Westside Visual Developer (UXD) Opportunity

From: Brian W.
Sent on: Thursday, November 29, 2012 10:05 AM

An entertainment company I work with is seeking a visual developer, and in my opinion they really need someone with UX skills. They've got usability issues but will probably have to address them in stages, as a complete top-down reworking of their various properties is not feasible.

Their posting is below (I have advised them that the description is too art-oriented and not enough UX, which I think is why their previous candidates have not been good fits). Resumes or followups to [address removed], or contact me off-board for more info.

Good luck!
