UX Designer - Jason Castaneda

Why Harvey Nichols?

I wanted to work for an organisation that doesn’t have your typical IT department.  Harvey Nichols is certainly not typical, they are daring in delivery and playful in attitude.

Describe your current role and who you work with

Typically, I research on ways to improve the website by researching on the latest trends and looking at how users interact with the website. Working in the digital development team, we always push the boundaries where everyone is supportive.

What’s the best thing about working at Harvey Nichols?

The environment – working for a team who are passionate about making a change.

What’s your favourite part of your role?

Creating solutions for users to have a seamless user experience.

What gets you up in the mornings?

The drive of finding a solution the next day gets me up in the morning.

What’s the most exciting thing you’ve ever done in your role?

Getting my idea to be developed by the UI Designer and the Developers

Describe a typical day in your role

My typical day, well first of all, I like to start off with a strong cup of coffee and plan out the day. I research on different solutions for the website and how I could improve it. During lunch, we go to a popular restaurant we head to occasionally. I can usually hear someone saying Double Chicken Kebab… When it comes to the end of the day, a few of us go out for a drink or two.
