Hi there, I'm Effy Zhang.

I'm a product designer at Square. I have shipped features on various products across all platforms, including Square Point of Sale, Square Appointment, Customer Engagement and Employee Management tools. Previously, I worked at Samsung on Samsung TV and a “smart home” platform.
Outside of work, I spend my time making interactive art, hacking hardware, and teaching coding and design classes at Grey Area and CodePath.

I'm passionate about solving complex problems that have the meaningful social impact.
