In 2021, Marshmallow launched its first app on both iOS and Android to help make insurance easier and faster for its customers!
My job was to facilitate the discovery and design of the MVP (minimal viable product) solution to have it ready for launch within 6 months.
We kicked off the project with a small team, even before we’d hired our now iOS and Android engineers. Over the next 6 months, our team grew to be fully cross-functional.
We split the project into 3 sections.
In 2019 to 2020, GP at hand, an NHS service powered by Babylon’s technology, started to diversify its offering by making Nurses, Physiotherapists, Travel Health Specialists, and other clinician types available for our members to book appointments with.

I led the design of the experience from June 2019 across iOS, Android, and Web platforms.
I worked alongside a Researcher, Content Designer, 2 Product Managers, a Delivery manager, a Tech Lead, and a team of 8 engineers.

What historically was a manageable number to book via support quickly became impractical as the business scaled.
It was a complex project that needed unraveling, cross-team collaboration, exploration, testing and 6 months of development. …
