software with high public value. Our work is shaping a more democratic and transparent
society.

Beautiful West Village office full of smart, friendly people. Real work-life balance. An agile environment, and projects that really need to scale. We welcome creativity.

Most importantly, we offer a challenge: to build tools that have the potential to change the
status quo.


-- Qualifications --

- Portfolio that highlights your strong design sense.
- Bulletproof toolbox, including (X)HTML, CSS, Javascript, design suite.
- Fluid communication skills, and the ability to work directly with clients.
- Success taking a project from idea to prototype to go-live.
- Passion for semantic markup, web standards, usability, and work that matters.
- Self-motivated and organized.
- Knowledge of micro-formats and other emerging standards, a big plus.
