UX Job Titles Explained

UX Job Titles Explained

When it comes to user experience (UX) professionals, there are four main job titles: UX researcher, UX designer, UX Writer, and UX engineer. Here’s a quick breakdown of each role:

UX Researchers

As the name suggests, UX researchers focus on conducting research to understand users’ needs, wants, and behaviors. This research is then used to inform the design of products and services. UX researchers typically have a background in psychology, human-computer interaction, or a related field.

UX Designers

UX designers are responsible for creating the actual user experience. This includes everything from designing the user interface (UI) to developing user flows and prototypes. UX designers need to have strong visual design skills and be able to think creatively to solve problems.

UX Writers

UX writers are responsible for creating the text that appears in the user interface. This includes everything from error messages to onboarding instructions. UX writers need to be able to write clearly and concisely, and they must also have a good understanding of the user experience.

UX Engineers

UX engineers are the people who turn UX designs into reality. They take the design files from UX designers and turn them into code that can be implemented on a website or app. To do this, they need to have strong engineering skills and be proficient in coding languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Businesses typically hire UX engineers with a bachelor’s degree in computer science, software engineering, or a related field.
