What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

User Experience at MeUndies is still fairly new, so our team is very focused developing out our process and tools while still delivering on key projects and initiatives for the company. Our long-term goal is to be able support teams across the organization as partners who can help inform design and strategy with research.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

One great aspect of working at MeUndies is that the company culture and office space fosters teamwork and accessibility. We operate in a very fast environment, so you need to be constantly ready to jump on any new project, problem, or opportunity and help get things done. Often these impromptu meetings and brainstorms result in the best ideas!
