Asterisk because in my case the User Experience is either "car doesn't crash and burn + car doesn't burn" or "car brakes when depressing the brake pedal", so I did answer in a very theoretical situation where I have to work on a application with actual UI/UX.

When I did work on user facing applications they were already on the market so design phase was already thrice over, and I suppose this holds true for the majority of software developers. At least in my experience the chance to write something from the design phase is very low, it's usually maintaining / expanding / refactoring something that's already out there in the wild.
