Speakers

Marc Haumann

Marc is a lead product designer at Lyft, where he helps create the digital experiences that connect communities. He has had a hand in nearly every part of the app since its inception, and currently focuses on the passenger experience. Previously, he studied industrial design at RISD, and then joined Zimride (which became Lyft). In his free time he's a photographer and musician, and is writing an album with a friend.

Vicki Tan

Vicki is a product designer at Lyft, focusing on creating the perfect experience for passengers. Previously, she was at Google, working on behavior assessment and predicting performance in the long-term. Prior to that she was in academia, working in pediatric oncology, pulmonology and alcoholism research. She likes listening to podcasts, climbing rocks, and riding motorcycles.

Energizing the Lyft Passenger Experience

What started out as a series of isolated improvements to the Lyft app became an entire redesign. We’ll share our story of this cross-functional effort, the challenges we faced along the way, and how research played an integral role in guiding and validating our designs.
