About Lee Munroe

Lee Munroe

As a product designer & web developer I focus on designing and shipping web, mobile & desktop applications that solve problems and offer users an enjoyable experience.

My workflow will typically involve product discovery and planning, customer research, rapid prototyping & validation, usability testing, UI design, frontend HTML/CSS and working closely with engineering and product teams. Here are the tools I use.

I write production-ready HTML, CSS and Javascript and am comfortable working with Ruby, PHP, Python and Node.js stacks. Check out my portfolio or GitHub for examples of my work, products I've built and code I've written.

I take a lean agile approach to product design, using research and data 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 a Senior Product Designer at Mesosphere in San Francisco, building an operating system for engineers and datacenters. Previously I have led design teams at Mailgun by Rackspace, Kareo and Runnable, was Founder of Lookaly and created The Big Word Project and Codeshare.
