About Lee Munroe

Digital Product & User Experience Designer

Day to day: Product discovery, user research, sketching and brainstorming, prototyping and validating, usability testing, designing interfaces, writing well structured HTML/CSS (usually with SCSS), working closely with engineers and product people. Here are the tools I use.

Primarily a Designer, I markup my own designs in HTML, CSS and Javascript and am not afraid to get my hands dirty writing Ruby, PHP, Python and Node.js. Check out my portfolio or GitHub for examples of my work, products I've built from scratch and code I've written.

I take a lean agile approach to product design, using user feedback and metrics to help guide design decisions early in the process, continuously validating assumptions & iterating.

I have a Masters in Multi-Disciplinary Design from University of Ulster Belfast and am currently leading Design at Mailgun by Rackspace in San Francisco. Previously led Design at Kareo and Runnable.
