During the 4 years that I worked at LivePerson, I was the lead UI engineer on two different teams.
For the CoreAI team, I was responsible for designing and building features using multiple NodeJS microservices and React based UIs, all deployed using a CI/CD process on AWS. These systems processed text responses using Machine Learning, and operated seamlessly inside the main Vue.JS web application.
In the Self-Service team, I was responsible for improving the UX of various aspects of the LivePerson ecosystem. This required me to research, and implement Stripe as a secure payment provider. Also during this time, I identified a gap in developer efficiency at the company, and created a Design System initiative to combat this.
I developed and implemented a comprehensive website for Qualcomm, which effectively showcases their expansive and continually expanding product offerings. It was a challenging project that required collaboration between designers, developers, and project managers. To ensure smooth progress, I attended weekly meetings with Qualcomm to discuss product features and technical solutions.
When this project first started in 2012, EmberJS was the framework that was chosen to implement this. Looking back, it was a bit difficult to work with and seemed very strict in its approach. Later on, we decided to update the UI code and refactored the UI part to use React
Monocle is a high quality magazine, so the design requirements for this web application had to maintain a strict level of quality.
Responsive Design was a key feature of this build. I paid special attention to the Typography and layout, so that they looked great on any device.
I used an XML-powered CMS for the backend so editors could easily manage the content.
