We have an immediate need for an IA to work on browser-based interfaces.
This is a short-term contract position (3-4 weeks) with the
possibility to convert to long-term (~6 months).
The scope of the work will comprise creating process flows based on
understanding gleaned from existing systems, prototypes, requirement
sessions and ongoing ethnographic user research. Other assets like
low-fidelity wireframes and content maps will also be created in
accordance with in-house standards.
At Staples these IA deliverables are widely used by the business and
IS departments as means of communication and form a part of our
-Work Samples (wire frames, flows, case studies, etc.). Please zip if
