Meet the team is a series about our team at Usersnap. Get to know the people behind our tools and discover what it’s like to work at Usersnap.
A while ago, we included Axure RP in our list of great free wireframe tools for web designers & developers. That’s because Axure is a fantastic program that allows you to easily create wireframes and prototypes for web and desktop applications. What it lacks though is a robust commenting tool and the functionality that is offered by Usersnap. We think that Usersnap can fill a gap in the Axure experience that is commonly met with frustration by many designers.
In the following article we will explore why this is the case and give you a step-by-step guide on how to get the most out of Axure by pairing it with Usersnap.
Web development continues to be one of the hottest industries around, and it’s not about to change anytime soon. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of web developers is projected to grow 27 percent from 2014 to 2024, which is much faster than the average for all occupations.
With that in mind, we thought we’d put together a list of essential skills that every web developer should have. Knowing what to improve is the starting point to achieving greatness, so we hope you find some useful information in this post.
Meet the CTO is a new series about CTOs, their daily lives, roles, and responsibilities. In our second edition, we talk to Susanne Kaiser from Just Social.
Coding and music go together like fries and ketchup, like peanut butter and jelly, like weekends and sleeping in. Our dev team at Usersnap loves their music. And their headphones, too.
Studies have shown that nine out of ten people are more productive when listening to music. Classical music and video game soundtracks for instance are said to have the biggest impact on productivity, since they avoid creating too much of a distraction.
But, coders being coders, they write their own rules. And, they are very particular about their own headphones as well (and not those plasticky thingies that get shipped with your iPhone).
With this in mind, we were wondering what our developers are listening to these days (and what tech this music is coming out of). So we did a (virtual) tour of the office and asked them about about their music preferences. Spotify-Playlists included!

Meet the CTO is a new series about CTOs, their daily lives, roles, and responsibilities. In our first edition, we talk to Morten Primdahl from Zendesk.
It’s a sad fact that the tech industry is still vastly dominated by men. Currently, only around 25% of all tech jobs are held by women. The number is even smaller for management roles, with only 14% of all CTO positions in tech companies belonging to women. You’d think with all the innovative products, ideas and technologies launched every day, the tech industry would have figured out gender equality. Well, it hasn’t.
As technology keeps advancing into every aspect of our lives at a fast pace, this is something that has to change. Besides, with technology being one of the biggest and most future-proof industries out there, women are being left out of promising job opportunities.
It is more important than ever to make women seen and female voices heard. Today we want to present you 7 female CTOs that are leading the way for women in tech and that everyone should follow in 2017 and beyond.
There’s nothing worse than feeling you are wasting your time. Imagine putting all your time, energy, and resources into hiring someone and then they quit within a few months. You know those target posters you can put on the wall that say ‘Bang Head Here’? I’ve needed one many times. Hiring and retaining good developers is a cumbersome business. You do it, but sometimes all you can do is shake your head and stare at that poster.
Over the years, I’ve found that hiring developers and bringing them into an agile team requires them being supported by an agile talent management system and excellent onboarding. In fact, new employees who go through a structured onboarding program are 58% more likely to be with the organization after three years. If you want to wrap your head around how important this is just imagine the financial and emotional impact of replacing people in your team every year.
