Testimonials

“As Co-founder of SecurityScorecard, heading the product team, I have engaged Karen Donoghue to work on multiple projects since early 2017 to help continue to mature our cybersecurity ratings platform.

Karen’s keen understanding of the needs and motivations of our user populations have helped evolve the user experience in our platform. Karen’s early efforts were formative in leading user research to surface new requirements, planning, and guiding interaction model design for work in VRM (Vendor Resource Management) and for our Atlas product.

In addition to her work with our product management and UX teams on new platform capabilities, Karen has also served as a trusted Advisor to SecurityScorecard since the summer of 2017. I highly recommend Karen for early-stage companies requiring deep expertise in user experience.”

Sam Kassoumeh, Co-Founder & COO, SecurityScorecard

“Karen speedily and accurately converts ideas and narrative – written and spoken – into visual architectures that enable efficient product development and engineering. Her precise and pragmatic approach uncovers logical inconsistencies and inefficiencies while suggesting superior alternatives. She is incisive, collaborative, kind and the sort of consummate professional who makes everyone around her better.

Having worked with her on an early-stage venture, I very much look forward to the opportunity to work with Karen in the future.”

Michael Laskoff, Co-founder and former CEO of Annum Health, Founder & former CEO of AbleTo

“As founder and CEO of an early stage startup, I hired Karen Donoghue as an independent consultant to assist us in validating the requirements for our MVP prototype that incorporated a financial recommendation engine with tools for quantitative financial analysis. Working remotely, Karen rapidly helped us craft user stories and work flows for our MVP release, and helped us translate our requirements into a design for an easily-consumable, customizable product experience. In days, Karen learned our unique business needs and developed a series of flows and conceptual wireframes for our product, which helped us validate our early hypotheses and develop better presentations to early customers and investors.

Karen also advised us in preparing for user research interviews, coaching us in best practices for uncovering user needs through focused user research. Karen is an expert practitioner with very strong skills in working with founders on product design. I highly recommend her services.”

John Fleming, Founder & CEO, Kaavio

“As a co-founder of a financial planning SaaS platform for high net worth investors, I hired Karen Donoghue as an independent consultant to help the founding executive team plan the MVP release of the product offering. I was familiar with Karen’s work as a UX/PM consultant while I was in an executive role at T-Mobile in Seattle.

Karen works very collaboratively, rapidly delivering PM and UX assets to assist a product team in clarifying and validating requirements for a new product offering, helping to establish features and get to a prototype. As a consultant to our founding exec team, Karen worked collaboratively with our team to help establish requirements, validate and prioritize them and in turn define features and architectural attributes in the product user experience for a MVP release. Karen helped coach the team to use agile product planning methods as part of the product planning process. She expressed major UX concepts and flows that reflected our requirements and enabled all stakeholders to understand the end user experience. Karen rapidly delivered critical shareable artifacts such as flows and wireframes. She reviewed each iteration with the team to help establish feature prioritization and help the team get to a MVP definition.

Karen is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her services to software product teams. All of Karen’s work for our executive team was performed remotely and I appreciate her professional demeanor and the quality of her deliverables.”

Elisabeth Embry, Co-Founder, LogiQware

“While serving as a Computer Scientist at the US Department of Defense (CERDEC), I supervised Karen’s work on delivering novel concepts around enabling the management of networked rugged devices in fast-changing network topologies. Karen has a strong ability to look at large problems and design buildable solutions that work well for end-users. Her tenacious research into our signal soldier user population also uncovered a new persona, the reservist, and she designed unique training and onboarding experiences for this new user segment.  

As part of a new venture in 2020 I have been working with Karen and HumanLogic on another mobile device project. She has been able to mentor our team remotely and help us design and build a new device experience.  Karen is an expert in human computer interaction and I highly recommend her services for product teams.”
