About Me

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

I am currently a User Experience Designer at DICK’S Sporting Goods (DSG), a Social Media Manager for CBS, and a full-time graduate student. Designers at DSG are split into Product Teams; each of which feature a Product Manager, Designer(s) and Engineers.

The Product Team that I am working with is the In-Store Marketing team. Our goal is to boost the in-store experience for associates and customers through effective, user-centric solutions. 

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 (when necessary)

  • Utilizing design systems that we have in place/creating systems when we do not
