UX designers for hire
GrowTal connects you with user experience (UX) designers who can help you improve the experience people have when they visit your website, shop for products, download an app, sign up for a subscription, and complete the checkout process. The main responsibility of a UX designer is to make a website or product more useful for your intended audience. A UX designer focuses almost exclusively on digital properties as opposed to physical or print materials. Great UX designers are also skilled researchers, interviewers, and problem solvers.
How can a UX designer help your business?
A skilled UX designer can evaluate the current state of your website or product, collect feedback, and make recommendations and updates that create a better experience for future users. Web designers are incredibly versatile and can fill the role of project manager, workshop facilitator, UX tester, and creative innovator. They can create wireframes, persona boards, prototypes, and public-facing designs. A UX designer can help you:
- Perform user research
- Create personas
- Build wireframes and mockups
- Create product prototypes
- Design new website pages
- Improve in-app experiences
- Map the user journey
- Establish information architecture for a product
A UX designer can also help you decide how a product should work and give you recommendations from real feedback they’ve gathered from users.

Who should hire a UX designer?
GrowTal places top UX designers and web developers at companies of all sizes and across many industries. Companies that hire web designers typically do so for a few reasons:
- They don’t have the time, budget, or need to hire a full-time UX or web designer.
- They have an immediate team or project need that requires a skilled designer.
- They need someone who can take rough ideas and bring them to life through designs.
- They need regular access to an expert with deep knowledge and experience running point on strategy, workshops, and execution.
Why hire a UX designer through GrowTal?
Finding qualified UX designers and web designers is not easy. The biggest reason why is because UX designers have different specialties and levels of experience. Some focus solely on in-app experiences and others on top-of-funnel marketing websites.
You can waste a lot of time writing a job description, interviewing candidates, checking references, and onboarding your final pick only to find out that they didn’t actually have the right knowledge or experience needed for your project.
GrowTal eliminates these headaches and more by owning the entire process for you. The UX and web designers who join our network are qualified on paper, but we don’t just take their word for it—we go the extra mile to ensure they can design, think, and act strategically to solve the challenges businesses like yours face on a daily basis.
How we source UX and web designers
We find talent through our own network.
Our team is well-connected in the marketing industry, and we’ve worked with and for a lot of talented people in past jobs. We regularly ask industry friends, former coworkers, and past employers to introduce us to the best UX designers they’ve worked with.
This puts us in a unique position to quickly connect businesses in need with people we personally know and trust. The ease of our model also allows us to bring highly experienced professionals into our network who are working full-time jobs and might otherwise never think to take on contract work.
Getting access to these types of design experts is incredibly difficult without a partner like GrowTal.
Our process for pre-vetting UX designers
We take every person we meet through a rigorous pre-vetting process before deciding whether or not to add them to our network and make them available to clients.
Here’s how the vetting process works when we’re evaluating UX and web designers:
Reputation & Resume Evaluation
We evaluate the reputation, resume, and writing samples of the person being considered to better understand their experience and past performance.
Initial Gut Check Conversation
We perform an initial discovery call to hear more from the freelancer. We can usually tell within a few minutes if they will be a good fit for the type of work and quality we and our clients expect.
Deeper Experience-Based Interview
We take design candidates through deeper questions to understand their approach to design and user experience also to spend time evaluating their problem-solving skills, communication abilities, and overall professionalism. In addition, we take a closer look at their portfolio to get a feel for how they have added value when working with other companies in the past.
Final Evaluation by an Industry Expert
After the interview is complete, we gather our notes, meet as a team, and leave it up to one of our subject matter experts to decide if the candidate is a good fit for the GrowTal network.
