Wondermill Webworks looking for a part-time, contract, work-from-wherever designer who’s passionate about usability and information architecture. We’re a small team, around for many years (started in 1998) and we have real customers paying real dollars to use our products, and it’s all very… nice.
But we want more.
When people have created an account with one of our products, they should shed a tear because the experience is over. They should write ballads and march from town to town reading them to anyone who’ll listen. They should hang signs from highway overpasses proclaiming our good name, hold 3-day block parties and call up radio stations to dedicate cheesy songs.
They should obsess.
Most of all, they should tell their friends about us. And if those
friends don’t sign up for our services they should go find new friends, because who needs unsupportive friends?
And that’s where you come in.
Who are you?
- You’re a passionate user advocate. It pisses you off when someone stubs their toe on bad design, especially if they blame themselves.
- You believe usability isn’t a distraction from “real business”, but contributes directly to the bottom line. Easy-to-use means happier customers who stick around longer and spend more.
- You have experience with building applications where people are trying to get something done rather than browsing a website.
- You’re a serious go-getter. When there’s nothing on your plate to do, you look for something to improve. You would say things like, “Hey guys, check this out, I think it’ll beat the signup box we’re using now.”
- This one’s tricky. Deep down, you’re a perfectionist. You want
everything just so. But when the time comes, you can set that aside and design with duct tape so we can quickly test an idea and see if it’s worth more effort.
- Bonus points: You write clear, friendly copy.
