Try this job on for size

Now, Epic Software has a foothold in the US market (I’ve seen their software at most of the clinics I’ve ever been to), but I don’t envy the person who inherits this job. Mainly because the interface for the software, from what I’ve seen, needs SERIOUS help Yikes.

Intergalactic Headquarters?

“Intergalactic Headquarters”. In Madison, Wisconsin? And you have to move there? Sounds fun, if you like meat and cheese.

I don’t mean to be snarky negative but how does this job ad give IxD a good name? (See the full job ad here.)

On a positive note, it’s good to see Epic acknowledging they need to be concerned with the usability of their software, and it seems they have a sense of humor about it — not easy in the healthcare software industry.

As an Interaction Designer, would you apply for this job? Do you see it as an opportunity or an uphill battle?
