Hey everyone, popping in with another question that I’m sure has raised some debate. So here goes.
I’ve recently been contacted by an e-commerce company in South Africa. They have recently been acquired by one of the leading e-commerce companies here and they are now in a startup phase developing their service, as child company of the big e-commerce company.
The company has a website with basic functionality and then a mobile app (android & iOS) - just for some context.
So I’ve been given an assignment, as part of the recruitment process, to identify:
a) 1 major issue on the website,
b) 2 major issues on the app
Then after doing so, I need to create my solution as to how I would improve it, and obviously keeping UX trends and mobile conventions in mind. This solution should be suitable for the web and for both native apps - the company insisted on High Fidelity prototypes.
So what’s making me uncomfortable is that I’ve identified more issues that I can count and I have great ideas as to how I can improve on that but I don’t want to do that for the company’s actual products as my solutions could potentially improve the product dramatically (not boasting in my skill, but I’ve gained a lot of experience recently) and I have no guarantee that my solutions won’t be used - should I not get the job.
Should I insist on a fictional company and test or what do you guys suggest I do?
