Assembla is looking for a designer that can build and improve user interfaces for Assembla.com and other applications. The goal is to deliver complete workflows with simple and beautiful user interfaces. We will start with drawings and mockups, then we will make clear and readable HTML
mockups, and then work directly in the application templates. The successful candidate will be a UI designer who can install our Rails development environment, and work with our programmers in an incremental development process.
We turn your ideas and presentations into released product quickly. You can work at home, from an island in the Pacific (one of our team leaders moved to Hawaii) or from any other location. You will be working with a talented group of developers who are working on high-traffic applications with hundreds of thousands of users. Help to build our emerging design and product marketing team. Assembla is a startup company with a unbroken record of profitable, self-funded growth. Learn more about Assembla at http://about.assembla.com/jobs.html
