User Research in Portugal

User Research in Portugal

Remote or lab-based user research in Portugal, with real customers and local, Senior UX Researchers

Portugal, which is officially known as the Portuguese Republic, was once Europe’s greatest power. Its capital city Lisbon, is the cultural and economic centre of the country and is a popular tourist destination due largely to its reputation for great food, music and sport. For anyone planning research in Portugal it is highly likely that it will be located in Lisbon where there are good research facilities and good internet speeds. It’s not a bad place to stay if you are observing!

About two thirds of Portugal’s population live in urban areas, split between industrial areas like Lisbon, Setúbal, and Porto, and coastal plains such as Minho. When it was the richest European country, its colonial empire stretched to Asia, Africa and South America. However, those richest were not invested in developing domestic infrastructure and so in the 19th & 20th centuries Portugal was one of western Europe’s poorest countries.

UX24/7 is a global design research agency that operates with our own team of Senior UX Researchers. All our Senior UX Researchers have been evaluated as part of their joining process to ensure they have the skills, capabilities and experience to deliver user research and UX research to the high standards we expect.

I worked with UX24/7 across a multitude of markets around Europe for UX projects while working at Samsung. UX24/7 provided deep and meaningful insights which we could work with at a European, HQ & market level work to improve the customer experience online and more importantly improve sales – Amy Vetter, Head of Consumer Experience, Samsung
