Attention Designers! GroupMe is Hiring!

We are a small, passionate team of dedicated people working on a product that we love. We spend our days in a sunlight-filled loft near Union Square in Manhattan. At night, we sing karaoke sometimes. Basically, we love our jobs, and we have a lot of fun doing them.
We are looking for someone with ambition, confidence, bold opinions, and talent, whose primary responsibilities will involve collaborating with our designers and engineers in order to flesh out product ideas from early wireframes and sketches to pixel-perfect final designs.
In addition, responsibilities will include supporting other departments in all design functions: presentations, spreadsheets, marketing materials, whatever. You should feel comfortable working on multiple projects simultaneously under tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment.
Applicants should have an online portfolio that includes work that is beautiful and usable, demonstrating a love for tight detailing and impeccable typography. Ideally, it should show off your work in a range of platforms (web, mobile, tablets, print) and applications (sites, apps, branding, marketing). Any coding experience would be a major plus, as well as any motion graphics, video editing, or illustration skills.
We can’t wait to see what you have to show us!Send your work to kevin@groupme.com
