Employment
  • Product Manager & UX/UI Designer
    2017 - PRESENT
    CitizenShipper
    • Led a small team of developers and designers to revamp a legacy marketplace system used by transporters and shippers to book trips in the US.
    • Led analytics projects to ensure data is available to support future product initiatives. I planned and implemented a large part of Mixpanel tracking and built reports to inform the rest of the team.
    • Ran multiple research projects, from phone interviews to surveys, with the goal of understanding user pains and jobs and motivations.
    • Refactored legacy PHP code into a modern API supported by a cloud infrastructure. While this may seem odd for a designer to do, note that I did spend a lot of time in web development. This was a beautiful learning experience too. After a year and as the team grew, I was in charge of hiring dedicated back-end developers as I transitioned into a product management role. One of my strongest learning points is just realizing how difficult it is to build and scale a marketplace, but at the same time how rewarding it is when you help people create and grow their own businesses.
