I have been at Weather Underground for 4.5 months now. I have been working on a lot of great things!
I redesigned the Weather API. It was launched in April with a new responsive design layout and header. It was featured at TechCrunch NYC and will also be featured at TechCrunch SF.
I am working on the WunderMap with a great team improving its user experience. I am working on other products, but I can not discuss them until they are fully launched.
I have also gained new skills:
- Responsive Design Layout
- Agile and Scrum Methodology
I have also grown deeper with skills I had before:
- User Experience
– User Testing
Recently at WU, we have created an indepth discovery process which really focuses on the users because the products we are creating truly affect users especially during severe weather events.
I have also decided that I need to refine and grow further in developing my own designs and have dove deeper into HTML5 and CSS3. I want my designs to be pixel perfect and it only benefits the design if a designer can build their own work.
Working at Weather Underground has been really great so far. I enjoy collaborating with my intelligent co-workers. Our design team is stacked with a lot of talent. I have been learning a lot from them and we have been working on a lot of great stuff too.
I have also learned, once a freelancer, always a freelancer. I am still connecting and doing work for new and old clients. I feel that I will always have an entrepreneurial spirit and continue to freelance in some sort of capacity.
