Causes.com is looking for a talented designer to create fun and elegant web experiences.
Founded in 2007, Causes is the world’s largest platform for activism and philanthropy. We’re among the top 100 most popular sites in the U.S. with over 140 million users, and yet we’re a team of only 25 people. Our office is located in downtown San Francisco and we offer all kinds of good times, great perks, and friendly dogs.
Despite our do-gooder mission, you won’t catch the lingering scent of patchouli in the hallway. Causes is a tech company focused on providing smart solutions to tough problems. Working in partnership with our world-class engineers, our Product and Design team craft interfaces and experiences that empower individuals to change the world.
This is a rare opportunity for a designer who wants to make a huge impact. The work you do here directly affects whether a village in Kenya can access clean water or whether schoolchildren in China have a roof over their head. There’s over 500,000 causes on our site, and you’ll help them achieve their goals.
We’re a small team, so you’ll have a lot of impact right away. You’re comfortable collaborating with other team members, and have a great eye for detail. The overall look and feel is important to you, but you know that that’s just one portion of the experience. You appreciate well-written copy. You’re not afraid to get out of the office and talk with real users. You feel compelled to use your design powers for good.
Ideal candidates will…
- Have 3+ years working on consumer-facing products or websites
- Enjoy working in an agile environment
- Consistently think about ways to use design to create great products
- Feel comfortable in multiple areas of design, from brainstorming to wireframing to producing finished designs
