When you think about the rapid pace of technology growth these days, we are exposed to an incredible range of options available to us in the form of mobile apps, software, content, etc. With a touch to your iPhone or a click over to your website, you can view the incredibly wide variety of user interface options that have been developed by companies like Apple, Salesforce, SAP and others that employ creative professionals to develop the best experience for end users.
With this proliferation of “user-focused challenges,” it’s no wonder that there is a growing need for user interface designers who can translate these issues into solutions. These individuals must not only possess great design skills but they must also be able to understand and synthesize business problems, have a strong understanding of the technology to be employed and effectively communicate with stakeholders as they navigate the challenges and design solutions to solve them.
So what does this mean for those seeking UX/UI design positions? Jobs!
Because top-performing companies are recognizing how critical great design is for their products and that it has a substantial, measurable impact on their revenue, we have seen a growing demand for design professionals.
In a recent article by Bloc, they mention that, “UX Design is #1 out of 7 in-demand careers for design and planning, with job growth up to 30%.” This also means that many more professionals are attempting to break into the field by signing on for training either in the form of certificate programs or “design bootcamps” that provide short, intensive training sessions.
It’s also critical for job seekers to understand the various roles that fall into the User Centered Design category. At Eliassen Group, for example, we hire creative professionals for roles such as:
- User Experience Architect
- Web/Graphic Designer
- UX/UI Developer
- Information Architect
- Front End Developer
