Curious as how to transition to a higher paying role design in Tech? I have been doing brand work and really tap into technology myself but not sure where to start, as my body of work doesn’t have much tech-related pieces to show.

Currently at $70k but feels like with what I can do under time constraints, I worth twice of that tbh. Because my output is consistently steady while carving out time to support my peers.

Much appreciated and thanks all in advance!

Also in this same position and finally started interviewing with some tech companies. No one (yet) in my interviews has asked me to show “tech work” just more about process and systems in play. I would say that was more important.

I say start applying to tech jobs and seeing where you stand on salary and go from there.

As a way to get some product experience and bridge the gap to a tech company, have you considered working at a full service agency such as ueno? It’s an agency but they do product design for clients.
