Amy Roberts is a product designer currently based in Austin, TX.


I’m Amy, a digital product designer with experience in consumer and enterprise

With over eight years of experience designing interfaces, I’ve been fortunate to work for small businesses and agencies as well as talented in-house product teams like Microsoft Teams. A strong advocate of lifelong learning, I hold an undergraduate degree in design, a masters in Human-Computer Interaction (MHCI+D) and an MBA (Smartly MBA).

I believe in validating ideas with real people early to create a better product, and one of my favorite activities is leading design sprints. I feel most fulfilled in an environment where I can work across all stages of product design—from UX to visual. My fascination with messaging and online communities has led me to work for Zello, leading design for a product focused on real-time voice communication, and now Signal, a private messaging app.

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling to new places, trying new foods, and working on my next cosplay. Sketching, painting, or sewing, I enjoy working with my hands just as much as creating digitally, and I take pride in my resourcefulness and ability to problem-solve.
