From Application to Interview: How to get a Great UX Job

Jon Fox
Director of User Experience / Mobile Interaction Design, Love It, LLC

In Jon's own words, "Creating a world that is simple and usable, I design mobile, tablet and web products that bridge the gap between user experience, visual design, business strategy and technical implementation to create a synonymous brand ecosystem across screens.

My background in UX began with interactive entertainment design at Paramount Pictures and grew into a focus on designing simple, innovative and feature rich products. I have a passion for bringing technology solutions to everyday users and developing products that make a difference for people."

About our venue host & sponsor:

We’re the only medical office software makers dedicated to serving the small medical practice. We’re a driven group of really dedicated, really upbeat people (stop by our office any time and see) inspired by the belief that, with the right tools and support, small practices can do big things. We’ve built our company around doctors, their staff, and the medical billing services that support them. We design our products to help them run their business so simply and intuitively that it frees the doctors and other care providers to do the important work of patient care.
