At I²R, we work daily to improve our customer’s manufacturing capabilities. Our customer are extremely diverse and spread all over North America (and a few internationally). Our customers make roofing shingles, process poultry and beef, distill water, bottle apple juice, roast coffee, and fry potato chips.
Customers call us when they want to make more products, faster and better than before. They call us when the line is down and no one knows why. They call us when they have a mountain of live data, but can’t make heads or tails of it all. 
You will be working with small teams of engineers to design beautiful and profound interfaces for our customer’s data. We need someone who can envision meaningful ways to present a database of numbers. We need someone who can give tools to our customers so they can make quicker and better decisions. We need someone to help our sales team’s quotes come alive with realistic interfaces. We are looking for the right type of person, not a fixed set of knowledge.
You are someone who loves beautiful interfaces and can create something great from a blank slate. You probably have read all of Edward Tufte’s books, subscribe to the Information is Beautiful blog, and wonder how the iPad is so amazing. You probably find most information dashboards useless and frown on USA Today’s chart of the day.
Our work can often be challenging and demanding. You will often be involved in several projects from beginning to end, all at the same time. When things aren’t working, our customers are losing money.
Primary responsibilities:
  • Design meaningful dashboards and reports for our customer’s information
  • Create mockups of user interfaces for sales quotes
  • Light programming/scripting
  • Travel to customer site to implement
Core competencies:
  • User interface design
  • Ability to translate complex ideas into simple, beautiful interfaces
  • Microsoft SQL skills are highly desired, but heavy experience in any SQL background is acceptable
  • Ability and eagerness to learn new skills and tools
  • Computer science background with several languages under your belt
  • Ready to travel 40% (may include weekends)
Important: Many of our customers have limited to no VPN access. You will need to be willing to travel up to 40%. Often we have several weeks of development at our office and a few weeks of on-site time with our customers to implement.
Location: The majority of our company is located in Plano, Texas (suburb of Dallas, Texas). We are slowly growing accustomed to remote workers. If you have prior experience at working at home, please provide references or evidence of your ability to do so well.
I²R offers competitive salaries and benefits, including health/dental, and flexible vacation. We’re a small company with great consideration for individual needs. Come join our family!
We are looking to hire immediately, so please do not hesitate to contact us today.

To apply: Send a résumé and a portfolio of work (URLs are OK) to programming-jobs@i2r.com.
