Best. Job ad. EVER.

Masochistic web designer with delusions of grandeur

Stockholm, 1 position
Application deadline: 2011-09-09

We are a small, young, hungry startup with great ambitions, and now we need to hire our first designer. We are looking for someone who has a genuine passion for design ? the kind of person who feels a shiver down their spine at the sight of unkerned character pairs and is skeptical about eating at a restaurant with an ugly menu.
