Yopa is an online estate agent that allows you to sell your home for a fixed fee. I joined Yopa when it was a start-up in 2015 is a UI/UX designer. As one of their very first employees I worked with the founders and a small product team to create the business from the ground up. Working very much in a start-up environment, I got involved in multiple aspects of planning and together with the product owner brainstormed and mapped out the entire user journey from scratch. Coupled with industry experience and a lot of competitor analysis we were able to develop the initial iteration of the product for our agents out in the field and our end users.
The majority of my time at Yopa was spent being part of the product team to develop ideas for new features, create prototypes, design the UI and in the early days assist in the front end development of the product using HTML, CSS and Angular.
Yopa has grown from strength to strength and is now one of the top 10 estate agencies in the country with still much of the product I assisted in creating still being used today.
