Personal Summary

Hiring manager

Dear Hiring manager,

I've spent the last few months working at a start up as a SAP UX application architect, though I loved the work it was just not meant to be as with so many start-ups the project work just didn't come fast enough and the company has went quiet until next year when business should pick up. This was a great learning experience and loved working on the SAP UI5 platform using Fiori/Neptune it will have to be with another company.

 

I have also worked as a UX team lead at Intel, with 17 years of front end development, graphic design and web content production. In process for a BsC in Computer Science. I thrive under pressure and have coordinated both intact, and virtual teams. I also have extensive experience managing relationships with digital agencies, and driving them through the design process. I'm comfortable with SCRUM and Rally, both were used on projects at Intel.

 

Last 5+ years were focused on User Centered Design, leading business stakeholders through visual comps and wireframes, requirements gathering and ultimately front end development. I'm a firm believer that when it comes to good UX, less is more, performance is critical, perception is everything.

 

I have extensive experience developing with Javascript, jQuery, CSS3, Bootstrap and Angular. More recently I've been playing with Meteor, a full stack Javascript framework...mostly because i like to keep my skills sharp and modern.

 

I spent a decade managing various UX and web marketing projects for Intel.com, giving me the opportunity to work with the most talented digital agencies in the world and the most demanding marketing, content and user requirements.

Sincerely,

Charles Straight
