I joined the company in 2014 and stayed through 2019. I worked on a rebrand, a cross-platform redesign, and a codebase refactor; introduced code, design, and workflow standards; worked with design teams from Google, Apple, and Spotify; and led cross-departmental projects.
I led the design and front-end development for core pages like the mobile song page, the album page, and the video page. I worked with other designers on the team on iterations of the song page, which was almost constantly being updated and refined.
