Hi everybody,

We have a couple of open interaction design positions at Informatica.
We're looking for relatively senior people who have experience designing
the behavior of complex enterprise software. We pretty much stick to the
Cooper approach, so any experience with the standard Cooper toolkit
(personas/goals, design scenarios, etc.) is a plus.

If you're interested in either of these positions, send your resume and
cover letter to Thao Diep: tdiep at informatica.com. (Include
'discuss-interactiondesigners' in the subject line)

Thanks,
Jeanine
