Birth of Live-Streaming
Periscope team, while operating independently from Twitter in the early days of acquisition, invented and popularized live-streaming. Born out of the Istanbul protests in 2014, the platform was instrumental in broadcasting (pun intended) the good, the bad, and the ugly of humanity. I had the chance to partake in the evolution of this new genre of expression.
Wearing multiple hats
During my time there, Periscope did not have product managers hence designers wore multiple hats. I was responsible to do competitive research, user interviews, iterative design, prototyping and sometimes even implementation. From our world class designers and engineers, I learned how to prototype with engineering constraints.
