Here's some unrelated motivation. 🎉

About Me

My name is Alexander Green. I graduated from the University of Scranton in 2015 with a degree in Marketing. After graduating I wanted to work in tech, so while teaching myself how to code I consulted (design, writing, and photography work) under the name Alexander & Company. I had the opportunity to work on logos, branding, press kits, solution briefs, posters, marketing collateral, ads, and more.

Once my web development and UX skills improved, I got a tech internship which eventually led to my role today. In that intersection of skills and jobs, I found my passion - product design.

As a digital product designer, I believe in creating highly functional, beautiful products that improve the lives and productivity of every user. I’ve had an odd journey in my short career, but I believe it’s given me a broader perspective on how to craft the lasting relationships between products and their people.

Scalr


Overview

I previously worked on the Marketing team at Scalr, an enterprise cloud management platform. The core of our mission was increasing the number and quality of leads to hand over to our Sales team. How we did that was through social media, email campaigns, diverse ads, an informative and convincing site, and content curation.

I wrote case studies, tutorials on open-source tools for developers, and product updates on our cloud management platform. Scalr Weekly, a weekly newsletter I worked on, featured news about the cloud industry and was used to maintain brand awareness and build technicality credibility with our target user base.

Cryptoboard


Overview

Over the first half of 2017, I built a platform for digital assets and cryptocurrencies . This project was a dashboard for viewing digital assets, handling the algorithmic trading of Ether, Bitcoin, and Litecoin, and mining lower tier digital currencies. The dashboard is built on React and Node.js, trading strategies are run serverless in AWS Lambda. Started in July 2017, and project was completed in September 2017. The project no longer mines currencies or completes trades. Check It Out →

Patron NYC


Overview

My first attempt at a consumer facing web product was Patron, a Facebook Messenger bot and web app for bar recommendations in NYC. The goal was a product that the end user would find interesting enough to try, and gain something from. Search by borough, price, and bar type. Read The Blog Post →

Count.It Labs


Overview

The internship where I really learned to code. As part of a 3 person engineering team, we built a corporate wellness web application, which enabled you to create a leaderboard of your friends fitness activities, regardless of the device they used (e.g. Fitbit, Strava, Garmin, Google Health, Apple Health).

I worked on the total UX/UI redesign for web & mobile, a robust email notification system based on complex logic around user, team, company and regional stats. Lastly, built out a Slack bot integration that pulled compiled stats from our database or raw stats from the individual fitness tracker APIs and served it to the user. Visit the site →
