Web Designer Extraordinaire
Does your current office resemble Initech*, or even worse, Aperture Science*? Then it is time for a change – declare your freedom and get a job where you’ll never have to fill out another TPS report and where the cake isn’t a lie.
We want you! Well, not all of you, but if you have wicked design skills and respectable coding skills, you should apply immediately. Join a fun-loving team (just watch this dance-off here: http://vimeo.com/14326746) that has some spiffy awards on the shelf like Best Place to Work 2010 from Houston Chronicle AND the Houston Business Journal and the 2009 AMA Marketer of the year. Plus, selling blinds and shades online is pretty exciting – at least the way we do it is.
What will you spend your day doing, you ask?
- Creating new, fresh user experiences (mockups), bringing them to life (code them out) and testing them.
- Brainstorming new ideas with the creative team to improve the usability of our site.
