Rapal

User Experience Designer4/2012 – 10/2018

I started working full time after I graduated in 2012. My title was UX designer, but my work consisted of both UX design and web frontend development in about equal parts. As a designer, I arranged close to one hundred user interviews and usability tests. I did visual design, created mockups and prototypes, and supported product management in writing user stories. As a developer, I was partly or fully responsible for the front end in several web applications. I got very experienced with JavaScript, HTML and CSS, and used frameworks like Angular and React to create modern, responsive single-page applications. I also did some backend development with C# and ASP.NET. I worked as part of an agile team, so I got familiar with practices like refactoring, unit testing, code reviews, continuous integration and agile planning.

Software Developer5/2007 – 3/2012
