    Tamara Lopez Breit Establishing the UX Research Practice in a Digital Product Company

    We’ll discuss the evolution of user research within a company, and why becoming user-centric starts from inside. Tamara has been working at GetYourGuide for just over a year. She will share insights into her role, lessons learned and the constant drive within the company to put a human face on the people who use their products. According to the UX maturity level of your company, different changes and levels of expertise are required (that’s why this can last for years.) Addressing company culture is fundamental to success.

    Tamara Lopez Breit works as a UX researcher at GetYourGuide, being the first member of Research Team, she is establishing processes and advocating for research within the company. Previously, she worked as a UX consultant for agencies and startups in Europe and LATAM. She was a lecturer of UX at the university for 2 and a half years in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she is from.
