I'm a UI Engineer that have been working in Sophia for 2 years. I open this thread to ask you if you know some names of companies of the area to which I could send a CV. I'm interested to switch to a UX-oriented position, such as UX Designer, Information Architect, Usability specialist or similar and I saw there are people working in these design fields, but I can't find any job opening in Monster, LinkedIn, etc.
Thus, knowing some companies that might be interested in such a position would be really helpful.

This is a bit of a Hail Mary, but has anyone come across user testing or studies on the use of bezel gestures (i.e. swiping in from the left bezel onto the screen, or Microsoft's Edge UI)? I'm guessing MS must have done some testing but my Googling has proven useless in finding anything of use.
I'm trying to determine just how discoverable these types of gestures are, and trying to make a case for adding some kind of on-screen UI to surface functionality relegated to a bezel menu.
With the popularization of products and services characterized by user experience (abbreviated as UX thereafter) among customers, UX has become a hit in the profession so much so that there is now an enormous demand for UX talents even though most enterprises have already employed UX professionals or even established related departments. The ever widening gap between supply and demand of UX-related professionals, however, has propelled the engagement of many a non-professional in UX and the establishment of UX as a major in colleges and universities.
