There are no professional testers or “study junkies” in Testing Time's pool. Their members know that they can only take part in tests at a maximum rate of one per month and one per customer. They also validate candidates over the phone and let customers rate test users to guarantee a high-quality panel. That’s why Testing Time's online portal www.testingtime.comfrequently gets business from the likes of Zalando, Swisscom, Deloitte, UBS, AXA, Trivago and Heineken. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE EVENT Tuesday 25th September 2018 @ We Work, 1 Fore St Ave, London EC2Y 9DT With space for 200 at this event, we would like to invite you straight from work.

The UX Crunch is London’s largest user experience networking events company. User experience is one of the hottest debatable subjects within the digital world at the moment, with networking and learning key for UX professionals who are keen to develop their careers. In a contract-heavy market, it’s always great to network with hiring managers and meet potential connections that could help you secure your next contract. We approach our networking events in a unique way by hosting our events at various venues around London, showcasing the workplaces of some of the top user experience companies. By always including a stellar line up of industry experts with new and exciting topics of discussion, we aim to create a new phenomenon within digital networking; making cutting edge events and opening up possibilities of collaboration within the UX community.

Our Junior UX Crunch events offer the same top-notch industry insight but with a lower price point to encourage younger UX designers to get involved and see what the UX Crunch has to offer.

Our events often offer free drinks and food as well as some of the most inspirational user experience guest speakers in the industry. We welcome people who are looking to get in UX and find out more about the area. Recruiters and hiring managers are also welcome and we encourage jobs and opportunity networking in an ever-changing and evolving industry.

Host an event

We are always looking for major companies to host events. Hosting is free, however you will be expected to provide food and drink for the attendees as well as a space large enough to hold more than 60 people.

Hosting an event is a great way of getting exposure to a huge user experience audience. This helps promote your brand name, encourages people to join your organisation and gives you a great way of promoting to your clients/customers. Those hosting the UX Crunch can promote the event on their social media platforms to demonstrate support for the UX community and you take pride in your website’s usability.
