Wide Angle is a new startup based in Seattle. We are obsessed with helping people find, organize, and save their photos and videos from across the digital universe. We believe that technology should work for people, not the other way around, and that the words "fun" and "challenging" always go together. Together, we think we can go anywhere, and we want you to come with us. Wide Angle is backed by Denny Hill Capital and an amazing group of angel investors. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and we value diversity of all kinds.
Are you a UI Whisperer? Know how to find the droids they were looking for? Wide Angle seeks an Interaction Designer that dreams of a day when every UI is both unexpectedly fun and predictably useful. We are looking for someone who who gets in the weeds to make it easy for customers to find their way, and who knows that the success of the product hangs on whether they can or not. If you are a person who thinks constantly about how to reinvent the mundane, identifies with the phrase "move fast and break things", and can still "just make it work", then you will love working here. And we'd love to meet you.
