Overview
Patch Labs is building new ways to make life easier for you and your neighbors.

Responsibilities
About you
You’re smart, and make it happen
You love being part of a small team that solves big problems
You design with end users in mind (including those with very different wants and needs from your own).
You care more about ease and comfort than the perfect shade of gray.
You’re a pragmatist, informed by a purist approach but with an understanding of what it takes to ship and reach real users
You’re Agile where it makes sense, but always sensible, clever and hard-working
Experience
As a founding member of Patch Labs, you will work closely with a front-end engineer, platform engineer and product manager to create really useful, intuitive software. Specifically, you will:
Conceive, implement and refine intuitive user experiences
Create interaction models, user task flows, prototypes, screen designs and user interface assets
Visualize complex sets of data and interactions in ways that are easy to comprehend
Skills
Passion for building software that makes life easier
Empathy for users and a realistic, humble view of how software fits into their everyday lives
Strong proficiency in the latest design software (e.g. Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks)
Prototyping skills in HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript. Basic Rails skills are a plus.
Experience with practical ways to solicit and integrate user research and feedback before, during and after the development process
Stellar layout, color, and typography skills
Strong copy writing skills - words are just as important as other visual elements
5+ years designing highly usable, elegant interfaces
Degree in relevant field or equivalent work experience
Compensation
A driven, motivated, and talented team that believes in working hard and reaping the rewards
Laid-back office environment in the heart of SoHo
Competitive compensation and excellent benefits
