UX UI Design tests online – Earn an extra income working from home

There are a lot of opportunities online to extra cash daily and at the end of the month you can have something between U$ 100 – U$ 300.

However if you are a designer and if you want to work online, better be something related to design, right?

There are several “online jobs” regarding user experience tests, site tests, web design, bugs and apps.

Besides if you are already a digital designer UX – UI or want to learn more it is an interesting experience as a design tester you are at backstage, testing and learning also.

This sites are generally easy to enroll, in order to have a initial test, you must study guidelines and wait the test. In other sites you have to download a software to record screen and audio to perform testing.

The pay rate is good between U$ 10 – 20 for test, however at the beginning tests are not happening often, that’s a negative point. Visit the best sites below:

152 Remote Design Jobs from The Designers League TDL

cover photo, Nenhuma descrição de foto disponível.

This post is from “The Designers League” by Arsen Ibragimov and copy as it is there:

“During the period from December 2 to 8, I collected 152 vacancies from popular job boards like Glassdoor, Flex Jobs, We Work Remotely, and others, as well as from Facebook, Twitter and Reddit.
It takes about 4 hours a day to visit 78 sources that I prepared in advance.

👉Visit The Designers League Group at Facebook >> request access in the comments

How it works:

Click the link that I sent to you, request access, I accept it in 3 minutes and send an email notification to you that you gain access to the table and lately you will receive notifications with updates and new job positions.

You will be able to exit the table and unsubscribe at any time.

Why do you need this?

Let’s be honest, standard job boards – sucks! Look at the main differences between this list and those job boards that you could see:
  • No need to view all the job boards, I already did it for you;
  • No need to register on all job boards, just request access to the list by pressing one button;
  • On average, five job openings for designers per week are published on each job board. I collect them manually and publish hundreds of vacancies during the same time in one place;
  • Job boards refer to each other. I collect direct links to the CV submission page.

Why do I need this?

Access to the list is completely free. Every day I receive thanks for this list of work, so I continue to do so. Let’s see where this leads us.
Good luck in your search for a remote job!”
