The work of a User Experience Designer (UX Designer) in digital is a whole range of possibilities and competences. UX digital is everything that affects a user’s interaction with a given digital product, from problem recognition to the implementation of new solutions. It is a field that touches upon aspects of psychology, sociology, aesthetics, computer science, knowledge of new technologies and prototyping tools.

If you have passion, understand people, are interested in giving value and looking for answers to their needs, not only the obvious ones, you will find yourself in this role perfectly. You create a product which will be used by satisfied users. A very cool job in the field of innovation and new technologies.
