Intercom is going really well for us. So much so that we need help. Our design team previously consisted of myself & Eoghan. But we can't give design or UI the time it deserves any more. We've recently hired a fantastic visual designer, and we're looking to pair him with a fantastic UX person. The role is pure UX, no clients, pitches, or proposals. You'll be working with our visual designer, myself and Eoghan (CEO) to make Intercom the most usable beautiful web application in the space.

You can get more info on the website: http://www.designjam.ie or on the Eventbrite page http://designjamdublin.eventbrite.com

companies of all shapes and sizes structure and populate their UX teams.
