Who am I?
I'm Thays, a UX Designer and Researcher based in Sweden. I like baking and cooking, playing board games with my friends and taking long walks with my dog. I also love working with technology. Here is some of my work.
Journey from Software Development to User Experience
My passion for technology is driven by its ability to improve people's daily lives. With a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering and experience working for leading companies such as Samsung as an Android Developer, I have collaborated with cross-functional teams to create exceptional products that cater to the needs of users. However, after eight years in software development, I decided to pivot my career to work closer to users as a UX Designer and Researcher. My technical expertise, analytical thinking, and problem-solving skills allow me to contribute to tech projects that tackle real-world problems and potentially make a positive impact on society.
