Foraker Labs is looking for heroes to rid the world of ugly and hard-to-use software.

You:
are a creative juggernaut. “Good enough” simply isn’t good enough for you. You don't just work well with your team members, you challenge them to be better. You understand that designing rich interactions is not just about static screens. Objects in your home may be aligned to a grid...

- Excellent communication skills, and the poise to candidly, graciously, and intelligently present designs to your team and our clients.
- Proven leadership skills and an interest in growing Foraker’s creative department, with the ability to mentor junior designers.

Nice to have:
- HTML/CSS skills and a familiarity with modern CSS frameworks
- Comfort with running applications locally and “designing in the browser”
- Experience with Git
- An interest in iOS and designing for mobile devices

What you’ll get:
- You’ll get to work with a team of really smart, passionate people who build custom web and iOS applications for a diverse set of industries and clients.
- Relaxed, dog-friendly office in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
- Great work-life balance.
- Competitive base salary depending on experience.
- Health, dental, and vision insurance. 401k with company match.
- 100% of expenses paid to speak at conferences.
