Simplicity and UX is extremely important to our users, so if you frequently think, “This development platform/codebase/program could be so much simpler to use…” then you have the right mindset.
You will be joining a team that is making an important and growing impact, evidenced by recent coverage by The Atlantic, Website Magazine, and Visibility Magazine. You will be taking over as the core contributor to the previous code base, so you must be capable of making quick, critical, and solo assessments of legacy code. The entirety of the development process will be in your hands, so you should be comfortable managing every aspect from design to debugging after release.
Skills and Requirements
Technology and programming, and particularly user experience, should be your passion as well as your job. You must be excited to learn and compare new technologies to improve your craft and have a talent for selecting the right tool/technology for scalable and elegant end results. You should have a love for life-long learning and the ability, as Steve Jobs would say, to “think differently.”
You should be serious about writing elegant code to create elegant products, and you should have a dedication to UX that makes you shudder when you see poor design. Self-direction and a strong work ethic are musts, as well as a flexible attitude, creative problem-solving abilities, and a desire to work in a slightly-renegade small team which consists of a visionary founder, director of operations, support expert, and a corporate sales team.
