As a UI/UX designer for a small but growing tech startup, my role is to bring the clients vision to life by solving complex problems with user-friendly interfaces and interactions. Because of the small size of the company I have had the opportunity to take on and learn a multitude of roles such as UI/UX design and Product Management where I learned valuable leadership skills that have been vital to the success of the company.
