Interaction / User Interface Designer @ IndieGoGo

This message board is read-only.

A former member
Post #: 5
Hello all,

We're looking to hire a lead Designer at IndieGoGo. In particular, someone with skills in the "code" (HTML/CSS) paired with outstanding design sense and experience. This is an exciting opportunity as we continue to grow the team and product -- part of which will involve the upcoming LUXr program (Janice Fraser's lean user experience residency). See below for more details (or at: the job posting).

Please send me an email directly to learn more: eric [at]


Eric Schell
Founder and CTO, IndieGoGo



IndieGoGo is a rapidly growing organization based in San Francisco. Founded in 2008 as a global funding platform - our mission is to help anybody in the world raise more money from more people faster. We provide a technology based platform that enables anybody with an idea (creative, cause-related, or entrepreneurial) to create a funding campaign, offer perks to their contributors, and ultimately get their idea funded.

Founded on the principles of opportunity, transparency, and action - we believe that funding opportunities should not be dictated solely by private banks, wealthy individuals, or corporate institutions - but instead by the community. Over 25,000 projects from 170 countries have raised millions of dollars on IndieGoGo.


IndieGoGo is growing faster than we can type and we are looking for talented, driven, and entrepreneurial minded individuals to join us. One of the company's three founders leads the product team, which is currently about as lean as it gets. Over the next 6 months, however, we are looking to grow the team from 2 to 5 people.

We offer a competitive startup salary, as well as equity and a benefits package including health insurance. Not to mention a fantastic office location in the Inner Sunset that has dozens of choice lunch spots within a block, and Golden Gate Park within two blocks. (although we may be moving to a larger office elsewhere in SF soon!)

WHO WE NEED: Interaction / User Interface Designer

IndieGoGo is seeking an exceptional designer to join our product team and lead the design.

As a member of our team, you will work with engineering, marketing, and customer happiness to sharpen the existing product and design new products that help hundreds upon thousands of people fund the things they are passionate about.

This position is based in San Francisco, CA.


  • Lead, refine and document the visual direction of IndieGoGo’s products
  • Design elegant, simple user interactions that make using IndieGoGo a pleasurable experience
  • Work closely with the product owner and developers to design, implement, and ship products
  • Write clean, standards-compliant HTML and CSS for your designs, working with our talented developers


  • A minimalist sensibility
  • Strong typography and layout skills
  • Experience designing consumer web applications
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills
  • Demonstrated experience shipping live sites
  • Strong technical abilities (including HTML/CSS/JS) and ability to work closely with developers


  • Familiarity with version control systems (such as Git or SVN)


  • Competitive startup salary
  • Equity and a benefits package including health insurance
  • Opportunity to have a huge impact on a fun set of products that help people and their passions!

Sound interesting? We would love to hear what excites you about this opportunity.
