2020 - 2023
Principal Product Designer @ Xero

As a Principal Designer my primary role at Xero was to lead and support cross-functional, complex strategic initiatives. I worked across the Xero product, but was predominantly focused on consolidating and growing our emergent people management suite of tools.

Other responsibilities include;
  • Supporting and enabling our design teams across the organisation, developing our craft and capability.
  • Partnering with engineering, architecture and product teams on product strategy, vision, standards and prioritisation initiatives.
  • Championing customer driven outcomes through quality research and design.

Most of my work was been hybrid, split between working with my colleagues in NZ, Australia and the UK.
