From Finders to Builders

A blog on how to build a research practice from scratch. Thoughts, tips and tricks on everything UXR and ReOps.

From Finders to Builders

What is this space about?

Conducting research is one thing. Building a research practice is another. It requires a very different set of skills and knowledge. One requires a Finder, the other calls for a Builder.

1 out of 3 new UXR roles are the first ones in a company and many folks, despite being pros in conducting research, struggle when having to build the infrastructure they neeed. That's why this space exists.

I will be sharing stories, tips and thoughts on how to build a research practice from scratch, as well as other things UXR and ReOps related.

There's no set cadence and there's definitely going to be many guests.

👋 Hey! I'm Julian

I'm a UX Researcher specialized in Research Operations (ReOps), founder of the180 and based in Barcelona, Spain.

Whether in-house or working with clients, I repeatedly found myself building Research teams from scratch as the first Researcher in the team.

This experience helped me develop a real knack for infrastructure, so I decided to fully specialize myself in ReOps. I like to talk about this as my switch "from Finder to Builder".

If you are going through the amazing journey of building a research practice from scratch, join me as I share tips, thoughts and anecdotes on UX Research and Research Operations.

The time of the builders has come!
