Product Manager Intern (Summer 2017 & 2018)
Powering imagination as a Product Manager for Avatar and Developer at Roblox!
In 2017, I worked on player-facing Avatar features (Catalog integration in Avatar Editor, costumes & bundles, trail effects, pose creator, animation preview, etc.) on mobile, web and Xbox. I also collobrated with 6 Product interns to redesign Develop (now Create) page. I redesigned the Trading system, which significantly simplified the existing workflow and improved users’ trading experience. I also worked on search query auto-correction & recommendation system to optimize game search results.
In 2018, I worked on designing and building Rthro and over 200 Rthro-native bundles to provide users with a sophisticated avatar editing system and an extensive virtual catalog, giving them greater customization freedom to express creativity. I also launched the new Animation Editor in Studio, and led the cross-functional team through multiple innovative iterations such as Inverse Kinematics.
More cool features are coming soon, stay tuned!
