UX / UI Product Design Job Titles & Salaries In 2023
Over the past few years the job market has experienced an increase in demand for Product Designers.
Over the past few years, the job market has experienced increased demand for Product Designers (also called “UX / UI Designers”). This is because Product Designers have a broad skill set that extends across both UX (user experience) and UI (user interface) design. In other words, companies can benefit from having just one designer instead of multiple.
“Oftentimes, what happens is when you apply for a UX job, the company will expect UI design. So there is a lot of handholding – because what companies want to hire is one person. If that company has one headcount, they want that headcount to do anything and everything.” – Bani Phul-Anand, Lead Instructor, Design
While there has been an uptick in Product Design roles, there are still plenty of more specialized roles across UX and UI design. So what are some common job titles and what are the average salaries?
