Employment


Health ELT

Product Manager

2016

I managed the time, commitments, and priorities for the product team at a health tech startup that specialized in enterprise tools for large-scale health insurers and state agencies. My direct responsibilities spanned the UX, UI, and QA team. Additionally I interfaced closely with the company CTO and other leadership, acting as liaison between the product team and development teams. In this role, I also contributed to the front end development, responsible for ensuring designs were implemented accurately and in most cases fixing or amending them to the designers' specifications for both web dashboard applications and our mobile application. In some product elements, I was responsible for QA and testing of certain features, and in others I oversaw testing with other team members. Bug reporting and prioritizing also ran through me.
