All of these companies are hiring in UX design

18 Jun 2018642 Views

No matter how sophisticated your software, it will be all be for naught if the UX is lacking. Knowing this, these companies are recruiting in the areas of UX design, UI design and front-end development.

Every company is looking for superstars who can innovate and produce the best, most efficient code to suit the required purpose.

Yet creating great code is not just about knowing a variety of languages or being able to weave sophisticated yarns in the back-end. Indeed, if the user interface is clunky, you can’t really say that your product truly succeeds. It’s such a pity because a difficult-to-navigate website can put people off what is an otherwise wonderful product, like a diamond covered in soot.

The top tech companies are aware of how imperative the user experience (UX) really is, and these companies in particular are currently recruiting for professionals in front-end development, UX design and UI design.

Oath

Oath, formerly known as AOL, is a subsidiary of Verizon Communications. It serves as the digital content arm. It is the parent company of beloved websites such as HuffPost, Tumblr, Yahoo and TechCrunch.
