What is UX design?

The user experience can make or break a product or service for a company. Now, UX designers create powerful UX designs to ensure that customers remain at the forefront of business to spur growth and improve customer lifetime value. It's a blend of product management and design; UX teams provide deliverables in the form of research, suggestions, overhauls, and innovations.

UX professionals test and retest the usability of products and services, providing product teams with valuable insight into the product lifecycle. The UX process is a growing field for hiring, and companies actively seek UX leaders that can build the UX strategy the company needs to deliver real value.
