Hi, I'm Caitlin – A product designer based in Brooklyn.
I've been working in New York for a variety of industries since graduating from Carnegie Mellon in 2008.
In 2018, I started working for Lyft as product designer on the passenger app, focused on improving the pickup experience. Prior to that, I joined BuzzFeed to design BuzzFeed News for Android and iOS in 2015. Following my stint working on News, I worked on on BuzzFeed's cross-platform article experience as well as our native apps, and then lead product designer for Tasty, most recently designing our iOS app from the ground up.
Before BuzzFeed, I was lead product designer for Kitchensurfing, a startup that connected people with talented private chefs. My last big project there was productizing both customer and admin sides of an on-demand product.
Things I get excited about:
Native mobile apps
Learning new things!
Drawing on whiteboards with smart people
Things I am PRETTY good at:
Taking product concepts from vague scribbles through visual designs
Breaking down big problems into manageable iterations
Asking questions and getting answers from data and user research
