3. User experience (UX) designer

UX designers work to make products, processes and services seamless, enjoyable and intuitive for users. They think about how the product feels, how users will use it.

This career involves tons of out-of-the-box thinking, creative intuition and a natural appreciation for smooth design.

4. User interface (UI) designer
