Employment

  • Product Designer

    2015 - PRESENT
    Toptal
    • Worked with 30+ clients from all over the world spanning a wide variety of industries.
    • Took part in Toptal Projects—which consists of teams assembled and managed by Toptal for clients —as well as some minor Toptal internal projects.

  • Product Designer

    2019 - 2021
    Freedom Robotics
    • Designed the initial look and feel of the product to give it a "Tony Stark feel" as request by the client. At this time, the platform for robotics monitoring, analysis, and control I was working at was focused on startup-level robotics companies.
    • Changed direction and started to work with enterprise-level clients. This required a direction change in the design language and over many iterations I made sure the interface evolved into a more enterprise-friendly version.
    • Helped design the concept of fleets. The client was unsure of how to group and present the user's robots. Seeing how every user could be different, I helped them come up with the concept of fleets, which was a flexible way of grouping devices.
    • Helped implement zones structure to the existing fleets (zones were smaller groups nested in each other under fleets).
    • Designed the pilot experience. The user could either control their robots from a first-person perspective with the help of the cameras on the robot and a joystick interface or on a map, they could give direct commands and designate routes.
    • Designed the new dashboard creation flow, where the user can add data topics as they needed, resize easily, drag and drop and create their dashboards according to their needs.
    Technologies: ROS, InVision, Framer, Sketch
