We're looking for a user-focused user interface designer who isn't afraid of tackling a diverse set of challenges.

We're primarily focused on the web, but will have other design challenges including mobile, brand identity, and the occasional print job.

This is a full-time, remote, paid position on a small team. You should be friendly and thoughtful, capable of being productive without company-mandated work hours, and excel at communicating with teammates.

We slightly prefer candidates in American time zones.
