I am from South Korea and studying new media advertising in the U.S. I am really confused about the UX career responsibilities. There are so many titles such as planning, UX, research, usability and human factors. Is there a difference between planning and UX and research and usability and human factors – or is it all the same job?
Are you passionate about people and building unique, kick-ass user experiences? Myplanet is looking for a creative thinker who can handle their own conducting research, innovating on our UX process, sketching wireframes, helping teams develop great products and carries post-its and a sharpie wherever they go. It’s a tall order, but if you are up the challenge, then we’re looking for you.
This post is mostly for those of you already in Europe. I'm graduating with a BS in Human-Computer Interaction and a BA in Int'l Relations soon, and I'm really interested in just working in Europe for a little bit as a UX/Ix Designer. I have 1-2 years of design experience.
So those of you US citizens working in Europe right now, how did you end up there? How was the visa process?
I'm looking for resources on first finding a UX-related job abroad, and then information on how to do the entire legal process.
I'm a UI Engineer that have been working in Sophia for 2 years. I open this thread to ask you if you know some names of companies of the area to which I could send a CV. I'm interested to switch to a UX-oriented position, such as UX Designer, Information Architect, Usability specialist or similar and I saw there are people working in these design fields, but I can't find any job opening in Monster, LinkedIn, etc.
Thus, knowing some companies that might be interested in such a position would be really helpful.
I have an interview with a large pan-European technology company next week who are opening up a new role for a user experience architect. Reading between the lines in the job spec, the role also involves service design and some business analysis; this is something that I welcome. As a company that is opening up a new user experience architect role, what are the pertinent questions I should be asking to uncover what is planned for the future? I don’t want to be a UX team of one for the long-term.
Intercom is going really well for us. So much so that we need help. Our design team previously consisted of myself & Eoghan. But we can't give design or UI the time it deserves any more. We've recently hired a fantastic visual designer, and we're looking to pair him with a fantastic UX person. The role is pure UX, no clients, pitches, or proposals. You'll be working with our visual designer, myself and Eoghan (CEO) to make Intercom the most usable beautiful web application in the space.
I have recently been getting more employment traction than I have ever had before. I was wondering if you are experiencing the same? I am currently in the NYC area.
Is there any implications for this increase in hiring? I was just contacted by a recruiter for several mid-west opportunities at the same agency, willing to do a fly-in-fly-out contracting arragement. I am actively interviewing locally, but I do want to explore all avenues.
I am a prospective student on a specialization course in interaction design. My background is in a general design programme (with a focus on graphic design) where I have worked freelance with games and apps. What I am interested in is how competetive the job market is out there? The kind of position I would love to have after my specialization course is as a interaction designer at a digital agency preferably in Stockholm - Sweden, London, New York or San Francisco. If anyone of you have any insights regarding this I would be delighted to hear them :)
