Hey, I'm Fangru. I’m interested in discovering how and why people do things and then I apply those discoveries to create practical and impactful products.

Back in 2005 when expressing yourself on Sina Blog (a Chinese blogging platform) was all the rage, I spent hours customizing their blog templates by tweaking the CSS. Even though I had no idea what CSS was back then, I found myself immersed in the creativity of it all and became more curious about design and coding.

Speaking to my experience, I've worked on super agile product teams at 3 high-growth startups, which taught me how to make things happen with limited resources. I started out doing digital marketing in a social networking startup - Momo, which went public in Dec 2014. I then switch my career to design. Over the course of my 7 years as a designer, I've designed a wide range of different experiences, for a diverse set of users. I started at an events nonprofit, then fintech and insurance space when working in a design agency. I then moved to Vancouver and was designing for the business aviation management platform at Stellar Labs. I am currently part of the Recruiting Engine team at Amazon. This has allowed me to build an equally diverse skill-set that I apply to my product design process. View my resume

Outside my job, I have been mentoring other people for the past 3 years, mostly junior designers and people who were hoping to switch their careers to design. I enjoy helping people and seeing them achieve their goals. Offline, you can find me "exercising" with just dance, exploring the wild forests or the world of 3D design. My Instagram
