Full Time / Redwood City
Big Data? Yes. But more than that, at Equilar, we like to talk about Quality Data. And we're building our business on it.
Equilar is building out products with quality data to disrupt the executive networking market. Networking? Yes, but we're about a lot more than just building the “LinkedIn” for executives. We believe that better leaders make better companies, so we’re building a platform that strengthens organizations from the top. We’ve already built a successful business on that platform, establishing ourselves as a leader in corporate governance. Now, we’re expanding into executive networking - what we call our “startup within our startup” - and we are looking for innovative, creative, passionate, and entrepreneurial individuals to strengthen both teams.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Equilar is looking for a User Experience (UX) Designer who understands that the product is the experience. Someone who understands that enterprise and professional products are used by human beings and that success is a product that is loved for its ease and utility.
You will be comfortable discussing your designs and working with customers, engineers, and PMs to get to the best result. You will brainstorm, collaborate, conceptualize, visualize, and design. You will be there from start to finish. This position offers a high level of responsibility, visibility, and tons of room to grow.
We’re looking for someone with a degree in web design, HCI (Human Computer Interaction), or related field. Ideally you’ll have at least three years of experience under your belt, specifically in interface or web design. You’ll have a portfolio that will knock our socks off. Most importantly, you’ll show us your ability to produce great design work on a deadline, to the requirements, and for the target customer.
