Front End (UI/UX) Designer

Help us turn our highly functional, yet sometimes boring, business application into a work of art!

The ideal candidate will have a background in creative arts, know a little about marketing, and yet still know how to talk the engineering talk well enough to interact constructively with engineering people.

This is not a technical position, but you should know your way around engineering jargon and be able to prototype basic interactions in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you have ambitions of honing your JavaScript skills or exploring your marketing ideas in a coached, yet independently-driven environment, this position is perfect for you.

Responsibilities

  • Create eye catching mockups representing product (web application) designs and interfaces across a wide variety of target devices.
  • Dicing and splicing in Photoshop and Illustrator as needed to provide engineering with all of the graphical assets they need. Under aggressive deadlines, of course.
  • Defining, creating, and enforcing guidelines for user interface, branding, and messaging consistency.
  • Produce visual content as needed for marketing efforts, e.g., email newsletters, trade show collateral, etc.

Experience

  • Required: Web and application visual design. Please provide portfolio examples.
  • Required: Knowledge and understanding of HTML/CSS/JavaScript and how visual compositions translate to code.
  • Attention to detail and pixel perfection
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Suite and other design tools
  • Ability to collaborate across teams and deliver at a rapid pace
  • Desirable: A pragmatic penchant for marketing.
  • Desirable: Ability to write clean copy -- both for marketing purposes and that of a technical nature.

Document Creation Specialist

This role entails creating Microsoft Word templates for our clients, who are legal professionals. No authoring or other copywriting is required, but it is necessary to understand what you are reading and translate loose descriptive terms (e.g., "insurance carrier") into specific data-driven "codes" generated by our software (e.g., "CASEFILE:carrier.name"). 

Other responsibilities include locating legal forms online (usually PDFs provided by government agencies) and mapping fields to those same data-driven codes.

Data entry, usually of raw contact information, also occasionally comes up, so familiarity with the typical spellings of common American names and surnames is helpful.

We largely consider this an internship position, so if you're still in school or a recent graduate, flaunt it. See Other Info, below.

Responsibilities

  • Formatting and Templating of client documents in Microsoft Word 2007 or later. 
  • Formatting and Templating of court-provided forms using custom Merus tools.
  • Occassional data entry.
  • Occasional client interaction to retrieve, verify, and publish client documents.

Experience

  • User-level proficiency with Windows.
  • Experience authoring and formatting professional documents. Cover letters count. (Hint, hint)
  • Working knowledge of Microsoft Word 2007 or later. Brush up on "merging" and "form letters" before your interview.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Meticulous and fastidious attention to detail.
  • Nice to have: Some formal experience with some form of desktop publishing. 
  • Nice to have: Familiarity with the legal industry and/or legal professionals.
