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 assigned to focuses on store stability and optimization solutions. The purview of our deliverables fall within enterprise application upgrades, full system replacements in the store or corporate environment and producing user-driven solutions to all of our stakeholders.
As a designer at DSG, we are 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
Applying .CSS (when necessary)
Utilizing design systems that we have in place/creating systems that we do not
