Description:

Foraker Labs is looking to rid the world of ugly and hard-to-use software. If “good enough” simply isn’t good enough and you thrive in a team environment, keep reading. We are looking for “A players” who will make everyone around them better by constantly challenging their colleagues with excellent work and high expectations.

Successful candidates will have:

- A compelling portfolio of complex web and iOS applications designed in a way that makes the end-user feel smart and happy.
- The ability to take complex concepts and make them beautiful, clean, and simple.
- Proficiency in core design methods like sketching, storyboarding, diagramming, and prototyping.
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to passionately, candidly, graciously, and intelligently present designs to your team and our clients.
- Proven leadership skills and interest in growing Foraker’s creative department, with the ability to mentor interns and junior designers.
- A curiosity and desire to understand what makes people tick and how to build modern interfaces using the latest tools and guidelines.
- Apple’s HIG should be something you are intimately familiar with and the pros and cons of rich, client-side web interfaces is something you should be able to speak to.
- An understanding that interfaces are often not just static screens and that interaction and animation play a role (but not always).

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

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.

- Competitive base salary depending on experience.
- Health, dental, and vision insurance. 401k with company match.

- Great coffee, snacks, unlimited soft drinks, and office kegerator.
- Occasional hackfests open to the entire Boulder / Denver tech community.
- Monthly company outings.
- And, we will remember to celebrate your birthday.
