If I had known that today was World Usability Day, I would have waited another day to post about Hesketh’s entry level jobs. Unfortunately, I was out of the loop on this one, so I blew it. With that said, today’s company, Crowd Science, offers some pretty cool analytics tools that might help webmaster makes more informed usability decisions. It’s kind of a stretch, because most of what Crowd Science does is explore demographics, but who cares about World Usability Day anyway? (Ok, I do. A little bit.) So TechCrunch has dubbed Crowd Science as Google Analytics for demographics, and I think that the title fits.
The way that Crowd Science works is that they give webmasters a snippet of code to add to their site. The code results in a pop over invitation to website visitors to participate in a demographic survey. It may not seem like the most effective way to collect data, but how else are you going to figure out the average age of your audience? Or whether your audience is more male or female? This type of demographic information can be extremely helpful whether the webmaster is using it to make his or her site more usable or to negotiate a deal with an advertisers. It’s a great looking service, and it’s something that I might consider trying here on One Day, One Job.
As for jobs at Crowd Science, there are three positions currently listed – Software Engineer, Systems Administrator, and Marketing Coordinator. They all require relevant expertise, but Crowd Science seems more than willing to hire new college grads for these positions. The Systems Administrator job is even identified as mid-level, but the description includes the note – “but if you’re less experienced and think you have the chops and can prove it, we’re all ears.” That’s what we like to hear! We’re also excited to see a Marketing position available at a tech startup, since usually the jobs are so heavily skewed towards software development. All of the jobs are located in Mountain View, CA, so if you think you have the chops (yes, they want you to send them a picture of your facial hair… just kidding) for the jobs, then send your cover letter and resume to email@example.com.
