The Opportunity

The Chase
US: Superfantastic Berkeley, CA team within a superfantastic Scandinavian-American design agency.
YOU: Interaction designer with  5+ years designing digital interfaces and experience leading design projects for world class brands.
Design fundamentals (image, type, color) are part of your vocabulary, and Adobe Creative Suite, an extension of your being.  You are excited about your job and are enthusiastic about joining a team and learning a lot, very quickly. In the wise words of our principal designer, “High ambition; small ego.” Other people might describe you as a positive, grounded and open-minded individual, a galvanizing force for good, as well as a truly superlative designer.

SKILLS REQUIRED:
• Plan, prioritize, coordinate, and conduct user requirements analysis, task analysis, conceptual modeling, information architecture design, interaction design, and usability testing.
• Design and specify user interfaces and information architecture using participatory and iterative design techniques, including observational studies, customer interviews, usability testing, and other forms of requirements discovery.
• Produce user requirements specifications, personas, storyboards, scenarios, flowcharts, design prototypes, and design specifications.
• Effectively communicate research findings, conceptual ideas, detailed design, and design rationale both verbally and visually.
• Manage the design process, drive decisions, track issues, and assist in estimating resource needs and schedules.
• Work closely with development teams to ensure that design specifications are implemented.
• Participate as a contributor to an interdisciplinary team that includes other designers, project management, business and brand strategists, and hardware and software developers.

BONUS:
• Visual design experience
• User experience knowledge
• Motion graphics experience (prototyping interfaces and animations)
• Design research experience
• Print and packaging knowledge

We are urgently looking to grow our team in the coming months. In other words: this is a real position that needs filling now!

The Colorful Language
Are you a digital design phenom—one who enjoys propelling like-minded teammates toward greatness? Do you experience the warm rush of endorphins building apps that come to life through design, visual details and animation. Are you looking to flex your creative muscle beyond one project? While working with generous and creative people of different backgrounds and interests?

We, Montaag, are looking to add a bright, digital designer to our Berkeley team.

Most immediately, you’d be working at the cutting edge of visual design, helping drive (hint, hint) the future of an industry that is in the midst of a complete paradigm shift.
We maintain a friendly, supportive, open atmosphere that encourages creativity, thoughtfullness, collaboration and growth as designers, and as people. In our studio, everyone contributes; no-one is a wallflower.

Some examples of projects you’ll be getting your hands on as part of our team:
·    Mobility interfaces
·    Interfaces for consumer electronics
·    Websites and mobile apps
·    Design Research
