Amy Ng, a Bay Area-based UX Designer, was talking about her early experiences at Glooko. Glooko's mission is straightforward: use technology to improve diabetes management. Amy works there now, but she started as a pharmacist, working her way up through Walgreens. Somewhere along the line, she found herself working as the staff pharmacist for a health tech startup, working side by side with designers. She saw how design transformed a burdensome process into an empowering experience.
When she first reached out to Glooko, she connected with a senior designer and had a two hour conversation about all the ways technology can improve the healthcare experience. As a pharmacist, she knew they were working on the right problems. As a designer, she was ready to solve problems at a larger scale. She joined, and so can you.
