Are you a technical-industry professional from the bay area with experience or interest in user experience? Please join the Salesforce User Experience team for Catalyst - our first-ever UX Design Unconference!
I'm a UI Engineer that have been working in Sophia for 2 years. I open this thread to ask you if you know some names of companies of the area to which I could send a CV. I'm interested to switch to a UX-oriented position, such as UX Designer, Information Architect, Usability specialist or similar and I saw there are people working in these design fields, but I can't find any job opening in Monster, LinkedIn, etc.
Thus, knowing some companies that might be interested in such a position would be really helpful.
With just a week to go we've still got some tickets for edUi 2012 (http://eduiconf.org) available. We sold out last year and we'd love to repeat that success again this year. We still have space in three of our workshops: LeanUX, jQuery, Web Accessibility (one is included with your registration).

My company is considering where UX is placed. I found a number of articles on the topic, and have read Institutionalizing Usability by HFI's founder (and I was employed by HFI in 2008-2009). I'd like to discuss how companies of 2,000-10,000 employees organize user experience:
- Title and role of senior-most UX officer
- Distribution of resources (single cost center vs. matrix)
- UX team make-up and organization
- Key benefits and challenges
If you know of articles, blogs, or slideshares, please post them here too.
