Do you like developing in your free time, just because you love it?

Does the idea of working with a young company, in a rapidly changing environment where your ideas matter and you can make a difference, sound like you?

Do you like Dart Guns, WII, and jamming out to Spotify while you work?

Then 5Degrees might be the place for you.

5Degrees was a finalist in the official South by Southwest Mobile Accelerator.

5Degrees is a Chicago-based software business riding the wave of Cloud computing with mobile and social at its core. The company is creating cool, next generation technology while also integrating API’s from popular social networks.

We are reinventing how people manage all the relationships in their life. It’s like Evernote for your contacts. We are focused on continuous improvement of our user’s experience. Stickiness and Virality are our key measures of product success. We have already build an iPhone application and a cloud-sync engine… but we need from a talented developer intern to complete our Web Application before the end of the summer!

We are looking for an energetic front-end web developer who loves what they do and think fun is creating new, unique, easy-to-use, and engaging interactive experiences while solving problems.

We look for people who want to work with a talented team of other developers who share a similar vision… people who can focus on the big picture while paying attention to every little detail.

We prefer an intern(s)  with some understanding of CSS, JavaScript, AJAX and PHP.

Title UIUX Designer
Categories Creative Designer
Salary Competitive
Start Date 2012-02-03
Location Chicago, IL
Job Information

We need a UIUX Designer with a passion for mobile technology.

  • First and foremost, you should have an excellent eye for design. You should know great mobile/ web UI when you see it, and be able to explain why it’s great (even if you didn’t create it!).
  • You should have a passion for mobile technology… you should love applications, and consider yourself an early adopter of the newest technologies.
  • You’ll need to be a Photoshop samurai (obviously, better than a ninja). You should also be fluent in Illustrator, OmniGraffle, or whatever you use to create wireframes.
  • You should have at least a working knowledge of XHTML/CSS. If you can cutup your own comps, so much the better (Fireworks, anyone?)
  • Of course, we’re looking for self-starters – candidates who can jump in quickly without a lot of direction, and learn by asking the right questions.
  • Finally, you should have a solid portfolio of mobile/ web application design. We want to see that you’ve built great mobile/ web interfaces before, not just great websites.


This is a middle-level position; we’re looking for somebody who has at least 3+ years of UI/UX design experience.

Other Details

5Degrees offers a competitive salary and generous equity option grants. You will work in a fun and creative environment–dodging (and throwing) nerf darts, helicopters, and flying ducks–with a talented group of individuals that are passionate about changing the world.

You’ll start off as a freelance / contract employee and if the mutual fit is great, you’ll have an opportunity to join the team full-time.
