The Joomla! User Experience Team is looking for Joomla! Users with leadership and UX skills to lead and co-lead the team.
The purpose of the JUX is to improve the usability of The Joomla! Project through extensive research and user testing, and to make recommendations to the relevant teams based on findings. The UX team works closely with Joomla! Developers to shape the evolution (design and development) of the Joomla! CMS and the Joomla.org properties.
The goal of the team is to create an intuitive experience for our users. The UX Team is committed to improving the usability of the Joomla! Platform (admin interface, the default templates and the Joomla.org websites).

- Coordinate and delegate the responsibilities of the JUX
- Oversee the day-to-day functions of the JUX
