While I was one of two UX Designers at Ident, in practical terms I was the lead designer since my boss was occupied with wider product concerns. Joining a company with a product suite already deep in development was an interesting challenge, as any upgrades or changes I made had to be balanced against ongoing tech debt across two different platforms.
Working with FedCheck was a pretty big challenge for me. It taught me a lot about the design process, and about the practical challenges of working on something already deep in development.
In addition to FedCheck, I was pulled in to help with new products and other experiments. Brainstorming these ideas from scratch was a welcome break from negotiating the tech debt of continuous software development.
