Dec 2013 - Apr 2019
When I joined Watershed, the product was just a login screen and two reports that had to be loaded by a developer. During my time at Watershed, I helped design and launch everything in the product including: dashboarding creation, design, and management tools; 17 customizable report types; custom data visualizations; report filtering, configuration, and sharing tools; data ingestion, transformation, and debugging tools; and administrative settings tools.
A key challenge that Watershed had, was that in addition to creating a new type of product for the learning and development industry they also had to create a market for the product. I spent a lot of my time at Watershed designing product concepts that would get prospects excited about the product and company. I’m unfortunately unable to share those concepts due to an NDA.
One of my favorite report types that I designed was called the Activity report. The idea behind this report was that a user could configure it using a single learning activity, like an assessment, and it would display a ton of information. I had a lot of fun figuring out the types of visualizations to use for this report.
