I am a UI Designer for the HRB product, which is an HR/Benefits application delivered via the web. I’m responsible for developing a good user experience for this product. As part of the software development lifecycle, we design the interface between customers and the mechanics that run the application. Our job is to turn business objectives into application features, focusing on what customers see on the web. I feel that I’m most creative in the morning, so I like sketching and working things out before lunch. Like most corporations, we have formal meetings, but we’re encouraged to collaborate with colleagues on an informal basis, which I’ve found to be highly effective and productive.

We’re an industry leader. We’re goal-oriented and ready to tackle problems, all of which make me very optimistic about my future at the company. The work-life balance is better here than other places I’ve been. Expectations are clear, but the details on how and when to get tasks accomplished are left to you.
In terms of my position as a UI Designer, ADP places a strong emphasis on user experience, which is refreshing. In other companies those decisions are left to individuals who don’t necessarily focus on the user. We’re also very responsive, routinely polling our customers and always looking for areas of improvement. I think it’s great that a company like ADP acquires strategic companies; each brings a new voice to the table. So we never get set in our ways. Search all Technology Jobs
During my ADP interview, I met a great cross-section of people. It felt less like a formal interview and more like a conversation—talking about issues, challenges and opportunities we all had in common. After I left, it took about an hour to get the smile off my face. For me, ADP was the place to work.
A proven record of delivering on promises and project goals is the basis for my success at ADP. To get ahead, you also have to be willing to accept responsibility, which is why I raise my hand as much as possible. The next step in my career is Senior UI designer and then Lead UI Designer. I feel I’m privileged to be working with colleagues who share my passion. Search all Technology Jobs
I’m a bit of a technology junkie, so if a new gadget is sleek, trendy and hip, I probably have two of them. When it comes to hobbies, I enjoy traveling a lot. In recent years I’ve been on a road trip through New Mexico, went hiking in Ohio and traveled to Europe and to Japan.
When it comes to technical field trips, you don’t have to ask me twice. This year, our manager took our team to a User Experience Conference. Last year I went to a Java symposium. I’ve also attended the UI conference at ADP corporate in Roseland. In addition, I’ve learned a lot taking online courses for project management. I think it’s great that ADP invests in our ongoing education. Search all Technology Jobs
