Uber Design Internship
My role for 12 weeks as a Product Design Intern on the Safety & Insurance Team.
To see some of my design work from the internship:
- Order an Uber.
- Ask your driver to speed.
- Just kidding; that’s not safe! Don’t do that.
I worked on the Safety Team at Uber and my projects revolved around ways to keep Uber Drivers safer domestically and globally. The work isn’t public-facing yet, so I can’t share the designs, but I’d love to talk with you about it.
To start, here’s an overview of what I did:
researched challenges drivers face
studied comparative & competitive products
brainstormed & designed iterations using hand sketches and Sketch
prototyped in Framer to convey the motion of the designs to product managers, engineers, and other designers
tested the nuanced design differences between informing, alerting, annoying, and distracting
led user testing and interviews with drivers to understand how effective the designs were
presented my process and designs to Uber’s design team at the monthly Design All Hands meeting
