Accountingfly is a job board and Applicant Tracking System that streamlines the recruiting process.
My role as Director of Product Design has been to coordinate all product design and user experience projects. I work closely with customers, our business team and developers to plan, coordinate and implement product efforts that align with immediate business and user goals.
In addition to product responsibilities, I write all the HTML and CSS for our site and application and use Git to integrate it with our repositories and prepare it for release.
Custom Applicant List
Working with our most active users, we were able to create the ideal applicant tracking system. Accountingfly was designed specifically for accounting recruiting.
Our users needs a few bits of very important information at-a-glance. At the same time, almost every organization has their own process, so the system needed to be flexible.
A big focus when designing Accountingfly was to eliminate as many frustrations as possible during the application process. We know from our users that the biggest headache of job boards was having to enter the same information twice.
We eliminate that by making the resume the focus of an application and only asking applicants for minimal additional information required for filtering/sorting by employers.
Everything in one place
The problem with the current process in accounting recruiting is that organizations were completely scattered and still living out of filing cabinets and Excel spreadsheets.
By combining everything into one profile, notes, documents, messages and applications, recruiting teams could be more efficient, productive and save time, which has ultimately lead to more hires.
A web app that connects accountants with the companies that hire them. Accountingfly is a job board and Candidate Management System that streamlines the recruiting process.
Remote jobs in accounting can be unique. Some organizations are completely remote, while some prefer you to live somewhat close to the main office.
Working with our remote customers, I was able to come up with a solution that allowed for them to post either Remote-Anywhere jobs or Remote-Local jobs. This language is intuitive and sets the right expectation for candidates.
Product Design, User Experience and Graphic Design
LoadMonkey is fictitious app providing on-demand cargo delivery service. Users who need small loads moved quickly are matched with experienced drivers for local delivery.
Problem Not everyone who needs to move small loads of furniture and other items have access to a truck, or maybe they don't even have their own transportation. Furthermore, moving trucks and companies are overkill for smaller, local loads.
Solution Match users with delivery needs to local, dependable drivers who own trucks and other moving vehicles.
What do you need delivered?
Rather than have users measure multiple items and create a high barrier to entry, an intelligent algorithm would determine how much dimensional space the objects would occupy and determines what type of driver the user should be paired with.
We ask drivers what vehicles they plan to user for delivery and determine each model's maximum safe load capacity. Some drivers may choose to deliver in an extended cab pickup or box truck.
To ease the pain of mobile payments, and create a pleasurable experience, we offer a couple of options at the checkout screen.
First, you can choose either the delivery address or the pickup address to autofill your billing address. Second, you can even choose to swipe your card when the driver arrives to avoid inputting credit card information alltogther.
Pickup & Delivery
We want the experience of LoadMonkey to be pleasurable for both users and drivers. Whenever a delivery is scheduled, based on the items in the order we will give users a simple checklist to make pickup easier.
Nothing is worse than showing up somewhere like an apartment complex or other property whose layout is atypical. A special instructions option is provided to offer any extra details about the trip that would make the driver's job as painless as possible.

In 2012 I was the Product Designer for a short-lived messaging application called Hippy Social.
A client came to the company I was working for with an idea for location-based messaging app. I was assigned to the project and at that first meeting, wasn't convinced the idea was worth pursuing. But after some more conversations, and sifting through all of the ideas for the app, I was able to help the client pull back, trim down the features and bring focus to the app.
Eventually I left that company to work full-time at Hippy Social. Over the next few months I worked closely with developers overseas to bring Hippy Social to the App Store. The app was short lived though as I believe we were too early to market and underfunded.

Jurispect is a regulatory intelligence platform that empowers users to monitor the changing regulatory landscape in a single interface. Powered by user engagement and data science, compliance teams can easily stay on top of industry trends, track and share documents, and quickly see all relevant compliance documents from Federal and State agencies, and experts.
When Jurispect was first founded, I was hired to create a brand, web presence and user interface for their platform. The Jurispect platform was highly collaborative, so the interface had to revolved around team sharing and communication.
Strong hierarchy was needed so that issues and changes were clear and information could be quickly and easily scanned.
