I'm Josh Morse, an experienced product design leader.
Welcome to my site!
I’m a user experience professional based in the Denver-Boulder metro area of Colorado. I have over 15 years of digital experience spanning product design, research, team management, analytics, and front-end development. I lead the design for software products which have been recognized as best-in-class by top analysts Forrester and Gartner. I specialize in building out Lean UX teams at growing software companies.
I enjoy writing, and have published articles on the professional UX publication UX Collective. I am also active with a variety of local UX meetups. While I am primarily focused on team management and strategy, I also will work in Figma, often to review my team’s work and update our design system. I especially enjoy mentoring aspiring designers and creating a positive space for them to craft great products that users love.
Built a completely new governance product in under 6 months. This feature was explicitly credited with RightScale's top marks in the Gartner and Forester magic quadrant reports, which led to RightScale's acquisition.
A massive cross-company project that reinvented RightScale's cloud spend management platform through tailored cost recommendations, leading to a double-digit percentage increase in leads.
