ACCESS NYC

Role: Lead Developer and Digital Product Designer

https://access.nyc.gov

My primary product assignment at the Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity is ACCESS NYC, a public-facing website offering the following features:

NYC Opportunity initially launched the product a few months before I joined the team in May 2017. Over the past several years, I have participated in numerous sprints using my expertise in front-end engineering, user interface/experience design, and digital product feature development. When I began working with the team, we established a release cadence and deployment flow following a 2 to 3-week sprint cycle. In that time, we have delivered 60+ new releases of the code and design, including performance optimizations, security accreditation, feature enhancements, and new features.

 

Awards

ACCESS NYC has won several Government design and technology awards since its launch. Our team was also recognized by the Mayor's Office with a customer service award for our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
