VMware Switch


Enterprise workspace on a BYOD Android mobile device, operating in isolation from an employee’s personal data and applications. One tap on the device allowed enterprise employees to switch between their personal Android phone and their secure corporate workspace.


As a UX consultant to VMware in 2011-2012, I served as the UX Design lead for VMware Horizon Mobile, BYOD mobile virtualization platform for Android released in 2012. I designed the overall interaction model and Welcome Experience for the platform and several Android clients for Email and Data storage. 

Working closely with product management, engineering and the product marketing team, I used agile development methods to capture UX requirements and deliver a complete set of UX design specifications for the platform’s mobile clients. I participated in sprints with the engineering team and tracked my deliverables as user stories using Jira.


My deliverables included detailed wireframes and interaction specifications, as well as supervision of visual design asset creation done by a graphic designer with whom I collaborated. I also performed usability tests on the web-based administrative tool for IT managers to manage workspace deployments to enterprise employees’ personal devices.

Many of the UX and product design recommendations I made based on user research were considered by the product team and scheduled into subsequent sprints to improve the product experience. VMware’s executive leadership extended my contract six times during this engagement.
