2013–2016    Head of Product Design    BillGuard

Protect and do more with your money




BillGuard was a personal finance app helping people control, track and protect their money. Originally introduced as a web app, we quickly launched mobile apps allowing users to actively monitor and engage with their spending. Over the years, we've extended BillGuard's core offering to encompass more aspect of your financial life: Credit Score, Identity Protection (in partnership with Experian), Credit Optimizer and more. In October 2015, BillGuard was acquired by Prosper Marketplace, and our app was rebranded to Prosper Daily.

As Head of Product Design, I worked on the app’s core features from exploration through prototyping, handoff and launch, over multiple release cycles. I was also part of the company’s innovation taskforce, aiming to identify and model new use cases. During my time, I had the chance to lead a team of wonderful designers, promoting personal growth and skill development.
