Ground floor opportunity with pioneering NYC Internet startup for world-class Web Designer and Graphic Designer.
This unique position has an extraordinary breadth of UI and design challenges and demands a superlative multi-talent with strong creative vision. We are seeking the right person to work closely with our CEO and contribute strongly to the creative vision of our products. The ideal individual would have a background including some of the following: UI and UX experience, RIA interface designs, 2D & 3D animations for games and virtual worlds, creating photo-real web environments and/or architectural renderings, and website design. While this position’s central role is to create a rich graphical user experience, we consider the ability to design, execute, and manage simple Flash/Flex and other webbased prototypes to be a strength.
Shindig is a NYC startup committed to unleashing the unrealized potential of video chat by allowing free flowing engagement of all participants in group chat. Current video chat ignores the fact that staring at the person you are talking to is not natural, and the feeling that they are doing the same back at you is highly discomforting. With our technology, we are creating revolutionary new types of web experiences revolving around large scale online events, gaming, social networks, distance learning, and other meaningful online activities. A sneak peak at our first game is at ShindigChess.com but it doesn’t begin to tell the story.
Our company founder and CEO, Steve Gottlieb, is a serial entrepreneur and longtime angel tech investor. His past career highlights include founding and running one of the largest independent music companies in the US, with 30 Gold, Platinum, and Multi-platinum releases to its credit. Our Head of Technology’s previous role was as a Director of Technology at MySpace.
