I noticed there is no dedicated thread to practicing UX in a startup company. And I believe this is the most challenging and unpredictable piece of UX. I would be very grateful if you post your stories here, what were your challenges at the beginning, what were the “fuckups”, what was a success. How did you achieve whatever you achieved. Did you use any methodologies? What was basically helpful to you while working for a startup. What was the copany building?
I’m working at a SaaS startup company since almost 5 months. And this journey was and still is a rollercoaster ride. Whatever I knew about UX, whatever I could read about UX turned out to be either not true, or not entirely working. I had to adopt a new approach, forget some things, learn other stuff. I am learning constantly and if there are people like me, they might also benefit from this thread and the knowledge you’ll share.
