We’re going to pull back the curtain on what it’s like to fire up a product design team at a local Charlotte startup. Ekos ran a successful, growing software business for 5 years without product designers or UX architects, so… where to begin? In this talk we’ll tell stories about our first year as a design team - what’s worked, what hasn’t, what’s next - and we’ll demo our Figma process, organization, and design library.
Ekos was founded in 2014 based on a love of craft beverages and software development. Our founders discovered that craft producers were using manual methods like spreadsheets and clipboards to manage their processes and knew there must be a better way.
The only options available were expensive and complicated ERP systems, so they set out to create Ekos, a business management system that was affordable, easy to use, and carefully crafted for craft manufacturers. Ekos is now the industry-leading software for beer, wine, and cider producers, with features and integrations to automate manual tasks like no other tool can.
We are taking on UX leader-specific topics and providing an opportunity for UX people managers to learn from each other, discuss different perspectives, and apply new solutions in their everyday work environment.
If you are a manager, director, or founder in the UX field, this conversation is geared towards you!
What to expect:
• Discuss and solve unique challenges for UX people managers
• Share our successes
• Connect with other local UX leaders
See you soon!
