HIRED: Website Designer Committed to AWESOMENESS

We have an opening at Radar Hill for a Website Designer Committed to AWESOMENESS.

If you are an experienced, intelligent, enthusiastic individual with complete fluency in advanced CSS and HTML 5, a passion for great website design, a borderline OCD for web technologies, a loathing of tables, and are a frequent user of validation tools, we want to hear from you! If you’re not awesome, please don’t apply as you will be reporting directly to the Director of Awesomeness (seriously).


  • Are constantly looking to improve your awesomeness as a website designer and developer. You read blogs and tutorials, listen to podcasts and anything else you can get your hands, eyes or ears on!
  • Have a passion for W3C validation, accessibility, and properly structured semantic markup.
  • Are able to fluently hand-code clean, compliant, and semantic XHTML and CSS. And know that HTML doesn’t mean ‘Hit The Mall Later’.
  • Have expert knowledge of cross-browser compatibility, IE rendering issues (you despise IE 6), and non-hacked fixes (or better yet, avoiding conflicts altogether).
  • Understand type, colour, proportion, and love to give a design a distinct style all its own.
  • Are a Linchpin who creates awesome, blow-us-away web designs.
  • Know how to make websites behave awesomely on smartphones.
  • Love collaborating and learning from your peers (bonus points if you can teach us something!). You must be comfortable interacting with a motley crew of designers, carnivores, clients, soup eaters, programmers, vegetarians, writers, cake sniffers, support staff, and animal lovers.


  • Offer competitive salary and benefits package.
  • Work Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm with time off for lunch, on one of our three decks giving great views of the city.
  • Are fun, but love to work and junk.
  • Feed you: Frequent breakfasts, BBQs and lunches.
  • Have great coffee.
  • Whip you into shape: Gym Membership to work off the BBQ.
  • Are an equal-opportunity employer.


  • You know the Adobe Creative Suite (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Acrobat Pro) like the back of your hand (minus points if you know FrontPage).
  • You are a hard-working team player who is responsible and pays atention to the little detials
  • You’ve seen PHP code before (and bonus points if you can code it).

If you are a solo operator with a handful of clients to manage, but only want to be creative & do what you are phenomenal at, come talk to us to un-hook from the yoke of administrative drudgery and join the living again.

To apply, send an email to hr (at) radarhill.com and include:

  • A catchy subject line
  • URLs to your online portfolio & examples of your awesomeness
  • A list of your top 3 skills
  • Your resume

Closing date: Tuesday, 15 March, 2011, at 4 pm.
