Dear Mr. Cooper,

I was excited to see [Tech company]’s open UX designer position on [LinkedIn] under section [‘Work at’]. I have been using the [app name] for years, and I believe that my experience can contribute to the functionality and user-friendliness of several integrated software products. In this cover letter, I will elaborate on my qualifications that can add value to your development team in Seattle, WA. I kindly ask you to consider this job application for the UX / UI designer position.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [William Rogers] and I have 5+ years of experience solving user problems and provide them with a positive product experience. I wasn’t actively looking for a job change, but I became interested after [Colleague] referred me to your open job posting. The vibrant working environment, my familiarity with [app name] and the UX operations listed in the vacancy is what makes me want to apply for this job opportunity. I am convinced that my expertise, resistance to stress and ability to work overtime will be an asset to your development team.

From 2015 to 2018, I worked as a UX designer at [Organization] in Sweden. My daily duties involved the development and implementation of multiple new user-facing software products, and the coordination of an efficient customer support portal. During those years, I managed to increase customer satisfaction by 27% whilst improving my HTML, CSS and jQuery coding skills. In my current role as UX designer at [Company], I collaborate with developers from other departments to improve the user experience. My success thus far is decreasing app load time by 30% and bounce rate by 15%. I received recognition for these results (see references).

Currently, I am seeking to obtain a new, challenging and growth oriented position in my field of interest. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my candidacy and demonstrate which functions and features require improvement. You can find more information about my work in the attached resume and portfolio. In case of any further questions, you can contact me on [000-0000-0000] or [Email address]. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards, 

William Rogers
