Will Hacker

Hi, my name is Will. I’m a senior UX professional experienced in designing applications and websites for desktop, tablet, and smartphone users. I’m an Interaction Design Manager at Cars.com, where I lead a team responsible for experience design and usability of a portfolio of consumer-facing automotive shopping, research, and financing products.

I’m also the author of Mobile Prototyping With Axure 7, and speak and write about user experience, mobile design, and agile software development. I also lead workshops on various aspects of prototyping with Axure RP.

My design experience includes B2C and B2B ecommerce, financial services, online automotive research and advertising, and real estate lending and evaluation applications. I’m experienced in agile/scrum development environments. I also hold a Master’s in Human-Computer Interaction from DePaul University.

I’ve served as Section 508 and WAI subject matter expert for OfficeMax and Boise Cascade, both Fortune 500 B2C and B2B companies with multi-billion dollar ecommerce websites. Prior to immersing myself in UX design, I worked in web application development doing front-end design and coding using standards-based XHTML/CSS/JS. I also have worked in a web design consulting role with commercial real estate clients.

My resume is over here.
