Anyone work at or know of the Fjord office (subsidiary of Accenture) in DC? Clients? Work/life balance? Travel required?

Yeah I used to work in AFS in our digital practice and worked out of that office. It’s a design studio, think all the marketing, design thinking, rapid prototyping, fancy start-up stuff. It’s expanded to two floors now I think, but they seem to have a fairly relaxed work/life balance and actually do some pretty cool work. I know they were working on the customer interaction experience and design for the library of Congress last time I was there a year ago. Most of the work is federal and requires no travel. Clients are probably all federal.

This sounds so cool to me - I met a couple of Fjord UX people a few years back at a women’s hackathon. Do you know if they hire anyone that’s more of a data designer/strategist type?

Do you know of anyone there in the current practice? I would likely be technical lead/task lead level. Let me DM you today with some questions.

Love it! But mainly for designers?

I was wondering if I can still keep my visa stamping appointment if I take up the new offer and get my H1b transferred? I really want to travel back home in December , it’s been rough 3 years.
