almost 9 years ago from Tim Schiller, Staff Software Engineer
I work at Neustar Inc and we want to hire designers, but wowzers that's a tough task. So instead of posting another useless job post. I want to hear from you guys (designers) on ways to actually reach you.
I'm a software engineer, doing UI, and have been somewhat involved in our hiring process.
Here is why we think designers won't come work with us * We're not sexy.. i.e. Design is brand new to us.. (scary, right?). Also, we're super data heavy.. So you'd have to love data vis. * You have a lot of options (in my mind the sexier companies are picking up all of you) * Design thinking isn't quite in our DNA... Yet.
Here is why we tell designers to come work with us * Being a part of shifting a companies entire culture is exciting... There is clear executive and company wide momentum for designers to have a VERY loud voice. * We are so stinking committed to the evolution of your ideas. Seriously. We want you to take over. * (Not a real reason but..) Our new office is pretty dang shwanky.
General advice... For me, getting an email from a real human, not a robot, Saying.. Hey saw this project on github and loved it, let's chat. Makes the world of difference. What is it for you? How do we pursue you well?
