From May 2021 to April 2022, I was a product design intern at Intuit.
I mainly worked on the in-product experience of TurboTax Canada, crafting the experience that millions of Canadians use to file their taxes.
Specific features I worked on include: improving TurboTax Desktop's auto-import feature, spearheading multiple re-designs, new and returning user experiences, and
learnings + reflections
Learn everything —
During my time at Intuit, I did everything from user interviews to visual design to design QA. I learned about all of the responsibilities of a product designer, and found out that I really enjoy writing documentation!
Enter the unknown —
This internship marked a lot of design 'firsts' for me: my first time working with developers and PMs, presenting to stakeholders, working with a complex design system, and more. I gained a deep understanding of the product life cycle and learned *so* much about how design works at an established organization.
Enjoy the ride B) —
During my time at Intuit, TurboTax Canada went through a couple of big shifts. I found my responsibilities changing often, which was difficult at times. Looking back, however, I learned the most during those times where we needed to move fast and (try not to) break things.
Sorry, this work is under NDA!
