The internet has totally changed everybody’s media preferences and most businesses have just not kept up. We’re all in “feeds” and “streams” like Facebook and messaging, yet companies are still stuck in the era of “pages” and forced advertising.

That’s why there’s Citia.

We built Citia to revolutionize the way companies share information with customers and employees to catch up on mobile-first media habits. Yes, we have customers ranging from tattoos (MTV) to turbines (GE) on the platform. Come join us on the ground floor as we create a $2B+ market!

Companies including Viacom, Amazon, Atlassian, GE, and Comcast use the Citia platform to create fully-featured, browser-based and app-like experiences that run cross-device and cross-platform in a “game-changing” Web-App system. Through our proprietary “CardMesh” we allow companies to communicate in a more contemporary way, through swipeable and snackable content. We have completely changed the user engagement game to the tune of 10x all previous era metrics.

As design lead, you will be responsible for the areas where design, technology and business intersect. You will expected to utilize your full range of product design, interaction design, and visual design skills, owning the experience for a wide area of the Citia product.

You will also be working directly with our client partners to help them successfully execute projects using the Citia platform, from overall design strategy, down to creation and production work. This can include training clients to use the platform, assisting with client questions, producing Cardsites, asset management, copy editing, and managing rounds of edits received from the client.

Assignments can also include website design, sales collateral, email blasts, internal and external communication, and branding.

The ideal candidate will have a portfolio that demonstrates strong design work — including a solid understanding of user-experience and user-interface best practices — and experience with web development technologies. Candidates are expected to be quick learners with creative ideas and have the proven ability to work collaboratively.

Enthusiasm — for designing and making great products and experiences — is essential. Original, flexible, critical thinkers who communicate and collaborate well with a wide range of contributors will thrive.

Candidates should possess impeccable organizational skills, strong writing skills, knowledge of digital assets (.jpeg, .png, .gif, .mp4), an eagerness to learn, and the ability to multi-task with attention to detail.
