Beginning this project, our primary objective was to research, validate, and forecast the NextStep business model in order to create a million dollar investment deck. This process consisted of surveying and interviewing our target market, developing employer partnerships, defining financial models, and designing an initial user interface for both mobile and web apps.
By understanding resource constraints and desired milestones, we then prioritized business requirements to develop a product roadmap for a beta mobile app release. This product roadmap was influenced by our employer and content partners to meet aggressive deadlines.
We created user experience specs, architecture diagrams, and outlined technical documentation to drive user interface design, and backend and frontend engineering.
Throughout our app development process, we continue to test, iterate, and deploy production ready software.
