Reveal Chat

Reveal Chat was a startup dedicated to "finding a cure for loneliness." I was one of the first employees, and implemented user-facing features for desktop/mobile web using Ruby on Rails, HAML, HTML, CSS/SCSS, and jQuery. I also performed usability/customer development tests, sketched user flows, and iterated on features to improve UX and product growth on web/iOS. I ran various lightweight experiments to improve growth and validated features with metrics.

In under nine months, Reveal Chat scaled from 10,000 users to over 1 million users. In 2015, Reveal Chat was acquired by Rhapsody International (now Napster).
