I’m a Senior UX Researcher with an academic background in psychology and education. My natural curiosity and desire to understand human behavior is what drives me as a UX researcher. Throughout my career, I have led UX research efforts on product teams across a variety of industries including education and enterprise software. I have a strong belief that successful products stem from an understanding of the people whom we design for. I am driven by the satisfaction of helping businesses achieve their goals, through contributing to this understanding of users.

Molly Rempe
AnswerLab, Senior UX Researcher

Hi there. I am a Senior UX Researcher at AnswerLab. I started my career building hardware products, moved jobs to tackle the big question of "what should we build" in a software innovation hub, and now I'm conducting rapid remote research for a UXR consulting firm. Although the types of products, the depth of research questions, and the project deadlines have varied during this time, I've always been passionate about bringing users (and non-users) into the process.

I'm excited to learn from you during Boulder Startup Week!
