I served as the UX Lead for product design at dscout. I led the team in :

  • Gathering internal and external user feedback

  • Brainstorming and designing concepts

  • Wireframing and prototyping solutions, and

  • Testing and measuring designs.

I also focused on connecting the product team to users and other dscout employees to the design process, creating cross-functional teams to serve as strategic partners, creating a repository of searchable user findings, and implementing feedback systems to log and track issues.

I worked heavily with development and QA to create the required user stories and technical specifications, and create scripts and protocols to test and measure the designs once released.
