  • Illustrating user flows through the experience (tree level view), which collectively provide a map of the experience (forest for the trees view)


  • Generating prototypes (lo fidelity wireframes, hi fidelity comps, html, flash, paper) that communicate the total (or discrete parts) of the experience


  • Communicating the intention of your design recommendations in ways other than written use cases


  • Demonstrating expert proficiency in the tools of your trade.


We’ll take it for granted that as a seasoned visual designer, you’re familiar with stuff like Photoshop and Illustrator and Fireworks and Visio or Omnigraffle.

iOS UI Developer Role

Brand new Start-up here in Austin.  Well funded, and this would be a leadership role.

Submit your resume and portfolio to or Bidding.Network@gmail. Thanks!

What were looking for:

Were looking for a motivated iOS developer to be a part of a small development team

standard components.

Willing to push the envelope and get your hands dirty through iterative prototyping.
We don’t always work on things that are straight forward and expect you to dive into
things outside your comfort zone to figure out what’s possible.
• Confident but not cocky. We don’t expect you to know everything, but we do expect
you to be honest about it when you don’t.
• In the Austin TX area or are willing to relocate.

You Have:
• 2+ years implementing with Objective-C as a primary language
