About the team: 

The UX Foundation organization aims to help product teams across Postman to execute on their roadmap and build great user experiences & interfaces quickly & reliably by providing tooling, support, feedback and education. The org is composed of three independent squads; Design Systems, Application UX and UX Maturity. Each of these teams focusses on certain key aspects of the UX practice in Postman, both in terms of design and execution. The UX Foundation also incubates a budding Ops practice that defines UX onboarding, tooling and advocacy both for designers and developers across Postman.
