Working at NTD was an incredible learning experience, both professionally and personally. Firstly, I gained experience as a member of small UX team that works within a large engineering division. This meant frequently meeting with developers to hash out the feasibility of potential features and handoff of design work.
We also worked with our Japan-based teams, and our tools have to work in both English and Japanese. As a result, I became familiar with differences in Japanese interfaces and cultural preferences. I learned how to design for text that looks vastly different once localized. Navigating our parent company's time zone, opinions, and language was a unique experience was another important takeaway for me.
For a million other lessons, for supporting me along the way, and for this amazing opportunity, I am incredibly grateful for my team. Thank you.
