Description

Red Ventures is on the hunt for an outstanding Sr. Web Designer to conceptualize, build and maintain websites and marketplaces for a variety of our high-profile partners.



Do you want to pioneer new technology, rack up impressive results and realize your potential? Keep reading. If you'd prefer to work with tired, samey concepts while the Internet continues to innovate around you, don’t apply. No offense. Boring just isn’t our style.



Apply now if:

You've got moxie.



•    You're ardent about new technology but still know when to use tables

•    You love to geek out with good design and stay current on the latest Photoshop and Illustrator techniques

•    You're competitive and confident enough to see your work split-tested across millions of visitors

•    You're not afraid to work with some of the most skilled designers out there

•    You're cool with developers, copywriters, business leaders and nerf gun bullets dropping by your desk daily



You're fast and flexible (a.k.a. the Chuck Norris of web design)



•    Your skillset is comprehensive, including HTML/CSS code and a keen visual eye

•    You're a problem-solver at heart, finding ways to express complex ideas through intuitive design

•    You turn out exceptional work in weeks, not months, and are able to jump in on a project at any point in its lifecycle

•    You thrive within a data-driven design culture and can quickly react to changes and new feature requirements driven by our user analytics

•    You're hip to the latest requirements for cross-browser compatibility and page optimization



You know your stuff.



•    You know how to create polished, functional websites that engage visitors and inspire them to act

•    You’re an expert at pushing pixels using the latest design software (no, we don’t mean Microsoft Paint)

•    You’re extremely familiar with HTML and HTML5, including use of new elements, attributes and features as well as semantic markup best practices

•    You're keen on responsive design, efficient CSS markup, and you know how to make CSS dance

•    You're confident with CSS3 and can leverage new features while supporting older browsers with graceful degradation

•    You know jQuery and aren’t afraid of getting your hands dirty when it comes to javascript

•    Your portfolio is robust, impressive and includes working samples

•    Your design accounts for the idiosyncrasies between Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE6 - IE9 (yeah, IE6 - not everyone’s as techy as we are)

•    Your Illustrator skills and Photoshop prowess are the envy of your designer friends

•    (Bonus points) Your background includes direct marketing or UX experience



You take your work - and your play - seriously.



Bored designers make boring websites.  We've got hundreds of online assets that attract millions of visitors for our partners - and that's serious business - but we're also serious about cultivating a work environment that’s as fun as it is challenging. We don't think success requires a sterile and cold corporate culture. In fact, we encourage just the opposite. Our culture is casual, fast-paced and often pretty ridiculous. A sense of humor isn't a plus, it's a must.



In addition to a one-of-a-kind culture, we've also got great perks at our headquarters, including a basketball court, a subsidized gourmet bistro and a yearly, all-expenses-paid company trip to the Caribbean.
