Kitestrings Password Manager App (2015 – 2016)

Kitestrings is a collaborative tool which manages password access across teams, letting managers maintain control over who has access to which accounts. Kitestrings is built for team usage, making it easy to collaborate—and revoke access when someone leaves the team.

The problem: Online account owners and managers have no simple, organized, standardized way to share passwords securely while maintaining clear records of who has what passwords. Knowing who has access to what passwords among the team is confusing, time consuming, and potentially disastrous when a security crisis happens.

The solution: Kitestrings gives managers a quick and complete view of their online accounts and team members, shows who has access to password protected accounts, allows password management across the team, and instantly revokes access to people who are no longer on the team.

Simplex Mobility

Simplex Mobility Web & Mobile App (2013 – 2015)

Simplex Mobility is a mobility management services provider. Here we are designing and building a Ruby on Rails application called My-Serve with a small distributed team. The purpose of My-Serve is to equip telecom admins with helpful tools to manage their company wide mobility and devices.

I collaborated with a product manager and developers to define features, functionality, and content strategy to meet customer needs and align business goals. Determine application objectives and customer needs through research and planning. Responsible for product design which includes interaction design, interface design, front-end dev, and analysis. Continuous enhancement of existing features based on user feedback, testing and learning in an agile environment.

The Simplex team is small so we iterate often with regular deployments, following the methodologies of build-measure-learn from The Lean Startup.

We use Intercom (among other analytical tools) to gain insights and validate learning from how customers are interacting with the app. Intercom is awesome because it allows us to directly communicate with customers to get feedback and offer support.
