About Lee Munroe

Profile photo of Lee Munroe

As a digital product & user experience designer I focus on 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 teams. Here are the tools I use.

I write HTML, CSS and Javascript and am comfortable working with Ruby, PHP, Python and Node.js, commiting code and deploying to production environments. 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 user research and metrics to help guide design decisions early in the process, continuously validating assumptions & iterating.

In 2009 I graduated with 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.
