The UXD team helps make Red Hat products easy—and enjoyable—for all people to use. Our global team of researchers, designers, content designers, and developers work together to bridge the technical world to the human world with intuitive and approachable product experiences.

  • Plan, strategize, and execute the PatternFly design experience to define the look, feel, and function of all Red Hat products.
  • Regularly collaborate across UXD Research, Design, and Development teams to ensure that PatternFly designs are built, scaled, maintained, and implemented in ways that serve users.
  • Connect various design teams and efforts across Product, Brand, and Digital to work towards a shared design language and create alignment across website, marketing, brand, and product design experiences.
