Hace dos años éramos 3. Desde entonces, el concepto “User Experience” caló hondo en nuestra empresa a través de buenos resultados y un gran trabajo por parte de cada uno de los integrantes del equipo de UX. Ahora somos 15 y nos enfrentamos con más proyectos de los que podemos humanamente asumir.
Para hacer frente a tal demanda, asegurándonos de mantener el nivel más alto posible y siempre enfocados en resultados, el equipo necesita expandirse nuevamente. Comparto aquí la descripción de los puestos de trabajos que tengo abiertos, y necesito cubrir con urgencia.
Nota: Este post lo haré en inglés, porque siendo una empresa multinacional el idioma vehicular es el inglés y necesitas poder comunicarte bien en este idioma
