If they're using the *code*, then "user" or "developer." If
they're using the finished product (site, application, or results
thereof), then "end-user," "customer," "visitor," or "subscriber" work
just fine. Ultimately, the term "end-user" signifies a bookend-like
link in the chain, such as a subscriber; the opposite bookend would be
the producer or creator, with connecting links being the publisher,
provider, distributor, perscriptionist, reseller, and so forth.

Overall, no. If it's going to be user-facing and not just systems
interpretation (automation, AI, et cetera), then I leave that up to
the UX folks. I work on the functionality and logic, they work on the
flow and presentation.
