Just keeping it real, with a background in business, Spanish, and psychology. 


I'm a UX Designer who thoroughly enjoys the logical and creative aspects of UX design. I value inclusivity and strive to incorporate this into my design choices.

I worked as a user experience designer in the physical space of Brooklyn Brewery's hospitality department for over six years. This greatly lends itself to my design thinking in the digital space.

Currently, I design for Upped Events working closely with the product owner designing projects ranging from mobile (website and app) to desktop and tablet. 

I also collaborate in the research and design of Troo, an ethical social media app. I work alongside one other UX designer, the project manager, product manager, UX researcher, and engineer.

When not designing, I enjoy yoga and running, listening to podcasts, prefer spending time with animals just a little bit more than humans, and eating with chopsticks.

What do people have to say about me?

"Jess is a strong team leader and an effective problem solver. She is adept at coordinating efforts between departments and develops great working relationships with co-workers along the way. She is solution-oriented and dependable, assisting team members where needed and is highly effective at executing her duties, bringing all projects and team efforts to completion in a timely manner."

~Former Brooklyn Brewery Co-Worker

"Jess was a design student of mine for 5 months. She was a pleasure to work with because of her interest in learning, openness to feedback, and positive attitude. Over the course of our time together I saw huge improvements in her Figma design skills and critical UX thinking. Any team would be lucky to have her!”

“I have worked with Jess Tabac as part of the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center’s Community Advisory Board for four years.  She is intelligent, reliable, honest, hardworking, and dependable.  In this work, she has had to work with a diverse group of community members to improve programs and services at a Federally Qualified Health Center.  She is insightful and thoughtful in her language and feedback, she works well in group settings and can be counted on to deliver what she promised.  I would highly recommend working with Jess in any capacity”.
