Frequently asked questions

UX research is the analysis of users and their requirements to add context and insight into the process of designing their experience.

There are several reasons why now might be the time to hire a freelance ux researcher. This includes:

Time — Due to their experience, researchers are able to research and review user flows quickly and efficiently. So if you’re looking to improve your experience quickly, freelancers, due to their diverse experience, are able to move quickly as they may have worked on similar projects in the past and can bring some of those learnings to your project.

Skills/knowledge — UX researchers are well versed in the process of forming a series of questions that uncover pain points, needs, and motivations. Not only do they understand users’ needs, they can help generate ideas to solve their problems. Whilst being neutral and unbiased they help fill gaps and ask the right questions. They’re able to avoid assumptions and uncover underlying needs, something that’s hard to achieve if you’re attached to the product.

Communication — UX researchers work very closely with developers, so are able to keep a constant discussion across the development of a project. Not only do they understand the objectives from the developers perspective, they also have a good understanding of the users needs, so can help bring the two together.

Results driven —  A UX researcher invests their time to not only understand the users perspective, they make informed decisions based on data. Quantitative and qualitative data is increasingly becoming a key ingredient in usability and user-experience. With working on various projects, for various brands, freelancers are able to help bring the successes of their career to your project.

Freelance UX researchers have a wide variety of skills. The most common attributes include:

  • Excellent communication skills
