Hi, my name is Gene Steratore.
I pride myself on thinking outside of the box and pursuing efficient, user-centric solutions to complex issues.
What I Do
As of now, I am a User Experience Designer at DICK’S Sporting Goods (DSG), a Social Media Manager for CBS and a full-time graduate student at Kent State University. All designers at DSG are split into product teams; each of which feature a Product Manager, Designer(s) and Engineers.
Currently, I am partnered with our In-Store Marketing product team. Our goal is to boost the in-store experience for associates and customers through effective, user-centric solutions that fall within the marketing space.
As a designer at DSG, I am responsible for:
Conducting research of any kind
Working in tandem with Product Managers and Engineers
Facilitating discussion amongst product teams or users
Conducting stakeholder interviews
Wire-framing low and high-level prototypes
Writing .CSS components and structuring style sheets
Utilizing design systems that we have in place/creating systems when we do not
Owning the Discovery process
