Meet Madeline Engle, User Experience Designer

July 16, 2018

Hey, Madeline! What’s got you most excited about joining Zenefits?

I’m excited to join the Zenefits team because I’m inspired by platforms and products that make a complex ecosystem of information simpler for the user, which is what Zenefits has done in the HR realm. I’m excited to be able to contribute to and grow this product through design.

What are you hoping to accomplish at ZenNation?

As a UX designer, I want to help make the user experience of Zenefits even more intuitive and seamless than it already is. In challenging myself to help the platform and products be the best for the customer, I also want to challenge myself to learn and evolve as a designer.

Who inspires you and why?

Photographers inspire me – I’m very into photography myself and appreciate the unique approach different people take to capturing subject matter. I love how the same thing can look completely different to multiple people.

If you could invent an ice cream flavor, what would it be?

Spicy JalapeƱo Margarita!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Who gave you that advice?

The best advice I’ve ever received was from a college friend. It was during a period of self-doubt I went through where I questioned everything – “what if this goes wrong, what if I embarrass myself, what if I fail?” And she responded with “Well, what if it’s amazing, instead?” Since then I have approached life with a more optimistic and adventurous outlook.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I enjoy writing, being at the beach, meditating, going to museums, painting, and taking care of the ridiculous amount of house plants that I have.
