Hi, I'm
Joshua Bartz.

I build teams, refine strategies, champion accessibility, and create "yes-and" designs to breathe life into life-changing software.

Currently

I'm making software more inclusive.

I'm consulting on products that improve lives. I'm also building this website and teaching myself front-end web development as I go.

Say hello! Shoot me an email!

Home of the long-form case study


I can't help but write giant case studies. Each is a tedious and meticulous labor of love. Check out my freshly minted study on making audit logs for humans.


Don't worry, more are on the way!

Previously
2019 - 2021

I led product design for Jamf Now.

Jamf Now is an Apple-centric mobile device management platform for small businesses without IT and InfoSec backgrounds. I built user experience roadmaps and shipped a new subscription tier with refreshed Mac, iOS, and web apps.

2017 - 2019

I was a design generalist at Jamf.

Jamf helps organizations succeed with Apple. I implemented accessibility standards and put together strategy for a full redesign of Self Service on macOS, iOS, and iPadOS, consolidated more than 150 duplicate patterns and rearchitected Jamf Nation, and helped champion the start of Jamf's UX research practice and design system.

2012 - 2016

I got my start at Code42.

Code42 protects the world's data. I established a user experience practice by leveraging customer support ticket metadata. I redesigned key data management and recovery workflows, and I co-conducted internal usability tests to protect the company's intellectual property. I am still an internal meme.

But also

I write on occasion.

I'm talking about projects that aren't quite case studies, ideas learned in code, and hot-takes on design and ethics. Maybe also music, food, and life.

Just for fun

I devour media.

I'm reading Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson and building a Fall 2022 playlist on Spotify. Check out some older playlists.
