Yup, I am finally ready for a step forward in my career and I am looking for a Senior UX job in London, which I consider the most advanced UX market in Europe. So, if you know of a position that might be suitable, please contact me.
Need more info about me? Check out some projects I worked on until 2011 and my LinkedIn profile. I have a portfolio update (2012-2015) available upon request.
These last years I have been working at Infojobs, Spain’s leading job board (part of the huge online classified’s group Schibsted). I’ve been focusing on mobile, both native and responsive web design, and I led the design of the succesful InfoJobs Android App. If you’re looking for somebody with good mobile/multiplatform chops I may be who you are looking for.
I think that the other word that summarises my last years would be focus. I’ve been focusing on outcomes, on learning, on creating shared understanding, on designing how things work based on quick & cheap research and then iterating… I’ve probably been influenced by Lean, a methodology I really stand for.
My personal motto these last years has been: Am I working on the most important task, the one that is most critical, the one that offers the best return? If I am not, I am wasting resources and have to focus on it.
Yes, I owe myself a couple articles on whether designers should be able to code (not exactly earth-shattering) and air crashes and their UX implications (hopefully this one will be more original 8-) ), but they will have to wait: this upcoming weekend I am attending the first edition of UX Spain, which will be a nation-wide meeting for UX professionals in Spain.
I have been thinking about trying to create some kind of small scale meeting for UX professionals here in Barcelona for some time; there are quite some UX people around, and I think we should have some hardcore UX community event of sorts, more focused on spreading knowledge and thoughtful discussions (yep, I am jealous of the fantastic-looking UK and USA ones that I am hearing about on the Internet)than the usual “I-am-looking-for-work-and-networking” teaser-like meetings. I am hoping I will meet some like-minded people at UX Spain and maybe we could finally kick-start my idea?
Anyway, If you are attending UX Spain and would like to talk about UX and its fascinating implications feel free to contact me! just say “Hi!” and I’ll be glad to share stories and thoughts. If you’re just into mindlessly adding some more contacts to your LinkedIn account, I might not be THAT interested.
Finally. My User Experience blog is back online in a new incarnation.
It’s been quite a while since the last update on my previous blog at WordPress.com. I stopped updating because the WordPress.com hosted platform was quite limiting, and I wanted to be able to “play” with my blog as a way of practicing my front-end coding skills.
After watching a lot of Chris Coyier’s screencasts (highly recommended, the guy knows HTML/CSS/Wordpress upside-down), I ended up purchasing some hosting and domains so I could install the whole WordPress package and toy with it.
Instead of going straight for my new blog I took the time to create a site for my girlfriend (she’s into education and needed a site to advertise her services) which is Aulaestudi.cat (in Catalan), and a little personal project, queordenadorcomprar.com (in Spanish), a pc-hardware site mostly for toying with SEO. This helped me understand WordPress, SEO & SEM a little bit better.
Now, after working a little adapting the standard WordPress’ “Twenty Eleven” theme into something that expresses myself better (I like the “wireframe” look… I was thinking about subtitling this blog as “My life as a wireframe” for a while), I am ready to start blogging again. There’s a lot of stuff I have learned lately, and a lot of exciting UX-related stuff going on, so I will try to write shorter articles but more often.
So, stay tuned for more updates very soon!
