After few years of gaining invaluable experience working as a UX researcher and designer for various startups, I have finally made the resolute decision to embark on a journey as a self-employed freelancer in the realm of UX services. This decision was not made in haste, but rather a culmination of carefully observing the ever-evolving job climate in the tech industry. With the landscape becoming increasingly competitive and unpredictable, I realized the need for greater autonomy and the freedom to shape my own career trajectory. My experience in startups has equipped me with a diverse skill set and a deep understanding of the UX field, making me confident in my ability to provide valuable services to a wide range of clients. As I step into this new chapter, I am excited to bring my expertise to a broader audience while enjoying the flexibility and independence that freelancing affords. Presenting to you, Rice Cake Research.
