About Will

By day I'm a UX designer in fintech, by night, I'm a freelance designer. I apply design thinking to experiences and processes. I analyze how things are designed, built and used. I ask tough questions about existing experiences and processes and then work to enhance them.

I'm working to build Covailnt. Covailnt (pronounced Covalent, like the chemistry bond) is a web application for creative freelancers & small agencies. The goal is to connect freelancers, set them up to collaborate, and showcase their gained experience and ranking in real time.

Smart collaboration comes down to a few core things. Covailnt focuses on:

• Real Time Availability
Quickly see who has the bandwidth to collaborate on our efforts.

• Emotionally Intelligent Ranking
Rank is based on the input of both collaborators and rewards transparency

• Metric of Future Performance
Rank Potential, based on good collaboration habits and happy collaborators.

I'm looking for a technical resource to who share's the vision and can oversee the transition from MVP to scalable platform.
