About Jay Vorzimer:

As a progressive professional with over 20 years of corporate full-stack experience defining customer interactions and product experiences, I believe that I can bring valuable contributions to your team.

Formerly in my Lead UX/UI Design role with Booz Allen Hamilton, I pioneered with developers and successfully executed a redesign the current interactive recruitment experience for several branches of the United States military, ensuring a unified end-user experience across mobile and web platforms. Additionally, in my design role with Amazon, I pioneered with developers to institute Amazon Alexa across automotive infotainment systems while still on the assembly line. Proactively identifying innovative new approaches and improved solutions to define a product’s vision both motivate and drive me. 

My goal is to remain on the cutting-edge of systems thinking, innovative interactions, and accessibility all while retaining an impeccable visual style. This coupled with my expertise in human centered design and a passionate drive for turning complex problems into simple and engaging solutions, together creates a unique opportunity. 

As a collaborative team player, I am always searching for unique opportunities to impart valuable insights. With these qualities, I have facilitated positive change and impactful outcomes in previous projects.
