Soundslice - Web UX designer - Chicago, IL

Soundslice (https://www.soundslice.com/) is "living sheet music." We make web-based, responsive music-notation technology that you can listen to and interact with. The goal is to be the best way to learn any piece of music.

See https://www.soundslice.com/demo for an example. It's one of the coolest HTML5 web apps in the world that's an actual business and not a project. When I originally posted it to HN, it stayed at the top of the homepage for the better part of a day and was universally praised: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4790636

Soundslice is a small (two-person) business -- you'd be the third. It's proudly bootstrapped and makes money. We make money by (1) licensing our technology, (2) selling a subscription service to music teachers and (3) selling interactive sheet music.

We're looking for a UX designer. Somebody who's good at the whole design process -- understanding problems, creating mockups, implementing in HTML/CSS.

WHY WORK HERE:

* You'd work on an amazing product that helps people learn music.

* Design is front-and-center of our product. Much of its value is pure UX.

* Excellent work/life balance.

* You'd work with me (one of the people who created Django, plus some other stuff; see holovaty.com). I'm an experienced developer and can teach you a lot, if you're open to it.

Good to see Soundslice on the hire!
