A graduate student in the rhetoric and composition program works as a User Experience Researcher for an email marketing company called MailChimp. They are looking for some folks who have never used MailChimp before and would be willing to take part in a usability study. The study should last about an hour. They are located in downtown Atlanta near Georgia Tech, not far from GSU. They are running the studies until Sept 5 (next Thursday). If you are interested in participating, please contact Jennifer Downs at email@example.com ASAP. They also have some remote testing opportunities, if you can’t come in person.
What’s in it for you? No money, but . . . doing a user test for a company like MailChimp would actually entitle you to some pretty big bragging rights. MailChimp is a very prominent email marketing company, and they are considered “thought leaders” in the technology, UX, and design industries. They have some pretty strong connections to folks at Twitter and 37 Signals and people like Louis Rosenfeld.
