About Monica S.

Thanks SO MUCH for the interest. I am currently not available for new work.

I am a digital product developer and mainly focus on:

A) the strategic analysis between what the customer requests and what can be done in the universe of available solutions for what budget

B) rapid implementation / wireframing / MVP creation

C) database architecture, content types creation, pilot projects

I am interested in building, growing, and scaling digital products that tell an underlying story, engage with end users, and make a positive difference.

I am most interested in connecting with you if your project has at least 12 of the following:

+ Serves/supports women, children, families, students
+ Serves/supports underrepresented minorities
+ Eco-conscious, eco-friendly, environmentally-helpful, organic, sustainable, fair trade
+ Focuses on sharing knowledge or sharing stories
+ You have a demonstrated committed to the project (skin)
+ Education-related / helps people learn
+ Related to: open communication, transparency, sharing information, knowledge transfer
+ Makes a positive social difference
+ Team is super-passionate about the project - will do what it takes
+ Focused on your idea - you have thought about most of the angles
+ Communication, communication, communication
+ Honest, no time for lies or dissembling
+ Transparent - nothing to hide
+ Seeks the greater good
+ Desires to make a tangible difference through your product or offering
+ You understand your marketplace
+ You have done market research
+ You have built a potential list of clients or customers or you have existing clients or customers
+ You have a well-thought-out business plan
+ You have functional specifications written out, or some idea of them

I have been building websites since 1999 and have an array of experiences in creating functional specifications, rapid prototyping, launching MVPs, community management, product management, sales & marketing, content editing, and overall strategy.

I am interested in a challenge. I am interested in something which disrupts / makes an industry more efficient / provides more information to more people. I am interested in expanding my tech skills especially in relation to underserved/underrepresented populations (the "next billion"), global opportunities, those serving the elderly/Boomers, and products and services that make life better.

I'm interested in continuous personal development and learning, and I feel like I've been exposed to enough challenges, obstacles, and issues that I am flexible in dealing with adversity.

Life is short, let's make the most of our time here!

Please connect with me through http://www.linkedin.com/in/monicaflores
If I am not able to assist at this time, the network I am a part of has many bright, energetic people who may be available.

Build your team to be widely diverse -- in doing so I believe you gain multiple perspectives & a stronger ability to collect better data, challenge underlying assumptions, & iteratively improve your end product.
