Do you like knowing that your work has life-saving value?  Do you like the squeak of dry-erase markers on a giant whiteboard, or a lively debate about a user’s optimal experience, or the view of the South Side slopes, or the autonomy to accomplish your goals as you see fit, or board game lunches?  Do you like the kind of day where you learn so many new skills that your brain feels like it just ate Thanksgiving dinner?  Sound intriguing?  Viz is looking for people like you: smart, creative, and fun.
