We have an amazingly talented team from all around the world and we’d love you to get to know them. So that’s why we’ve asked Taise, our amazing UX and all things graphics a few questions to discover more about what makes her tick.
Hey Taise tell us a little about you? (your background, qualifications, which town/city your live etc)
I have my background in Graphics Design, working as a Designer for +8 years and with UX/UI Design for over 5 years. Recently, I completed a Master in Computing Science in Ireland. I live in Dublin city centre for the past 4 years and I am originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Why did you want to work for Pulse Market?
I met Pulse through CCT College, where I completed my Master. They were looking for a UX/UI Designer who could understand the project and turn it into a real product. Had my first meet with Michael O’Shea and then David Lewis who presented me the project and I started working as an intern. After a month, things were going incredibly well and I was contracted. I am so happy to be part of this team.
What does a typical working day look like for you?
I start my day with a UX daily meeting with Mariana. We discuss what should be done during the day. When we have to create a completely new flow, we open a tool called InVision and we start discussing and drawing the flow in low-fidelity based on business requirements. After that, we validate the flow with business and developers’ team. Once the design is validated, we start creating the UI on Figma. During my day, I have a couple of meetings with the team too.
What do you like most about your role with Pulse Market?
Designing a product with user centred approach is on the things that I most like. Creating amazing interfaces, having new discoveries about the product and its features and being part of a creative team with Mariana, makes my work much more pleasure.
What is your biggest achievement to date (personal or professional)?
My biggest achievement I think is being where I am. I left my home country 4 years ago and my only objective in that time was to learn English and to have an abroad experience for about 8 months. Being in Ireland all this time and having the possibility to work in a multi-cultural company doing something that I love is definitely my biggest achievement.
