You read that right. We’re looking to hire a new designer that can kick our ass. We’re looking for our current aesthetic to be challenged and changed. Redesign 37signals.

This is the chance to redefine the look and feel of 37signals. We’re going to start with the product marketing sites. We expect some of that influence to trickle down into the apps over time. But initially this is all about a new design language on our public-facing marketing sites.

You’ll have virtual free reign. We want you to take the lead. You’ll have a lot of influence here and across the web design and software design world.

We’re looking for someone who understands type, someone who understands color, someone who understands proportion, someone who understands what it takes to give something a distinct style all its own.

Bring us a fine art angle. Bring us something hand drawn. Bring us great design. Bring us design that communicates a clear purpose. Design that’s friendly, warm, and inviting, yet elegant, modern, and fresh. Bring us design that feels good.

If this is you, share your work and share your thoughts. Tell us why you’re the one for us. Email us at svn [at] 37signals dot com and include [Designer] in the subject. We won’t be able to get back to everyone, but we’ll be in touch if we think you may be the right fit. This is a full time position.

Thanks much. We can’t wait to get started working with you.
