Overview

About NN/g:
Nielsen Norman Group (NN/g) is a UX consultancy trusted by leading organizations world-wide to provide reliable guidance on user experience. NN/g provides evidence-based UX insights in the form of research findings in articles, in-depth training, and consulting.

We’re a small, fully remote company (fewer than 40 people, currently). We believe deeply in our mission to help the world learn about UX, and enjoy working with our curious and passionate coworkers. Once or twice a year, we travel to a fun location to spend time together in-person and discuss ideas to improve our work and our company. (Our most recent offsite locations include Jackson Hole and San Diego.)

When we hire people, they tend to stick around for a while. Our average employee retention is 7 years.
