Jayne Spottswood is a UX Architect – or “UX Swiss Army Knife,” depending who you ask – at Paylocity, which develops industry-leading, cloud-based payroll and human capital management software solutions for medium-sized organizations. A few years after earning a communication degree in college, and working as a PR professional, Jayne could no longer resist her calling to create experiences that would help users get things done. To that end, she completed the HCI program at DePaul, and has since provided UX architecture, design, and research work for organizations ranging from small non-profits to large-scale enterprises. In Jayne’s free time, she serves an IxDA Chicago Local Leader, seeks out karaoke opportunities, and plays video games featuring anthropomorphic space rangers.
