UX (user experience) designers are responsible for improving the user's experience of using a product, such as making it easier to use and more enjoyable. This typically applies to computer hardware or software.
A portfolio of previous work may be necessary to be hired for this position, and UX designers work with developers, analysts, and other designers to determine changes and preferences in the market. UX designers may design and create wireframes for products, as well as develop and test prototypes, and actual end-users are often used to determine whether a product can be used as intended. After testing is complete, modifications should be introduced and more testing will be carried out until the product reaches its best form. Much of this work is done on teams, though there are also individual responsibilities which include meeting time-constraints. After the product has been introduced to the market, it must then be evaluated for success and feedback from customers, and modifications may be made for future editions.
Experience in Adobe Suite, HTML, CAD and CSS is necessary for this position, and a bachelor's degree in graphic design or a computer-related field is generally required, though experience may be substituted for education in some cases. UX designers typically work full-time in an office, though some work on a freelance basis.
