User Experience (UX) involves all interactions that a user has with a product, system or service. It sits at the intersection of research, design and engineering. The UX Designer performs user research, leverages it to create an effective design, and helps implement it into the final product. They focus heavily on usability, accessibility, and measurable outcomes. This is human-centered, data-informed design that assists both the users and the business in achieving their goals. UX work can be found in everything from websites, to software, to physical spaces.
