Joining Spredfast at an early-stage allowed me to take on a lot of responsibility and make a real impact on the product. Since my time there the company has grown to over 500 people (from around seventy-five) and raised more than $100 million dollars.

Mobile Product

The main goal of the mobile product was to distill the features and functionality of the web app to not only take advantage of the mobile form factor but to also give community managers the ability to manage their social media properties on-the-go.

Spredfast Mobile

I delivered a mobile product that—as one customer put it—was “amazeballs”. Not the word I would have chosen, but still a nice compliment

Desktop

My early work with Spredfast was to establish a new visual design language to create a more coherent experience. Additionally, my job was to identify opportunities to unify the user experience and improve usability by correcting the interaction paradigms and affordances that had become overly complex and inconsistent. This continued throughout as our team established a new vision.
