I’m Ted Kessler, an up-and-coming UX/UI/Product Designer with programming experience and a background in healthcare technology from the Bay Area, CA. After 5.5 years of experience in medical software as a Case Analyst and Product Investigator I-III, I recently finished a UX/UI Design certificate program. I found these User Experience Designer positions with Net Health and I’m excited about them because I’m passionate about healthcare and I’m looking to make a big difference for the better in this realm!

Here is how I specifically align with your posted qualifications (taken from one of the job descriptions):

  • 1-3 years UX experience (not quite 1 year yet with a UX title, as I’ve had one paid freelance end-to-end UX project so far, but I believe my years of web and graphic design experience and UX/UI certificate combine to form an equivalent)
  • Axure, Photoshop, and Illustrator knowledge a plus (for UX/UI design I mainly use Figma but I would be happy to learn Axure before starting)
  • Passionate about continuing education and career development
  • Passionate about staying abreast in new design trends
  • Bachelor’s Degree preferred (B.S. in Digital Arts)
  • Knowledge of user interface design processes and methodology
  • Knowledge of HTML/CSS and JavaScript
  • Proficient with Microsoft Office Suite
  • Abstract thinking and methodical problem-solving skills
  • Strong business sense, excellent written and oral communication skills, and the ability to work on multiple projects at one time

Below is a link to my most relevant UX/UI design project: Psychfinder, an app that helps patients find mental healthcare providers. I chose the topic of mental health for this project based on my empathy for a friend’s difficulty in booking a mental healthcare appointment, combined with my interest in healthcare.

Underneath that are links to the other UX/UI design projects I’ve done during my UX certificate course.

I also have some smaller projects posted on Dribbble.
