UX Designer Salary in SF Bay Area

UX Designer Job Description

UX Designers are professionals tasked with improving the user experience (UX) of a product. In order to effectively do their job, they rely on research conducted within the target market, to find out the various ways that a specific product can be improved. This may be achieved through focus groups, online surveys and questionnaires.

UX Designers may work alone or within a larger team, where specific roles are assigned to individual designers. During the early design phases, they may create prototypes for the planned product. They often work alongside developers, User Interface (UI) designers and graphic artists in ensuring that the final design is easy to use and attractive. While UX designers may work in almost any user-facing industry, they are more often used in the tech scene, where they work on improving the effectiveness of apps, websites and programs.
