Principal User Experience Architect
Tandemseven is a privately held, self-financed consulting company that designs and architects business portals and custom e-business applications. We specialize in creating, usable, intuitive interfaces for complex applications.
We are currently hiring Principal User Experience Architects. Here's what is different about working for TandemSeven:
We are a consulting company-not an agency or a resourcing company
Our primary goal is to provide the best solution for the client-not to win design awards (although we have won them, and we appreciate the industry recognition)
We focus on the complicated stuff-e-commerce, transactional systems, enterprise-scaled portals, global sites where we optimize the designs for a CMS and RIAs
User Experience Architects (UEAs) define the strategy-we do the research and the work, providing the smartest integration of research findings with the solution (less is lost in translation)
UEAs maintain the primary client relationship-we do not rely on others to translate requirements and feedback; we hear it directly from the source.
