Help us transition to X Theme and Cornerstone

Our SAAS product helps our customers communicate better. We serve SoundCloud, Quiksilver, Pinterest, Sendgrid and 700 more. Our product is rolled out company-wide, from the intern to the CEO.

We’re pretty good at designing the main product, and in theory we are also able to design our website, but we somehow never find the time.

If you love modern web design, are experienced using WordPress and especially X Theme/Cornerstone, and can prove it by showcasing previous projects, we’d love to work with you!

About us

Our product is a feedback platform. Our clients’ staff use it to give and receive feedback about their work, to set goals and objectives and to praise each other for a job well done. (We use it internally too of course.) It’s a userfriendly product, enabled by a very configurable and complex backend.

We’re 18 people in Berlin and San Francisco, and currently looking to grow to 28 staff. We are tech heavy, and our dev team contains 4 UI/UX Designers and Developers.

What you’ll do

You’ll be in charge of transitioning the content of our current website to WordPress, using X Theme and Cornerstone. We’ll also be adding quite a few new sections to the site. We’re working with an illustrator who has provided new graphics and styles which will also get applied to the site once content is transitioned.

The first phase of the project will be mostly content focused, and would be expected to be complete in a couple of weeks. Then there will be follow-up tasks if you’re interested.

You will collaborate with our very skilled internal UI/UX designers and JavaScript developers if additional coding is needed, but ultimately it’s your baby.

Who we’re looking for

This is a very hands-on position. We’d love to welcome you if:

  • You have a design-focused eye and appreciate clean layouts
  • You have mid-level to advanced experience with WordPress
  • You are very familiar with X Theme and its Cornerstone editor
  • You love to code CSS, and improve your skills every day
  • You have 2+ years of experience working with complex websites and clients that have high quality standards
  • You’re a self-starter who will seek out improvements on your own

We’re creating custom Cornerstone elements / components, so experience with this would be a bonus.

We’re based in Berlin, but it’s fine if you work remotely, as long as you work mostly in the CET timezone.

Apply Now!

We’re hoping to find our perfect match! Since it’s a very visual task, we don’t need a long cover letter or awesomely designed CV. But we do ant to see proof that you are up for the task at hand. Send us complex business-websites that you came up with and which showcase a modern take on design. If you have other material like Dribble or Behance doodles then do include them too. The focus will however be on projects that you completed and which are live.
