Jess Huang, Headshot

I don’t want to move needles. I want to solve problems.

I am a Senior Strategic Design Manager, Innovation & Design (formerly ADAPT) @ Bain & Company, based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I have over a decade of experience in human-centered product and UX design, agile development, Lean UX, design thinking and qualitative user research. Additionally, I have worked throughout my senior-level career to help build other designers’ careers through mentorship, teaching, speaking, and both team and project management.

Drawing on a diverse background in various startups and enterprise companies, I currently spend my days creating experiences, capabilities, and strategies for some of Bain’s top clients in a variety of industries, such as retail, restaurants, utilities, and enterprise technology. Alongside my case work, I am responsible for the professional development of 4 dedicated teammates as well as several others on an ad-hoc/unofficial basis.

I am passionate about teaching and mentoring up-and-coming designers, especially those who are career-changers and bootcamp grads.
