Take feature wireframes and sketches from the conceptual stage through to production.
Refine complex tasks and requirements into elegant, clear designs.
Create rapid prototypes and test them with real people.

Proven ability to create and execute visual and interactive concepts
Passionate about interface and experience design.

You can set your ego aside.
Life at Cinchcast:
You will be working with a small product team (3 people), reporting to the VP of Product, so you have a chance to make a big impact. Our design process is highly collaborative and iterative. We start in the studio with sketches on paper and white board, sketch directions & notes over them, then move to HTML prototypes. We believe in working with the medium rather than starting in Photoshop even though the end product looks slick.
Our office is located on the island of Manhattan. You've heard of it perhaps? We think New York beats out any perk the valley can offer. The team is a small group of startup veterans. We've traded in the razor scooters and beer pong to focus on building totally awesome stuff. We treat people like adults so there's no dress code or time clock so you can let your freak flag fly if you can deliver the goods.
