Interaction Designer at Wikia, Inc. in San Francisco, CA
You love the idea of helping to create new communities where people all over the world can share their passion for everything from One Direction to Halo 4.
You’re a design-centric thinker, an evangelist of user centered design and are comfortable communicating (and debating!) your design ideas to a team. You have a strong design aesthetic yet adeptly tread the fine line between fun and functional.
Wikia is looking for a dynamic Interaction Designer to join our team. Wikia is the definitive place for people to collaborate and share their passion on the Web. Using our platform, anyone can form new communities around any subject they love, or participate in over 200,000 existing communities by reading or contributing new content. And we are growing fast! With more than five million pages of rich content, Wikia’s communities are the most authoritative information about any topic on the Internet. Launched in 2004 by co-founders Jimmy Wales (of Wikipedia fame) and Angela Beesley, Wikia is a Top 50 Internet site according to Quantcast.
You’ll have a blast creating fun and engaging user experiences using your strong skills in both interaction design and visual design. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to present and sell your ideas for the site to your colleagues and the company. Along the way, your enthusiasm will help drive and inspire the team.
