Craigslist is finally seeking to redesign its user interface after years of obligatory misuse of whitespace and text-heavy pages. Earlier this week, Cragslist posted that a job listing for Senior UI / Usability / Front End Engineer to revamp the rather stone-age (looks-wise) website. Craigslist hopse to revive its look, bringing it into the modern day and age. The revamp should also usher in an in-house app (or at the least a mobile friendly web app.)
Though we’d appreciate a mobile-friendly UI, what we would really want to see is an expanded search function, alongside improved navigation. We’re not sure if you remember the last time Craigslist made a change in the UI, but even that was a subtle improvement over its predecessor. Even though Craigslist has been going strong with about 30 billion page views a month; it still faces competition from more targeted services like Zaarly and Airbnb, which offer connect users to local selling markets and places to crash.
Regardless of what changes Craigslist decides to make, we hope it'll stay true to its quick-loading pages and ease of use. If you find yourself pulling your hair out due to its lack of creativity and conveniently live in the Bay Area, you can apply for the job here.
