* A willingness to jump in on any and all general design tasks as the business requires
* Ability to work with us daily onsite at our HQ in Portola Valley, just west of beautiful Palo Alto, CA.

Skills necessary to succeed

* Ability to understand user needs and to anticipate how these can best be translated into elegant user interfaces
* Being comfortable as the lead designer in a startup environment, maintaining a sense of humor while we build the products and the company at the same time
Primary: 2D design skills; secondary: 3D/4D awareness
* Understanding of real time graphics rendering

* A strong portfolio demonstrating creativity and mastery of great user-centered design
