Job Description
Meetup 1.0 was designed by Jason Fried and the team at 37signals (back when they were a design shop). Then we lost our way. We grew to over 13M members, but design took a backseat as the product evolved.

Today design is top priority at Meetup and we are growing faster than ever. We are committed to reinventing ourselves in bold and disciplined ways - with our design team helping lead the charge. We are seeking creative Product Designers who have a passion for crafting simple, well-designed and fun user experiences that go beyond traditional web-based application and site design.  You will report to the Director of Product and will work closely with teams to build new experiences and ensure that existing experiences are consistent and of high quality. 
 
You're a problem solver and your designs reflect your ability to be an strong advocate for end users.  You are excited by the opportunity to contribute to building the next generation of online experiences that will help millions of people discover, spark and get involved in local, real-world communities. 
 
The ideal candidate has:
  • Strong portfolio showcasing skills in core design and UX principles
  • 1-3 years experience working in a design capacity at a consumer-facing web company (social networking and fast-paced, start-up environment preferred)
  • Passion for designing social web experiences that delight and engage end users
  • Solid understanding of layout, typography, color and other design principles
  • Holistic approach to web design that takes user flows, goals and page states into account
  • Strong attention to detail and a sense of pride and ownership over the quality of the product
  • Proficiency in Illustrator, Fireworks and Photoshop and an ability to quickly develop and iterate designs based on feedback and goals
  • Knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript with an ability to prototype using these technologies a strong plus

Our team is smart, ambitious, supportive, and above all - we are excited by what we do. While meeting regular deadlines and being focused on quick, quality completion of projects, the environment is relaxed and fun.
 
Every member of the Meetup Team is expected to: be an Innovator; be a Collaborator; be a Champion for their ideas; be an Expert; have High Standards; be dedicated to the power of self-organized groups and our mission of A Meetup Everywhere About Most Everything ("MEME"); and most importantly, Get Stuff Done That Makes a Difference!
