My work

Limber

Limber is a temporary staffing marketplace founded in 2016. The app based platform connects hospitality venues, restaurants and hotels with rated local workers looking to pick up extra shifts. As the companies first hire, I developed real exposure to the workings of an early stage seed startup ranging from investment to user interviews and everything in-between. During the placement I headed up the product team where I was responsible for designing a range of digital products from concept to delivery. I also helped define the companies first year of product strategy, managed the feature roadmap and managed an off-shore development team. I also designed their website which you can check out here: limber.work

We received feedback and mentorship from the likes of the head of technology at JP Morgan, the ex CMO of Pepsi and Bank of America as well as a tour of the Google and Facebook campuses.

LOVESPACE

In 2015, I spent 6 months working for LOVESPACE as part of my degree course, the company is a multi-award winning startup in it’s third year of high growth. Founded by Brett Akker the man behind StreetCar (now ZipCar) it was made up of a team of proven entrepreneurs, giving a fantastic opportunity to learn how a successful startup is grown and the challenges that come with scale.

I worked primarily in operations, leading a cross functional project to review the logistics and warehouse processes - implementing a culture of lean thinking. I built up an expertise in lean operations and the challenges of scaling in house distribution networks. An area of expertise I look forward to developing as the ‘on-demand’ economy continues to grow.
