As the Director of Product at InVision for two years, I oversaw numerous product updates and major feature releases, including InVision V5, a complete overhaul of the app, rebuilt from the ground up for speed and clarity.
- I worked directly with the CEO, Design, and Research teams to define new product features, provide art direction, and set product vision.
- I conducted customer interviews with high-profile design teams to understand their design process and integrated the findings into our product design cycle.
- I ran projects from inception to delivery, coordinating design and engineering teams, estimating scope, creating design documentation, coordinating release notes and launch materials with the marketing team.
- I hosted weekly company-wide calls to communicate engineering and design project status, and conducted internal and external demos of upcoming feature releases.
Key Project: InVision V5
By 2015 the InVision feature-set had grown tremendously over multiple iterations and was in need of a strategic unifying overhaul, focused on speed and clarity. As a Product Manager, my first step was to define the problems we needed to solve in detail. By working with the executive leadership team, interviewing customers and analyzing support data, I identified and prioritized key workflows that were in need of a performance and UX refresh.
I created a roadmap of work, uncovered and mitigated dependencies with the engineering teams, and received approval from the executive team to begin v5. I presented the v5 vision to the design and engineering teams to get strategic buy-in and build excitement around a shared vision.
As the teams worked through the 6 month project, I gathered feedback on prototypes from customers, facilitated company-wide demos of work in progress, adjusted scope and timelines as needed, and provided design feedback to the design and engineering teams.
InVision v5 launched smoothly – hitting all major milestones and performance benchmarks along the way. It was overwhelmingly applauded by customers, and set the foundation for the next generation of features for the InVision platform.
