Almost seven years ago, USV decided that our web site should be a blog. One that allowed for a varied and ongoing conversation with the world and one that could evolve over time.
Fast forward to 2012: we realized USV folks publish different things, in different places and at different times; our portfolio companies and their teams create content spread over the web; and the USV network produces a vast amount of interesting material. It led us to consider the next stage of the evolution of the Union Square Ventures internet presence, and our instincts are telling us it may look and feel more like an application or web/mobile service that aggregates content rather than strict content publishing.
We are therefore looking for someone who can help us build this specific project. Someone who is well versed in web and mobile and design methodologies but who is also a creative thinker. We have some basic ideas of the application we would like to build, but these are not set in stone; we value someone who can not only design and build but also help with the initial brainstorming, ideas, scope and prototyping.
We imagine this opportunity will be of a few months duration. If this sounds like fun to you please tell us a little about yourself in the form below.
