How did you land your current job?
I saw my current role advertised on LinkedIn. Depop was a brand I loved, so I applied directly on the website. I heard back within the same week, went through the different interview stages and got the job offer within the same month.
What are the most enjoyable aspects of your job?
I used to really enjoy the exploration phase of a project – where the sky’s the limit. I still enjoy it but now, but I’d probably say the most enjoyable part is when we discover a constraint, especially technical ones – which I’ve come to learn are inevitable for the most part. Sometimes, they cause you to adapt a design or change it completely and that’s where the real problem-solving happens.
Outside of the design process, I love having to regularly meet different people that use our app, as part of my job. Everyone has an interesting story; often you leave feeling more inspired than you did coming in, and even more passionate about what you’re building.
