On a more holistic level, you are eager to push the boundaries of digital innovation by design and research every day and you express this to both your team members and the clients. At wearereasonablepeople, we love to challenge ourselves and each other. This is no problem to you. You are your own biggest critic; you know this is the way to perfection.

  • Briefing and guiding junior and medior UX researchers with similar competencies, providing training and support as and where necessary.
