    Andrew Greenwood

    User Experience (UX) Consultant & Information Architect (IA)

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a user experience consultant with a history of working with startups and world famous brands across multiple industries to define ideas, identify audiences and blueprint user interfaces. You can view my portfolio at: www.wearefuego.com My LinkedIn profile is here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andygreenwood2009 Expert in understanding your audience and modelling solutions to meet their requirements up to wireframe prototype level. Comfortable with producing deliverables and documentation for commercial and technical audiences with communication skills developed through working with a range of organisations from blue chip to start up. Frequently Asked Questions What software do you use for wireframing/prototyping? I prefer using Axure as it is one of the most powerful packages and I am an expert user meaning I can produce high quality wireframes and clickable prototypes in a shorter time. I am proficient in many other packages such as Balsamiq, Invision and Omnigraffle. How do you approach remote user testing? There are a range of options out there for usability testing on a remote basis. Some moderated by external parties, others unmoderated. I will take you through the options available but I always recommend the most effective (and free of software cost) method of using a conferencing facility such as Skype or Gotomeeting and sharing screens. This allows me to run the testing session live and be reactive to the subject as they use the product, questioning based on their usage.

    Sr. IT/Software Development (Project) Management

    Italy - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10

    - Sr. QA Engineer - Sr. Project / Program Manager / Scrum Master - Sr. Business Consultant After years of experience in Management in both the Software Development and IT industry, I want to expand my horizon at my level of expertise. I'm more geared towards management of technical staff and/or projects. In this setting I have experience in a lot of different specialties (QA, Customer Support, Web Development, Development, IT, Production, Client Management, and others). I'm comfortable in a lot of environments, but I like to be able to use my own management style that is more aimed in managing through positive experiences, openness and coaching and training. I'm definitely not a supporter/believer of managing with an iron fist. My main aim is always to create a positive and productive environment in which people can feel happy and flourish, as opposed to being stressed and strained. I learn quickly and I'm flexible and precise in my work. I have experience with multiple cultures and am a good communicator.
