I love being part of visionary, autonomous, fast moving teams that put users first and aren’t afraid of bold moves.
I'm Reuben Kihiu, and I love design.
Having had a background in software engineering, I always wanted to build more than just software.
I wanted to create products. And what better way to create products than to design them?
I have since embarked on a life-long, fulfilling and exciting journey to make better products.
Do you have a good product you’d like to make better? I’m here for you!
Some places I've worked at:
They never want me to leave. But alteast when I do, I leave impact.
I am a Springboard UX mentor, where I mentor students looking to transition into design.
I joined this remote team in April 2020 to work on a revolutionary product in edTech. I was instrumental in the pivoting of the product which eventually led to the creation of ScholarSite.
I wear multiple hats, from branding, product design, and you may occasionaly find me in a boardroom with Powerpoints. All in a days work.
Joining this team was exciting, as it helped me explore my curiosity with machines and engineering (Which I found to be quite good at). I design user interfaces for the products made at CDED, as well as general branding and design work.
I joined this team as a software developer, and it has been witness to my ultimate transition into UI/UX Design. Among many others, my final accomplishment was the successful launch of the Ficar App to market.
Just like CDED, I enjoyed working with engineers to build electronics, and design amazing user interfaces.
