Since I joined LinkedIn, I played the key roles in many projects to enhance the features and power up the platform to drive more engagement to Sales Navigator, which also showed my fast execution, without sacrificing quality. • Launched the new Enterprise edition for Sales Navigator, which gives customers a fresh new choice to enjoy more features including TeamLink Extend. • Launched the redesigned Company (Account) page in Sales Navigator to give customers a brand new UI experience with more highlights and insights. • Launched the Admin Settings page in Sales Navigator to give admins a centralized place to set up important features for their contract, which could bring more satisfaction for user experience. • Launched a brand new page for customers to purchase and select between the Professional edition and Team edition, which not only offers our customer the ability to do bulk free trials but also gives them the clearer idea of what features they will get. Behind the scene, I used Voldemort to store the data and Hadoop job to offline process the data. • Improved the feed engagement by highlighting job changes to give users more up-to-date information about their prospects. • Introduced a free trial experience without asking for credit card, which could reduce user's hesitation to try our products. • Built the new cancellation experience for Sales Navigator. • Migrated our code base from spring framework to offspring framework.
