FAQ

How long does the application process usually take?

Application timelines can vary a lot depending on a lot of factors. Our goal is to get back to you within a week of your application to organize our introductory chat, where our HR manager will share more information about the next steps and estimated time of feedback.

My home isn’t ideal for an interview, what can I do?

We sometimes have the same struggle, so no worries! Luckily Google Meet, the platform we use for our interviews, has built-in backgrounds or blur modes you can use if you prefer to hide your background.

Do you offer feedback on applications?

We offer portfolio and performance evaluations if requested, and we always write personalized feedback on the work of those candidates who complete our challenge.

Does UX studio support remote work?

Yes, you can join UX studio remotely! To become a team member from another country, you have to be within four hours of the Central European time zone and have a reliable internet connection. When we have in-person events, such as retreats, we will ask you to join us. We will organize the trip for you; your only task will be to travel here to meet your team!

Does UX studio have an office?

We have a spacious dog-friendly office in the heart of Budapest. However, if you prefer working from home, you can do so, but we always recommend our team members to join us in the office every now and then to experience the great atmosphere we have here!

Is it possible to relocate to Hungary? Are there any relocation packages?

Yes, relocation is possible after your three-month-long probation period. We wait until then to make sure you are 100% confident in the position before you commit to moving between countries (and sometimes continents)! Our relocation package includes administrative and legal help from a relocation professional, financial aid for flights, and help with accommodation.

Is UX studio hiring for a specific project?

There are no designated projects at the time of the recruitment process. We have long-term collaborations and shorter projects with our clients. We only dedicate UX professionals to the projects once we are familiar with each other and know which collaboration will be the best match.

What does the onboarding process look like?

The first week at UX studio is a Product Design project week for everyone, regardless of your future position. This week you'll get more familiar with our processes and complete a short project while having intro sessions with many team members. This week's main purpose is to introduce you to your colleagues so you won't feel alone during your training period. From the second week onward, your position-related training begins with the guidance of your designated mentor.

How many projects do designers and researchers work on at the same time?

A designer only works on one project at a time, in close collaboration with a UX Researcher. Depending on the scope and size of the project, more designers could be allocated on a project.

The whole work environment is very supportive. You can practice new techniques or methods, try out new tools, or if you have the ambition, you can try yourself out in a new field.

At UX studio, there is a strong focus on being an inclusive environment, which starts with the onboarding and no one is left behind afterwards either. My personal favourite is the company retreat, where you have the opportunity to meet everyone in person and get to know each other better.

The most exciting thing about UX studio is having a great bunch of peeps around to get insights and thoughts, and the openness where any questions can be asked. A team atmosphere that isn’t forced, so whether it’s company events or outside of work events, peeps are around.
