"At Pivotal, I get to be part of the transformation that is happening with Cloud-Native applications. The best part of my day is when I'm interacting with customers and using the Pivotal technology stack to help them solve their business needs."
 
Leanne
UX Design
"My job has changed so much over the past 6 years - from designing mobile UI on early smartphone platforms to building a team of inspiring designers to growing our research-driven practice. I'm constantly learning! My day might include a scoping meeting with a potential client, working on a workshop plan for a Discovery & Framing, or matching designers to upcoming projects or rotations."
