Are you an industry thought leader with a strong network in mobile, cloud, or web and the ability to build new business? Fed up with endless meetings, stifling bureaucracy, and caps on your potential? Explore a unique opportunity to drive your own future as Sourcebits Studio Director.
Sourcebits Studios are discrete practice groups with focus in specific areas from Mobile Enterprise Applications to Web Gaming. Each is headed by a highly qualified Studio Director who is responsible for driving their Studio’s projects from initial client engagement to final delivery.
Studio Directors are industry leaders in mobile, cloud, and UX design—from the former CEO of the world’s largest open-source mobile platform, to an Apple Design Award winner.
As a Director you’ll share completely in the success of your studio, and have full authority to run it as your own business unit—with unlimited potential. At the same time, you’ll have access to all of the resources Sourcebits provides as a global company backed by Sequoia Capital and IDG Ventures. Sourcebits gives an unprecedented level of support and trust to Studio Directors, and Directors return that trust by delivering spectacular service and results for their clients.
You’ll work with amazing people throughout the company who care as deeply about the success of your clients’ projects as you do. Because Studios work together, clients have access to the best minds in mobile, web, and cloud development across multiple platforms and disciplines. At the core of Sourcebits Studios you’ll find more than 400 Sourcebits employees, each whom bring their extreme passion and focus to client projects across a wide range of talents and skills.
We’re looking for a few people who share that passion and focus and can back it up with a track record of success. If you think you have what it takes to lead your own Studio, get in touch below to learn more.
Web design is the fastest evolving branch of UX.
As browsers and web apps are becoming more capable, companies are shifting more tasks and data to the cloud.
Traditional websites are making way for web apps which can do much more than display static text and a few hyperlinks. When coupled with compelling mobile solutions, web apps let users do more on the go and stay connected from anywhere.
Web UX design is challenging. Because users can view content on multiple platforms, good web design must consider the limitations of different hardware capabilities, varying support for web technologies, different interaction methods, and different screen sizes.
Fortunately, Sourcebits has been on the cutting edge of web innovations since the company began. Our designers and engineers track every trend, and understand what the
evolution of web technologies means to your initiatives. With expertise across all relevant technologies, engineering challenges never distract us from creating elegant, meaningful user experiences. We embrace solutions such as media queries to provide user interfaces which are responsive to unpredictable viewing contexts. We take inspiration from magazine and print design to create layouts which are familiar and readable. And we employ interaction methods your users already know from desktop and mobile apps to make user experiences more intuitive and rewarding.
Making Financial Solutions Simpler
One of the U.S. leaders in small business financial solutions originally asked us to port their Mac product to mobile. When we successfully delivered functionality of their Mac app in an elegant mobile solution, they asked to create three web-based products which interfaced with the Mac app via the cloud, and allowed users to update their billing, invoices, and payments on the go.
We designed a consistent, clean UI and helped our developers optimize the experience for performance, seamlessness and data continuity across platforms. The result is a suite of tools radically less daunting than typical enterprise financial solutions. These are web apps which allow users to get their work done easily, and without distraction.
Creating a Music Discovery Experience That is “Pure Joy”
When a client needed an online radio platform with tightly integrated website, iPhone and Android apps, they came to Sourcebits.
The website focuses heavily on music discovery, consumption, and social interactions. We worked with the client to keep the interface simple and focused on the most important features to make the site easy to learn, with a low interaction cost. The result is an exceptionally good looking, usable, and clean website which makes music discovery pure joy.
Making Industrial Concrete Light
We recently completed the design for an iPad and web app that tests the structural strength of industrial concrete. The dedicated iPad application is used on building sites in place of of traditional paper reporting, and is synced via the cloud to management back in the client’s office. To create the web app we had to overcome several significant design challenges.
The spec called for a very deep feature set, which was full of industry-specific terms and functions. The app needed to support complex reporting and robust synchronization to allow management to quickly approve completed tests. The application also needed to elegantly display meaningful visual metrics for each test in a compact footprint.
Interaction designers stayed up-to-speed with highly specialized industry requirements—and completely immersed themselves in the world of industrial concrete. The resulting visual design is open, light, and easily readable to help the user make the most of this complex and deep application.
