Hi. My name is Jason Ruud (pronounced rude). I have 15 years of experience in developing online desktop and mobile user interfaces for both B2C and B2B clients. I work with my teams to build elegant and simple user interfaces that create fast, enjoyable experiences for customers. I'm passionate about practical UX and strong, efficient collaboration that fosters a shared understanding. I'm obsessed with new technologies. Whether it's a new gadget, framework, or app, I thrive to understand it and use that knowledge to create better, faster customer-driven solutions.
As a formally trained designer, I quickly picked up code and fell in love with creating experiences that an audience could interacted with. Good design and clean code are symbiotic. I'm driven to design and develop innovative user experiences based on sound research and strong client relationships. I employ best-in-class design principles to develop standards-based, accessible solutions using the latest techniques. I am a seasoned manager leading large, multi-disciplinary UX teams utilizing LeanUX/Agile methodologies.
Jason is a hard-working, diligent and talented ACD. He has embraced, studied and learned disciplines beyond his area of focus enabling him to be a well-rounded and key leader in my organization. Jason is always willing to pitch in when needed and does so without complaint. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Jason again in the future.view more
