Noomii is a Vancouver-based web startup in need of a full-time UE/web designer who is interested in making our site look great and work with intuitive ease.
At the minimum, you should be well versed in modern markup and design techniques. You understand the importance of markup validity and keep style and content separate. You should have an established portfolio of web-based work showcasing your visual design and technical layout skills. You have experience dealing with and resolving cross browser CSS issues (*though this is a bit easier at noomii since we’ve dropped support for IE6).
In addition to making things look good, you should be a "UE" nerd. You should be keenly considerate of how every detail in your design affects navigation and usage. You will create mock-ups and paper-based designs for new features, convert mock-ups into working HTML files and sit in on live user-testing for feedback on our product.
Above all the skills necessary to fulfill this job, you are passionate and excited about the emergence of web-based applications and the advancement of UI principles. You focus on the details and get things done right.
This position is being offered as a short-term contract and if you prove to be the the right fit, we want to hire you full-time with additional benefits and potential stock options.
You must work in our Vancouver office. Telecommuting is not an option. Do not contact us if you do not live in (or are not willing to relocate to) the Vancouver area.
