Vice President of User Experience

Julie Mathers

As Vice President of User Experience, I am responsible for leading a cross-functional team of designers and researchers focused on transforming customer and employee experiences in our software. I partner closely with product management, engineering, sales, marketing, and client services to ensure we are crafting simple, easy, and meaningful experiences that delight our users.

With a career spanning over two decades in the tech industry, I have held executive design leadership roles in high-growth global enterprise software companies such as Citrix, Cvent, Wrike, and SAP SuccessFactors. My expertise lies in transforming design strategy, vision, and experiences to consumer-grade standards for business software products, particularly in the realms of events and hospitality, human capital management, and social and collaboration.

I hold a bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University and have a specialized background in human factors design—where art and science meet design for technology. I reside in Maryland with my two teen daughters and a Bengal cat. Beyond my professional endeavors, I enjoy live music, while my personal passion revolves around integrative wellness and nutrition, which I actively combine with career coaching.

I am so excited and proud to be part of the Paylocity culture. This is a culture dedicated to its people and delivering the best customer experience to our customers. I love being part of a culture that fosters collaboration, where diverse perspectives help us create innovative solutions and collective success.
