Who I am
Hello, I'm Blake Anderson, a product designer and developer based in San Francisco, CA. I've spent the last twelve years helping companies bring their ideas to life through strategic design and mobile experience development.
Where I’m from
I grew up in a town of 1,000 people in southwest Nebraska. I taught myself to program by convincing my mother to buy me a copy of "Teach yourself C++ in 24 hours." I later received a degree in Computer Science and Math. After school, I joined SnuggHome, a home energy auditing startup, as a full-stack engineer and employee #5. I departed SnuggHome to join Snapjoy, a photo management software company. At Snapjoy, I was employee #4 and developed all of the native apps. Snapjoy was acquired by Dropbox, which brought me to San Francisco. At Dropbox, I helped build their photo products, including the stand-alone app, Carousel. Ready to get back into early-stage startups, I joined ClassDojo as employee #8, assisting the company in redefining technology in the classroom through product design and development.
What I do
My value comes from years of hands-on experience as a lead developer and lead product designer. I've led teams from idea to product/market fit, product/market fit to hyper-growth, and growth to monetization. I'm uniquely positioned to provide holistic design and engineering solutions at nearly any stage of the product.
The three areas I’ve spent the most time focusing on:
→ Mobile development
→ Mobile design
→ Growth & Monetization strategy
The best thing to do is shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I get a large volume of inquiries, so it helps expedite things if you can tell me about you and your project upfront. If you have a project in mind that you think I'd be a good fit for, let's talk!
