Hello, I'm Patrick Ward.

I'm a writer, designer, and Senior UX Researcher at GoDaddy. I've been helping companies build remote research programs for the past six years.

about me

I explore the user experience.

My role gives me the opportunity to talk with people all over the world and learn about their lives, their challenges, and their hopes.

I joined Over in 2019 to build on their existing UX research efforts. In February 2020, GoDaddy acquired Over and the entire team, and I now spend my time talking with small business owners and investigating GoDaddy’s mobile app strategy.

Before joining Over, I worked as a QA Designer at Flinto and Lead Product Researcher at Buffer. I’ve been working remotely since 2013, when I got my first job in tech working at ThemeTrust as a WordPress support agent.

I write about remote research, interesting books I’m reading, and the science of curiosity. I also share my experience creating an audiobook series from the ground up.

Some topics I'm interested in.

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality will continue to open up many exciting new ways of telling stories and I am currently trying to learn all that I can about it.

Writing

I have been creating stories for as long as I can remember. I’m currently writing an audiobook and plan to share every step along the way!

Interstellar Archaeology

By applying lessons from studying our own world, we can start to think how we might look for the physical remains from civilizations on other planets.

Design & No Code

The combination of a solid design foundation and the use of no code tools means that it is now so much easier to create and test new ideas.

Nice to meet you!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey there! My name’s Patrick Ward, and I am a user experience researcher currently working at Over . I’ve been working remotely for the past ten years and am currently building audio shows at  Patchworld.

I worked at Buffer for several years as the Lead Product Researcher. Over the years I’ve been lucky to work at places like Flinto, the National Park Service, ThemeTrust, and Parnassus Books in Nashville.

My background is in archaeology, and I love learning about how people live, work, and play in different cultures. If you made it this far, you should say hi to me on Twitter.
