  • What does UXR mean?
    UXR is an acronym that stands for 'user experience research'.
  • What does a user experience researcher do?
    At the heart of innovation is a question. "How might we...?" or "What if...?" The people who explore these questions—and stumble inevitably into the answers—are user experience (UX) researchers. UX researchers help companies prioritize their users or customers (over features or business requirements). They design and conduct studies to answer questions like: Who are our users? What motivates them? What do their lives, homes, careers, and dreams look like? What do our users need? What are their unmet needs? How useful and usable are our products or services? What should we change or improve? What should the future of our product be?
