Update: This is an old post. We now have a designer. :-)
Favstar.fm is looking for a designer to help with several mini-projects over the coming months. We’re aiming to retain someone for 15 hours a month for 4 months, with a high chance of extension.
You’ll collaborate on concepts, work on the wireframes, produce high fidelity prototypes in photoshop, and cut the designs into html and css. The projects will be small and discrete, with each one fitting into the time available for the month.
As well being able to create a nice looking visual design, you’ll have a good interaction design sense. You’ll be able to iterate quickly, have good initiative and self management skills, and a knack for problem solving.
Favstar’s website has both desktop and mobile web views, with most of the UI shared across both. You’ll understand the intricacies of designing for a touch-based mobile device, and will own an iPhone or Android phone.
We’re looking for reliability from someone who communicates well, and is used to working remotely over Skype and email. You can be based anywhere, but must be able to work in the Pacific timezone daytime hours.
If you’re interested, please email jobs@favstar, and include:
- A short self-introduction and tell us how you heard about this job.
- A link to your portfolio or sites you’ve worked on - tell us your favorites and why you enjoyed working on them.
- Your twitter username
- Your hourly rate and when you’d be able to start
- It’s a bonus if you have illustration or Ruby on Rails skills, but not a requirement.
