Working at Advomatic

As a contract information architect you would:

  • Be a member of the discovery team (along with an web designer (can you do that too?), technical lead, and project manager) during the discovery phase of a project.
  • Guide a client through a discovery survey to tease out the problems with the existing website, and goals for the new one.
  • Content audit an existing website.
  • Devise an architecture to fix issues with the existing site (while avoiding new ones).
  • Create a sitemap
  • Create wireframes and/or content hierarchy.
  • Participate in internal reviews where you receive feedback from the other members of the discovery team about how your deliverables impact their areas of expertise.
  • Incorporate feedback from the clients to revise the deliverables.
  • During the build phase of a project, review the website and give comments about the implementation of your IA.

You must have these qualities:

  • Superior communication skills (especially written) with an ability to translate abstract concepts for clients.
  • Attention to detail. Please start your cover letter/pitch with “Dear Advoteam,” when applying.
  • Strong self-management skills with the ability to organize and manage multiple priorities.
  • Located in a timezone shared with the continental United States.
  • Willingness to make compromises to improve the overall success of the project.
  • The ability to create/revise deliverables quickly.

 

  • A strong portfolio.  But this is secondary to the above qualities.

It would be great if you had a few of these qualities, too:

  • Past work in a client service agency or building tools for mission-driven organizations.
  • Experience working on a distributed team.
  • An excellent sense of humor.
