San Francisco, CA, United States
Ideator, Outreach Officer, UX Design
Description of Role
One of my jobs on this project has been to reach out to educators, organizations, companies, municipalities and engineers to enroll them in our project. Another job I've had is to work closely with the designer, the product manager, and the software developers to develop the App from our initial concept to what it is now. A big part of this is prioritizing what we should do first, which is constantly changing!
A Typical Day On This Project
What I love about working on this project is that over the course of over 2 years there is no typical day, though lately a typical day often starts early and ends late as we pushed to complete the Alpha App. The project has had me meeting with and keeping up with collaborators, reaching out to and meeting new people, learning how to make and edit videos, interviewing engineers for podcasts, and throughout the process constantly re-evaluating what we should be focusing on first.
What I Liked About This Project
I love that this project has allowed me the opportunity me to meet so many people doing so many inspiring things, and has also had me doing so many different types of things on any given day of the week. From meeting with the CEO of a large international engineering company or large national trade organization to learning how to make and edit videos and podcasts, to interviewing businesses about their needs, to pitching our idea to investors and classrooms of brilliant entrepreneurs, to visiting high school classrooms to talk about what it's like to be a Civil Engineer!
