  • CARTO Builder

    CARTO Builder is a web-based drag and drop analysis tool for analysts and business users to discover and predict key insights from location data. I've actively worked in the design and development of Builder as well as its predecessor - Editor. Builder was launched in July 2016 and since then my main areas of work in Builder have been related to improving user onboarding, user experience, and overall design of the product to ensure users are able to make of Builder their go-to analysis tool. CARTO Builder was awarded with a Laus award in the UX category in 2017.
