About SocialEngine

SocialEngine is a leading platform for building interactive online communities. Thousands of people use our software to power their own social websites, which millions of end-users interact with every day. Our 11-person team recently finished the TechStars Boulder accelerator program, and now we are building a new service that lets anyone create beautiful interest-based communities powered by social curation.

We are looking for an ambitious, artistic, and entrepreneurial designer; someone that is eager to help define our culture at this early stage, and be part of a team that is working on building something big.

Ability to work as a full-stack designer (from wire frame, site UX/UI elements, site graphics).
Killer portfolio that showcases a broad range of interactive and graphic design skills.
Ability to quickly produce multiple visual concepts and working interactive prototypes using basic HTML, CSS, or JavaScript.
Strong sense of color and typography to evoke emotion. A passion for minimalism and simple, smart, timeless design.
Comfortable with an accelerated, iterative design process that involves accepting and managing feedback and constructive criticism
Excellent verbal/writing skills, obsessive attention to detail.
Always ahead of the curve on the current and best UI and visual design practices and trends
