I was responsible for the Enterprise User Experience team for Avanade’s clients from our offshore delivery center in Buenos Aires. Our team provided User Interface Design and Front-End development for Enterprise Content Management Systems, Corporate Intranets, Business Intelligence panels and Proof of concept development over Microsoft Technologies.
Our biggest customers were P&G, Walmart & Starbucks.
I was promoted to Team Lead position before my first year as a Senior Designer in the company. My most important responsibilities were team growth and project oversight while keeping attrition at a minimum. We grew from 3 to +15 members in 2 years, working along HR to interview and recruit specialized profiles with both an eye for code, visuals, and a User Centered mindset. My team building responsibilities included overseeing each team member’s career planning, competency training and evaluation while handling the team’s project pipeline and team member allocation & utilization. I was also responsible for producing sales presentations and maintaining the team’s portfolio.
