Ciao! I'm Alessio and I am the Users First's host

About Alessio

I am a UX Designer in my mid 20's, who has been travelling the world while working remotely

Starting out wasn't easy, and after months of studies, reading books and networking, I landed my first role in UX and decided to open a podcast so I could grow my network and keep learning.

Since my first role, I have been handling my career triumphantly, learning from the smartest people in the field, and giving that knowledge back to my audience. While I have been inspiring thousands of designers through my podcast, I had the privilege to assist new UX Designers in landing their first job and see them break into the field.

My goal is to help you realize your dream of working in tech! Let's get you a job now!

The higher the levels, the higher the rewards!
