Design

We get to do it all – from research, concept, interaction design, user-testing, lean strategy, visual design, and development support. We listen and empathize with the users, share this knowledge, test a hypothesis, build prototypes, make it pretty, and support developers and the team. We’re constantly learning, and iterating on and improving our process.

"My role as a designer is to gain empathy for the user, share this knowledge with the team, test a hypothesis, wire-frame workflows, build prototypes, make pretty and support developers and the team. Working at Pivotal is like receiving a degree in Agile and Lean methodologies."
