Web Designer

We are looking for a web designer to join the Real Geeks team. You will be working alongside management and engineers to design everything across our platform. While no workday is the same, you would be tasked with influencing and refining the user experience and user interface design for an innovative real estate search platform, CRM, CMS and mobile apps.

The best candidate is a designer who's obsessed with creating amazing products that change lives (just as buying and selling real estate, for many people, change lives) in addition to learning about the latest and greatest technology. We want someone that gets motivated to make their apps better when they see one that works better than theirs.

Most importantly, we want someone to be an advocate for our users, and help us create products that solve complex, real world problems with simple and intuitive design. Someone dedicated to the craft of designs and is excited about working in an agile and collaborative environment!
