I worked with the Mobile team on User and Interaction Experience for the mobile suit.
I helped redesign the IX for the Login screen, Alerts, Contextual Search integration, and kickstarting the Pattern Library for the iconic Bloomberg Terminal’s mobile suit of products.
Details about my specific responsibilities below.
The Bloomberg Terminal & My Role There
User Experience Research Bloomberg Mobile Professional has been one of the pioneering fintech players in the mobile sphere, but improving a product of this scope requires constant investigation into the best new designs and usability patterns. I did several audits of competitive products while exploring innovative UX solutions.
Interaction Experience Worked primarily on redesigning the Login experience, improving the Alerts flow, and integrating the new Contextual Search functionality from the Bloomberg Terminal to the mobile suit. Additionally, I also contributed to the improvement of the Landing page, and the development of data visualization tools specific to mobile interaction.
Pattern Library Keeping up with the ever evolving mobile ecosystem requires rigorous documentation of the most resilient usability patterns. I was one of the core team members working on setting up a format for this library, auditing the mobile suit and documenting models of use flows for different platforms and devices. I also created archive templates for the continued documentation of interface and usability patterns.
Usability Testing I worked with Bloomberg's in-house UX Research Lab to test the new heuristic patterns for product-wide interface update with key users. This involved observing users in the Lab testing the new usability schema, conducting in-depth interviews with users, and processing the information into usable takeaways for the design team.
