UX Design Intern
SAP Analytics Cloud — Augmented BI
Figma, Illustrator, Jira
Sept 2021 - Apr 2022
During the pandemic, I joined the Augmented BI team of SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). I worked on high-priority features within the designer experience (aka "Stories") as a UX Designer.
While working in multi-disciplinary teams, I learned to stand my ground to protect the interests of users and championed the best solutions forward. I also learned how to defend my design decisions while balancing between different stakeholder needs.
I love a perfectly aligned mockup as much as the next designer but there's a time and place for that level of detail. I identified the purpose & audience of my visual documents helped to tailor the level of fidelity needed when communicating to cross-functional partners.
I was lucky enough to be in an environment that supported my growth and career. It was incredibly inspiring to work alongside senior designers that have shown me the absolute diligence & care that goes into their respective craft.
Being a part of the SAP internship program, I wanted to contribute to the vibrancy of the community in some way. In the second month of my term, I was selected as one of the Communications Designers. I released bi-weekly newsletters to share iXp news (which we wittily called "WhatSAP") and created vector graphics for our video series to welcome the incoming cohort of interns.
The d-Shop is home to a variety of innovative side-projects headed by employees. I joined Murray Link because I was interested in learning about how design supports the healthcare & blockchain industries. The Murray Link project matches patients to suitable organ donations using a pan-Canada database, the Canadian Organ Replacement Register (CORR). As this project differed in nature from my regular work assignments, I was able to gain valuable UX skills while designing for a healthcare product.
