New job as Dir of UX at Groupon
Today seems like an opportune time to announce that tomorrow is my last day working at LinkedIn. On Monday I'll start a new job as Groupon's director of user experience, out of their Palo Alto office.
I wasn't at LinkedIn very long -- only about 8 months. It's hard to leave: I was lucky enough to work with Steve Johnson, LinkedIn's UX director, and he's an awesome design thinker and people manager. I'll miss working with Steve and the other people on my team.
That said, Groupon is obviously a fantastic opportunity. They're thinking big and I'm excited to get to help shape their user experience as they add new features and services. Plus I'll be growing the UX team: our first hire is for a UX researcher / answer provider; if you're interested, send me email.
