We've been doing a lot of exciting stuff here in our little ol' command center in Campbell, CA. We're looking to expand out efforts for World Domination and are looking to add a brand new Business Developer to help us do that!
We're passionate — we work hard and play hard. We're looking for an equally passionate person who is excited about new emerging technologies, rapid prototyping and connecting with people to join our team. As Business Developer at ZURB, you're one of our first points of contact to the outside world. You are so much more than a closer. You're an educator!
Startups and grownup startups are excited about ZURB and seek us out to help them with their product design problems. We use special tactics to solve problems. We listen and ask questions. We're dedicated to helping clients fill their gaps, provide an educational experience and, of course, solve their problems.
The ZURB experience doesn't stop with our services, that's just the beginning! Our passion goes far beyond solving problems. We're also teachers and trainers. We want to connect with our clients on an educational level. We've created custom training classes for our clients to help their teams become better product designers. We can help our clients with their hiring needs too. Our job board can help our clients find other awesome product designers to join their teams! Education through sales.
Working with the ZURBians is an exciting, addictive experience. When we're excited about an idea, we get a twinkle in our eyes that border's madness. We make our own opportunities — we blaze our own trails. We're movers, shakers and crushers!

Some time ago, we suggested to Todd Harple, an anthropologist at Intel, to consider doing his 10 week sabbatical here in Turin at the International Training Center of the International Labor Organization (a United Nations structure).

In the wake of Big Data, ethnographers can offer thick data, says Tricia Wang. In the face of the derisive mention of “anecdotes”, we ought to stand up to defend the value of stories. “Lacking the conceptual words to quickly position the value of ethnographic work in the context of Big Data, I have begun, [...]
Most people aren’t aware that their personal data is being collected and shared. Many users don’t take the time to validate their expectations and most never read privacy policies.
People only seem to become aware of such concerns when something happens that doesn’t meet their expectations, such as seeing their friend’s picture in a Facebook ad or seeing banner ads that match their most recent purchase.

Service design has a track record of being a catalyst towards customer orientation, organizational alignment and improving the total customer experience." (Stefan Moritz ~ Veryday)
Vince Rossi and Adam Metallo are currently in the process of capturing high quality, three-dimensional representations of the Smithsonian's most priceless and important collections. Their aim? To make the objects available to the public for research, education and general interest purposes. (Bravo!)
