THE ‘EXECUTIONER’ ROLE – UX DESIGNER ($65,000 – $85,000)

SIGN - MISSED OPPORTUNITY

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland lived a woman named Betty, and her son. Although she was despairingly poor, Betty was literate … and she taught her son to read and write.

She would constantly remind her son that only money could bring him happiness in this world … and when he was finally old enough … she encouraged him to leave Ireland … and earn his fortunes in America!

Years later, a well-dressed man, looking for a place to say …  knocked at Betty’s door. She opened her home to him, and later that night … as he lay sleeping … Betty crept into his room and plunged a knife into his heart!

As she rummaged through his belongings (looking for money), she discovered this man was, in fact, her son!

Overcome with the horror of her actions, Betty stumbled into the street … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial and was condemned to death – by hanging!

On the day of her execution … as Betty and several other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to execute them himself.

Seizing the opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the prisoners herself!

The sheriff agreed and Betty immediately got to work. So capable was “Lady Betty” that she was appointed Roscommon’s Official Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … nothing, really.
That said … much like the sheriff … our client is also looking for an ‘executioner’ of sorts.
And, while they prefer to call them a UX Designer … they’ll need them to execute … at the highest levels!
