Geraldi Prenata
UX Intern

Last Friday, I completed my 13-week summer internship with Takeoff Technologies as a UX intern. I really enjoy working in such a warm, friendly, and collaborative environment. I learned about creating user personas, performing user research, testing, and interview for our fulfillment & supply chain apps. I learned how to conduct an effective competitive analysis and analogous research to gain insights on current trends of competitors and eGrocery market. I also learned how to analyze user behavior and engagement using different analytical tools, and implement the findings to further improve our apps usability and features. Last but not least, I would like to thank my manager Becky Carpenter and Laura Cody from the UX team for teaching me the principles of Lean UX, product design, and collaboration with other departments.
