Ameriprise Financial

As a User Experience Designer within an Agile environment, I was able to leverage not only my UX design skills but also my knowledge of Agile. Ameriprise just began the movement to an Agile development approach when I stated. Our work on JoinAmeriprise.com, Ameriprise.com, and ColumbiaThreadneedle.com built out the Agile best practices across the various team resources. I was able to help the project & product manager, business analyst, and others in the development team to understand where and how Agile could work in the Ameriprise environment.

My specific duties involved many aspects of user centered design. We conducted user research, usability testing, wireframe development, creative design, and engineering. We also established effective ways to break down the solutions into appropriate sprints with well-sized stores that tied together the different deliverables across the entire team. We "invented" an entirely new way for the team to work within Ameriprise.
