RECESS: VIRTUAL OFFICE

Alyssa Joines + Andy Sun + Jo Biscailuz

Recess, in collaboration with Andy Sun and Jo Biscailuz, is a product that would be proposed to Slack as something to integrate into their services. In our group of three, the roles for project development were divided as seen in the image below, with myself as the Lead Product Engineer.

We decided to focus our product on remote workers since our personal experiences with Slack have mostly revolved around out of office communication. In our initial research, we found statistics from the New York Times stating that 43% of employed Americans have spent some time working remotely which confirmed this direction. After looking into their experiences, we identified the pitfalls of the remote worker.
