Web Simulation Designer

Forio Online Simulations is looking for an experienced Web Designer to join our growing, fast-moving team.

We are the leader in the field of online business simulation games. We founded our small software company in 2001 based on a passion for our field of business simulations and a belief that we could build a company that would be fun to work at while providing real value to our customers. This is a full time on-site position based out of our downtown San Francisco office.

The ideal candidate for this position would have an aptitude for design and a portfolio to showcase it. Here, at Forio, you will be a part of the client requirements gathering process and be in charge of designing mockups which you will then convert into standards compliant HTML/CSS. Most of our simulations are data-driven so any experience with data visualization would be a big plus.

You’ll have a chance to work with exciting new CSS3 and HTML5 elements for iPad compatibility, while at the same time ensuring our older IE7 browsers degrade gracefully. You should be experienced in programming with Object-Oriented Javascript to augment the user-experience but should balk at the idea of using Javascript for layout.

We follow an agile development process and most of our projects have a 6 month development cycle with 3 week iterations. We believe in continual learning, mentoring, and education for ourselves and our customers. With every client there are a new set of experiences. There is plenty of opportunity to learn new things.

We’re currently in the process of revamping some of our older(2005) simulations and you will have the opportunity to drive this process and set the benchmarks for CSS and design for the entire company going forward. You will have freedom to try out different technologies to make this process smoother and be able to fix what you think needs fixing. We offer competitive pay and benefits.

How to apply

Send in your resume along with a link to your portfolio to along with a brief cover letter highlighting any recent programming projects (in any language) that you're proud of.
