- SEO FUNDAMENTALS
Understand the essentials of SEO, “good content + good markup +
linking strategy = good SEO.”

- UNAFRAID OF CODE
Understand how back-end technology works. The point is, you can’t be
scared to work around and within PHP.

PREFERRED SKILLS...

- UX DESIGN AND RESEARCH
Solid skills in experience design. You can expect to sketch
interfaces and user flows. Would be great if you have experience with
research as well.

- MANAGE AND MEASURE UX
Can manage and measure the success of design. You should have
experience defending your design choices with business and user
goals.

- EXPERIENCED WITH NON-DESIGNERS
Has worked directly with Business folks, Engineers, and Designers
(i.e. You should be comfortable working with designers and
non-designers alike). We’re looking for a team player, not someone
who only works in heroic issolation. This isn’t a “toss it over the
fence” position.

- ARTICULATE DESIGN REQUIREMENTS
Can identify problems and possible solutions based on the concepts
mentioned in meetings.

- VISUAL DESIGN
Capable of visually designing interfaces (read: graphic design).

- SEM EXPERIENCE
Has worked with a company whose source of new customers are derived
from SEO and SEM.

- START-UP EXPERIENCE
Has worked at a start-up company.

- DIVERSE EMPLOYMENT BACKGROUND
You’ve probably worked as a freelancer, but you’ve also held
full-time jobs (e.g. paid non-hourly, which breeds a different kind
of work ethic than a part-time/freelance only background).

- DRUPAL AND JQUERY
You’ve worked with Drupal and jQuery. That’s what we use.
