Erica had a hunch that she’d enjoy design, so her major in digital media was the perfect way to test the waters. After graduating, she took a role doing animation and visual effects—along with developing proprietary tools for in-house artists on her team. That experience proved Erica right, so she set out to make designing tech products her full-time job.
Erica collaborates with Conductor’s product managers to make platform features and applications come to life. Then, she conducts user research and testing to help internal engineers develop new features or revisit existing ones that can be improved, like Searchlight’s navigation and information architecture. Erica considers design in the space uncharted territory—but after-hours drinks with her team is a path more traveled.
