Lead Designer (UI/UX/Visual)

at Yapp in New York, NY   —   Jul 04, 2014   |  
Overview
Yapp is looking for an exceptional designer to lead the UX/UI and visual direction for the company and take our product to the next level. Design is the cornerstone of Yapp’s vision so you will play a pivotal role in the company’s evolution. As a member of the founding team, you will have the opportunity to shape the product vision of a ground breaking new service.

Yapp is democratizing mobile technology so that every person on the planet can create his or her own mobile app. Yes, that’s a big vision – and we are just at the beginning. We launched our first product in private beta at the beginning of April and have received a phenomenal reception from users, media, and investors. Read about it here: http://press.yapp.us

If you are a hungry, innovative designer willing to take risks and venture into the unknown, Yapp is your utopia. (Conversely, if you prefer iterating on what exists out there today, you should probably click on another URL).
