Product & Design | San Francisco, CA

Job Description

Are you a rising product designer with the swagger it takes to create user experiences for one of the most popular websites in the world?

Like our fans and communities, Wikia is passionate, high-energy, and collaborative. Wikia is one of the largest Creative Commons-licensed sites in the world, as we maintain over 300,000 wikia communities across an impressive array of subjects, spanning all aspects of entertainment, games, and lifestyle. We are rated as a Quantcast Top 40, ComScore Top 100, and Nielsen Top 10 Social Media Site and are visited by over 100 million people a month. 

Our Product Design team is creating amazing new user experiences and products that will extend into 2014 and beyond. Through collaboration with engineering, product management and marketing you will develop cutting edge user experience strategies and detailed designs for users all over the world. Defining experiences and interaction models will lead to the design of delightful, polished products that excite our users, advertisers, and partners across all Wikia experiences – desktop, mobile and new devices. 

As a senior designer for over 4 years now, your sophisticated portfolio shows off both your visual design and user experience chops. You have a deep understanding and passion for all things typography (i.e. you regularly read Bringhurst, Muller, etc). With a strong knowledge of the user centered design process, you know when to adhere to it and when to break it.  Navigating an organization and communicating with cross-functional teams comes naturally to you and you thrive on presenting your ideas to various stakeholders. Additionally, you can write HTML and CSS with the best of ‘em! Major bonus points if you can write smart copy and even smarter JavaScript or JQuery. 

Your impact will extend far beyond your own team to encompass our business as a media platform, consumer products and even technology. Our exciting fan platform is going to introduce great career challenges for you but is also coupled with a culture that emphasizes strong work life balance. For your expertise, we will offer a competitive salary, stock options, and full benefits. Our dog-friendly digs are located in San Francisco (between BART and CalTrain) and also come with a stocked pantry and gaming room, where some employees practice yoga at lunch. 

Join our quest to build one of the largest and most interesting sites in the world. Send us a link to the amazing portfolio you’ve amassed and let’s get you started!
