As a product designer my role is to make buying and selling cars as easy and straight-forward as possible. To ensure that the usability on the site is the best it can be. I work alongside a wide range of people from different disciplines such as product managers, engineers and researchers. My role also involves working through a full lifecycle of a design. This includes being apart of design workshops/sprints as well as designing, prototyping and testing ideas.
Being apart of the digital retailing project which is still in the early stages but this project will be a big change for the company and it's very exciting to see whats going to happen.
I did product design and technology degree. Then took a role in designing kitchen and then decided to make the switch over to a digital space.
The scope and potential of what you can do in the digital and tech space is so massive and it's constantly changing. There has also been a shift for products to move online and especially in the two years this couldn't be more true. I was initially inspired to go into digital because of the scope you can do in the space and the fast paced environment.
There is a large amount of options within this area. You don't have to be a technical person or know anything about code to start a career in this space. I would certainly recommend looking around and understand all the options that are available out there and if you find something that you want to do, go for it!
