Career objective

As cliché as it sounds, I want to work for a cutting-edge company that genuinely wants to change the world. This company understands that user experience happens at many levels; not just with the designers. They know that an employee is valued for their outstanding character as much as the income they help generate. And, they know that if you can’t have fun while working, why bother doing it?
