New Job posting

I hope everyone is planning on coming to the HFES conference next week!! We will be holding the ITG Business meeting there as well.

Here is a job posting, courtesy of Gavin Lew at UserCentric

“We are looking for talented people…”

It seems that every third job posting for user research or user interface design starts with this statement.

User Centric is looking for talented people. But instead of posting a traditional job listing, we want to take a different perspective and write about what it is like to work at a company like User Centric and hopefully you’ll realize it is where you want to go with your career.

Our goal is to affect positive change in the user experience. User Centric is a company that is privileged to have projects where the outcomes can influence the lives of millions - or sometimes just a handful. What we do has meaning and it begins with a desire to understand how people interact with technology.

In any given month at User Centric, you might work on a project that will make daily tasks easier for 40 million users… and then switch gears to then work on a different project where a user will thank you because this product will “change the way my kids will look at their mother”. This doesn't happen every day, but many days are truly great.

Opportunities like these frequently emerge at User Centric is because we work on a diverse set of experiences and technologies. We apply our knowledge, methodologies, and skills toward many different types of products across different environments. At User Centric, you will find yourself applying design and user experience techniques to small screen interfaces, mobile devices, in-vehicle applications, health care products, voice interfaces, business applications, and consumer products. Technology is converging, so the domains we work on are also converging.

When it comes to understanding user experience, there is no perfect approach in design or single way to capture and measure the experience. We continue to evolve our practices and techniques with each and every project. and encourage our team members to learn and educate their colleagues.
Ultimately what allows us to enjoy our work the most is our team. Our team at User Centric makes all the difference. We have found we’re more insightful and creative practitioners when we can leverage the experience and intellect of a team.

And we have fun together! There is a tremendous energy that comes out when our teams work on user research and interface design projects.

User Centric is looking for people who want to make this kind of difference - people who want to work on more than just one type of product and learn about multiple knowledge domains. You will never be bored at User Centric because projects are so diverse.

We are looking for:
  • Smart, passionate, articulate, and dedicated individuals who get really excited when working with new technologies and are also
  • Looking forward to contributing to insightful, creative teams and
  • Think that the ideal job would let them learn something new almost everyday
If you are a user experience researcher, human factors engineer, ethnographer, user interaction or interface designer, cognitive engineer, information architect, usability specialist or something similar, contact us to learn more about opportunities at User Centric.

We will be interviewing at the HFES meeting onsite from Tuesday Sept 23- Wednesday Sept 24. Look for us in the Career Center (and bring your resume)!
