Spotify VS RDIO
As part of the interview process at Neustar, I was asked which experience I liked better, Spotify or RDIO? A short question with a not-so-short answer. Since this presentation was created, RDIO has shut down.
I pulled together an informal presentation around my answer. I include it here not because the presentation was well designed, but because it reflects my thought process in an informal, 'unsanitized' document.
Included here are screenshots of the original Spotify and RDIO experiences, plus visual designs I created to illustrate a unified solution. Ideally, I would have had more data and insight into user interaction and engagement.
For me, open communication, a culture of exploration and experimentation, and a thoughtful, analytical approach to problem solving, are all highly desirable attributes of any work environment. That's one of the reasons I am comfortable sharing a document this raw: if you appreciate this, we'll probably get along well.
