Nikki Lee Olsen

Hey there, I’m Nikki! I'm a Product Designer and Frontend Engineer with 10+ years of experience creating products for the web.

Since graduating art school in 2012, I’ve spent my entire career honing both my product design and frontend development skills. I’ve designed and written production-ready frontend code for responsive websites, progressive web applications, reusable component libraries, emails, and more. My hybrid skillset allows me to communicate effectively with both designers and developers, often helping to bridge the gap between the two disciplines.

I also have a year of people management experience, during which I balanced maintaining my role as an individual contributor with managing a small team of designers. While managing, I worked to expand our team, establish design processes, led a cross-team working group for maintaining our component library, and more.

I’ve worked with some amazing nonprofits in the past, including The Humane League and ActBlue. I feel so lucky to have been able to put my skills to work for causes that are meaningful to me.

Recently, I’ve been taking some time off full-time work and have instead been filling my days with freelancing, volunteering, and learning to sew. That being said, I’m open to learning about new full-time opportunities, so please get in touch if you are looking for a designer/engineer hybrid!

I'm so excited to hear from you!

Loki the dog is very excited.

Porkchop the dog is such a jerk sometimes.

Looks like something went wrong.
