User Experience Designer

I joined the company shortly after their launching. I did a diagnose and heuristic evaluation on the website and started to work on improvements; to do that I also had to do user research and refine the target audience, I conducted some user interviews to have a clear view about user requirements, goals and pain points. I worked together with the marketing team to increase brand awareness and engagement. I worked along with stakeholders, and users to develop new categories and features.
