Hi everyone,

Nice to meet you!

Where in the world are you?
I’m from Lisbon, Portugal.

What stage of your career are you at?
Currently I’m working has an software developer for more than 12 years now, and I’m eager to do a change career to the magic world of UX. :smiley:

What are your current challenges?
I’m trying to figured out how do I make the change. I’m still very new to the UX world and I’m overwhelm by the amount of information that I’ve found related to this field.

What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
I think that during my career I was always intrigue by the fact that a lot of companies don’t apply UX Design processes in their products and that’s why I’ve started to wonder why. I’ve always like to know the why and how things are made and try to understand how the user interacts with the product. So, I think UX Design is ideal to me. So here I am in this new crazy dream. :wink:

Cats or dogs?
I’m more of a cat person, but I like dogs. :slight_smile:

Cheers, João

Right now I’m in charge of the corporate web department of the company, precisely I’m a full stack developer with a strong orientation to usability and behavioral interaction.

I’m looking for the metrics that create the bridge between behavioral analysis and statistical data, and make them legible and analysable.
My goal is to understand how to make communication between different subjects linear.

It makes me happy and satisfied to see that people are happy using a working tool and that consequently creates results defined in the design phase

Where in the world are you?

Northern New Jersey, USA. I know you are picturing city, but I actually live in a town rural enough that they don’t deliver the mail.

What stage of your career are you at?

This is my 3rd career. I used to do ocean modeling, which is basically scientific visualization. Then I was a theater professional with a specialty in actor-created physical comedy. I just finished an MI program with an Informatics and Design. I’m working part-time creating a prototype visual search system for the Dodge Poetry Foundation Archive and looking for full-time work.

What are your current challenges?

I’m unsure how to find the “right” job. I get contacted by lots of recruiters, but without being able to check out the company directly it’s hard to tell. The job boards (Monster, etc.) also seem to be flooded by recruiters. Are all companies going through recruiters now? Or have I just not found the right in? I’d also like help with my resume and portfolio.

What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?

Interviewing users and determining their needs and prototyping.

Cats or dogs?

Cats for sure. I have a knack for choosing cats who will sit with me all the time-- but can take care of themselves if I don’t come home. :slightly_smiling_face:
