A great Silicon Valley startup is seeking a skilled full-time in-house
interaction designer to help us develop the next (or perhaps the first!)
great visual financial markets analysis platform. We are attacking the
space from a user-centered, analyst-driven perspective that is unique in
the spaces we're pursuing. This is a fantastic opportunity for an
entrepreneurial, experienced interaction designer to help build a strong
design team from the ground up.

Here's the kind of person we're looking for:

- Expert-level experience with Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash.

- Entrepreneurial, multidisciplinary spirit -- our ideal candidate is
not afraid to get their hands dirty.

- Ability to work with PM and engineering teams to create and iterate on
designs that are at once powerful, easy to use, and highly aesthetic.

- Strong sense for information visualization and gestalt principles.
Tufte is your hero.

- Strong interpersonal and communication skills. Design is a highly
collaborative process!

- 2+ years of experience designing interactive rich clients in a lead
designer role.

- BA, BFA, or MFA in a formal design-related discipline preferred but
not required.

- Familiarity and interest in investing and financial markets a strong
plus.

Salary and equity compensation are highly competitive. We provide
excellent benefits, including dental, medical, vision, and gourmet
catered meals.

To apply, please email gtan at palantirtech.com with resume and portfolio.

I can try... but still need some Academia background... I will study the
Italian Design Academy.
