Product Strategy and Management at Convergys
Ambrose is a true asset for anyone seeking a UI/UX Creative Lead who is prepared to wear many hats. His usability expertise and passion to solve user experience problems helped lead the way to a successful launch of our top Campaign Management Solutions project. His ability to rapidly build wire frames/mockups, provide elegant layouts and documented UI standards and best practices enabled our development/test cycles to move faster, communication to be more efficient and understanding of requirements to be more rich.
He is detail-oriented, and understands how to match business goals to graceful front-end interfaces and is never afraid to do whatever it takes to successfully meet or exceed expectations. He is always positive and forward-thinking on how he approaches new challenges and is an amazingly gifted talent.
Product Strategy and Management
Ambrose is a constant professional that does not allow anything to prevent delivering the best user experience possible. Ambrose joined my project toward the end of a release and not only did the project deliver as schedule, the fidelity of the solution was improved by Ambrose.
Ambrose is not satisified with successes, he consistantly is looking to improve product using his exceptional design skills.
Experienced Technology Strategy Executive, Product Manager, Agile Product Owner and Sr. R&D Manager
I haven't worked with many UI/Usability Engineers before, but Ambrose has set the bar pretty high as far as what I expect subsequent ones should perform. He joined the group when the project was halfway complete and did an outstanding job getting the knowledge he needed to become productive right away. Ambrose has done a fantastic job keeping the engineers honest when it comes to improving the product's usability on top of developing style guides and icons for the product.
Creative Director merely scratches the surface of Ambrose's numerous talents. In addition to his obvious artistic abilities (see portfolio), Ambrose was called upon to assimilate large volumes of data and transform it into meaningful presentations. He is thorough without producing "data overload". His methodical approach to solving problems and willingness to teach others raises everyone's productivity levels. In addition to that, Ambrose is just a damn nice guy.
National Director of Sales
Nexstar New Media platform's innovative style can be directly attributed to Ambrose's sharp eye, design expertise, and creativity. The team could not have produced our station sites, Nexstar's corporate website without his keen attention to detail, thoughtful approach to designing interfaces that effectively engage our core audience, and an entrepreneurial mindset. I knew I could rely on Ambrose to help get our New Media start-up off the ground.
Sr. Vice President
I came to know Ambrose Rivera during the start-up phase of Nexstar Broadcasting's e-Media's efforts. Ambrose was always patient and helpful with me as we rebuilt our internet presence and helped convey the company's vision for this segment of the business.
Ambrose has a keen eye for creative elements and is able to communicate those ideas clearly - as well as follow-up with co-workers to ensure a standard look. Very professional and personable.
Managing Editor of Digital Media
When our New Media initiative rolled out at KTAB/KRBC, Ambrose was our primary contact for training and setting up our website. He is a great person to learn from, and explained everything we needed to know in a clear, concise manner. He also led the support team for our site after launch, and was always great with meeting our needs and making sure we had everything we needed to move forward.
eMedia Support Coordinator
Ambrose was a dedicated employee that I felt truly had the best interest of the company at heart. His willingness to do whatever it took to get the job done was impressive as well. He had qualities that unfortunately you don't often see in the country anymore and he will be sorely missed.
