seeking agile-usability/ucd professionals
- A while back - a long while back now - I posted something saying my
company, ThoughtWorks, was looking for UCD-types. Well, for a
variety of reasons, things didn't quite come together at that time.
Since then, business has increased and the absence of user centered
designers on agile projects has been noticed. If you've got a
UCD/usability background, and are interested in this agile stuff,
ThoughtWorks needs you.
I will warn you the work can be a bit tough, and the travel isn't
always fun. But, I personally have never worked with a smarter group
of people or liked the place I was working more.
Below you'll find the job posting from ThoughtWorks. Feel free to
contact me for information... but those of you who contacted me
before know that if you really want to go somewhere with this,
contact ThoughtWorks directly. ;-) That said I'm happy to answer
questions about the company and the work.
