Jules Konig
My name is Jules Konig and I'm a Senior Product Designer living and working in Bellevue, WA. I'm currently working for an EdTech startup named Section4. At Section4, I am helping to build an amazing learning community and learning platform for our students.

My Design Background
My career started in the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 2000's, where I was focused primarily on designing online retail web-based experiences for brands like The North Face, JanSport, and Timberland.

Later, I joined the growing team at Stimulant, a boutique design and development agency that specialized in proof of concept work and location-based experiences. As Art Director and Visual Design Lead at Stimulant, I  designed user interfaces for next generation hardware and software, mobile and desktop apps, and tons of other location specific experiences that incorporated vision and proximity sensors to enhance the user experience.

If I sound like a good fit for your team, I'm always open to learning more about freelance and full-time opportunities.

As a Senior Product Designer I am leading the product design team and helping build the learning and membership platform for both consumer and enterprise customers. I create future vision concepts and prototypes to help direct the future of the product. I partner with the Head of Product to define the product roadmap. I continually work to improve the user experience through user and stakeholder interviews. I've implemented our design system from scratch, and moved the product team to Figma. I've instituted a system to ensure efficiency from concept to developer handoff. I'm working cross functionally with many teams in the org to get oodles of things done, from product, to course assets, all while going through a company rebrand. I'm also representing the product team on the rebrand effort.
