Emma, thanks for the awesome article. The description of your role seems like the job I'd like to have someday.
How is your interaction with other front-end developers that rely on your guidelines, style guides and so on? Do they have a say or participate in some level on your flow?
They 110% participate because they're my main stakeholders ;)
Thanks for your answer!
My overall feeling about this is being stuck, though. I can’t seem to figure out how to fit that expertise in my team. We don’t have designers. The team decides together the best solution to build in our applications, we pretty much vote for it.
So how do you think, in this scenario, would a UX Engineer fit? If I look at your example, you mention being the translator between design and pure front-end, does that mean I’d need to take the role of designer along with UX?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
