MessageBird is a Communication Platform as a Service (CPaaS) providing businesses and organizations many ways to communicate with their customers. From SMS to VoIP solutions and every messaging platform imaginable around the world. On top of owning its own infrastructure, there is a big software layer with a broad suite of products that I've worked on.
2015 – 2017
Blendle is an app where you can get your media from multiple sources. In the beginning, it had a pay-per-article business model, much like iTunes, where you could buy a specific interview for €0,70 without having to get a full subscription to that one magazine or newspaper. Later on, they introduced a subscription model for a selection of articles selected by in-house editors and matched to your interests by a machine learning model.
During my time there, I focused on the reading experience for our users; improving the timeline and reader, typographically matching the design of the print media, and improving user engagement.
