What is UX research?

UX research is a crucial part of the product design process.
UX research refers to the process of studying and understanding how users interact with a product, service, or engagement channel in order to design experiences that are people-focused. It can help a company understand their target audience and how they think, allowing them to gain valuable insights into the wants and needs of the customer base.
UX researchers build research methods and use those methods to study consumer behavior and preferences. They analyze the data generated from their research and report their findings to a broader design team.

The job positions are fewer than UX designers, and the hiring bar is very high.
