Hi, all,

I'm looking for a senior designer with excellent interaction design skills
and significant experience in usability testing and user research. This
person will have primary responsibility for my company's new email archiving
product--it's undergoing a complete UI re-write in the next release, which
should provide some great opportunities to start from the beginning in
re-thinking how it should work.

Connected is a small company, approximately 130 employees, based in
Framingham, MA. It's a great team to work with. The UI discipline is
fairly young at Connected (1 1/2 years), so there's plenty of opportunity to
shape how UI is done here.

I've included the job description below. If you're interested, please send
me your resume.

Thanks in advance!
