Michael Kennedy is a Designer, trained Design Thinking Facilitator, and User Experience Researcher seeking a creative and collaborative team in the greater Boston area.
At IBM I took a unique hybrid role which has allowed me to put my design experience to the task while also conducting user research for a best-in-class enterprise cyber security product.
Conducted research at scale for a large suite of consumer web applications including HostGator, BlueHost, and Constant Contact. Coordinated globally with Agile teams in many locations.
As User Experience Researcher at Constant Contact I conducted hundreds of usability tests and on-site interviews with users of an online marketing tool. I developed a passion for User Centered Design and Design Thinking, loved participating in Innovation Jams, and enjoyed the camaraderie of a large team of user experience practitioners. It was a dream job!
