Bring your graphic design, information visualization, interaction
design, and software development skills to an award-winning team with an
innovative product that combats financial fraud.

Memento Security is a venture-backed software company with a
collaborative work culture and substantial growth opportunities. We are
looking to hire a visual thinker with software development skills to
join our product development team in a newly created role: Interaction
Designer.

Why Visual Thinking in Software Development?
For most enterprise software companies, graphic design is usually an
afterthought in the software development process. Most software
companies only understand the role of graphic design and information
visualization to mean things like "icon design", or "better production
values". It is no wonder that most enterprise software products do
nothing more than meet a basic standard of design and interaction
usability.
Here at Memento, we know that the images strengthen the message: that
great design is a central element of the product development process. We
seek to build software products that bring joy to our users every single
day. In the Interaction Designer role, you will be responsible for the
visual, interactive, and experiential elements of our products.

Why Software Development in Graphic Design?
There is no better way to make sure your ideas are implemented than to
play a role in implementing them yourself. Frank Lloyd Wright designed
great homes, but many of them leaked! By participating in the
realization of your design and interaction ideas, you will make sure
that they work as intended, are bug-free, and actually bring promised
joy to real-world users.

Our Vision for the Interaction Designer position
We feel this is an exciting, hands-on, important position where you will
work closely with our product development team on exciting design
problems, interaction issues, and new business opportunities using
state-of-the art technologies. Approximately 40% of your time will be
spent on Interaction Design (user interface), 40% on Graphic Design
(color, layout, typography) and 20% on Programming. The position allows
