Creating a strategy for a high traffic sidebar
A high traffic sidebar has a lot of stakeholders trying to get a piece of it. How can we build a strategy to bring order to the chaos?
Restructuring and Scaling at Stack Overflow
Merging product areas and scaling from a team of two to ten, all in one year.
Collectives on Stack Overflow
Starting with a new way for companies to interact with developers and evolving to a must-have community space.
"Piper is amazing. She cares deeply about us and the department. She keeps the design culture strong and relevant."
Direct Report
"Piper is a rare type of designer whose skills are both broad and deep. I've seen her create detailed user journey maps, design intuitive interfaces, translate her own email mockups into front-end code, and much more. Piper is great collaborator and isn’t afraid to ask tough questions in a group setting. She will quickly become an indispensable part of any team and I'd work with her again at any opportunity."
Ted Goas, Principal Product Designer
"Simply put, Piper is excellent. She quickly learned our business, our customers and our current application. She is very committed, has very high standards, and is a pleasure to work with."
John Cidulka, Director of Product
