Amicus helped non-profits turn their volunteers into fundraisers and advocates. We did this by building outreach tools that tapped into the Facebook graph. Instead of calling strangers, our app would connect volunteers to their friends, friends of friends, and neighbors. This resulted in much more effective outreach.
I’d been in touch with Seth, the founder, since before they left for YC in 2012. I joined when they got back and spent the next two years wearing every kind of hat. I re-evaluated its flows and overhauled its styles. The following is a sample of the Product Design projects I worked on.
Throughout my time at Amicus, we worked with organizations such as the HRC, AFL-CIO, DCCC, and Moms Demand Action. We were key in campaigns to stop anti-LGBT legislation. I’m incredibly proud of what we accomplished.
