Steeleye is a newly founded startup (Jan 2017) aiming to deliver an MVP to the market in a relatively short time frame. Steeleye intends to create a platform primarily for SMEs to satisfy MiFID II regulations, which will enter into effect in January 2018. The platform entails a communications and trades monitoring web-application and allows managers to initiate internal investigations, either when prompted by a regulatory authority, or for internal compliance.
I helped Steeleye’s team formulate the initial feature lineup and prioritize the design work. The primary actors in the platform are compliance managers that want proactively monitor their company’s trades & comms performance. It allows them to gather all existing data in a matter of minutes and generate a data report.
The design process required: - interviewing internal stakeholders and domain experts, - identifying primary business objectives (BOs), - creating multiple flows that would satisfy the BOs, - lining up story maps and wireframes to mockup interactions, - crafting visual designs for final signoff and handoff to developers.
