HR Recruiter for Creatives – Immediate Opening

Part-time or Consultant Position

Zenda’s TEAM is setting the standard in Employee Experience

Twenty years ago, the principals at Zenda led graphic and industrial designers into the new world of user interface design. Today we are leading designers from UI/UX into the next frontier! The leadership team at Zenda believes that there are many skilled designers in the workforce whose talents are underutilized and who are under-challenged in the pursuit of the usability of ecommerce websites and the ‘design’ of yet another variation on UI/UX design patterns and standards.  Skilled designers are a powerful force – when given the right opportunity. Zenda’s clients are allowing our designers to define, explore and solve some of their most interesting operational challenges. This is new territory for design!

 Zenda designers and consultants are effecting change throughout the internal operations of Fortune 500 companies. Zenda drives innovation by modeling the event of work - relationships among business processes, technology, data and the human worker. Following 25 years running the first and longest operating UX design firm, the founders of Electronic Ink have started a consulting firm driving the next wave of design- Employee Experience within the business enterprise. This is a unique opportunity to become part of Zenda’s core team.
