Graphic Designer - Mountain View
This position is based in Mountain View, CA.
We're looking for a Graphic Designer to help steward and extend the Google brand.

Our environment is fast-paced, high-pressured, and sometimes unpredictable. If you enjoy teaming up with a team of talented, high-powered, and enthusiastic people to deliver on a large number of diverse projects that further define the Google brand, drop us a line.
Please provide a portfolio for review.
* BA/BS degree in Design or related discipline; advanced degrees appreciated.
* 3+ years agency or in-house experience required. Proof of depth of online design experience a must.
* Advanced skill in Photoshop, Illustrator, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
* Highly well-organized and ability to balance multiple simultaneous projects.
* Elegant, sleek, and accessible sense of design...like the Google home page.
* Extreme attention to detail and consistency - every pixel counts!
