Project outcomes

As technical program manager, I was part of the decision-making team that determined deadlines and deliverables. I owned the scrum process from doing stand-ups, delegating tasks and coordinating between Junior's design team, Junior's tech team and Shyp's tech team. I also owned the QA process, done mostly through Bugherd. I also made significant contributions to the UX design of the estimator tool.

Junior's development framework

The development framework I setup for Shyp was very helpful to finish the project with high quality and on time. With my combined learnings from Managing the development process of our projects with shyp, Amnesty's Fear of the sky and pocktVR to setup the development framework at Junior.
