NBC News - Video Fronts

Product Development / UX / Web Development

During the first year of my work at NBC News I was tasked with implementing interactive user experience for the three major NBC News shows: Nightly News, Meet the Press and Dateline. In the first two months of working on the project I developed and delivered the first iteration of a framework that powered video watching experience on some parts of the NBCNews.com. I then continued developing this framework and made it easily adaptable for any playlist-based experiences throughout the site. Eventually over 40% of all video streams on the site were powered by my framework. The work that I performed on this project was:

  • Use HTML/JS/SASS to implement design requirements
  • Integrate analytics and advertisement platforms into the product
  • Take user research results and modify the product based on the results
  • Provide suggestions to creative director to improve the product
  • Extensive Browser testing and performance testing


Technologies used:

  • Backbone.js
  • Handlebars Templates
  • Node.js
  • CSS / SASS
  • Google Analytics
