How to recruit and hire a User Experience Designer
While the perfect color palette or the most sublime button shading or myriad of other design features play an important role in any product’s success, user interface design is not enough. Customer engagement and retention requires a strategic plan that attempts to measure, quantify and ultimately create a complete satisfying user experience on both an emotional and functional level — from initial contact to transaction to ongoing relationship.
Developing such a strategic plan is often performed by the User Experience Designer. Drawing on research, workflow analysis and other analytical techniques, the UX Designer will create a satisfying or compelling experience for users of a product, service or point of contact. The UX Designer tries to anticipate user needs and provide experiential solutions as each need arises.
Successful candidates for an open UX Designer position should have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, as well as impeccable artistic and creative talent regarding user interfaces and product design. This is a challenging combination of skills to find and recruit.
