San Francisco, CA - Designers Wanted at Locu (http://locu.com)

Locu is developing technologies to change local search ($35bn advertising market by 2014) by creating the world's largest semantically-annotated repository of real-time small-business data. We have recently launched Locu <http://locu.com>, our first product, which helps restaurants better manage their online presence.

We're creating powerful design tools that let local merchants better connect with their consumers. We're looking for world-class visual designers and user experience designers who are excited to redefine what a menu looks and feels like across web and print, and create tools that put modern web technology in the hands of merchants.

  Exceptional visual and/or interaction design talent - please include

  (Intern candidates may link to individual samples of their work
  instead of a portfolio.)

  Excellent written and verbal skills - not afraid to debate and
