Experience

Facebook

Product Designer (Feb 2018–Present)

  • Designed highly-visible analytics dashboard for tracking Oculus orders (used by company leaders like Mark and VP of AR/VR), replacing the initial attempt — a bunch of charts thrown onto a page — with a robust UI framework that provides more intuitive ways to navigate and filter data visualizations, designed to scale gracefully as more graphs, categories, and products are added
  • Designed a seamless end-to-end experience for self-purchasing IT accessories and other work goods through a company portal, replacing a primitive beta version that was prone to human error due to confusing navigation and lack of UI cues
  • Identified issues in badges used to show status in complex business processes and developed an intuitive, reusable design pattern with logical visual cues, deliberate color choices, and purposeful content strategy
  • Became power user of internal design tool within a month and created tutorials for advanced features (the team then requested I make official tutorials), helped develop community best practices, selected by manager to train new hires on using the tool

Evernote
