Job Description:

Zenda's DESIGN 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 are effecting change throughout the internal operations of Fortune 500 companies. Zenda designers drive innovation by modeling the event of work - relationships among business processes, technology, data and the human worker.
