Google User Experience (UX) is made up of multi-disciplinary
teams of UX Designers, Researchers, Writers, Content Strategists,

people who use our products to inspire and inform design. We
collaborate closely with each other and with engineering and
product management to create industry-leading products that deliver
value for the people who use them, and for Google's businesses.
