When I joined Looker my primary task was to build a design team and design presence at Looker while increasing product reach by overhauling and simplifying product user experience for a this late stage business intelligence software start up.
A year and a half later, we have released numerous design-focused upgrades and introduced new features that appeal to a new audience of business users, including a content permission mechanism, upgraded visualization tooling, style guide, improved mobile experience, overhauled dashboards and a content discovery system. All aimed to capture interest and increase usage by business users and simplify usage of a very complex and technical data modeling and analytics tool.
These new features are enabling a new audience to customize their data journies and data interactions in a variety of ways.
