So you want to fight crimes against usability? Make the web wide world a better place?
Our team have many titles: usability specialist, user experience analyst, content strategist, user assistance developer, web editor, content developer. However, what we all have in common is a passion for creating great user experiences.
Your educational background and career experience is likely to be in user experience or human factors, web or software development, communications, or marketing. You may have a wide breadth of user-centred design, web/app development, or usability experience, or an in-depth knowledge of a particular industry or technology.
Although our people come from diverse educational backgrounds and have pursued a variety of career paths, they all have the following core qualities:
- A fanatical (or at least a strong) interest in technology and software. It should be part of who you are, not just what you do.
- A friendly, inquisitive nature, with good communication skills.
This is not a job for shrinking violets who like to spend the day bathing in the UV glow of their computer screen. You'll be visiting clients, conducting information-gathering sessions and workshops and generally dealing with people, so it's important that you're calm, presentable, and professional in all situations.
- A superior ability to write, edit and present information, both oral and written. You'll need the ability to communicate test findings and any recommendations in clear, non-technical language and deliver polished, customer-facing documentation, presentations, and training.
If you think you have that rare right-brain/left-brain combination of technical know-how and a user-centred outlook, we'd love to hear from you. See the panel on the right for information on our current openings and how to apply.
