CSAA is the AAA Member organization for Northern California, Nevada, and
Utah and is the second largest AAA club, servicing nearly 4 million Members

Our salary is competitive and we work sane hours.

I have two positions available, and can take a less experienced interaction
designer for one of those, so don't rule yourself out if you don't think
you're a "senior" interaction designer.

help our customers to meet their needs and our business partners to fulfill
their goals.

initiatives meets intended user interaction
- Participate in the development of product prototypes for usability
testing and proof of concept purposes
- Participate in usability tests by helping to define methodology,
conducting walks-through, and developing reports
- Represent proposed solutions to business partners

*Qualifications*:

- Minimum 3 years web application interaction design and/or
information architecture experience, undergraduate or graduate degree in
