I led ux at the UK's number one cashback site for 5 years during which time we grew from 300k to over 6 million members
Head of Design & UX
UX design, User research, Branding
I started working on Quidco before it was spun out from the incubator and eventually joined the team in London from 2010–2015. Quidco gave me my first practical experience with UX research and forever altered the course of my career.
Along the way I was able to design one of our ATL ad campaigns (ads appearing on the London Underground, buses and taxis), designed our core mobile app (and the ClickSnap grocery coupon app), and even made of our how-to videos. I introduced design sprints in 2013 and gathered stakeholders together so we could build a thorough reunderstanding of the product and customers.
